New CFI fix for Epson Home Cinema 6500 UB, Pro Cinema 7500 UB

Greetings all,

Epson has just emailed me the new 1.09 firmware, with “fixes” to their creative frame interpolation.  This is just a heads up.  I’m going to try to get around to installing it tomorrow, and see how much better it is.

I had hoped that Epson would send it to me in installed in a Pro Cinema 7500 UB.  That would have let me run the 6500 UB with old firmware, side by side with the 7500 UB with the new version.  Alas, I’ll just have to take one last look at the CFI on the 6500 UB, then do the upgrade, and observe again.  Not as good, but any major improvements should be obvious.

And, I do have the Panasonic PT-AE3000 here so I will compare that with the 6500 UB with the new firmware.

Expect my first blog with my findings, probably Monday or Tuesday.  -art
