Official JVC X30 / RS45 owner's thread! - Page 113

post #3361 of 4435
Hey all, new RS 45 owner here. This is replacing my Pioneer FPJ1.

The first thing I noticed is even with CMD off, there seems to be a bit of the "soap opera " effect. I personally hate that look. While not really bad, I definitely notice it. Can it be eliminated completely?

I absolutely love the memory lens setting. That is really the only reason why I upgraded from the pioneer. I will be doing a 156" Jamestown/seymourAV screen using the zoom method. This definitely fits the bill!
post #3362 of 4435
Also, the Peerless I was using doesn't fit the JVC. Any suggestions for a quality, affordable mount?

Yes, the clear motion drive can be shut off in one of the settings within the menu

Most notable is the ability to support a constant image-height screen. Using a 2.35:1 screen provides a wider image area, and the X30 allows you to zoom a 2.35:1 image to fill it while zooming in for a traditional 16 x 9 image. You could also use two screens, depending on how elaborate you want your setup to be. The X30 supports the use of an anamorphic lens with its internal video processing, even with 3D sources, but using the lens memory provides the ability to do a setup that is cheaper than an optional lens. I only had the chance to use the X30 with my 16 x 9 screen, but I did play around with the lens memory function and it worked pretty well. It records all the steps involved with the shift from one position to another, including zoom, focus, and lens shift, so it can take a bit of time to switch.

Does this mean I don t need a anamorphic lens anymore for 2:35:1?!?! Can someone explain in detail, I don t understand.

And another question:
I have a custom cable for the Optoma (MV3D) glasses that make the Optoma (MV3D) emitter+glasses work with the Sony VW95 projector. Will this cable work with the X30?

I had good luck with a Premier mount www.mounts.com use the search for the x3 or RS40 and it shows up. I did need to get longer metric screws out of some old bags of tv wall mounts I had around other than that it works perfect.

Correct, as long as you have the projector mounted so that you can throw the 16:9 image and 2.34-2.40 image from the projector location, then, yes you can go without a lens. Keep in mind, with the lens, you get the lost pixels in scope movies and added brightness. So I you already have a lens, then use it. A lens is a better set up in my opinion.

The smoothing effect is because you are not used to a 120hz projector even with CMD off, because it is multiplying every frame x 5 (24hz x 5 = 120hz) and I believe using 5:5 pulldown.
I don't believe there is a proper way to force the projector to show it at a lower hz without side effects (maybe). You can try watching at 60hz but it will add judder, or try inverse telecine maybe (cmd 5 I think). You will probably get used to 120hz if you just keep watching it.

So the RS45 has an option to only show the 2:35:1 content and not the black bars?

Yes and no. The black bars are still there. This is for those with 2.35 to 2.40 scope screens. In this application you are running a CIH (constant image height) setup. Also called the poor man's CIH setup. With a scope screen, you use the height of the screen for setup. In other words, when showing 16:9 content (also 4:3) the height of the screen governs how big the image is. You have unused screen on the right and left hand side. When watching a scope movie, the projector zooms and lens shifts so that the screen is completely filled with image. This means the black bars are above and below the screen. With this method you get a small 16:9 image and a huge scope image. The image is wide, like it is in the theater.

Keep in mind the black bars are still there so you have to be able to deal with them, as in having a dark wall (possibly a dark ceiling) so they do not show up. The only way to get completely get rid of the black bars is to use an A-lens.

Hmmm....so there's a slight soap opera effect regardless

Not something I wanted to hear

With lens memory I believe you can do something in-between too, correct? Like if you had 2 separate screens, say a drop down 2.32 115" (45x105), and a drop down 16:9 100" (49x87), so not CIH.

Sorry if you already did this but do you have sharpness,enhanced detail and
noise reduction all at 0?

I purchased this one http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...5975&CatId=626 and I've been very pleased with it. Had no problems at all with this one fitting my X30.

My RS45 makes is more noisy then my previous RS25 (normal lamp mode). I have a feeling that something is 'wrong' with the fans or something.

Must be..I can't hear mine unless I put my ear next to one of the exhaust vents.

My X30 is silent, only when I change to high lamp mode can I hear it.

then something must be wrong with my X30. I can hear it very good from 3 meters away from it.

My X3 europeo normal lamp mode is a tomb, only hear something so high a ventilation meter.

Just wondering if your PJ might be running in 3D mode.
That causes the fan on my RS45 to rev up. In this setting or in high altitude/high mode are the only ones I can hear the fan, even if I am right next to the PJ.

One other thought, maybe the ventilation path into or out of the PJ is blocked, causing the unit to heat up. Or a clogged filter?

Make sure your not set to high altitude mode

No, it s not in high altitude mode, not in 3D mode and not in high lamp mode.

True, but the black bars are still there on the scope screen. You could actually do three screens. That is probably a little more advanced that what he is asking. Besides, I would have to take a serious look at a 4-way masking screen, before considering going the dual screen route. This is if you are starting from scratch. if you already have a 16:9 drop down screen and considering adding a 2.35, then that would be a pretty good route to go. I hate having a smaller scope image compared to when just watching HDTV.

First I have heard of this happening. Are you running the latest firmware?

I bet you any amount of money that your HDMI cable is NOT good enough.

After changing my HDMI cable to a monoprice 22awg cable...I've never had that problem again.

Trust me it's a bad HDMI cable...

good luck

This has happened to me a few times.
I have it connected to an amp, the pic would freeze but audio still fine so I knew it was projector. All I do is change the hdmi source on amp (eg sat to DVD and back again) and back to the original and it clears it. NO need to crash projector.
post #3390 of 4435
I have a decent hdmi cable as well although it is 12M and updated firmware in February.
But as I have stated, it's not a big deal, simply change the source and back.
Think it's happened 4 times in 160 hrs, I'll pay more attention to it, it only happens when changing source, so maybe on the ps3 and decided to watch a DVD. It has never happened during viewing, which makes me think its some sort of handshake issue?
