RonF, sounds good so far. It looks like you'll get to 500 hours before me. I'd love to hear about the readings then, fingers crossed.
I thought that when I first set up my X35 as I just put in settings that I thought would be about right (mainly Standard colour space and 6500K, 2.3 gamma). Turned out it wasn't bad, but a little too warm, so after calibration mine ended up brighter
than this initial setting (94 Lux to about 102 Lux). The gamma was flatter too (thanks to my Lumagen, but a Pro should be able to set up the JVC's internal gamma just as well, if taking a bit more time) so the image has more depth in bright scenes and slightly better shadow detail too. It wasn't such a massive change as calibrating my old HD350 plus Lumagen (due to the very oversaturated colour gamut) but worthwhile and certainly an improvement...I'm sure you'll feel the same.

I'm at nearly 90 hours now and my reading has started to settle the last couple of viewings. Like you I measure after it's been on a while and I've now dropped 2 Lux from 102 to 100 now. It seems to be a consistent reading (bar the lower reading during the first 30-60 minutes of perhaps 92-95 Lux). I can live with this sort of dimming as I'm running low lamp at -15 for 16:9 and -9 for 2.35:1 so have plenty in hand.
