Craig was asking about being able to save it with the lower line of JVC projectors, since someone said that those models had the same ability as the 4500. But you can't save the masking position to a...

The point Craig is trying to make and I brought up this point, right after CEDIA, you can save that masking position to a memory, along with any other settings, including A-lens settings.

When I had the VW1000 and VW600 in my room at the same time, I could tell a difference in test patterns, but as far as sharpness went with movies, I could not tell a difference. I could tell a...

Other than slight variation in the units, noise levels are the same for 4xxx/5xxx and 6xxx series projectors. You never know how one is set up, so there can be differences. E-shift on vs off makes a...

Most AV equipment has the HDMI inputs EQ'ed for a 6' or longer cable. That is why you can experience problems with a shorter cable. Does not mean that you will, but it is a possibility.

Viewed side by side, nobody would pick a VW60 over an RS400/500/600 or RS420/520/620. Heck the image of the VW60 can't compete against the RS4910 from a few years ago. I am very familiar with the...

Sounds like the RS400/X550 was not running the latest firmware. There was an early bug that left some setting on, even though shown to be off in menu. Or they could just be using too much processing....

Sorry, meant picking up RS600 over RS520. THe 500 and the 520 are basically the same projector. Same goes for the 600 and 620. Contrast and brightness wise the 500 is the same as the 520 and 600 is...

I am making an assumption on the minimum throw. It could be as high as 1.8 times screen width. Your screen is not defective, so swapping it out for another screen is not going to change anything. The...

Is your throw longer than 1.5 times the viewing width of your screen? If not, then you will be getting a hot spot. Does not mean that you can't have a hot spot with a longer throw, just means that it...

The parts that are hand selected are the chips and the lens. What would those two parts, even in perfect condition have to do with a projector not powering on?

I think the Chief mounts hold position better than any other mount. RPMA is much easier to set up. RPA does hold slightly better, but not enough of a difference to offset the ease of setup of the...

Side by side, yes. If not side by side, then no. But if your screen is over 106" diag. Then you probably will not use the filter. Talking 1.0 gain here.

No. The 420 does about 85% to 87% of DCI. While the 5040 does 99%, but the 5040 only has around 700 lumens, when doing so. Means, you probably will not be using the filter.
