    • It may not work and the brightness of lamps also varies. Some may be bright enough going past 2000 hours and some probably would not be bright enough.  I have two Sony SXRD projectors which became very dim after just 1800 hours and a JVC HD1 also became very dim after 1600 hours.  In those situation it doesn't matter if you do switch the projector to high lamp mode,  colour accuracy completely lost and gamma measure drop well below 1.3.  I had to replace to the lamps.  I do believe you will need to calibrate during the life span of the lamp, the brightness of lamp will also affect how other colours are display with the projector.

    • This is a typical design from the old days of analog US TV. It is wide enough for transmission channels AU 1 & 2 which was used for analog TV here but are no longer used. There is no it picks up signals from infront and behind along with much of the sides so does not focus on the signal in one direction. There is no directors for channels 28 - 51 UHF TV where more sensitivity is required. You would be much better off with http://www.matchmaster.com.au/digital-tv-antennas/01mm-de13/, remember that in lots of places vertical polarisation is also used so you will have to be able to turn any antenna on its side. https://myswitch.digitalready.gov.au/ will show you what channels and polarisations are used in every location. To match the sensitivity you need to add an amplifier which is what is in the sat king, however the Kingray also contains filters to keep out unwanted signals (4G ready and removes CB Radio)  https://www.kingray.net.au/catalogue/amplifiers/masthead-amplifiers/mhw35f.aspx https://www.kingray.net.au/media/457029/MHW-U35FS_IM_web.pdf You will also need a power injector https://www.kingray.net.au/catalogue/power-supplies-and-injectors/psk06f.aspx or https://www.kingray.net.au/catalogue/power-supplies-and-injectors/pik170fdc.aspx for 12 V DC  and some F connectored cables. This will give you much more reliable reception of TV in more places It is not designed to receive FM radio. http://www.matchmaster.com.au/digital-tv-antennas/03mm-1efm/ Alanh
    • Hey all, up for grabs today is a new and sealed AUS copy of Supergirl: Season One (3 discs) - $39 posted. First in best dressed. Cheers
    • Hope they do something (anything?) with Bourne. I loved the books as a teenager (The first book The Bourne Identity was rightly a classic) but it all sort of ends up going know where (despite , <wow> 13 plus books - I stopped after five or so I think). So a great fighting flick but I'd like it to do more than just be Daemon getting from the start to the end and promising to do it again next time.  Regards Peter Gillespie
