RVI Inc fixed my Planar 8150 (would not power on), they charge a fixed $1000 for any repair they complete. RVI is where Planar sends you for repairs.

I don't see how that's any better than a lamp with a good DI. We've seen time and time again that modulated LEDs can't work any magic over a good DI on the DLP side, I don't see why Laser or LCoS...

I'm sitting tight with my Samsung. I'll have to see what I can do as far as HDR calibration (not 100% satisfied yet), but the Samsung seems to work fine as a transport. Maybe JVC will improve the...

Just to clarify, digital Keystone correction doesn't shift images up/down, it changes the shape. If you mount a projector unlevel, it produces a non-square image, you end up with a trapezoid (or...

Did you check the Gamma settings? I just got my RS600 and the default for them, with Gamma D is not 12/5/5, I believe it's 0,0,0 and that's way off (very dark).
