I hear you on the cold snap! We are in Quebec skiing and it's -54 below on the mountain. Not a lot of skiing going on, actually.
I had a window of time through December in which I was going to be able to set up my new JVC projector, learn calibration software, learn my new Lumagen, remote programming etc, but with the many delays on the JVC, and now with the HDMI problems, that window is closing fast. Now I really don't know when the projector will arrive, or when I'll be able to actually use and watch it.
Speaking of HDMI problems, since it's been occurring across all this years models it's tough to coordinate user reports, since users are split among the various models threads.
I'd think it would be good to have a separate thread just devoted to it, to discuss what seems to cause it and any fixes people have tried, all in one thread.
I'm even wondering if anyone with a 2014 model has NOT experienced any new HDMI problems, and if so what is their set up?
I'd start the thread myself but others, like Krichter, have spent lots of time trouble shooting the problem and could better express the issues.
