For a while now I've gone back and forth on the uniformity of my RS-45. At times it's seemed fine, at others it's annoyed me. I had an LCD a few years back that had pretty bad uniformity, and my RS-45 is certainly better than that. However, I have noticed when watching some black and white movies that the top 10-15% of the screen has a yellowish tint and the bottom 20-25% of the screen has a reddish tint. I used different sources to test uniformity; I tried calibrating it away; I tried repositioning my projector to minimize lens shift. None of these made much if any difference. I'm wondering what level of uniformity is considered acceptable, both by you guys and by (perhaps) JVC folk. I used the 100 IRE pattern located off the service menu to get the clearest idea of uniformity, and looking at it really makes me want to try to get a replacement. I've heard that uniformity is a bit of a crapshoot, and I'm hoping to roll the dice again and get a better score. Oh, metaphors. I've got to do something about this since I watch a fair number of black and white movies and I think that, if I do nothing, I'm going to end up watching them on my plasma (perfect uniformity). I'd honestly rather watch ANYTHING on my plasma than on this projector right now. It provides a great picture otherwise, and makes movies look miles more cinematic than anything I've seen before, but the uniformity is killing me.
