    Convergence Tool???

    I was browsing another forum - yes, sacriledge, I know - and came across this "tool" for adjusting convergence more easily and accurately. What do you think? Bully or bulls#%*!?

    Convergence Tool

    I don't see exactly how it works, but am interested. . . . You know how it is, anything for a better PQ. :yeah:

    I created my own "convergence tool" by simply taping together the three color filters that come with the Avia DVD. Works great, and achieves the same results as the tool mentioned on the website.

    Interesting that they called it the "rpCat". I wonder if Lex can sue for trademark infringement? (CAT?)

      Blooming does make convergence more difficult, but there is a simple answer to that. Simply turn the contrast and brightness way down during convergence. When you're done, reset the contrast and brightness with Avia or VE. I've been doing this for years with my crt front projector. And it doesn't cost anything.

        George, I set my contrast (and everything else) via VE or AVIA and then do my converging. I'd still like to get my convergence even better tho'. Are you talking setting it down below the recommended point?

        Always on the prowl for better PQ.

          I disable my built in line doubler on my Sony also before converging.

          David, yea, turning the controls way down usually helps, especially the contrast. I use Avia after a convergence to dial it back in.

            Tex,
            No, it's better to just turn brightness and contrast way down before you start convergence. You'll notice lines on the crosshatch become much clearer. Blue is the worst for blooming and it is much easier to work with when contrast and brightness are set WAY low. Like Pete says, after you finish converging is the time to reset your contrast and brightness with VE or Avia.
