post #4111 of 4215
I'm going to be moving in the new year and I'm not taking my HT setup with me as there won't be a basement (yet) in the new place. I wan't to sell the RS50 now before the prices plummet when the new models come out.

What do you think I should sell a: RS50 with less then 300 hours + spare bulb + 3D emitter + 3 sets of glasses for?

Has anyone here just decided to say f@$& it, and just run in High lamp mode all the time?

got mine mated with a highpower 2.8 and wouldn't dream of setting it on high. my aperture is still at the minimum setting to get some deep dark blacks.

going on about 200hrs

Been using mine in normal lamp mode only. Acceptable brightness so far (2D only) but still under 100 hours on lamp and not calibrated yet. Throw ~16', aperature 10. Full light controlled room with ST 130G3, 135" - 147" diag. (aspect dependant).

Hmmm, was not aware of the 'screen adjust' mode didn't see that chart in the manual. Will try that out.

Running proj Isf calibrated in high lamp mode. Looks great. What's the max life on high lamp mode before I should replace bulb? 1200 hrs?

Until it's no longer bright enough for you. Really. That's the answer. It depends on so many things, including if you got a dud bulb.

Hello....yes....what are you waiting for?? Had Jeff calibrate it for that. Did you have him do it on low?

Jeff did initially calibrate it, we tested 2 different bulbs, the original, and the replacement. I have since lost the gamma adjustments he did, and I've re-calibrated with ISF day/night modes and am very happy with the accuracy of the picture.

Jeff certainly has his proprietary techniques to get more fL's out of it (and I now understand how and why with hours of trial and error over the past year), I am pretty comfortable calibrating JVC's and getting great results. I still think he is the best calibrator in the US.

I have to tell you between the RS50 and the Panasonic VT30 I have become quite seasoned

The only reason I have not gone to torch mode is I have not reached that point where it's too dim and I am curious how steep the degradation would be over time.

I have a Radiance Mini and am using Chromapure with a Chroma 5 device. I just finished calibrating 2d and am quite pleased. I would like to try my hand at a 3d calibration but need a little guidance:

I suspect the first step is to somehow mount the glasses over the Chroma 5.
I would then use the 3d profile on the rs50. Then fire up chromapure and start the autocalibration. Do I need to make any specific changes to the Mini?

Finally decided to cal my RS 50. I'm having a bit of trouble finding;

1.) Best starting point for calibration.
2.) best methodology for dealing with greyscale and gamma interaction
3.) best methodology for dealing with cms.
4.) bought the pj in May '11. Any worthwhile firmware updates?

With over 2000 posts and 138 pages In this thread alone, it's a bit daunting, even with thread search and forum search.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,
Tom

Has anyone used a fat 60GB PS3 with their RS50 for 3D? Can't seem to get mine to work together.

John,

I have used my 60gb PS3 with the RS50 and played Motorstorm in 3D, though I have not tried any movies as I use the Oppo 93 for that.

mntwister,
Thanks, that should be the same as a movie but then who knows

You might check the settings on the PS3, it's been a while since I played that game but there was some setting I had to change. I'll check it out tomorrow and see if I can find what I did.

I think it was the video settings that change when a 3D display is detected. That happened when it was hooked up to my Panasonic Viera. It didn't happen with my RS50.

Try connecting the PS3 diretly to the RS50, without going through anything in the middle (no HDMI switch, receiver, etc). I originally had a problem going through a switch, but it worked fine connected directly. Having something in the middle can sometimes mess up the HDMI handshake such that the PS3 doesn't recognize that the display is 3D capable.

Shagg,
You read my mind. Was about to try this.
Thanks,

Something b/t the ps3 and RS50. Works directly.

Hi guys, I think the emitter port on my RS50 is dead. I use the Monstervision emitter, and I had some intermittent issues with it working on the projector at first back in April, but it worked well for a long time until a few days ago. Now the Monster emitter will not acknowledge any signal from the emitter port.

I picked up the JVC emitter yesterday to try to isolate the problem, but no one locally has any compatible glasses to try with it. Question, does the JVC emitter have any indication that it is functioning without glasses available? I think it is the projector, but I don't want to return it for repair without verifying the source of the issue.

sorry to hear that. I don't want to bother you, but can you tell us how the monstervision work with the jvcs? are there better than the xpands/jvcs in terms of ghosting? could you tune out the most ghosting?

i am thinking of buying the monstervisions as well or the new xpand x104.
post #4134 of 4215
Deepsky,
Do you have an LCD video camera? Usually, the IR filters are not great in these, so you can 'see' the emitter output using a video camera. The cheaper the camera, the worse the IR filter, so the better for this purpose.


I've got the JVC emitter at home, so I'll check if there is any external indication later this evening and get back to you.

Regards,

Tom

Tom has a good suggestion with the camera since they can see the IR emitter.

How are you powering the Monster Vision RF device, with a blackberry type charger? are the lights pulsing back and forth red even when a 3D movie is playing?

That would be the cheapest option, if he already has one.

Another option is an IR viewing card. But they are expensive. For example:

post #4137 of 4215
Thanks guys, I thought the JVC would give some indication like an led status or something. The Monster works great, but I haven't tried anything else, since the reviews from others were convincing. I'll see if my phone camera can see anything on other IR emitters and then check the JVC. My gut feeling is that the Monster emitter is correct, that there is nothing coming out of the projector, even though I've fed it plenty of different 3D signals, and it even reports that it is SBS or FP.
post #4138 of 4215
Tom, your idea worked great, but unfortunately, my projector is not outputting a sync signal. I'll have to send it in for repair.

Anyone out there have any tips on the best way to obtain warranty service? Which number to call or any other info would be great. Thanks!!!

give the #800 a call, there is also a form for sending it in on that link as well.

I've always worried about that port getting fried. I built a 3 pin splitter so I can have the Monster Vision emitter and the JVC emitter hooked up at the same time to avoid plugging in/out.

please let us know how you make out, this is the first time i've heard of this port having issues.

Hey, I need your help on this. I have an x9 calibrated in high lamp mode Isf. I am hearing a processing type sound interlaced with the fan noise. The noise is not loud but u def hear it. I recorded it and sent to Jvc and they said it was all 6 fans in the unit speeding up and slowing down at different times and the noise I was hearing interlaced in the fan blower noise was normal. If u can pls put your projector in high lamp with no sound on and do u only hear the fan blowing making a consistent sound or do u hear this interlaced processing sound as well. I want o make sure Jvc is not feeding me a bunch of bs. The pic is amazing and no effect. I have a copy of the audio file I can send if u r willing to listen. Any help is appreciated. I just want to make sure what I'm hearing is normal.
