Does someone here know what the original partnumber is of the bulb that goes in the X30/RS-45?

So not the PK-L2210UP housing number, but the number on the UHP-220W bulb? It's probably from Eye Iwasaki Japan.

FI doesn't really completely fix motion blur anyhow (especially since some is inherent to a 24p source), it just fools your eyes to some degree with extra frames, but it cannot fully fix it like a DLP with FI can. I dislike FI in movies anyways, Sony or no Sony. FI's main advantage is 3D viewing or Sports.

I have done some really extensive testing with SVP frame last few months on my RS45. I finally have found settings that result in 1080p59,94 extremely good. (23,976 to screen refresh rate 59,94). Throw in the FI mode 3 on the JVC and the result is absolutely stunning. Only thing is you need a really heavy HTPC (min. i7 2600K oc-ed+GTX470)

Correct, kenwood isn't an iPad spellcheck dictionary word apparently. The firmware update instructions and the software that loads it are found at the link below. I followed their instructions exactly, and everything worked as described. Be patient a couple of the steps take some time as I recall. Whatever you do don't interrupt it or allow the pc or laptop you are using to do it go to sleep during the process. I had that happen on a receiver of mine a while back and it made for a trip back to the factory to fix it.

This version of X30 / RS45 firmware has been out for a while and I haven't heard of or experienced any bugs with it.

Before jumping into upgrading my RS45 firmware, I'm wondering if any of you know....
1. Does updating the firmware reset all memories and presets? (i.e. will I need to recalibrate my projector and reset my lens memory settings?)
2. Is there a comprehensive list of all the firmware updates and what the updates attempt to do?
3. Are the Updates cumulative (i.e. does each update incorporate the changes made in previous updates)?

And on an unrelated topic, I've noticed a significant brightness drop now that I've got over 400 hours on my bulb. However I haven't measured the output. Will JVC replace the bulb without measurements?

Thanks as always

Good Viewing,
John G

The firmware upgrade didn't over write any settings, but if you have the tools I would re calibrate to confirm everything is in order.

This all jvc published on the latest update.

This update addresses remaining picture mode display on screen when pushing the picture mode button of the remote controller, Projector inoperative under certain conditions, message for fine adjustment when calling Lens memory.

Quick one regarding bright rooms.
I can mask the sides of the room with black curtains, kind of building a room within the livingroom, but the ceiling is white and the floor is dark brown.

Is the X30 bright enough in this kind of setting (mainly 2d)?
I use a matte white 1.0 screen.

Strongly advise painting (if possible) or tacking black velvet onto the ceiling to darken it. Your floor sounds dark enough, you can always use a black area rug however.

I just got my X30 and love it but not crazy about the ceiling mount I got. Anyone have any suggestions for a real solid mount for this baby? I am looking to be somewhat flush to the ceiling...

This is the mount I used. The included 5mm screws are just a little too short to thread into the projector as the threads are recessed. I found some longer ones in leftover parts from an old tv wall mount. HomeDepot would have these screws too.

I got the Chief mount from AVS. It is rock solid and doesn't hang down too far. Of course, it is pricey though compared to some others out there.

Mike,

The seats are a theater construction deterrent. So comfortable sitting in them you don't want to get up and get work done!

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Looks like the Chief RPA is the one. the online pics don't show but I assume this can be mounted flush to the ceiling without any type of extension?

Yes it can, but it is a little harder to adjust that way.

True but heed the adjustment advice. I installed my Chief RPM with a 6" pipe. That made a world of difference.

Is it a Chief pipe or threaded pipe from a local hardware store? If local, what is the pipe material and diameter?

I'm not sure what length I need so I was thinking the Chief adjustable pipes but they are a bit overpriced

I used a threaded pipe from the local hardware store. A lot cheaper, but of course not powder coated to match the mount.

Actually, I think it was a Peerless pipe and flange plate but that's irrelevant. The pipe is usually just ordinary iron pipe from Home Depot. I'm unsure of the diameter but you can get that info in the Chief manual.

I don't care for the adjustable pipes. We've never used them but I've had my hands on them and I just don't think they look clean or sturdy.

I painted the pipe and flange with my ceiling paint (mouse ears) so they would match perfectly.

It's schedule 40 1.5" pipe. The problem with HD is that they sell the full length stick (5' I think) and they cut it but you are stuck with a lot of waste and it makes your 6" expensive. Unless they changed their policy in the last 2 years... Local hardware store/plumbing store might be a cheaper option.

I bought a can of white primer metal paint and followed with 2 coats of the same paint I used for my walls with a brush. I loved the look so much I did the same to the ceiling plate. In my setup, it looks so much better then black.

GO HABS GO!

I found many lengths at a local Menards store. Not sure if there is one where you live, but no cutting, and no waste.

I have a question for the guys that watch/use the lens memory...

I have memory 1 set to a 2.35:1 ratio and lens memory 2 set at the 16:9 ratio.
when a movie is in 16:9 format, it becomes ALOT brighter the picture.
Would it make sense to have a USER 2 setting where you bring the brightness down?
I'm thinking of doing this because it's just too bright compared to the 2.35:1 ratio.

Does this make any sense?
What do you guys do?

Thanks

I assume you are using the zoom method for 2.35:1 ratio, and you have a 2.35:1 screen..is this correct?
Also, when you say bring the brightness down, I assume you mean turning the aperture down, but not the "brightness" setting, correct?
yes, your area is about 58% smaller (2.35*1.32/1*1.78), so you would notice a doubling of ftL, which should be quite noticeable. So, if you find it too bright, I think it makes sense. Another alternative is just to change it to "LOW " lamp when you are doing 16:9, and change to HIGH lamp when doing 2.35.
