You're right, I was thinking Super White by typed Enhanced. Duh. Thanks for the correction. I've fixed my post.

What is the latest version?
post #3333 of 3669
28.056
post #3334 of 3669
Thx.

THX moved HMDI to superwhite, but it switches right back when you switch modes to something else.

Humm, it did not do that for me (I got bit by it) but I no longer have the projector.

Yeah, most of the time it does, but I have had several occasions where it did not for whatever reason..... SJ

Pardon my barging in, but I have a spare new PK-12210UP lamp assembly for sale, please see my sig for anyone interested.
post #3338 of 3669
I've just got myself a RS55. I'll probably get it calibrated once I clock up some hours on the lamp but I'd appreciate some advise on basic settings using the projectors setup menu. Thanks in advance.
post #3339 of 3669
I would just do some basic brightness and contrast and just use THX.... SJ
post #3340 of 3669
I have a BDP-095. I don't see those setting anywhere. I tried deep color, but I didn't get any picture in any of the modes, so I left it turned off.

Hi! I just bought a x70 in europe. It has firmware 28.059. I had to go into service menu to enable eshift/mpc because it was off.

A question: Can I see runningtime on the machine somewhere, not only lamp running time? So I now I haven´t been fooled...
was a little tiny tiny hardly noticebale scratch on the cover and 2 fingerprints:(

On sony you can see it in the service menu, but can not see it in the jvc service menu...
If it is a question on pushing a series of buttons or it just isn´t possible to see the runningtime of the projector itself...

The indicator lights on my RS55 are 2 red with the orange flashing repeatedly once. The lens cover will not close. I've unplugged, and replugged twice, and the trigger activates the screen, but no lamp is set, and then after 1min, the systems shuts down, and the indicator light flashes again. Any advise?
post #3343 of 3669
Took pj into authorized repair shop. Turns our the lamp blew up. JVC to cover repair.
post #3344 of 3669
The JVC rep. advised that static electricity can cause a problem with the failure of lamps. The suggestion is to have a well balanced humidifier system. This may be more important for those of us north were low winter temps have our heating systems running hard, and keeping the air dry.

I just received a new RS56. I have a couple of questions. It is running firmware 20.001.

1. The "custom gamma" menu item is grayed out. How do I change gamma? Do I need to go into some sort of service menu? If so how do I get into it.
2. eShift - Can't quite figure how you turn it on and off. I went through the menues but couldn't find an item item that says eShift on/off.

Don't know about RS56, but if it is similar to RS55, then eshift is turned ON automatically, although you can go to service menu to turn it off if you want. In the normal menu, you can set at different levels (MPC) though.

For custom gamma, you don't need to go to service menu. Are you in THX? Try go to user mode 1-5 and you should be able to change it.
post #3347 of 3669
You might need to go into the advanced menu to actually change settings in the custom gamma (you can change the gamma selection in the first menu where the contrast, etc are shown).

In the MPC menu there is a item labeled 4K - your choices include film, high resolution, etc, and OFF. When you turn 4K off you have 2K and eshift is off.

I have a question about utilization of 4Kx2K Resolution from my Oppo 103 into my 55. When I choose this output from the Oppo, I just get a blue screen on my 55. I assume since this is a 4K projector it should accept the upscaled output from the Oppo. The signal is not passing through my AV receiver so that isn't the problem. My HDMI cable is also rated for 4K. Can I get some guidance? I did a search the thread, but got nothing that looked like the answer.

Any other advice on how to get the best results from the Oppo 103 into the 55 would be appreciated too. I love the 103. Noticable difference in PQ over the PS3 I was using for BR before.

The JVC's up convert to 4K. They will not accept a 4K input. The Sony VW1000ES is the only consumer projector currently on the market that can accept a 4K input.

To further explain, to display a 4k one needs a 4K panel. If one does not have a 4K panel, one needs to down rez the source into the number of pixels the panel can display. Fine and dandy. The JVCs use 1080p panels. They can display a 1080p source. Anything higher, and they can't display it. At present there aren't really any 4K sources available to consumers anyway. Why have your Oppo upscale 1080p to 4HD when even if the JVC could accept it, it would just have to undo what the oppo upscaled? The Oppo could upscale and feed the Sony but then the question would be, which upscaler was better, the one in the Oppo or the one in the Sony.

so what's with the JVC displaying 4K. By shifting every other image frame over and down one half pixel and by scaling 1080p sources to 4k internally and then by massive processing extracting two very adjusted 1080p frames so that when flashed, with a pixel size that overlaps the pixels partially, one gets 4Hd pixels on the screen. really only 1080p at a time buy flashed fast enough so you and your eyes are tricked into seing 4HD pixels. rather nifty but not the same as having a true 4K source and displaying it as it was shot with one to one pixel mapping.
post #3352 of 3669
Thanks for those answers! I assumed the Oppo would do a better job of up-scaling, and the 55 would accept it as 4K. I see now the 55 isn't capable of that. That being said, with a 1080 input from the Oppo the 55 picture is absolutely awesome. Even sitting less than 10ft from a 136" Carada BW scope screen. I'm extremely impressed and pleased.
post #3353 of 3669
I'm considering buying a used RS55. If anyone has one for sell please pm me. I need it to have excellent convergence and focus.

Thanks,
Tom

I moved to the x70 from the x30, strange enough the fan is more loud on the x70. It was wisper quiet on the x30.

Does anyone know what moving from firmware 29.056 to 29.059 does?
Can firmware regulate fan speed? I had 29.056 on my x30 so that was a thought, that they had programmed the fan to go faster.
Maby doesn´t work that way but also thought it was done to extend lamp life...

Had a couple of vw85; with varitations in fanspeed. A shame all can´t be the same:(

I ran that update back in June, but I don't recall what the changes were. I didn't notice any changes in fan speed.

it could be a bad fan. Is it still under warranty?
post #3356 of 3669
Hi! yes i bought it 3 weeks ago. But the difference is what I think 3-4db maby. Do not think they will bother with it:(
It can be clearly heard when running a film in low volume, while I could not here it at all with x30 keeping a film in the same volume.

It might be your fan in your unit. I believe there was a thread from a member that posted regarding the fan noise. IIRC he disassembled the unit with photos to document.My unit is whisper quiet and it sits above and behind my seating position.
post #3358 of 3669
I have a chance to purchase a brand new sealed RS55 from an authorized dealer. Has this model had any focus or convergence issues? Restocking fee is 10% so that is a concern. I need to make a decision FAST.

Thanks,
Tom
post #3359 of 3669
I had a convergence issue with my original purchase, but JVC replaced it with a new pj, and it's been great:D
post #3360 of 3669
I made minor adjustments to convergence, then dialed in focus and never touched it again. There's over 500 hours on mine.
