I like the planned upgrades!!!

I will get the Oppo 203 when it is released.

And will get a JVC 4K once they hit the $5000-$6000 street price.

@SOWK

JVC quasi-4K available now or the 2017/2018 version?

I currently have an E-Shift 4K so I am interested in a real 4K once they hit the $5-6000 street price mark.

If you are asking for yourself I would just wait it out another year or two if you can. Unless you buy this years models and want to updgrade again in 3 years or less.

I think my projector (old) still looks good.
Hope to hold out for real 4K and cheaper.
Upgrading Lumagen and plan Oppo in the meantime.

Lightbulb MENU 0819 - Pro to only report HDCP 1.X to HDCP 2.2 sources like the Fire

In prep for non-streaming Oppo UDP-203 I thought I would re-try my Amazon Fire TV (FTV,5/3/16 purchase).
I had the old FTV stick original version (10/27/14 purchase), but it seemed slow and I have internet access in my MA rack so, thought the FTV would be faster and hard wired.
However, I had issues getting it to work.
Those notes here:
New Lumagen Radiance Pro Series

Solution was provided by jrp himself:
Quote:
The Fire is HDCP 2.2 and so you need a HDCP 2.2 TV/projector if you go through the Pro (except see below).
If you have a HDCP 2.2 TV/projector on a HDCP 2.2 input you can contact support@lumagen.com for help with this.

If you have a HDCP 1.X TV/Projector you can get a HDCP 2.2 to HDCP 1.X down rev box like the HDFury Integral of Key Digital HDFix22.
Put this between the Pro and the TV/projector.

If you have a HDCP 1.X TV/projector you should get an output from the Pro using the Fire if you tell the Pro to only report HDCP 1.X to HDCP 2.2 sources like the Fire.
This is in the Menu but the direct command for this is MENU 0819.
Make sure to Save after the change.
I do/did use the Oppo BDP-103 streaming functions including Netflix, HBO Go, and Vudu. Will miss Vudu, but at least can still watch Netflix.

Oppo BDP-103 MA rackmount kit with the UDP-203

Notes from Oppo Customer Service:

Quote:
While you can use the BDP-103 rackmount kit with the UDP-203, it may interfere with the UDP-203’s internal Wi-Fi antennae. If you plan on using the built-in Wi-Fi, we recommend using the rackmount kit specifically designed for the UDP-203.
Sounds okay since I use ethernet.

Lumagen RadiancePro 4444 18 GHz input cards (x2) and ouput card (x1) in bound.

Kind of wish I had gone for a 4446 (8 inputs) now.

4240: 2 inputs, 2 processed outputs, 1U case
4242: 4 inputs, 2 processed outputs, 1U case
4440: 2 inputs, 4 processed outputs, 2U case
4442: 4 inputs, 4 processed outputs, 2U case
4444: 6 inputs, 4 processed outputs, 2U case
4446: 8 inputs, 4 processed outputs, 2U case
4449: 8 inputs, 4 processed outputs, 2U case, 6 switched outputs

Lumagen RadiancePro 4444 18 GHz Input & Output cards

Latest Lumagen RadiancePro 4444 FW (121716) installed last night.
Working on 18 GHz input cards (x2) and output card (x1) install.

*EDIT*
Looks like it is working.
Exchanged (9 -> 18 GHz) output x1
Exchanged (9 -> 18 GHz) input x1 and added another 18GHz input (2 total now) = 8 inputs. Four 18 GHz.

That effectively converts the modular design from Pro 4444 to Pro 4446.

JVC DLA-X5500/X7500/X9500 3 new HT projectors 2017

This is interesting:

JVC DLA-X5500/X7500/X9500 3 new HT projectors 2017

Quote:
JVC, Japanese manufacturer, contrast champion, will be released in early 2017, three new home cinema references DLA, the JVC

DLA-X5500 (? 4,490)
DLA-X7500 (? 6,490)
DLA -X9500 (? 9,990)

They should be available between the months of March and April 2017.
3 lamps models 1080P slightly changed from the X5000 / X7000 / X9000.

Seems like only a firmware update to enhance HDR performance according to the article.

If they are bringing out new chassis models(UHD?) later in 2017, this 'refresh' and new/er model nomenclature would make sense, as existing hardware stock of the current models could be used up and moved before then.

Looks like JVC will be making room for the new native 4k projectors come December 2017.

You'll have a JVC 4K at the beginning of 2017. It's called the RS4500. Beyond that, it's highly unlikely that there will be more 4K JVC's for a couple of years. Certainly not at the same prices as the current lineup. But my crystal ball is somewhat cloudy !

The same place they get the idea every year when we discuss CEDIA. For the last few years everyone has been saying this has got to be the year or they'll be passed over and yet here we are. I would be very surprised to see JVC release a non-4500 native 4K projector next year. If they did, it would probably just be the top line one and a price increase to put it more in line with the stateside cost of the 675ES from Sony. No laser, just native 4K. I think we are a few generations out from seeing native 4K across the whole line. I'm also interested in whether the statement projector from JVC will continue or if this will go like the Qualia line with one and done because the market can't sustain it, though I've heard presales have been better than expected so far.

Thumbs down ABC app on Amazon Fire TV (stick)

ABC didn't work last night on DirecTV.
Tried the Amazon stick (old version) and could "see" ABC app, but not sure it worked.
Read this:
https://www.amazon.com/watch-ABC-app...sin=B00BYJ6BUO

Quote:
WHY is this not available for the fire tv stick, but works for the fire TV? We own both for two different TVs and it's super annoying not to have the ABC app on the TV in my bedroom.
Quote:
how can we not watch ABC through amazon fire stick - this is ridiculous
Quote:
The description of the app says it needs gps location, and the stick doesn't have that. I'm having the same problem!!!!
Quote:
No, it doesn't work on the Fire Stick. At least not the new one with the voice remote. Ridiculous. Anyone have a solution or workaround for this?

EDIT:
Somehow I got the stick to work.

Oppo UDP-203

Oppo UDP-203 is installed.


EDIT:
When turned on it did a FW upgrade.
I thought that was new one, but misread.

It is/was Main Version: UDP20X-29-1209 not the new beta version (via USB) --
Main Version: UDP20X-33-1229B
Loader Version: TF0027
MCU Version: MCU203-01-1118

Will correct that.

Quote:
Comparing to the current Official release version UDP20X-29-1209, the major changes included in this version are:
  • Resolved an issue where the Home Menu was fixed to a 60 Hz frame rate.
  • Resolved an HDCP 2.2 failure when connecting to an HDCP 2.2 receiver and an older, non-HDCP 2.2 display.
  • Resolved a black screen issue with certain UHD titles after resuming playback.
  • Improved a micro-stuttering issue when outputting UHD, BD, and DVD titles at 24 Hz.
  • Resolved an SACD playback issue where the player would immediately return to the Home Menu.
  • Optimized disc loader performance for better disc compatibility and spin speed control.
  • Resolved an issue where the player could not recognize music files when using Serviio server.
  • Resolved an issue where the RS-232 command #SRC would not work on the UDP-203.
  • Pressing and holding the Resolution button on the remote for three seconds will reset the player’s Output Resolution, HDR, Color Space, and Color Depth settings to factory defaults.
  • Improved the gapless playback feature for audio files.
  • The Home Menu now supports a wrap-around function.
  • Improved the over-saturation of colors when using the experimental Strip Metadata feature. Please note that the black level is temporarily fixed to a very low level when enabling the Strip Metadata feature.

All features and improvements of the previous firmware are also included in this version.

@GetGray -

Control? You mean remote or AVR?
AVR and other gear listed in post #1. AVR is a Denon 5308CI.
Remote is a collection of individual remotes. I haven't done anything integrative yet.

JVC RS520 in the house.
Much wider than the old RS20 (still in situ).
I'll hopefully install it tonight.

As I was looking at my setup I now wonder why I didn't just build a shelf rather than have a mount on the ceiling.
Live and learn.

I think Chief mount is attached to JVC RS20 projector with Security hex socket (pin-in-hex-socket) screws.
Now to find a driver for that...

After I ran to hardware store to get hex security bits for screws, found out that the Ceiling mount: Chief RPMA (U) Elite - doesn't work with JVC RS520 (too small of brackets).

So, will see if longer brackets available from Chief, or may build a shelf to "future proof".

Shelf system FTW!

Congrats on the RS520!

I just got mine yesterday as well.

Question Chief RPMA Universal / Shelf for projector?

@SOWK

Okay, had to google FTW = For The Win.
I guess you like shelf systems.

I think I have the 2009 era, Chief 1st gen RPMA Universal system.

Information
The offers 1st generation interface technology. This is a great universal solution for RPA Projector mounts.
The adjustable mounting plate, legs and feet provide flexibility for aligning with most mounting hole patterns.

Features
* Bracket
* Exact alignment with the projector
* Provides solution for simplifying inventory of RPA series mounts and SLB projector brackets
* Projector can be shifted around on mounting plate until its weight is centered and balanced
* Made in the USA
* Combination of black, silver and white color

They must not have designed the (6" length) brackets for the now much larger projectors like the RS520.
Not sure if the Chief SLM281 bracket will work with this 1st gen RPMA(U). Will call Chief today.

I looked at old 2007/2008 framing pictures of the basement to think about an adjustable shelf.
Any thoughts on a sturdy, somewhat adjustable shelf for a RS520?

I'm glad you got the JVC RS520. I will look forward to your impressions.
I only played with it a short while and not in position.
The HDR kicking up the high lamp mode has a much louder fan.

No more than you change projectors, why not just get the proper Chief plate for your PJ? And get rid of those spider legs. I can get you one, or your preferred dealer AVS, etc can. They are just over $100 IIRC. Saw your next post later... It's not much more to get the whole mount with gimbal and plate together. You can get that and sell your old one complete.

Chief SLM281 Custom RPM Interface Bracket

I haven't called Chief yet, but this may work for JVC RS520 (X7500)...

@GetGray -

Thanks for the input.
Let me call Chief and see if the Chief SLM281 works with the 1st gen RMPA(U). I presume it should.
Fastest way to get up and running would be to just get that.
The Chief -> Milo link makes me create a dealer account: https://www.milestone.com/my%20account

The Amazon link has a delay.
Would love to get ASAP to mount.

It may be hard to have a new ceiling base as it is screwed into wood in ceiling not a pipe or other standard fixture.
Certainly worth $100 to get it installed fast and then think about these other issues for next projector in a few years.

I was also wondering about:
1. positioning of JVC RS520 vs. RS20 relative to CineSlide and ISCOIIIL anamorphic lens
RS520 and RS20 are about similar length, so may still work okay
2. Do I need anamorphic lens with new projectors having memory modes for that and using the Lumagen Pro?
If I sold both of those should help finance the recent HT updates.


I may message you soon.
I think I have your email address.

Mike
