Is the bulb on Amazon better than the Osram P-VIP 200 bulb that was recommended earlier in the thread? Here is the bulb:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


It is just the bare bulb, so you have to fit it into an old casing, but that isn't too difficult.

Do you still have the LCR 10 Gold grills? I need 3. I will buy them. Interested? Sorry I'm not on topic but couldn't find any other way to contact you.

Thanks

Question,

Do you have to have an Anamorphic Lens to get this projector(JVC RS2) to display on a 120" screen less than 18 feet??? BTW i a noob! lol I have this projector connected to my ps3 for testing distance and played a blu-ray and netflix. biggest i could get the screen to go was for a 100" screen at 18'. I saw no zoom feature. Am i correct that this projector will only hit 120" beyond 18 feet?? The calculators all show this to be possible before 18'.

So what is everyone else doing in terms of replacement lamps these days. Don't feel like paying $400 for a new lamp, but would love a good deal on a JVC OEM lamp.

You do not say if you are talking 120" diagonal or width, nor what aspect ratio. For a 120" wide image the throw range is 13'-6" to 27'-9". See page 20 of the owners manual: http://www.projectorcentral.com/pdf/...anual_3894.pdf
You have to hit the test pattern button. It is labeled as test on the remote.

RPMA184 would be the best mount. RPA184 would be second choice and RPAU would be third choice. Need to know distance from ceiling to top of image and ceiling height. Also need to know if you have a riser under your seats. Call to discuss and for pricing.

Big Thanks to Mike at AV Science for helping me with my purchase with my mount!

Thank you for taking my call so late and helping me purchase the correct mount for my RS2. Bonus for me is that i got to talk and get information needed to keep me moving in the right direction for my HT.

Yes. Both the RS1 and RS2 use the same lamp.

Any specific instructions for a first timer?

Does the bulb just come right out or is there a certain way to get it out of the casing?

There are four small philips head screws holding the module together. Then there are metal spring clips holding the lamp against the open end of the housing. The spring clips are loose and one of the more frustrating aspects is getting them to stay in place while reassembling the module so they hold the corners of the lamp in place.

Search youtube and you can find a video for relamping this module.

So it seems that the BHL5009 was replaced with the BHL5012 which prevents out-gassing and film buildup on the prism. Anyone find this lamp for a good price? I can only find it on the AVS store, can't even see this lamp for sale at JVC which is weird.
