Add projector model to Epson ESC/VP21 driver
#1
Would it be possible to add a new model to the Epson ESC/VP21 driver? The "Other" mostly works, but it does not have the ability to set the color mode to Dynamic (they remapped the code from previous models)

The new (or few year old :-) ) model is the Cinema6100/6500UB
The valid color modes are:
Code:
Dynamic -- 06
Living Room -- 0C
Natural -- 07
Theatre -- 05
Theatre Black 1 -- 09
Theatre Black 2 -- 0A
x.v. Color -- 0B

The valid aspect ratios:
Code:
Normal -- 00
Zoom -- 50
Wide -- 70
Full -- 40

The valid Source Inputs:
Code:
Component-4RCA -- 10
Component-YCbCr -- 14
Component-YPbPr -- 15
Component(cycle?) -- 1F
PC -- 20
PC-RGB -- 21
HDMI -- 30
HDMI2 -- A0
Video -- 40
Video-Video -- 41
Video-SVideo -- 42

I'd be willing to give it a go if I had access to the driver source (Im not sure what the protocol for that is...)

Thanks

You do have access to all shipped drivers, except for a small set that are written by us in C++. The vast majority are in CML or PDL, and are shipped as source which is compiled on the fly.

Looking at the code, this is the same profile as the TW5000 no changes should be needed.

Maybe the manifest can be updated to reflect this. Either add the VP21 as a new projector in the list that uses the sameas the 5000 or append it to the 5000 in the list.

A good chance for the OP to get some familiarity with manifest files and loading drivers. Rev it up as a minor rev and submit it to Dean for inclusion in the next release.

Agreed -- gonna take a peek at it this week.

It will probably require some code changes as well in the initialize section to cover the new/changed value of the enum.

It looks like my issue was that the driver included with CQC is not the same as the one located on the forums (http://www.charmedquark.com/vb_forum/sho...hp?t=4942). The latter has support for more projectors and I confirmed that the TW5000 setting does work with my 6010 projector.

Is there any reason that isnt part of the normal distribution?

Thanks

It probably was modified since the last official release and no one had pushed it to my attention that new stuff was available. It could in theory be gotten into 4.2 still I guess.
