Exactly! No idea what Dreamliner has done to result in such dark titles. Most of us are guessing that since he doesn't have the Linker, the JVC is switching back to GammaD at some point. That...

Just an FYI, FW0.22 works fine in my setup with Marantz, JVC, Oppo and HTPC. Of course, I prefer Linker to be between my AVR and the projector and wasn't having problems with FW 0.20. I'll be...

Have they fixed the Autocal for the x20s yet? If not, how will you compensate for Gamma droop that the JVCs have over time?

Based on hours / lamp use, you should also run an Autocal to correct any gamma droop, etc. That's all I'm going to feed this dead horse.

Not really a surprise as this was reported in several places and they changed the cover to not include 3D on it. They did the same thing with Underworld: Blood Wars. Blame Sony!

I saw GitS in IMAX 3D and thought it was lacking. Nothing like Rogue One or Magical Creatures. Perhaps it wasn't actually filmed in 3D, but not sure. Because of that, I'm more interested in the...

Yep, been using those settings since nearly Day 1. If Chad recommends all zero's, that's close enough. I don't think a Enhance +2 to 0 will make much difference.

MbtS didn't offer much besides that excellent alley scene. Great acting sure, but that was the movie's high point and it was extremely depressing. Acting isn't the only thing or even main thing I...

IMHO, the truly best movies are those that you want to watch more than once. For me, that's a lot more SciFi than will never be nominated for an Oscar. While I don't mind seeing an artsy or Oscar...

Do you notice any improvement in HDMI sync times? I find the long delays on the JVCs to be their worst attribute.
