So here's my question... if I wait 30-45 minutes after I turn on the projector to switch into 3D mode and watch a movie, and I STILL see significant amounts of ghosting, does that mean it's something wrong with the lamp or the projector itself?
Ghosting is worst at initial start-up. It should be reduced after an hour or so of warm-up. However, if a disc is really bad for ghosting, I wouldn't count on it to be completely eliminated. Keep in mind that the content itself does play a part in this. Some discs are more prone to ghosting than others. How to Train Your Dragon is virtually unwatchable on this projector, while other titles may show little to no ghosting.
I only have about 10 hours total on my lamp. Will this improve once I get more hours on my lamp since it's brand new?
If anything, ghosting gets worse as the lamp ages. There appears to be a correlation between image brightness and ghosting. The artifact increases as your lamp dims.
Make sure that you use a separate calibration preset for 3D. Open your iris all the way, and turn up the Contrast. I've found that these things help.
I'm also using the Xpand glasses. Would this have any effect on the visibility of ghosting versus the official JVC glasses?
Xpand actually makes JVC's glasses too. I have a pair of each. The tint and polarization are different, but visibilty of ghosting is pretty much identical.
