The latest firmware has been out for a long time now. The 4910's get an extra QC check when they arrive in the US at the distributor so it would shock me if they didn't arrive at AVScience's warehouse with the latest firmware ready to go. If memory serves me correctly, AVScience also tests each individual projector to make sure it passes their own QC before it gets sent out to the customer.

Also, was the first batch post-CEDIA up to date with FW off the truck, or did you guys have to update each one yourselves?
Projectors just came in. We have enough in stock to fill all orders and then some. Do you have one ordered? They do have latest firmware.

We only test the B-stock projectors. The A-stock is factory sealed. We only open A-stock if a new firmware comes out and the customers wants us to update projector before shipping.

Thanks Mike.

How many feet back will be the projector be/throw distance for me in this type of setup?
I also thought that I have a flexible "range" of distance for the JVC 4910 projector distance/throw distance, correct?

150" diagonal 2.35 is 138" wide. Minimum throw (governed by the fabric) using Ultramatte 150 is 17'-3" Maximum throw, when using lens memory is governed by the 58.75" heigh of the screen, 24'-9". So the range for you is 17'-3" to 24'-9".

I sent my 4910 in for repair due to bad optic block. JVC contacted me and said avscience would be sending me a new one. That was awhile ago. He said they were on backorder though. Any of you guys over at avscience know if my projector will be shipping soon out of the new bunch you just got in?

Mike - are you using the calculator on JVC's website for these? I'm thinking of doing a CIW setup with a 120" wide screen (138" diag 16x9, 130" scope). If I use that calc, looks like I have a range of 13-21 feet. To get the best brightness, I should keep it closer to the 13' range, correct?

Any chance of some of you X500 owners that have had your projectors calibrated posting some pictures please.

Many thanks.

The closer the projector is towards the screen within your throw range, the brighter the picture.

Great. Yeah, I ordered a couple weeks back.
Since I'm just down the thruway from Rochester, Should I be expecting it by the end of the week?
----------
Yikes! Just got the invoice and tracking #. It should be here tomorrow.

Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size of Redmere cable. I thought I could get by with 15' but it looks like I have to order way more than I need since they don't carry 20' or 25'.
I ordered this kind

http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_i...seq=1&format=2

Hope that's the right one.

Till these show up, I should be able to get by with my old HDMI cable, shouldn't I?

Whats peoples take on getting one og these this year with 4k lurking?

Guess I need some advice. Upgrade my infocus sp8602?, which aside from black level, I am pretty happy with.

I can get it at a decent price but will i be looking at upgrading already next year ?

Pretty tempted right now maybe someone has been in this situation this year?
