Interesting that they don't list native contrast ratio.

Hm, the Epson 5040 has a max calibrated native contrast ratio of 7000:1, and a max calibrated brightness of 1600 Lumens

The RS420 on the other hand has a minimum native contrast of 16,000:1 and a max calibrated brightness of 1540 Lumens.

I'd also go check out some reviews, most report the e-Shift on the JVCs is sharper/better than Epson's, pixel fill factor is better (less SDE)...

And as for price, you might want to check out closeout pricing on the RS420 or call AV Science about B-stock RS400's.

I received an Amazon FireTV Stick the other day, and I cannot for the life of me get sound through my RadianceXD. I've tried everything I can think of; with and without the HDMI extender, with and without an HDMI switch, etc. Everything else works fine, from the Open Source Scan Converter, through modern videogame consoles, to my Apple TV 4.

The only way I've been able to get sound is to run it through my Oppo BDP-103, which is connected to my amplifier via stereo analogue. It's a bit of a pain to do it this way (turn on the Oppo with Eject so it doesn't play the disc in the tray, switch to that rear HDMI input...), so I'd love to hear suggestions as to how to solve this. I've turned on stereo sound output on the Stick, turned CEC and such off, etc. Please help
