Also, I've never updated the firmware on the unit so I think I'll do that once it's back up and running, but was there ever a change log released, or does anyone know what the newer firmware does/changes?
I have had my X3 for about 4 months now but only have 35 hrs on it, I have had no issues at all so far so I have not even checked the version of the firmware yet. I also have a Epson 8350 for tv and games which I have been watching more than the JVC although I watched Avengers in 3D last night on the JVC and it looked great.
If your system looks and functions correctly I would leave it be, sometimes upgrading the firmware can cause more problems than it corrects.
As for the bulb, just make sure it is a version 3 bulb with the flapper. I have 2 backup version 3's waiting so I think the X3 will be my primary projector for quite sometime.
