Official JVC X30 / RS45 owner's thread!

post #1 of 4435
Thread Starter 
I just picked up my first 1080p projector after holding out all these years!
Mind you I have had projectors since the 3 tube Sonys from back in the mid 90s...
Then went through a bunch of Sharp, Epson and finally Sony but these projectors were prior to the HDMI input days.

I want first to thank this board for helping make my decision whilst doing my research.
On my list was the PT4000 or the PT7000 until I saw the X30 in action thanks to Dave Hao of Eastporters.
There was no turning back! LOL!

Anyways, attached are photos of the unboxing.

I do have one issue though.
My Anthem D2 preamp/processor's output through HDMI does not send a signal to the X30.

I used the same HDMI cable from my son's Xbox360 and no problems at all.
That's how I managed to get the screen shots.
The problem now is there is no audio...

Is there an issue with the D2 HDMI output going to the JVC?
I currently use that output for my Pioneer Plasma and it works fine.
It's very puzzling....

Congratulations Dave!

Did you buy the 3D emitter and glasses or are you using it for 2D only?
post #4 of 4435
Thats awesome they are starting to ship out now, this means I should be getting mine anyday as I to am from Canada but ordered from Quebec Accustic. Perfect timing as I just finished building my screen and hung it tonight.

Any opinions on the motion handling? Looks like you're gaming on it...

Yes I would also like to know about the motion handling on it. Is it burring too much on fast motion scenes when gaming? Is it bothersome to you? Please let us know. Thanks!

Thanks!

I ordered the emitter but will be getting it on Friday.
Got 2 pairs of glasses though...

I somehow managed to get the Anthem D2 to talk to the X30 finally.
Just finished watching Training Day.

@ NNate
@SED <--- Rules
I could detect slight 'jitter' on fast motion scenes.
It wasn't distracting though.
I have everything on default settings and the picture profile on 'film'.

Will play with the settings more tomorrow..

What version of HDMI is your processor? May want to try changing the sequence of your startup as this might help if it is an older version. Turn on the processor and source before firing up the jvc. Worth a try. SJ

I don't know which version I have but it's an Anthem D2 from 3 years back.

I somehow managed to get it to work finally.
I think it was in the sequence you mentioned where the PJ was initially off.

Does gaming on it feel good? (Any problems with input lag?)
post #11 of 4435
How come it says X30B and not RS45?
I thought in North America we'd get the RS45 product number
Am I missing something?


Can't wait to get mine

X30 for the commercial division and RS45 for the professional division.
post #13 of 4435
The drool from my mouth is running all over the keyboard!!
Congrats..now where the hell is mine? lol
post #14 of 4435
Hey AVS, I want my RS45 soon !!

They are identical except from what I understand the RS45 is sold through the professional division. ie installers etc.
The RS45 has a gold ring around the lens surround whilst the X30 is silver...

The warranty is 3 years on the X30 and only 2 on the RS45.

Makes more sense to go for the one with the longer warranty!

From what I remember, the only difference is the color of the material around the lens. The RS45 has a gold surround while the X30 has a silver one.

didn't it come early for you too?

thanks for letting me know about the difference in X30 vs RS45.
Knowing that I should've ordered the X30

Since you are the first, you might start the owner's thread if you like, before it was discussed that many of us wanted a 2D only owner's thread and a 3D one separate, so the 2D thread doesn't fill up with 3D complaints. Start either one you like, both if you prefer, or none...

Can I just change the title of the thread to 'owner's thread'?
post #22 of 4435
I was going to get the X30 because of the three year warranty, but ended up going with the RS45 because I was able to get a much better deal on it. And I'll leave it at that.
post #23 of 4435
Mine just shipped out today!

Unfortunately my theater is a couple weeks from being done! I can't wait to get it installed....

I thought that was a better deal considering the bulb will probably be an issue before theirs a warranty issue. Well at least that's what I keep telling myself.

jbrown15,

Can I ask where you got the free bulb deal? (That's a great deal!)

thanks
post #25 of 4435
Sorry guys I probably shouldn't have put that in my post. I promised my dealer not to say anything because then everybody would be asking for the same deal and he can't afford to give out free bulbs with each projector.
post #26 of 4435
I was wondering the same thing.
post #27 of 4435
I can't wait for my projector to arrive. I'm guessing it will be just a little bit of an upgrade from my Optoma HD70...lol

I'm going to upgrade from a 92" screen to a 112" too.
post #28 of 4435
Got the notification yesterday mine is on the way too....should be here tomorrow. So excited. Though at the same time it is complete torture!

We are building a house right now and am having the basement finished and as part of the project in the basement I already have a sand-filled stage built (the builder raised an eyebrow and said "you wanna do what?!" when I told him) and am now just beginning to work on the curved screen (aluminum frame is already done...now it is the "details".

But it is still a couple months away from its debut...so I guess I will live vicariously through you guys for now
post #29 of 4435
also an upgrade from my BenQ PE7700 (which btw, I thought was good lol). Can't wait to see this beast in action.

Not to burst anybody's warranty balloon, the JVC USA consumer site clearly list the warranty on the X30 as being 2 years. Only the top of the line unit has a three year warranty just like the top of the pro line, the RS65, has a three year warranty. Click the details link.
