I own a JVC X30 (RS 45). It's still sleeping on the floor as i'm not living at home now (can't wait to...). I still hesitate about what kind of DIY screen i should built : 2.35 or 1.77 ?
3D is for my 6 years old daughter... She will only watch anime like Disney, Pixar... So a lot of contents in 1.77 size. Some movies for children like "Karate Kid 2010" (she likes it very much
If i choose 1.77 screen size, it will be about 2,1 meters width.
2D is for me. I watch a lot of movies (so 2.35 most of the time) and some of your best series (Dexter, The walking dead, Vampire's diaries, and so...). I still don't know if i will play games (PS3, X360, PC) with the JVC (because of its lag).
2.35 should be fine for me and the screen size would be 2,4 meters width (bigger than the 1.77 one because if i build a 1.77 screen with 2,4 meters width, it will be too big for my wall (because of the eight of the screen).
If i choose the cinemascope size of screen, here comes the problem.
I've seen the lens memory of the JVC X30 working to my dealer's shop. It seemed to be great. But i've heard that some people had problem with the memory lens. It wasn't coming back to the right place after zooming for 2.35 contents...
So i have 2 simples questions :
- 1.77 or 2.35 ?
- those who use the lens memory, does it work fine ? Do you think it's a good idea to use it each time i want to watch a 2.35 movie (i ask because JVC seemed to have problems in a near past with the quality of its units (especially bulbs) ?
By the way, i don't know if this is important or not but i will use an HTPC to feed my JVC. So if i choose a 2.35 width screen, each time the movie will ended, i'll have to use the lens memory to go back to 1.77 width for Windows...
