Part Number: DLP4500
I am using my LightCrafter 4500 with an external single color light source, and need to put the unit into some kind of monochrome mode. I am playing video back from the unit that is several seconds long, and do not think that I would be able to put frames in the flash memory for that reason. Is there some way I can change the unit to be "monochrome" so that I do not get the distortion of the RGB channels on my output?

In reply to Sanjeev:
The video is sent over HDMI, and the video is monochrome yes. If I am in pattern sequence mode I can still send my video over HDMI, yes? I will review the LightCrafter user guide again but it did not seem clear to me in answering this question.
In reply to Will Anthony:
I have checked that the video resolution is appropriate, and I have connected to the Trigger 1 output on the DLP4500 EVM board. At the same settings that I have set above, I am seeing the output trigger go low (3V3 to 0V) every 16.5ms approximately from just looking at the trace on an oscilloscope. This would be the near-60Hz frame sync I imagine. However, adjusting the exposure time and the number of bitplanes doesn't appear to change any output triggering. In trying to run the device in monochrome mode I can't seem to adjust how fast the frames are displayed. In section 3.3.1 of the documentation (DLPU011F) page it says that trigger 1 frames the exposure time of the pattern, but when I have changed the exposure time this trigger output does not appear to change.
Thank you for your help
