They didn't have the bulb in stock and it took a week or two for them to ship it. I guess they source from someone else, who, I don't know.

I helped my friend set up one in a living room. A winner for sure if you can get by with 720p. It is very bright, colors good out of the box and not too noisy.

Tried the fourth key down on the remote, no luck there either. I will wait for the new remote to arrive and try to have the MX-500 learn from that one if it controls the equipment itself. Thanks!
