When it gets dirty. (How's that for another vague reply?) wink.gif

How often really depends. Everyone has different levels of dust in the house that'll clog things up. I pulled mine on my RS56 after 100 hrs and there was absolutely nothing on it, not even a slight film of dust. So for me, it's not very often.

So I'd suggest keeping an eye on it and cleaning it as required.

The same way you'd clean your furnace filter - it'll vary like crazy from one person the next depending on living conditions, usage, pets, etc.

Maybe check it quarterly, unless you chain smoke and have 6 cats ! eek.gif

Anybody else get a 4810 lately?

I'm on the cusp of buying either a 4810 or the RS 46. Still trying to decide between the two.

IMO the 4810 is the sweet spot of JVC's line this year, when it comes to price vs features. Pretty hard to beat.

I briefly had the RS46 but upgraded to the RS4810. To me, the RS4810's added features (built-in CMS, e-shift2, multi-point fine zone convergence, and additional QA and warranty) were well worth the price difference.

Thanks for the input, I guess I'm leaning toward the 4810!

Another very happy 4810 owner here. Thanx to Craig

Just got my 4810 installed with an anamorphic lens, very happy. Should be happier once I figure out how to calibrate with Lumagen and Calman.....

Nice looking setup there !

Very cool set-up you have there. I just ordered a JVC 4810 so I'm very excited. Just snapped to the fact that there is a dedicated thread for the RS4810 compared to the RS48 & 55. Do using an anamorphic lens change the throw distance calculations at all?

It does , I basically used the Elite home theater calculator for my planning and it turned out well. At the time I was going with a JVC RS45 but it translated with the 4810 well. I had just enough clearance in the back from the plans I made.

Thanks. I'm going to be using the lens memory function for now but I will have to look into seeing if I can use an anamorphic lens with my set up down the road.

I am a new member of the 4810 owner's club. I am in the process of deciding on where to hang it relative to seating. I have narrowed it down to two options. First, directly above the first row of seating which is about 12 ft from the 106" 2.35 screen. The second option is behind the second row which is about 19 ft. Using the the online JVC lense calculator they give me a range of 11 - 22.5 ft, so both are in the range. My concern for the first option is noise and visually annoying the second row which on a 10" riser. My concern with the second option is a loss in brightness. Any thoughts and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If it's not in the way of the line of sight for the back row it will be brighter the closer it is. That being said it's not as big as my 148" 2.35 screen so I think you will be okay either way. I will be mounting mine directly above my back row of seats 17' from my screen. I also have a 10" riser but I'm not too worried since the JVC is supposed to be pretty quiet.

And look what arrived today for me! I can't wait to get it hooked up!

Got the 4810 from AVS and Mike Garrett! The Eshift2 provides quite a picture. Not so much sharper, though sharpness is great, but smoother and easy on the eyes. Detail is more pronounced without noise. I think the extra pixels give me the best picture I've gotten from JVC yet. If you don't have a Darblet and want a great projector at a bargin price, give AVS a call. I don't know how many 4810s they have left! Super Value!

I am about to pull the trigger... got a quote from Mike and will probably order it tomorrow. Question: Have you noticed anything at all using the Darblet with the 4810? I wonder how the eshift2 affect the processing of the Darblet.

And if you do have a Darblet, eShift really shows it off!

Keep in mind you get a better cr in the back position, so you get something back for the loss of brightness. I have my RS20 all the way back in a projection booth (for noise, lights and hiding equipment) and still get a measured 24k cr with wide open iris.

click on the 3rd link in my signature for a close up look at e-shift + the darbee. They are a good combination.

Thanks for the input. I think I'm going to go with closer option to keep brightness as high as possible for 3d. If worse comes to worse, I'll just move it back if I need to!

My 4810 is mounted at 18' from a 103" screen and is still plenty bright on low lamp -6 iris setting after >100 hours. These new ones are brighter than my old HD750 was.

Sorry, I'm new to a lot of this terminology, what does cr refer to?

For isisyodan;
The Darblet works great with the 4810. Better with, than without, the eShift. Good luck with it!
post #1078 of 1794
Question for people who care about 3D. Do the G5 Universal rechargable 3D glasses work with the 4810?
post #1079 of 1794
Got my RS4810 mounted today! biggrin.gif

post #1080 of 1794
Looks great! Mine is up as well. I went for behind the back row(18' or so) in the end. Now I'm just waiting for my Studiotek 130 G3 to arrive! Just hung up my Vandersteen VSMs as well. Hopefully the screen will arrive in the next week or two and I can finish moving the rest of the equipment into the theater.
