Obviously, brightness is the key for 3D. The new JVC projectors better get brighter.
By Iris do you mean "Lens Aperture"? I can't find the Iris setting in the menu... (RS46)

^^^ Can someone please answer this ? Also, what's the difference between Chief RPA281 and SLB281 ? Do I need to buy both or just any one of the two (but which one ?) .. ?

I plan to hang the projector vertically from the ceiling ..

You need both pieces, I came down with a 9" nipple and both pieces attach together..Definitely a 2 man job. I was dead center to my screen..Used a 1 1/2" flange lag bolted to ceiling joist. 100" screen about 14' away.. hope this helps

Okay, I thought the plate (SLB281) attached to the ceiling, and then the vertical pipe attached to that ..

How does the pipe attach to the ceiling then ?

Also, doesn't the plate come already included with RPA281 ? Example: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...tor_Mount.html

My mount came with both pieces, just make sure when you buy it. As I said in the post, I mounted a 1 1/2" flange to the ceiling joist with 2 lag bolts. I don't remember what size bolts I got, get the flange first then ask salesperson about what size: 3/4", 1/2" etc. I used 4" and you will only be able to catch 2. Put a level on pj after its done to make sure you are right on with leveling..I dont know how far down you have to go with pj, mine worked out at 9"..Hope this helps, enjoy your Projector!!

I also might suggest taking lots of pictures of your unit before sending it off. I don't know anything about JVC but Panasonic PHYSICALLY damaged my last projector...and didn't even fix it!
Got my projector back, they couldn't reproduce the problem, we tried using both internal and external sources. Fortunately( as they claimed), in the process of testing, the video board gone bad and was replaced! Got it back and had to re-calibrate anything! The problem still there. I am going to live with it. It definitely some kind of reflection from some way, which I could't figured it out. In dark scene, its fine. Watch it at about 45 degree, the lines disappeared! Thanks for any advice and suggestions!

Pretty sure this is the result of 99% of all devices sent in for repair from every company. Along with the line "We've never heard of that problem before"

Incompetence.
