The AV7702 is a processor only, so has no power amps built in like the X5200 does so they aren't both 'AVRs'. The AV7702 supposedly has higher quality DACs, etc so should sound better (with a...

The 'version 3' lamp issue was for the previous JVC range (X3/X30/RS40/RS45), it is a different lamp and power supply for the X500/RS49 and they are not interchangeable. As far as I know there has...

I have an Isco II lens which I used to use with my old JVC X35. Sometimes I'd leave it in place after watching a 2.35:1 film and maybe watch a concert disc. I found that often I could view the...

Sorry to keep bumping this thread. :o

Last night I realised that I had my '93 coax output set to LPCM so I wasn't getting DTS 'core' from a DTS MA disc I was watching. I changed over to...

Sorry, a school boy error on my part, though 1.33 isn't correct either. For sake of anyone else trying to work this out if their amp manual doesn't show maximum input signal:

I don't have an AE8000 but I wouldn't use 36 bit deep colour as it just increases data rate down your HDMI cable for no gain (chances are it is only 'padding' the signal to 36 bits anyway and there...

Perhaps it is lamp flicker? Might be worth running in high lamp for a few hours (close the aperture down a bit to compensate) to see if it resolves itself. When my old HD350 developed a flicker I was...

I think I'm clutching at straws with this question, but it's worth asking:

Is there any way to delay the audio by 100mS when using the '93 analogue outputs? I have lip sync issues when using the...

Auto 1 gives a more aggressive setting to the dynamic iris compared to Auto 2. I believe it closes down further (hence giving a higher on/off contrast and lower black level), but the side effects...
