Getting the error code is a bit of a project in itself, especially if you don't have all the right stuff handy. You'll need a computer with a serial port (or a USB serial adapter), a terminal...

Take a gander at the classifieds. At one extreme, you'll see people asking in the $800-900 ballpark and selling them immediately, and at the other extreme there are people asking mid-teens and...

Hi CJ,

I went from CRT to the RS45 about four years ago or so. Like you, I was also addicted to CRT black levels, and was unsure if I was willing to lose those excellent black levels. The RS45 was...

IA Meet?

Great movie, but it made me very angry. Saddening and maddening. Great picture and sound, though. The scenes from the rooftop at night with the insurgents closing in and the firefight were crazy. Say...

I think the contrast (excuse the pun) in Darren's, Chris', Joel's and my posts, taken together, sort of inadvertently get to a pretty key issue in this discussion. Displays are all getting very good...

That's not quite right, Darren. The new JVC's are indeed accepting a native UHD input signal, but they are not down-scaling to 1080p. It does have to create two 1920x1080 sub-pixel images, but that's...

I completely agree with you. Of course, it doesn't help it all that I just can't stand Ben Stiller. Just not a fan. The Parents/Fockers movies were kind of funny, but I get the feeling he isn't...

I assume you're connecting to the JVC via HDMI... It's weird that it's defaulting to 1920x1200. The JVC should be reporting what resolutions it can accept, and I don't think 1920x1200 is one of them....

Official JVC X30 / RS45 owner's thread!

A friend destroyed his RS2 with a cheap lamp when the connector arced and melted. So, I would not use cheap $37 generic lamps.

I would be OK using the Philips lamps in aftermarket housings...
