Thanks, I was trying to avoid having to buy crimping tools and make the cable up myself (I've done it before, but it was a fiddle I seem to recall). I've ordered that cable anyway just to try out...

Planing for the future, I'm remodeling my room this year and will likely end up with a HDBT set up. In order to futureproof as much as possible, would running CAT 7 mean that I would be able to...

I hear you Stanger, but I use a lot of the other features of my 2041 such as the aspect ratio controls to 'shrink' when I'm zoomed to 2.35:1 and I want to read the whole of a 16:9 menu. I still watch...

I have tried the JVC autocal, but unfortunately as it relies on a Spyder 4 (annoying since I already own a much better i1D3) my results weren't great and caused other issues with the colour gamut....

I don't know how many hours you got on your RS57 in the end, but with my X500 by the time it reached 150 hours there was a significant droop in the gamma response, which isn't uncommon with JVCs. The...

I've had an amp with a separate LFE level setting, but it was only possible to reduce the LFE (in 1dB steps) which is the opposite of what you were asking for.

I fully understand the reasons why you went this route (especially the 'support' side :)). Thankfully as no one else uses my X500 I use the lens memories (and different user memories for the picture)...

I very much like the improved picture that my 2041 gives over the basic X500 (which has typical gamma droop and the CMS isn't great either), however the extra calibration points that you gain with...

I use a 2041 with my JVC X500 and I'm very happy with it (I've owned Chromapure since it came out in the UK, so naturally I've stuck with it for running the autocal). FWIW I have tried using the 2041...

Thanks for that quick feedback. I would only be using it with one display (the X500) so it sounds like my set up will be relatively straightforward once I actually get a 4K source.

Thanks Ellebob. It's likely that I'll go for the Seymour XD screen in drop down form (2.40:1 tab tensioned), so that's good to hear.

Kind of explains how you can disturb someone 125' away then I guess. Just didn't compute based on my experience, but UK build is more typically brick/cavity/breeze block construction. Probably helps...
