Question about improving sports watching via DirecTV.

My greatest frustration with watching sporting events on my JVC46 is simply the inconsistent and generally poor VQ of the image.. Especially full field shots which, depending on the channel and how much bandwidth DTV has afforded said channel, can really get pixelated. Now, when the shot goes to a close up of players or action it can look pretty great.

So, I am wondering if in this group there are any suggestions on alternate settings for the projector - away from my calibrated setup for general BluRay use - that could help improve watching sports on my big screen.

thanks in advance.

I don't believe a display can fix a bad source.

No need to apologize. I think you're right. I just wondered if others had found small tweaks that worked for this type of content that would not be appropriate otherwise.

Sadly, there is not much anyone can do about the quality of the source. OTA, cable, "Uverse" are all equally poor or worse than DTV.

thanks!

the only thing I could even think of to try is to mess with the sharpness or even focus on the projector. maybe you can hide the pixilation a bit, and with a slight degradation of the 'good' quality image, it may not be as jarring when it flips between the two.


I'm pretty sure it's just that the jvc is revealing the issues with the source though. between the quality of image and size of image, minor flaws will become easily visible

agreed. I never anticipated that I could "fix it", but wondered if anyone else had noticed this and possibly had found a combination of setting changes that could improve it.

thanks again.

Unhappy JVC lamp: Generation 3? Was I cheated?

Hi guys, I have a 2012 JVC X30BU. If this is the wrong forum please let me know. Some Problems since day one purchase 1-12 (unit would "freeze" upon startup displaying odd pattern of colored lines had to unplug and reboot) and was sent back to repair last time 9-12. Repair sheet says they replaced the optical block part #pc0210406u9 and the ballast pwb pc0106501u9. Ok, fast forward to 7-10-14. Lamp PK-L2210U has burned out at 1258 hours. I read about the so called "cooling fin" addition to the "gen 3" bulbs. So I order a new one direct from JVC. An insane $500. I have 4 questions:

See photo: new lamp left, old lamp right.

1) when was this "gen 3" lamp released?

2) Does the "optical block" include a lamp?

3). Should they have given me a new lamp?

4) software version 25.051. I tried updating the firmware early on but found it nearly impossible, I had to use a PC and I could never get the firmware to update correctly. Options on how important this is.

There is a separate thread for the JVC X30. This thread is for the 2013 models which have a different lamp so you won't get much help here.

Unfortunately, garbage in equals garbage out. The new OPPO 103 & 103D allow you input an HDMI source and "clean" it up some. You may also want to play around with your output settings of the receiver box. The best would be to find a "native" resolution so the satellite receiver is not doing the scaling. Usually, the built in ones are not as capable as the projector or even the one that may be in your surround receiver.

I'm in the process of rethinking my home theater set up for a new house. If I went with a 160" curved cinema scope screen, would I need one of those ridiculously expensive lenses? Or can the projector do it natively?
