ANALOG INPUTS:
• Composite Video Input
Composite video is the most common type of signal used, but is also the lowest in
picture quality. Many sources have outputs that are limited to composite video, such
as some VCR’s and camcorders; others such as Laser Disc players actually produce
slightly better results when using composite video.
• S-Video Input
S-video is a better type of signal that can be used, but is MUCH better than composite
video. Using such sources as Satellite receivers, high-quality VCRs and DVD players
(with no component output) will produce a MUCH cleaner and sharper signal.
• Component Input
Component video is the best analog signal that can be used. The most common
sources that use component outputs are DVD players, and it is highly recommended
that component be used when possible. Component video goes one step beyond
S-video in picture quality; chroma (color) information is more resolved and the overall
picture appears more well-defined. (This Component input is for SDTV (480i/576i)
signals only)
• HD1 / HD2
These are High Definition Analog inputs to connect the outputs of high definition
sources such as HD tuners and set top boxes, HD satellite receivers, etc. These inputs
will accept and automatically detect signals as RGB, RGBHV or Component Video
(YPrPb).
DIGITAL INPUTS:
• DVI 1 / DVI 2
These are High Definition Digital inputs. Runco recommends using these digital inputs
whenever possible. Using the DVI 1 and DVI 2 inputs ensures the highest video quality
because the signal is carried in the digital domain throughout the entire signal path,
from the source, through the DHD and finally into the projector. This maintains maximum
signal purity.
Use these inputs to connect Digital High Definition sources that have a DVI output,
such as HD tuners and set top boxes, satellite receivers, DVD players, etc. You may also
connect computers with a DVI output as well, but accepted VESA standard resolutions
are limited to VGA, SVGA, XGA and SXGA at 60Hz refresh.

DHD Controller
DHD Controller Description
ISF CALIBRATION:
The DHD system has been designed to incorporate setup and calibration standards
established by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). The ISF has developed carefully
crafted, industry-recognized standards for optimal video performance and has implemented
a training program for technicians and installers to use these standards to obtain optimal
picture quality from Runco video display devices. Accordingly, Runco recommends that
setup and calibration be performed by an ISF certified installation technician.
The ISF Calibration section of the DHD Controller is reserved for Certified ISF Technicians
only. Please contact Runco Technical Support for information on ISF Calibration.
16
Overall Functional Description
The DHD system consists of the VX-40d, VX-50d, VX-60d, VX-80d projectors
and DHD Controller. This system is unique in the way it is controlled; the
control center for this system is located within the DHD Controller. The DHD
Controller tells the Projector to turn on or off, controls its brightness, contrast,
color temperature and more. All of this is accomplished by Runco's unique
ComLink, which is the transfer of information between the DHD Controller and
the Projector via their ComLink ports using a CAT5 cable (or similar). Therefore,
only the DHD Controller's remote control is necessary to control all aspects of
this system; though advanced calibration can be performed at the projector
during initial installation (refer to the projector’s manual for details).
Besides being the system's control center, the DHD Controller is also a highquality scaler, which outputs all signals in the native resolution of the VX
Projector. The Composite, S-Video and Standard Definition Component signals
are sent through the DHD Controller's 10-bit decoder, de-interlaced, then scaled
to the native resolution of the Projector. In the case of HDTV or progressive DVD
signals, these are input to the RGB/Component port and bypass the DHD’s deinterlacing circuitry.
In the next chapter, the menu system will be described in detail. There are many
adjustments available to perfect the DHD's image, including typical 'front-panel
controls' as well as color temperature and other image-quality controls.

down arrow buttons and press ENTER. Once the function is on-screen (i.e. brightness),
pressing the UP arrow button on the remote or front panel will increase the value of that
function; pressing the DOWN arrow on the remote or front panel will decrease the value
of that function.
NOTE: A BLUE FILTER must be used so only the blue color bars can be seen on a
standard color bar test pattern. Blue filters are provided with the Video Essentials or
AVIA test DVDs.
While each of the picture quality adjustments can be set to suit the needs of the user,
there is a 'proper' way to set the adjustments. For setting TINT and COLOR, please
refer to the color bar test pattern below.
Tint
Tint (also known as 'hue') is essentially the ratio of red to green in the color
portion of the image. If TINT is decreased, the image will appear redder, and
increasing it will cause the image to appear greener. To set TINT properly, look
at the color bar pattern through a blue filter (or mute the red and green outputs).
Adjust TINT until the middle two tall color bars match the middle short color bars
(see color bar drawing).

Color
Color (also known as 'saturation') increases or decreases the amount of color in the
image. To set COLOR properly, look at the color bar pattern through a blue filter (or mute
the red and green outputs). Adjust COLOR until the outer two tall color bars match the
outer short color bars (see color bar drawing).

Contrast
Brightness
Brightness adjusts the black level of the image. To adjust this properly, adjust Brightness
until the 'below black' bar just disappears, but the 'above black' bar is still barely visible.
NOTE: Some DVD players cannot pass the 'blacker than black' bar (they won't pass
PLUGE), and that bar will never be visible. In a case like this, adjust the 'above black' bar
until it is slightly brighter than the background that surrounds it.
Contrast
Contrast adjusts the white level of the image. For Fixed-pixel displays, adjust contrast until
there is a distinct definition between the two brightest bars.
NOTE: For best results, Runco recommends that CONTRAST be set to '0' or very close
to it. (see below)
For setting BRIGHTNESS use the pluge pattern below.
For setting Contrast, use the 10 step gray scale
below.
Ensure there is good distinction
between the two brightest bars.

Sharpness
Sharpness adjusts the amount of high-frequency detail in the image. This can be adjusted
to the preference of the user. Keep in mind that when SHARPNESS is decreased, fine
details in the image will become 'soft'; when it is increased, fine details will become
sharper but will also make the picture appear 'noisy' if adjusted too high.
Sharpness
All the picture adjustments (contrast, brightness, color, tint and sharpness) must
be saved manually to Custom 1 or Custom 2 under ISF presets menu. If not, all
the picture adjustments will be whited out when ISF presets (ISF Night, ISF Day,
Custom 1, Custom 2) are changed.
* ISF presets can only be changed by certified ISF technicians.

Troubleshooting
The following is a basic troubleshooting guide that can assist you in resolving typical
problems may result in normal operation. If you have encountered problems that are not
listed in this guide, please contact your Runco dealer for assistance.
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
SOLUTION
The Projector does
not turn on after initial
installation. The Power
LED on the front of the
Controller stays red after
the power button is
pressed.
· The RJ-11 (ComLink)
cable is not connected
between the Controller and
Projector, or is connected
improperly.
· The projector is not
plugged in, or its AC outlet
is not active. Look at its
power LED and see if it is
illuminated.
· Incorrect type phone
cord
· Use a standard RJ-11
phone-type cord. Ensure
it is firmly plugged into
both the Controller and the
Projector.
· Ensure there is good
continuity in the RJ-11
cable.
· Verify that the AC outlet
is active, or that the
Projector is plugged in.
The Projector and
Controller are both on, but
there is no video image
on-screen.
· The Controller is on the
wrong source.
· The Controller is on the
correct source, but the
source itself is off.
· Press MENU on the
Projector's remote, and
look to see which source
is active (the arrow will
be pointing to the active
source). Select the correct
source as appropriate.
· Turn on the source. It
is recommended that all
sources be turned on first
BEFORE the DHD.
The Projector is producing
a 'split screen' or an
otherwise scrambled
image.
· A progressive scan
DVD is plugged into
Component input rather
than the RGB/Component
input.
· Only NTSC/PAL can be
input to the Component
input. Progressive scan
must go into RGB/
Component.
The image appears too
bright, and there is a loss
of definition in the brightest
areas of the image.
· Contrast is set too high.
· The DVD player is set for
a high-level output.
· The video signal has not
been terminated properly
somewhere in the system.
· Turn down the
CONTRAST level on the
Controller. Mid-range is 0;
· Set the DVD player for a
nominal output (no boost
or gain).
· Ensure all video signals
are terminated in 75
Ohms.
22
Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
SOLUTION
The image appears too
'washed out', or the
darkest areas of the image
appear too bright.
· Brightness is set too
high.
· The DVD player may
be set for too high of a
brightness level.
· Turn down the
BRIGHTNESS level on
the Controller. If possible,
use a PLUGE pattern to
set the brightness level
properly.
· Set the DVD player for a
nominal output (no boost
or gain).
The colors of the image
appear abnormal
· The Red, Green and/
or Blue outputs of the
Controller or inputs to the
Projector are reversed.
· The Pr and Pb inputs on
the Component input on
the Controller are reversed
· Check the cable
connections on the back
of the Controller or on the
Projector.
The Projector will not
turn back on after it was
powered-down, or the
image disappears during
operation.
· The Projector will not
turn on for two minutes
after power-down to
protect its bulb.
· The bulb has failed
· Wait two minutes until
the LED on the front of the
Controller turns red.
· Check the error code
in the projector’s back
panel LCD display (see
projector’s manual).
