But coming here and touting that this projector is only watchable on tiny screen, while there are many of us enjoying it on screen 120"+, is stupid and ridiculous.
So please go on watching your blazing image, if that is what you like.
I have not ever tried to tell you or anyone else to not watch a bright image if that is what you like - it is your personal choice/preference.
Just like mine is a less bright image in 100% light controlled black/dark theater - that is my choice/preference.
And please learn how to read. I was not touting anything, only describing my situation an preference (I stated plainly "to my eyes")
It is you who got all bent out of shape, because my preference did not agree with yours, and started attacking my views/preferences
I have just as much right to share my opinion here as you and anyone else.
And it is by reading all the opinions of all the other members, that allows one to decide for themselves, based on their own preferences, whether it be a super bright image or a less bright image


PLEASE show me one post where I have made the statement "the RS4810 is ONLY watchable on a small screen". rolleyes.gif

What I have said time and time again with you is that brightness is a VERY SUBJECTIVE topic and there is no right or wrong as far as what each individual considers "bright enough" in their room, with their screen and too their eyes.........period! On the contrary, with your disrespectful, degrading BB PLASMA IMAGE LOVER horse $hit label of well respected AVS members who happen to like an image that conforms closer to the SMPTE brightness standard, or.....GASP......even brighter, you are showing your ignorance. Enjoy what you want, but PLEASE spare the stupid labels.

Now having said that, what I have also said to you, and please take your own advice right now and LEARN HOW TO READ AS WE WOULD NOT STILL BE HAVING THIS CONVERSATION, is technically you DO have a dim image as you would be getting low single digit foot lamberts from what you have described as far as how you run your projector/screen and I would be willing to bet most would not be fully happy with the brightness you are getting. NOW once again, that does not mean you can not enjoy it and it does not mean it is subjectively dim as again that will depend on the individual. Is that clear because I don't know how to explain it to you any clearer.

Just an FYI by the way, my image is not what I would consider "blazingly bright". I have what I consider a comfortably bright calibrated image in a black pit room. I know what blazingly bright looks like as that is how I would describe watching 2d with my BenQ 7000 on my screen (with the iris fully open) in comparison to my 45. It is uncomfortable and NO, my 45 is not in that same category with the way I have it calibrated and setup.

Just spare the ridiculous BB plasma label BS Dionyz and of course share your experience as it is just as valuable as any and as you say, you have just as much right as anyone to share your thoughts. When you start throwing around that BB horse $hit though, I do have a problem with that as it is disrespectful to many well respected AVS members who happen to like an image that conforms closer to what most would consider acceptable.

Personally speaking, I think high brightness (maybe around 20 to 22 foot lamberts) is just as addicting as high contrast can be. Luckily for most people with modest sized screens, this JVC can give both. smile.gif
post #1623 of 1794
12-16ftL is no where near plasma brightness in any room. 2-4ftL is unwatchable for 99% of people and no one will even recommend it. Of course its perfectly fine for you to like whatever brightness that's best for you, its just you say the normal recommended brightness it too bright, as if its not normal

I'm just wondering if a few owners could do me a favor and check to see which firmware version is installed on your unit. If you go into the menu under Information it will list the firmware number there. I'm just curious if my unit is up to date. I do have an X55R. I'm not sure if that matters or if both the 4810 and X55R get the same firmware updates.

Thanks smile.gif

I thought you sold it? I will check mine later this afernoon and let you know. Mine is an X55R.

As flat panels go, generally speaking plasma is dimmer than LED/LCD and OLED. So maybe if you want to really disparage people you should call them LED LOVERS. tongue.gif
post #1627 of 1794

Just posted these 2 questions over there and if there is any info to be had from it, I will link it here for anyone interested.

I have fine tuned my settings to mpc high resolution, 35-20-20 & darbee on green 50. Its a good middle.

Yea, I have been wondering if I have latest firmware patch too. Can someone post the lasted, by the number. Thanks, eh.

Also if anyone knows why, my projector is pulsing/flashing the image. Its really noticeable when using the ps3 (which I use for Netflix & dvds/blurays) but I have seen it a little on directv satellite to. I have everything running threw my stereo (marantz) and not sure if that makes a difference... Its most noticeable on screen with all/mostly white as background.

Is it a bad bulb, hdmi, pas through the receiver, etc. I cant get rid of it... should I use hdmi2 port instead of hdmi1, etc. Its not the darbee/mpc because I tried it off & on and it still does it. Could it be a virus on ps3 (and how do you fix that, its not a computer...).

I would really appreciate a fix on this.

Thanks, eh.

I keep mine on Film, 30, 30, 0. I'm not currently using the Darbee. I watched the remastered Se7en Blu-ray tonight. It's a pretty dark movie. I kept thinking to myself these dark scenes really do look best on a JVC.

For reference I bought my unit as a refurb 2 months ago and it has firmware version 29.004 on it. Seeing how it's been back in the hands of JVC recently for refurbishment I'm assuming this is a fairly recent firmware.

Can someone point me in the direction of more affordable alternative 3D glasses? Isn't there a Samsung alternative that works well and is less expensive than the JVC glasses? I can't remember if there is a specific model I should be looking into.

Has anyone x55 and darbee user tried to simulate the darbee effect with Eshift options?
Do you think that darbee act differently than Eshift 2 and it's options?

Yes, the darbee acts differently than Eshift2. They are completely different things. Not only that, but no one has been able to simulate the darbee's effect with its lack of artifacts.

EDIT: That said, the Darbee looks WAY better when Eshift2 is engages, IMHO!

I can't believe I haven't tried a Darbee yet. I have never heard so much buzz over a relatively inexpensive component.

I can't believe you haven't either. It's a great little piece of equipment, and the price is right !

Im interested...anyone confirm this is a bulb issue? I heard it was and jvc replaced the bulb.
post #1636 of 1794
I did read somewhere, where some else had the same problem but on different projector, and they told him to put it on high lamp for 30 hrs then go back to low lamp and it fixed it...

Would like to know if there are bad bulbs so I can get a free replacement... Thanks, eh.

5- 1:33:1

on the first setting only I used the focus and did not use it for the next 4. As per JVC recommendation

Now when I switch back and forth, I need to refocus. I thought you are only to use focus in your first setting, no?

Yeah , someone else quoted the JVC Manual as well but I didn't see it in mine . Odd ?
Anyway , I've set all three parameters for each Lens Memory and saved it just like you tried .
The Focus is usually ok for each one . I still got "drift" over time for each Setting but I'm trying something new now .
After saving the first Lens position I reset the Lens to default THEN work from there to learn the next position ,etc .
I'm hoping this gives the system a starting point for all the counters to work from .
So far , two weeks without a tweak .

Just run your lamp on high for a while - should stop the flickering.

Has anyone paired a RS4810/X55R with a EluneVision (Reference) screen? Buying the RS4810 kinda broke the bank for me, so I have to go modest with the screen. EluneVision likes to claim they are just as good as a Stewart StudioTek at 1/3rd the cost.

Anyone knows a good calibrator in Bay Area?

By any chance, does anyone use the MonsterVision Max 3D glasses with the RS4810? If so, what is you delay settings? I'm struggling to make these glasses work ok for me… keep getting the feeling I'm cross-eyed no matter what I'm setting them at.

Yes, multiple times. There's definitely a "better setting" and a "worse setting".

Guys, do I have to get the PK-EM2 3D Transmitter to try out the 3D functionality of RS-46 ?

Also, are there are cheaper 3rd party 3D glasses which work with RS-46 ? ... Preferably something which also works with Optoma HD131Xe, since both can use RF for their 3D ?

EDIT: Sorry, I thought this was the RS-46 hangout ... Google's fault, not mine tongue.gif
post #1646 of 1794
you can use this kit on both the JVC and the Optoma:

http://www.amazon.com/EStar-America-ESG6100-RF-3D-Starter/dp/B00D39AUCI/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1385312802&sr=1-8&keywords=RF+3D+glasses

glasses are not that cheap though depending on your price range, the replacements are in the $50 range, I don't know of any inexpensive RF glasses that work with this transmitter.

Hi All,

I Just finished my theater a few weeks ago and am starting to get some use of my 4810 and have noticed on a few occasions when i press the standby button twice on the JVC remote to turn the pj off that it doesn't actually respond to the power off. If i try and power off from the back of the unit it also does not respond and i have to actually pull the power on the pj for it to power down. Has anyone else seen this and know a good way to resolve this or should i call JVC Support? Unfortunate part is that i am not sure how to repro this as its not a frequent event nor have i spent a lot of time in my basement either.

Thanks,
Brandon

Got my RS4810 today for a price that seemed too good to be true. Well it might be as it unfortunately seems defective. Cyan blue lines ran down the screen for the first 5 minutes, then went away so I thought it was a warm up issue. Then they returned after an hour and haven't gone away.

Examples:




I got the full 3 year warranty, so it's nothing to worry about, just puts a damper on my holiday weekend. mad.gif

I am about to pull the trigger on an X75, and I watched the X55 playing on this exact screen. Being in Canada, the manufacturer is about an hour away so that's where I was. He has that screen running on the X55, and has samples of pretty much all the big name other screens, we laid them all out and I'll be honest. It looked better than anything else put up against it. As a reference I was sitting 13 FT back. He also pulled in their AT screen as that's that I want and set it up over half the screen. I was VERY impressed. VERY little loss there even. Build quality was solid as well.

Samsung SSG-5100GB 3D Active Glasses work just fine with this projector/emitter. You can get them for less then $20 on Amazon.
