Well I think they will do better with the RS232 and remote implementation. Just like the RS2X, they have added RS232 and IR for the direct V-Stretch. The bummer is that it can't be applied to the original RS1 projectors. I think with some of the griping that has gone on here, there is a better chance for a better implementation.
I could totally be wrong too. I have noticed that JVC always seems to be lagging in the software side of their machines. Sony is much better in that regard. On the other hand, Sony isn't pulling off a 30,000:1 native CR either.
