battery to the contact plate.
Insert the battery into the lower compartment and put the cover back.
4-1
The DTV-943 can be controlled with
a. The RCU
b. The hardwired RCU (cable not included)
c. The local keyboard
The procedure and results of controlling the projector with either of these
RCU options is essentially the same.
c. Using your RCU.
Before using your RCU, it is necessary to enter the projector address into
the RCU (only when that address is between 1 and 9). The projector with
the corresponding address will listen to that specific RCU.
When address 0, ‘zero address’is programmed into the RCU, every projector, without exception will listen to the commands given by this RCU.
How to display a projector address?
How to use your RCU
a) Point the front of the RCU towards the projector
b) RCU used in a hardwired configuration.
Press the ADDRESS key (recessed key on the RCU) with a pencil. The
projector’s address will be displayed in a ‘Text box’. This text box disappears after a few seconds.
To continue using your RCU, it is necessary to enter the same address
with the digit buttons (address between 0 and 9). For example, if the
Address Key displays projector address 003, then press the “3” digit button on the RCU to set the RCU’s address to match the projector’s address.
Do not press digit 003. This will address the remote to ‘0’and control all
projectors in the room.
How to program an address into the RCU?
Press the ADDRESS key (recessed key on the RCU) with a pencil and
enter the address with the digit buttons. That address can be any digit
between 0 and 9.
When programming ‘0’, zero address, the RCU will control a projector
regardless of the projector’s address. This feature allows multiple projectors with different addresses to be controlled by a single RCU.
Plug one end of the remote cable in the connector on the bottom of the
RCU and the second side in the connector in the rear panel of the DTV943 labeled ‘REMOTE’.
Projector Address
a. Hardware set up of the projector address.
Every projector requires an individual address between 0 and 255 which
is set with hardware DIP switches inside the projector. To change that
address, contact a RUNCO authorized technician.
b. How to control the projector.
The projector’s address may be set to any value between 0 and 255.
When the address is set, the projector can be controlled now with :
-the RCU for addresses between 1 and 9.
-computer, e.g. IBM PC (or compatible), Apple MAC, etc. for
addresses between 0 and 255.
Note : A projector will respond to a RCU set to an address of ‘0’regardless of what address is set in the projector itself. Address “0” is therefore
a universal address.

for a short time.
4-3
Analog Picture Controls
Tint Control
The analog picture controls can be adjusted with the RCU. The control
keys are located on the lower right side of the key panel of the RCU and
indicated with the name of the control and an icon.
When an analog picture control is pressed, a text box with bar scale and
the function name of the control, e.g. ‘brightness...’appears on the screen
(only if ‘TEXT’is ON). The length of the bar scale indicates the current
memorized setting for this source. The bar scale changes as the + or - buttons of the control are pressed.
Tint is only active for Video and S-Video. Tint control is effective only
when using the NTSC 4.43 or NTSC 3.58 system. A bar scale gives a

ENTER to select the projector warm up menu.
The ON/OFF option can be toggled with the ENTER key.
When in the ON position (and the CRT run in cycle is OFF), the projector can start
up with a warm up period of 20 minutes. During the start up a warm up menu will
be displayed. This menu offers the possibility to skip the warm up period anyway
by pressing the EXIT key and offers the possibility to adjust the horizontal and
vertical amplitude of the white image with the control disc. During this warm up
period, a full white image is shifted on the CRT faceplate to avoid a burn in.
Every 30 seconds a text box will be displayed on another place on the screen with
the remaining time to go.
When EXIT is pressed during this warm up period, the warm up menu will be
redisplayed with the remaining time indication. Press another time EXIT to interrupt the warm up cycle.
When the warm up option is OFF, when switching on the projector, it starts immediately with the projection of the selected source.
Memorybanks
This function allows the creation of various aspect ratios while the horizontal scan
rate stays the same. When on, this function allows 1 button access to each aspect
ratio.
DEFAULT = ON
If the feature is ON, then the unit will have a capacity of having eight (8) separate
aspect ratios within the same frequency (there are a total of 32 separate memories;
if all eight memorybanks are used, for example, then total of 4 frequencies can be
input (4 freqs x 8 memorybanks=32). To create different memories, clear all the
menus from the screen (press “exit” until the screen is clear). Then, press ENTER.
A box will appear in the bottom right corner indicating which memorybank the
unit is in, I.E. “MEMORYBANK 1”. Next press a number (1-8) representing
which memorybank the new screen size will be assigned to. The new memorybank
number will be displayed. To ensure the new memory is saved, perform any convergence function on the new memory.
This function is intended for customers with a need for various aspect ratios, especially those with widescreen. From the Runco factory, three (3) memorybanks are
assigned for each frequency:
Memorybank1: Wide Screen (1.1.78)
Memorybank2: Anamorphic
Memorybank3: 3:4 (1.1.33)
If this feature is OFF, then each of the 32 memories will be scan rate dependent,
in other words, each of 32 memories MUST have a different frequency. This is
especially useful for use with computers and their different resolutions.

APPENDIX 1
RS 232 Control
By far, the most accurate way to control or integrate the DTV-943 into a home theater system is by RS 232 control. In this section,
you will find hardware configuration and how to format the control data, command strings and examples.
Hardware Configuration
RS232 Connector 9PIN D-SUB PC-AT TYPE. Projector has female type.
To establish communications with the projector, the following conditions must be made:
NOTE: All wires are straight through. DO NOT cross PINS 2 to 3 as in a null modem
configuration.
Alternatively, the connections can be made as follows (absolute minimum of wires):
NOTE: Some automation systems may only use/require pins 3, 2, 5 be connected.
How to format the control data
Every command sent to the projector is a group of 9 bytes that is called a record. Even a
simple ON command is sent as a record. Below is an explanation of the syntax of a record.
It is not necessary to memorize the syntax since the next section contains a chart of strings
that work with any DTV-943 and can be entered directly into most automation systems to
control all the functions of the projector.
APP-1
Sending a RECORD (single instruction)
A RECORD consists of 9 bytes of information in the following order:
STX, OFFS, ADR, CMD, DAT1, DAT2, DAT3, DAT4, CHKS
Where:
STX
- 02H
Make projector(s) listen for its (their) unique address.
OFFS
- (1-255)
Offset you choose so that none of the data or CMDs - 02H (STX).
Normally set the offset to 0.
ADRe
- (1-255)
Number corresponding to projector ’s unique address (see dip switch setting).
If you are unsure of your projector’s address, set this to 0.
It will talk to your projector regardless of its address.
CMDe
- (1-255)
The command to be sent to the projector (see list of commands).
See command list for all possible functions.
DAT1e - (1-255)
Additional data to be sent (set to 0 if not used)
DAT2e - (1-255)
Additional data to be sent (set to 0 if not used)
DAT3e - (1-255)
Additional data to be sent (set to 0 if not used)
DAT4e - (1-255)
Additional data to be sent (set to 0 if not used)
CHKSe - (ADR + CMD + DAT1 + DAT2 + DAT3 + DAT4) mod 256 - add everything and keep
only 2 right most digits
Note: Bytes from ADR to CHKS are shown in bold with the suffix ‘e’ to indicate the offset is added before sending the byte.

EYE-QTM Autoconvergence
OVERVIEW
The EYE-QTM auto-convergence system allows for faster and more accurate convergence when used by the installer upon initial installation. The EYE-Q TM system also allows the end-user to perform occasional convergence touch ups without having to learn the complex convergence procedure using the TOUCH-UP option in the EYE-QTM menu. By doing so, the end-user can be assured that the
image quality is always at its best.
To work correctly, the installer must complete geometry (setting green only) for one source which is the reference geometry. Every
memory that is auto-converged after that will use the same geometry as the reference. In most applications, however, multiple aspect
ratios are to be converged, each with its own unique geometry. In this case, the geometry for each aspect ratio needs to be completed
first, the EYE-Q TM will converge the red and blue colors to the green for each aspect ratio.
The last step is for the installer to touch-up the convergence using the fine convergence using the fine convergence adjustments for the
red and the blue. The EYE-QTM is typically 95% accurate when doing a FULLAUTOCONVERGENCE adjustment, depending on
screen size and how well the initial EYE-QTM setup was performed.
THE QUICK GUIDE to using the EYE-QTM system:
Do geometry for the current memory bank (see geometry section)
Focus the lens in EYE-Q TM SETUP menu
Center the camera in EYE-Q TM SETUP menu
Learn reference in EYE-Q TM SETUP menu
Select AUTO-CONVERGENCE then ALIGN on current source from the EYE-Q TM
menu
If all five steps were completed successfully, the projector will have already begun to converge red and blue automatically at this time.
Please read further for detailed instructions of each adjustment.
APX-1
Easy-to-use, high precision automatic convergence system.
Various options on the menu offer you the solution for your own
individual needs:
Align: convergence starts for the current image situation
Align from mid-position: convergence starts from mid-position.
Touch-up: convergence starts when the source switches or
after a user-defined time: alignment of static convergence is
almost invisible for the audience.
Easy-to-use, high precision automatic geometry system
Various options on the menu offer a comprehensive solution to
your geometry requirements:
Quick auto-picture: aligns geometry within 45 seconds.
Full auto-picture: aligns geometry very accurately followed
by auto convergence. This option offers a very powerful
adjustment tool.
Note: Must have a reference geometry set up first for these options.
Compact, built-in system
A very compact, monochrome CCD camera
Use of Sub-Pixel Resolution Techniques, a state-of -the -art proprietary Digital Signal Processing System.
Preparing your EYE-QTM
When the lens of the EYE-QTM is covered with the lens protection
cap, ensure to remove this cap first before starting the adjustment
procedure for the EYE-Q TM.

Press the <ENTER> button to set the correct projector configuration.
The EYE-QTM SETUPmenu provides you with easy to use methods
to focus the camera lens and to center the camera.
Please pay attention while doing it, as a properly focused camera lens and correctly centered camera are prerequisites for a
perfect automatic convergence.
APX-4
FOCUSING THE CAMERA LENS
The lens of the camera must be focused properly on the projection
screen. Follow the steps described below:
In the EYE-QTM SETUP menu, highlight FOCUS THE LENS
by pushing the up or down keys of the control disc.
Press the <ENTER> button to start up the process.
A pattern of horizontal alternating green/black bars will be projected onto the screen, together with a textbox. Inside the box, the text
“CAMERA FOCUS” indicates the item subject to adjustment and
under the text, a numeric bar scale (from 0 to 99) will visualize the
correction.
To obtain a correctly focused camera, turn the lens until maximum
readout. The value of the stabilized maximum readout will be in
the range between 60 and 90, depending on ambient light.
In rear projection, the maximum value can be less than 60 dependent on ambient light.
After finishing the correction, press the <EXIT> button to return to
the EYE-QTM menu
APX-5
CENTERING THE CAMERA
The camera must be centered in middle of the projection screen.
Follow the steps described below:
Highlight CENTER CAMERA by pushing the up or down
keys of the control disc.
Press the <ENTER> button to start up the process.
Note: It is critical that the green raster of the presently selected
source is centered on the CRT faceplate. Otherwise, the
camera will not be centered properly.
CENTERING THE CAMERAHORIZONTALLY
One vertically centered green bar will be projected onto the screen,
together with a text box. Inside the box, the text of “CAMERA
ALIGNMENT HORIZONTAL” indicates the item subject to
adjustment and a symmetrical bar scale (from -50 to +50) under
text.
If the indicated value below the bar scale is not equal to zero (i.e.
the black highlight is not in the middle of the bar scale), the camera is not centered horizontally. Follow the steps below to center
the camera horizontally:
Turn the knob situated on the upper-right corner of the camera
clockwise or counter clockwise until the highlight is in the middle
of the bar scale (i.e. the indicated value becomes zero);
Press the <ENTER> button to continue with the camera vertical
centering.
Note: An easy way to remember the H+Vadjustments is: The knob
located up/down from the fixed screw is vertical adjustment.
The knob located left/right from the fixed screw is horizontal adjustment.
APX-6
CENTERING THE CAMERAVERTICALLY
One horizontally centered green bar will be projected onto the
screen, together with a text box. Inside the box, the text of “CAMERA ALIGNMENT VERTICAL” indicates the item subject to
adjustment and a symmetrical bar scale (from -50 to +50) under the
text.
If the indicated value below the bar scale is not equal to zero (i.e.
the black highlight is not in the middle of the bar scale), the camera is not centered vertically. Follow the steps below to center the
camera vertically:
Turn the knob situated on lower-left corner of the camera
clockwise or counter clockwise until the highlight is in the
middle of the bar scale (i.e. the indicated value becomes
zero).
After finishing the vertical centering, press the <ENTER> button
to return to the EYE-QTM menu.
When installed in a retro projector, the centering procedure is not
necessary and not possible as the camera mounting is fixed.
SET TOUCH-UP OPTIONS
For convergence purpose, the screen is divided into 25 areas.
Every area has its unique number from 1 to 25. Touch-up adjust
the Area No. 1. This adjustment is also called the “static convergence”.
The Touch-up can be set on Source or on Timer.
Touch-up on Source means when switching from one source to
another, the static convergence will be carried automatically.
Touch-up on Timer means whenever the user-defined period of
time has elapsed the static convergence will be adjusted automatically.
Touch-up is an option the customer can use periodically after a
final install is complete. This will insure image quality is at its
best.
TOUCH-UP ON SOURCE ON/OFF
Follow the steps below to set the option ON/OFF:
Push up or down keys of the control disc to highlight ON
SOURCE SWITCH: off;
Press the <EXIT> button to return to the EYE-QTM menu.
APX-7
TOUCH-UP ON TIMER
This option allows the static convergence to be carried out automatically after a user-defined time, which can be programmed in
hours and/or minutes.
To program the touch-up on Timer:
Push up or down keys of the control disc to highlight ON
TIMER: off;
Press the <ENTER> button to switch it to ON and the preset
time will be displayed;
Press the <TEXT> button to enter the TOUCH-UP TIMER
menu;
Push left or right keys of the control disc to highlight the digit

Use the numeric keys to enter a desire value;
Press the <ENTER> button to confirm and the EYE-QTM
SETUP menu will return on the screen; or press the <EXIT>
button to leave the preset value untouched and return to the
EYE-QTM SETUP menu.
Press the <EXIT> button to return to the EYE-QTM menu.
When one adjust geometry by hand, a reference screen and a reference pattern are required. There are a lot of possibilities for a reference screen. A test pattern for a video test disc is normally used.
See geometry section of manual for more information. Once a
selection of a reference screen and a reference pattern is made,
adjusting geometry is only a matter of converging these two elements.
EYE-QTM requires a reference for adjusting geometry. The simplest
way to have a reference screen is to adjust one source by hand,
which then serves as a reference for all other sources. After adjusting a source, the reference is learned by EYE-QTM and stored in
non-volatile memory. Having this Reference Source in memory
EYE-QTM can adjust all other sources to have the same geometry as
the Reference Source.
REFERENCE SOURCE
Before any geometric adjustment can be done, the user Must learn
a Reference Source. This process is ONLY DONE ONCE since the
Reference will be stored in non-volatile memory. If however, the
projector is moved from its position, then the Learn Reference procedure must be repeated. After learning a Reference do not touch
the camera (for focusing and centering).
If using multi-aspect ratios, a Reference Geometry must be done
for each aspect ratio.
ADJUSTING OTHER SOURCES
Once a Reference Source is in memory, other sources are aligned
with the same geometry as the Reference Source. If no Reference
Source is learned, the resulting geometry will be unpredictable.
APX-8
LEARNING A REFERENCE
Adjust one Reference Source with perfect geometry. This source can have either horizontal or vertical frequency. Remember that other sources will have the same geometry
as this Reference Source. This means that if a source has 4:3 aspect ratio, all sources will
be adjusted with a 4:3 aspect ratio and the same horizontal and vertical amplitudes.
Follow the steps below to select:
Enter in the Adjustment Mode and select EYE-QTM by pushing up or down keys of
the control disc. Now select SETUP using the up or down keys, finally select
LEARN REFERENCE.
EYE-QTM will now project the Reference Source with horizontal green line inserted at the
top region and a horizontal green line inserted at the bottom region of the image.
Pushing the up or down keys of the control disc adjust the horizontal green line at
the top until it matches the top edge of the Reference Source perfectly, then press
<ENTER>.
Using the up or down keys of the control disc adjust the horizontal green line at the
bottom until it matches the bottom edge of the Reference Source perfectly, then
press <ENTER>.
Now EYE-Q TM projects the Reference Source with a vertical green line inserted at the
left and a vertical green line inserted at the right.
Pushing the up or down keys of the control disc changes the position of the vertical green lines simultaneously; they are being shifted symmetrically inward and
outward with respect to the scan of the projector.
Use left or right keys of the control disc to change the phase of the Reference Source.
Use both (up or down) or (left or right) so that the green vertical lines perfectly match
the right-left edges of the reference image, then press <ENTER> (this will initiate the
learning procedure).
NOTE: If you had to use the left and right arrow keys to adjust the phase, this means
that the phase of the Reference Source was originally not adjusted correctly. Hence the
Reference Source may now fall short of the physical screen. To avoid this, re-adjust the
Horizontal Raster Shift (in the Random Access Adjustment mode, refer to Owner Manual) so that the Reference source falls on the physical screen and repeat the Learn Reference selection.
Do not adjust the phase when repeating the Learn Reference procedure.
Pressing<EXIT> will interrupt the Learn Reference procedure if required.
WHAT IS BEING MEASURED BY EYE-QTM
Using the borderlines define above, EYE-QTM knows exactly when the image starts and
stops with respect to time scale. EYE-QTM is now able to project lines at the edges. Using
the border lines left and right, EYE-QTM projects three vertical thick green lines at positions 5, 50 and 95%. Using the border lines top and bottom, EYE-QTM projects three horizontal thick lines at positions 5, 50 and 95%. EYE-Q TM then calculates the intercepts of
the three vertical and three horizontal lines resulting in nine points. These nine points
are the reference points for other geometry sources and are stored into memory.
NOTE: “DELETE ALL BLOCKS” in the Service menu does not delete the Reference
source parameters.
APX-9
TOUCH UPAND AUTOCONVERGENCE
ADJUSTING SCREEN SIZE
In case the projection screen is not greater than the desired size or
the screen has a frame around it (i.e. projection impossible outside
the frame), the following blanking adjustments have to be done
before starting the automatic convergence:
When using a video source: adjust the top, bottom, left and
right blanking until the whole projected image of video is just
still visible;
When using a screen with a frame: adjust the top, bottom,
left and right blanking until the whole projected image is just
still visible.
So that the selected screen area after blanking adjustments corresponds with the projected image size.
In this way, the screen size is set correctly to ensure the successful
convergence.
NOTE:
For blanking adjustments, please refer to the Projector Setup Manual.
To enter the AUTOCONVERGENCE menu:
Highlight AUTOCONVERGENCE by pushing up or down
keys of the control disc;
Press the <ENTER> button.
The AUTOCONVERGENCE menu allows the automatic convergence either on the currently selected source or on all sources (all
filled memory blocks of the projector).
ON CURRENT SOURCE
the on current source includes three options, the first of which is
selectable in the iris menu:
Touch Up EYE-Q TM
Align
Align from midposition
APX-10

currently selected source will be carried out automatically. Follow
the steps below to select:
Highlight TOUCH-UPby pushing up or down keys of the control disc;
Press the <ENTER> button to start up the static convergence.
If the process is successfully completed, the projector will return to
image display of the current source.
ALIGN ON CURRENT SOURCE
When ALIGN is selected, the automatic convergence on the current
memory bank will be carried out automatically, starting from the
existing settings.
By projecting alternately red and blue line, 25 convergence areas
are aligned to the green pattern.
Follow the steps below to select:
Highlight ALIGN below ON CURRENT SOURCE by pushing up or down keys of the control disc;
Press the <ENTER> button to start up the automatic convergence of the entire screen.
If the process is successfully completed, the projector will return to
image display of the current source.
Use this option when the convergence is close to proper alignment.
ALIGN FROM MIDPOSITION ON CURRENT SOURCE
When ALIGN FROM MIDPOSITION is selected, the automatic
convergence on the current source will be carried out automatically, but starting from the mid-position settings.
By projecting alternately red and blue lines, 25 convergence areas
are aligned to the green pattern.
Follow the steps below to select:
Highlight ALIGN FROM MIDPOSITION by pushing up or
down keys of the control disc;
Press the <ENTER> button to start up the automatic convergence of the entire screen.
If the process is successfully completed, the projector will return to
image display of the current source.

By projecting alternately red and blue lines, 25 convergence areas
are aligned to the green pattern. The process will repeat for as
many times as the total number of the sources until all sources are
perfectly aligned.
Follow the steps below to select:
Highlight ALIGN below ON ALL SOURCES by pushing up or
down keys of the control disc;
Press the <ENTER> button to start up the automatic convergence
of the entire screen.
If the process is successfully completed, the projector will return to
image display of the current source.
Use this option when the convergence is close to proper alignment.

ALIGN FROM MIDPOSITION ON ALL SOURCES
When ALIGN FROM MIDPOSITION is selected, the automatic
convergence on all sources will be carried out automatically, but
starting from the midposition settings.
By projecting alternately red and blue lines, 25 convergence areas
are aligned to the green pattern. The process will repeat for as
many times as the total number of the sources until all sources are
perfectly aligned.
Follow the steps below to select:
Highlight ALIGN FROM MIDPOSITION below ON ALL
SOURCES by pushing up or down keys of the control disc;
Press the <ENTER> button to start up the automatic convergence of the entire screen.
If the process is successfully completed, the projector will return to
image display of the current source.
Use this option when the convergence if far from proper alignment.
INTERRUPTING THE AUTOMATIC CONVERGENCE
PROCESS
The process of the above-mentioned automatic convergence can be
interrupted at any moment by pressing the <EXIT> button.
After the <EXIT> button is pressed, the projector will leave the
automatic convergence process and a message will be displayed
informing of the action:
Status: Forced<EXIT>
ERROR MESSAGES
The status line in the AUTOCONVERGENCE menu gives three
possible messages:
Ready: before automatic convergence starts;
Forced<EXIT>: when interrupting the process;
Forced break: error message.
Error messages are displayed when the automatic convergence is
not successfully completed.
APX-13
NO PATTERN ERROR
After starting up the automatic convergence, the projector will start
to calculate and locate 5 horizontal and 5 vertical lines which are
used to divide the screen into 25 areas.
If the projector does not succeed in finding the pattern, it will try
two time. If the two attempts fail, the projector will quit the
process and display the Error menu.
The AUTOCONVERGENCE selection will be followed by the
error window displaying the following possibilities.
Error occurred, please check:
the lens cap is removed
the lens of the camera is correctly focused;
the camera is correctly centered;
if hardware problems exist, do diagnostics;
the ambient light is too high;
the blanking adjustments are correct;
Press the <ENTER> button to start EYE-QTM diagnostics
(refer to page for full details on EYE-QTM diagnostics, please
note that this option may vary in selection with different projectors).
STATUS REPORTING FORCED BREAK
After starting up the automatic convergence, if unexpected trouble
such as the interruption of source input occurs, the projector will
quit the process and display the AUTOCONVERGENCE menu on
the screen.
The status line in the AUTOCONVERGENCE menu will display
the following message:
Status: Forced break
The possible causes of such an error:
The source is disconnected during the convergence:
On the screen a message “Source not available” will be displayed and projector waits until the source is reconnected or
selected;
Switching sources during the convergence:
After the source is available again, the AUTOCONVERGENCE menu will be displayed the status line reporting
“Forced Break.”

EYE-QTM DIAGNOSTICS
This option allows a check-up of the EYE-QTM
NOTE: Most errors that occur during the LEARN REFERENCE
procedure or the beginning of the AUTOCONVERGENCE procedure are caused by one of the following:
Lens cap not removed
Lens focus not performed properly
Camera focus not performed properly
Ambient light is too high
Reference not learned properly
If all else fails, run the diagnostics.
