There were plenty of folks who posted over the last 10 months with lamp issues that ranged across from the 40 to the 60.
if they want to undermine the issue to trade show attendees, that makes business sense, I get it. especially using the same lamp in the 2012 models.
Did they make excuses for the CMS and Gamma as well. I was told directly from JVC they would not be issuing a firmware update for the 50/60. At least they fixed it on the RS20.
