Jo-Ann Fabrics sells black velvet, and they have a black cloth called 'Home Essentials' that I think I used. I also found that Ikea makes some great black curtains that are cheap, called 'Ritva'. I used these with their 'Dignitet' hanging wire to rig up a kind of black tent around my screen.

Found this on Jo-Ann Fabrics. Look familiar?

Here is some velvet fabric as well. Red may look really classy around the screen.

This is the dignitet wire you were talking about.

Can I ask some questions?

That dignitet wire seems to run 16 feet, which is great. Can I use that to run atop a 16 foot wall and then simply hang flat black fabric from one end to the other? This will take care of the side walls.

Around the screen I would run the same dignitet for black fabric behind the screen wall. However, I would like to hang red velvet drapes on either side of the screen. Would I use another dignitet for that, simply attaching the velvet to the wire?

Anyone here using CalMan can answer this? Search has turned up nothing.

Is the LAN connection supported for AutoCal or not?

The fabric from Jo-Ann's might be correct, but to be honest, I don't remember what it was called, and wouldn't know again unless I actually touched it. If you're going to Ikea for the Dignitet wire, you should probably pick up the black curtains from them as well.

Ready made curtains are made flat, with strings that you pull to make them sort of bunch up. I didn't pull the strings, and actually cut off the header tape altogether. I folded over the edges, and ironed about 3/4" hem, bonded with heat bonding tape. It's held together well for around 2 years now, and it's much cheaper than paying someone to sew a hem, or buying a sewing machine to do it yourself.

The Dignitet wire is desgined, I believe, to be used with the Riktig curtain hooks and clips. If you've kept the header tape, you'd use the hooks I think. If you've hemmed the edge like I did, you'd use the clips.

I ordered the additional corner bracket for the Dignitet wires, so the edges of my curtains go around the screen wall up to the screen as well, but I suppose you could use a third wire for that wall.

The wall covering behind the screen won't have much affect on the image on the screen, but a darker material will improve the perception of black. If the black you're achieving for other reasons isn't great, it could be argued that a lighter screen wall is better!

I didn't use velvet for the walls and ceiling, because it's just too heavy to hang really. It's also expensive in large sizes! Velvet might be better still, but like I said, when you start treating the room, small changes have a big impact. The difference between velvet and cheaper, lighter, black cloth will be quite small; the difference between any black cloth and no cloth at all will be huge.

If you're following all of this, you'll be re-creating almost exactly what I have in my living room. I found my post that I was looking for that has images:Official JVC DLA-RS46 / DLA-X35 owners thread. I have since improved on this slightly, by adding a sort of 'hood', which I made from the Jo-Ann's cloth. This covers the area above the screen up to the curtain wire, and out from the screen by about 2'. This did improve things again, even though my ceiling is very high, those first reflections off the screen are what really needs absorbing.

That's enough typing on the forums for today... I'm off to watch a 3D Blu-ray. It's going to be either Boxtrolls, Sin City 2, or Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Nezil,

Thank you so much for the tips, and through the photos, inspiring me to try to do this myself.

Where do you all suggest placing the darbee right before the projector or Avr?

Also around what settings worked best for you

Gaming lag?

Any PS4 owners on here that could comment on whether there is noticeable lag with games on the X35?

(apologies if this was covered earlier in the thread)

There is lag of course. I only really noticed it in fps games to be honest. So if your a die hard cod fan and get mad when you get killed a projector might not be for you

a JVC projector might not be for him. but I think the benq w1070 is under 20ms of lag, which kicks the butt of 90% of the flat panels on the market today


x35 is right around 80ms iirc, which is right at that point of being noticeable, and troublesome for 'twitch' games. I actually don't even notice it with FPS, but I'm that guy with the 1/10 K/D ratio at the best of times, so I generally don't even bother with online gaming. the campaign against the computer works just fine for me.

Thanks. I don't do online FP games, and am not a harcore gamer in that regard. Just hoping it wouldn't be annoying with the 80ms lag on general single player games.

i would agree with this. certain games were rough on the eyes. the size along with the relatively poor motion made some stuff tough to handle

I am a near-hardcore racing gamer, and my experience with F1 racing (PS4) was good … not enough lag to detract from the enjoyment on such a massive screen. Hard-core FPS players probably wouldn't like it.

I've been playing Destiny on mine and a 115" screen since Sept. If there is a lag. I dont notice it. In fact when I play it on a regular display I don't notice a difference. So either I really stink or there isn't really one on the projector.

I have mine in between the Preamp and Projector so all sources are processed. On some of the poorer sources I can sometimes see what I think are artifacts from the Darbee, but it's very infrequent. So in my opinion having the Darbee apply to all sources is the best route.

if you play a kinect game you'd probably notice it.

there's not enough lag to bug me with most games, cause i guess in the big scheme of things, 80ms isn't THAT bad and we can adjust to it pretty easily. but add in the lag caused by the kinect system and the extra 80ms of the projector makes it almost unplayable. i'm guessing there's probably like 100-120ms of lag from the kinect itself, it's sluggish enough you need to 'predict' when to perform your actions. with the x35, most things weren't really possible to predict far enough in advance.

anyway, there's definitely lag, it detectable if you look for it. but as others have said, it's not so much you can't adapt for most games. i imagine some fighting games where you only have a couple frames to counter would be frustrating to play, but otherwise it's ok.

it's funny, cause when i bought my f8500(plasma) it's actually go about 120ms of lag, so it was actually an improvement getting the x35 with 'only' 80ms, haha. i do find the f8500 to be 'annoying' if not in game or pc mode(which brings it down around 60ms)
