SF9 cell transfection using lipofectamine??

Has anybody expressed successfully a gen (GFP or other) directed by the CMV promoter in SF9 (or other insect cell line) using a virus or a plasmid as a vector?

I found only one paper where they infect with a virus expressing a GFP directed by CMV promoter, and they say fluorescence is weak but itís there so CMVp is a little bit active. But they donít show negative control, and I see a black background in the positive control (GFP directed by a insect cell promoter), and I see a very green background in the CMV-GFP transfection, what make me think may be what they see is just endogen fluorescence.
Hope is not too late.
We used to tansfect S2 or insect cells with plasmid under Actin- or inducible-promoter(for example metallotheonein) control.
