Has anyone thought of doing a JVC shoot out of all these projectors? JVC did a great shoot out in Europe which was well received. It seems like we should be able to get something together in the US. Maybe throw in the Sony to make it really interesting.

A quick cut and paste into babble fish and although hard to decipher it looks like they reviewed VIVITEK KH5080, JVC RS 15, JVC RS 25, and Sony VW 85. From what I could translate it seems that the JVC RS 25 was the winner because of the black levels in native contrast and the CMS capabilities. At least that is what I came away with - but I am not fluent in Italian and Babble Fish is far from perfect.

Thanks very much for the summary Richard!

Hi Kutlow. Are you back in Alabama enjoying your new machine? If you are in WV, give me a PM. I'd like to have you over my house and HT in Maryland. Spending a night no problem, lots of guest rooms and being on lake is real nice..

Hey Mark. No Im back in Alabama now. Had to make it a fast trip because my son (9) had to miss school. I had to go to my neurosurgeon for a follow up to surgery from my back operation. Have you had a chance to witness the Sony 85? I hear it's a good machine. The same invite if you ever come this way. If you ever travel to the Gulf Shores for the beach stop by for a pitstop and rest. Your more than invited. Just bring along all your calibration tools. It sucks being in an area that does not have other forum members nearby. I would love to come to a shoot out on av equiptment.

Who was it that reported using slight amount of lens shift actually improved contrast? I believed he even measured the improvement. Has anyobody experienced this?

Just installed a 990 yesterday, want to get some quick advice on setup prior to my ISF calibration. I am running it with a 120" Firehawk G3 (1.3 gain). Projector is 18 feet back from the screen. I'm running in THX mode for now. Room has some ambient light - totally unusable during the day but fairly dark at night.

I have the bulb set to High (instead of Normal) right now. Should I be running it Normal and open up the iris? Or keep it at High for max light output? What does running it in High do to contrast and depth?

I'm a total newbie to the projection space so I have ZERO experience with these things. Also, I couldn't find the iris setting, is this hidden somewhere in the menu structure?

Thanks for the help. Will post pictures as soon as I tweak it a bit...

I just installed an RS35 and when configuring the DirecTV resolution outputs, the projector will not accept the 1080p signal from the H24. It accepts all other resolutions; is this normal?
