Happy with ours

We have a JVC RS50 & we don't even have a dedicated theater. It is in our family room which we can darken for viewing. We had this professionally calibrated & we are extremely happy with its performance

Latest Gen Bulbs

Latest Gen Bulbs?
I've been replacing with the $100 Amazon bulbs.
I wouldn't mind paying more if I got more life out of the bulbs, but on high power I'm lucky to see close to 2000 hours.

What other options are there?

I inherited a jvc x7 with a new house. It has the solid red lights with flashing orange. I took the ballast out and there is no visible damage and the resistor was good. Put it back in and upgraded the firmware. Bought a new bulb but still no luck, just ordered a new ballast so we'll see if that works. If not, hoping to be able to return it. There was power coming from the power supply to the ballast. I'll report back when the new ballast is in. Does anyone know if anything would cause the blinking orange light?
