All I want is 9 lines per inch

All I want is 9 lines per inch

I cannot seem to get my HP9000dn to give me 9 lines per inch.  The two most relevant commands I've tried are:

Setting the line spacing to 9 lines per inch:
Ec&l9D        027 038 108 057 068
This is ignored by the printer (9 is invalid?).

Setting the vertical motion index to 5
Ec&l5C       027 038 108 053 067
This gives me more like 10 or 11 lines per inch, and setting it to 6 gives me about 8 lines per inch.

Is it possible to set the VMI to fractions such as 5.75??

Advice grately apprecitaed!

RE: All I want is 9 lines per inch

Set the VMI to 5.3333 and you should have 9 lpi


Four decimal points are supported AFAIK
