I am not sure how new these are, but has anyone tried them with the JVC RF dongle? Do they work? I bought only one pair of the JVC glasses (nice but expensive), but I would like to a couple of extras (cheaper) for the ocassional guest/s.

If you are looking for inexpensive and effecient, try the Samsung 4100 or 5100 glasses. They are on Amazon for less than $25 and sync up to the JVC dongle with no problem.

so if one profile seems soft to you, it just means you prefer a different combination of the 3 mpc controls. play around with them.

Also anyone that is getting e-shift for the first time... You must turn off e-shift while checking convergence and focus. E-shift up close looks very blurry, and you will think there is something wrong with your projector.



If those are the 3 different (types) adjustments in the mpc. When you have all 'modes' set at the default 50/50/50. Then go from each mode (film, high resolutions, hd, etc.) back and forth, I see the difference between each one... So does that mean, that even though there all set at 50/50/50, there actually at other numbers preset in each 'mode' (to begin with).

Then in each 'mode' you can adjust the 3 different types (enhance/contrast/smoothing) to your liking...

Does anyone have experimented settings that they think are the sweet spot (for them...). That I can try like as if it was another default. Example the 35/20/20 & what mode (that someone else had).

Thanks, eh.
Try Film mode 20 20 20

Cool thanks for the input. I will give them a shot.

I bought 5 sets of the Samsung 4100 glasses & they work great. They are light on the face & nose & for over glasses too. I'm not sure about the Samsung 5100 or what the differences from the 4100 are. Anyone else own the 5100?

,,,are these Samsung glasses working with the RS4810 RF dongle, or with the older IR emitters?

Finally got my RS4810U a little while back and I'm loving it ! Best picture that has ever been in my house .
Silly little question though , is there any way , from the Remote , to quickly bring up what the Displayed Signal is ? ie 1080p60 or 1080p24 ?
I know you can drill into the Menu a few steps and see it there but I had hoped for a shortcut .
Tried pressing the HDMI button but nothing came up .

Cheers ,

Scott...................smile.gif

New owner here, thanks to Craig and AVS! Can't wait to have it hooked up...
I hope it survives the trip back to Brazil!

I hadn't tried a DVD on my RS4810 yet so I put on "The Blue Max" today & I was shocked at how good it looked even on my 148" 2.35:1 screen. It looked better then it does on my 6 year old 46" Sony XBR LCD in my wife's craft room. cool.gif

Good to know. Some movies are still only available on DVD.

Exactly why I wanted to see how it looked! wink.gif

A good DVD up scaled using my Lumagen looks like a poor quality BD on my 9' wide screen.

I don't see a thread specific to the JVC X55R so I assume it's okay to post in the 4810 thread. If not, someone please point me in the right direction. I just received my X55R yesterday. Did not have a lot of time with it last night and it's just projecting onto a makeshift screen at the moment. I have never seen a brighter, more sharp picture than what I was seeing last night. I can't wait to get it ceiling mounted with my anamorphic lens.

There is another thread for the RS48/X55. However, these are the same exact projectors, RS48, RS4810, and X55. I don't know why there are two threads for the same projector

People are posting on both threads for both model numbers.

I've been so blown away by the picture quality using the lens memory zoom function that I'm not sure it's worth paying for an anamorphic lens. I love the idea of one but the cost for a decent lens is more then the cost of the projector! I wish that I could use one to see how much difference it really makes. wink.gif

I was wondering about a darbee darblet for my 4810.
How much difference would it make?

Yeah, it's a whole other debate regarding lens or no lens. I personally prefer a lens and until a few years ago I would never have expected to find an affordable one. You are correct that they are insanely expensive new and sometimes used even. I started with an older Prismasonic lens that I picked up for a few hundred dollars and it looked pretty darn good. I still wanted to step up to something like an ISCO or Panamorph but even used you are talking $2k and up. A few months ago I came across a smoking deal on a Panamorph UH480 with motorized sled and the mounting plate to fit this projector. It was a demo unit and in excellent shape. It was still a chunk of change but nowhere near what the projector cost, more like a third of the cost. I got lucky really and I had looked for a long time. A good lens can last you many years, through several projector upgrades so I figured it was a good investment. I don't have the lens setup with the projector yet but considering it's lightyears ahead of what I had before I'm expecting it will look nice.

I love having the Darbee in my system, it is a must have after I saw the benefits of it for as little as it costs. wink.gif

Who sells it in Canada?

I am planning to insatll the 55 on the ceiling. I have 8 feet ceiling.

My questions is how low can I project the picture. I want the bottom of the picture to be 28" off the ground. Is that possible?
post #1165 of 1794
What is your throw distance?

I have a similar setup, and it is at limit. I will take some measurements and post back.

Anyone have their 4810 at max zoom? Any concerns about PQ with max zoom?

I always use max throw. At first I didn't tho. I read how max zoom hurts the image. I was using dual screens, a SI Gamma 4K 1.1 gain that was 100in and a 120in HP 2.4 screen. I just use the HP screen for 3D. I was using a RS55, so I wanted to get the best contrast possible with a good unity screen. I kept the iris down to -11 and it looked great, contrast was around 40,000:1. I was happy. Until I found myself watching Star Wars Episode 1. I wanted to try out the 2D-3D, it didn't impress me at all, so I kept the HP screen down for a little. It was bright, so I put the lamp on low and closed the iris to -15. It was bigger, brighter, with better contrast at over 50,000:1. Just having 15ftL with 50K:1 contrast is really good, changed my mind on what people say. So, I sold my SI screen.

I had the RS48/X55 for a couple of months. I got 42k:1 with 15ftL with max zoom on the HP screen. Some will argue that less contrast on a unity screen will look better, but with my experience, thats not true. Even the Sony VPL-1000ES owners will let you know that the JVC will have better contrast, with the Sony being around 20K:1. I'm not saying the JVC is better but transitioning from dark scenes to bright scenes shows well on the JVC. Even when you use max zoom with the iris open, you will get over 24K:1 on the JVC, which is better than most.

The Sony has 20000:1 native, which is very close to what the JVCs have natively. Once you close down the iris on both machines it becomes a different story but then again that isn't native contrast. From what I've read the black level's on the Sony with the DI engaged are actually darker than the JVCs.

I have not installed yet but it can be from 12 feet to 18 feet

The top of the image can be at max around 14 inches below the center of the lens in inverted ceiling mount position. Use that number with your screen size and projector mount pole length to figure the bottom image height.
