the deductible isn't the bad part, its the increase in rates after the claim that stinks.

What kind of insurance is this? I thought it was an extended warranty type of insurance. Is this something your homeowners covers?

homeowners. a few years ago I had a lightning strike kill some components in my theater and the same week totaled my ford f-250 turbo diesel. They were good enough to cover both but I have been paying for it ever since.

They can't raise rates like that here in California, but they can "non-renew" you. I'm not sure what the guidelines are now, but I had it happen after 3 claims back in the 80's. They can't even tell you how many claims will lead to a non-renewal because that may discourage you from making the claim. Such discouragement is illegal.

After that I finally had to go to Lloyd's of London to get insurance for a year before the regular insurance companies would touch me again. I was in my 20's. What did I know?

Hello! I've been using this projector for over a year and it's been tremendous.
Now I want to use, for the first time, the 3D glasses and the emitter.
I set it all up when I got the machine.
How do I get the projector to project in 3D and connect with the glasses? Is there an instruction page/walk-through somewhere?
Thanks in advance!

I should add: JVC 3D RF Emitter, Part #PKEM2P
and
JVC PK-AG3 Glasses

Help? (To the moderators: if there's a better place to put these two posts, please feel free to move them!)

OK, continuing from the previous post. I'm testing the system, trying to get 3D to work.

I have the projector connected to the computer through a Denon AVR-2113CI. I've been using it that way successfully for a long while, no problems.

I have the glasses charged.

I'm using an LG internal blu-ray player in an external housing. It's also worked perfectly for everything up to this point.

The computer is running W7 ultimate. I'm using PowerDVD ver. 9.0.4322.52

When I start up a 3D blu-ray, I get this message: "Your blu-ray 3D player has not detected that it is connected to a 3D display" and suggests checking equipment setup. The 3D settings on the projector are set to automatic. There is no obvious way to FORCE the dvd to play 3D to test it.

Help?

I hate to bring this up, but has anyone seen a Magenta line on the edge of one of these 4810's? I saw a short line on my right edge last night during bright scenes. Hope it was my imagination as i lost an RS 20 to that.

No, I haven't seen anything like that. Was it a one time thing so far or is it still there?

Sorry to shake things up, i saw it a couple of times on bright scenes. Maybe i am paranoid after the experience with my RS-20.

Hey everyone, I have been searching around this thread and the Internet and just wanted to find out if Samsung 5150GB glasses would work with the 4810 RF 3D modual? I know the Samsung 5100 works but I have some 5150s and can't seem to get them to work.

Hopefully some one knows

Thanks guys

Ok, I got the 4810 back from Mendronix after they replaced I don't know what.

Is it possible that the new electronics have improved the contrast?

I installed a new bulb (the old one may have had close to 2000 hrs, not sure). It seemed to have better contrast before I installed the new bulb however.

Or did I just miss the on/off contrast of the JVC since I've been watching my old Samsung SP-A800B DLP in the meantime?

Did the new brighter bulb make you dial the iris down a bit to match what you may have liked when using the 2000 hour bulb? That would increase contrast.

Actually, I read somewhere that opening the iris increases contrast. So, while I watched the old bulb with -13 aperture I am now watching it at 0 - wide open.
I think I will try dialing down the iris and see what that does.

I don't know where you read that. The opposite is true. Yes... you will notice good things as you dial the iris down.

well I tried dialing down the iris and to me it seems to just make everything darker. I always ran it with the iris clamped way down and never felt like it had anywhere near the contrast that my plasma has.

I feel that running it with the iris wide open,making the brighter areas of the screen quite a bit brighter, increases the contrast between light and dark on the screen. This is probably why I feel it is a lot more contrasty than it was before.

I really way prefer the brighter picture. My screen is too big . It is 10 feet wide 2.35 CenterStage XD. I have always preferred to shrink the image down to around 8 to 8 1/2 feet wide but my wife complains and prefers a larger image.

Yeah... I've got a 10' wide 16:9 SMX. My RS-500 is on order!

Well... I deserve it! I let 7 generations of projectors go by (I think). I'm still watching my RS20! It's developed that dreaded magenta stripe, so it's gotta go.

But I tell you, with CalMAN and an eeColor LUT box it is still very nice... if you ignore that stripe.

True, closing the iris will increase your contrast while reducing your light output.
I have about 1250 hours on my RS4810 with the original lamp (in low lamp mode). I have the iris all the way open. On my last cal by Chad B about 200 hours ago, I was at 11.8 ftL. My throw and zoom is maxed out. My screen is a 9 foot wide Stewart ST100 (2:35). With 16x9 content, I zoom down and close the iris to -5 to get the same light output. I'm sure the contrast ratio measures a bit better, but I really don't notice a difference between the two settings. I only prefer around 12 ftL or so - and could go less - but my room is painted/carpeted black and my eyes get strained with anything too much brighter with scope movies in particular. I sit almost 11 feet back from the screen. I was about to jump ship to the RS500, but decided to stay put for now. The 4810 really puts out a great image.

Yup... we've got some movies that look really gorgeous on the RS20. It's amazing what having a really nice gamma and color do for a picture. I can hardly wait for the 500! Re-watch for sure!

Hello All,


Can someone help me with general calibration settings. I am aware each set is different but I found such settings for my Panny ZT65 and it really improved.


I would appreciate it. Thank you
