Had no idea this thread was still going. I still own three FW900's (well one SGi) and use the SGi here in my new apartment to play my console fighters. The other two sit in a storage room with their future's uncertain, not started up in 2 years.
I will have to go back and read if there is any...
I don't think the Odac can sound any better or worse than anything else around it. It can do math better which is its entire job. I mean it was designed and built out of spite to beat dac's costing hundreds more and simply by being the most accurate it can be.
I don't have any disk drives at all in my new PC. Any movie watching comes in the form of downloaded media. I have found a point of diminishing returns on 1080p content with H264 to sit around 6-8 gigs per hour. So a 15gig 1080p BluRay rips seem to be the best quality you need in order to take...
Hey Unkle Vito, Welcome back! I wanted to invite you to be a mod on the subreddit dedicated to the FW900. It isn't very populated right now but if / when it does start taking help requests and showoff posts it will be a WHOLE LOT more organized than this 6,000 page post...
http://www.reddit.com/r/fw900 There it is.. Same amount of posts on it since the last time I checked.. The creator is still around so I am sure he would be willing to grant a few more moderators if we all jumped on that bitch. I mean come on people. You don't even need to get a conformation...
There should have been another thread started for SpaceDiver (ass) to argue with whomever he likes so the MOST HELPFUL PERSON in all the internet doesn't leave this thread. OUR ONLY SOURCE OF HELP MOST TIMES..
Who gives a flying f uck if your conclusions about one meter is different than...
Hey.. Remember when this thread was about the greatest monitor of all time and not bickering about Spectrochromalithigraphs?
Anybody have any stories they want to share? Some interesting tid-bit about their first CRT and first LCD..
ANYTHING but a continuation of the last 4 pages.
When I focused my screen (or my projector) I used these.
As a bonus here is one I found for convergence. If you see purple anywhere your convergence is off. BUT I think it is impossible to remove it all.
Luck has little to do with it. Just eBay perseverance and a storage room. Paid roughly $250 for each of mine (3) and only shipped the first. Living in new york has some advantages. I suppose if you live in South Dakota there would be far less chance of them showing up.
The people who could tell what it was in the total darkness took note. Didn't get any real complements until I was packing up and all the lights turned on.

Nobody told me that. They were just amazed I got it out there...
I took my baby on a vacation. A 150 mile excursion to the GXL out in Philly. Shown here with ITman496 the man responsible for the Porsche gauges working.

My issue is definitely cable/connection related. I wonder if this new path past my power strip has anything to do with the ghosts. I put a ferrite core around the 5 smallish coax leading to the bnc's. Didn't seem to do much. Perhaps moving it to the end of the DVI cable instead.
OK, Switched my DVI-VGA adapter and 4' BNC cable to a 10' DVI-i Extension and a DVI-I to BNC and now I am getting some 3/16" ghosts to the right of anything with high contrast.
I use to get this with bad DVI to VGA adapters and unfortunately I can't swap out the $40 DVI to BNC I bought...
You really shouldn't be going edge to edge if you aren't running a custom res. You usually have to leave 7/16" of black on the top, bottom or split between the two to have that circle be round.
Can I build a DVI-A to...
Anyone know of or want to make a short youtube video describing the process of calibrating this monitor with Windas? Reading instructions and hearing/seeing someone complete them are totally different. I would set out with far greater confidence if the steps were shown to me instead of trying to...
OK, Upgrade time!
(Graphics card, not monitor!)
What is the bottom line on who's cards support the FW900 best?
I don't run crazy res/hz just 1920x1200 @ 85hz and I just want the best software/driver support for this CRT I can get.
