Are you sure it isn't a problem with the source itself? Could be a compression problem with your cable. Are you doing any frame rate conversion??

With cable TV - even " HDTV " - all bets are off. Some things look good, some not so good, some look bad.

I posted this on the JVC 4910 site but am also doing so here because of AV Science.

I want to take time to thank Mike Garrett of AV Science for the consideration of my needs in purchasing my first projector: the JVC DLA-RS57U.

Mike has shown kindess and concern to me ever since I first contacted him for a possible purchase.

Mike has gone out of his way to involve himself in other aspects of my first home theater setup that have greatly aided me. I just want to thank him publicly for his great help and involvement.

Thank you Mike!

Hey Guys, i know its been a few months since most of you have had your projectors, alot of you seem to be real advanced at configuring your units, i've been slowly waiting for the newest version of calman5 to support these units with there autocal feature, i spoke to them again today and there still working on it seems when i call every 2 weeks there always 2 weeks out.. i had mentioned to them that i was using a Lumagen mini3D unit in conjunction with my projector and the guy on the phone had said i would be better off calibrating the Lumagen for the JVC, he said i would probably get a better end result vs even when there software is ready and has the autocal feature for the JVC, does anyone here use a lumagen with there JVC projector and have preformed a calibration on there unit? if so just wondering where to start what base settings and picture modes i should be using on the JVC to get the best end result...

Thanks

Calibration

So i finally got around to calibrating my JVC x700 with some help... One of the industry pros, Michael Chen from http://www.tlvexp.ca/ came over to my place and gave me some training on calman5, he spent over 8 hours with me in 2 days giving me the whole rundown on the history of TV,Color space, terminology and why we calibrate... the first day was great got a better understanding of REC 709, Gamma, contrast, brightness, etc and how everything fits together, day 2 we started on my JVC x700 we turned off a few options that i had on like keystone (-2), auto iris, etc some basic items that are usually on out of the box. We started off by doing Brightness, Contrast, Tint & Color with some basic slides form Spears & Munsil, DVE & Disney WOW, after that we Proceeded to use the latest Calman5, my i1display pro and my lumagen mini( for more test patterns), unfortunately i didn't do a pre cal to show you the difference but attached is my post calibration results, the Gamma is set to 2.1 on the projector seems to be a offset of .2 from the software and the setting on the device, originally we started off with 2.0 and were receiving 2.2 as end result. Michael explained how the film industry range is typically 2.2-2.6 and most films are produced anywhere between the 2.2 and 2.4 range, so with that in mind... and not knowing if a movie is 2.2,2.3 or 2.4 we decided on setting the projector in 2.3 as an end result would be best..

Here is the results









as far as the PQ, i've never seen the picture look so good, I watch Divergent last night and the PQ and black levels, were Amazing i'm only 87 hours in on the projector and every other Bluray i have watched to this point has never looked this good, getting a private lesson from Michael was definitely worth it, this is the first projector that i've did properly, i've owned calman and the i1display for 2ish years now and attempted to do calibration on my old projectors but it was never this drastic of a change. if anyone has the opportunity to pay someone to calibrate your projector or teach you the process i would say its definitely worth doing for the cost of a lesson/calibration and the amount these projectors cost its almost a no brainer....

My problem is I spent thousands on calibration software, meter, then had a pro do my display while giving me lesson...but my RS57 projector just looks great now and I have no motivation to go through all the trouble tweaking it myself. Ah well...

Just last night I was watching a Blu-Ray and I'm still gobsmacked at how beautiful the color is on this projector!

Rich, don't you have any other displays in your house that could benefit from calibration, or friends/family that you could use your investment on... and also keep up with your knowledge on the app?

i kinda feel the same way as you i don't want to touch the JVC anymore but i'll definitely start working on my other displays, i have a 65" panasonic VT a 60" panasonic ST and a 50" Samsung UHD 8550, along with some other displays that might not have the proper settings to calibrate.

Nope.

I'm very busy with work (like I'm sure many are here) 7 days a week and the last thing I want to do is spend my off-time fiddling with such things. I didn't make a home theater just to create more work for myself; I just want to flop on the sofa and watch a movie.

New DLA-RS57U installed, need help with 3D glasses

I just installed a RS57U projector. Everything works except 3D. I purchased an RF PKEM2P emitter from the AVS store. Now I have brand new SSG-5150 Samsung glasses that came with my Samsung LED TV. I thought they were supposed to work, but they do not. These have already been paired with my Samsung TV. Is it possible that after pairing them with the Samsung TV they will fail to work with the projector or is there an incompatibility?

Would appreciate some input.

Thanks in advance

Re-tested several times, and it works now. I am seeing to much flickering though in 3D, is that normal?

Noticeable 3D flickering, especially in bright scenes, is normal for JVC projectors. I find I get used to it within the first few minutes of a movie and really don't notice it after that.
