My Panasonic is upconverting to 1080p but any thoughts on trying to output in native DVD res (480p) and letting the JVC upconvert? Does it have that capability?

You have a nice projector. It's time to toss the DVD's & upgrade to Blu-ray...

I have 250 movies on DVD. Does replacing those count as a viable Kickstarter or Indigogo campaign? If not, the Magic 8 Ball says "Outlook not so good"

Hello and thanks for this thread.

I think that you have certainly switched the value between calibrated and uncalibrated.

You're welcome.

But I don't think I switched these values. This is the original reported info from Kraine (calibrated) and Zombie10k (uncalibrated).

Of course, there could be sample/lamp variation, so I will update post #1 with Zombie10k's calibrated #s when they're done.

Ok, I think that I have understood.

"Calibrated" means this is a user mode and it was calibrated

"uncalibrated natural" means this is the profil natural (factory) without any calibration

Am I right ?

Interesting. Normally the calibrated PJ has less lumens.

I have same firmware.
post #221 of 2070
For those that have purchased the RS46, there is a software update. Please call me for details.

Hi Mike,

Just called JVC after talking with you. Spoke to "Rafael" (not 100% of the name, could barely understand him). He had no information on an update (put me on hold for a long while to check). He also said that if I needed to send the projector in it would be at my expense. I'll try again tomorrow, hopefully will talk to someone more helpful.mad.gif

Is the update for 3D only?
post #224 of 2070
I contacted JVC here: http://secure.jvc.com/consumer/forms/contactsupport.jsp

Shouldn't they be bending over backwards for us? Maybe throw in an emitter and a few pair of glasses...

Is it true that it's not a do-it-yourself software patch?

Here was their reply:

I understand you are inquiring about the updating the firmware of your DLA-RS46 projector. The update for this model can only be performed through our authorized service center. Please send the unit to our authorized service center to install the update. Click the ink below and enter the information being requested to locate for an authorized service center.

I'll settle for a free replacement lamp for my trouble. wink.gif

Does anyone know where I can find the ip codes for accessing the lens memory functions via irule?

I can't even watch DVD's anymore ( except Team America - World Police - no Blu Ray yet ). It's too painful to watch. It's like hitching mules up to pull your Maserati - a step backwards! eek.gif

UPDATE: The Monoprice HDMI male-to-female 90 degree port saver does not work with this JVC projector. It's not long enough to clear the JVC lip. I'd say it's about 1/16" or 1/8" too short.

Let me see if I can straighten this out.

Craig, you would be surprised what a Lumagen can do with a DVD. smile.gif

I realize that with it ceiling mounted I don't need to worry about the lip after all. But all the same, thanks so much for getting back to me on that.

In my opinion something should be done especially since these are your early customers. Lamp, glasses, extend warranty of some sort. Or the option to return the unit for full refund.
post #235 of 2070
Well they are doing something: They are fixing the issue that you have by a firmware update. I don't see why they should have to give away £300 worth of extras as well.

Sorry, but compensation culture is one of my pet hates. It's the same mentality that has pushed up car insurance to stupid levels.

At a minimum they should sent new units. Then have customers return old unit. There have been reports of slow JVC service times. This is what Epson promotes and practices for there 6010/6020 models. How long will we be without a projector. Weeks...months?

This is my thought as well. Has there been any official word on what this patch covers?
post #239 of 2070
I think I might just return my unit instead of dealing with the headache. Agree a new unit should be shipped to us then we return ours.
post #240 of 2070
Do you guys know what is the firmware update for? What possible issues is it fixing?

Also, do you guys use your projector in low or high lamp? I know this is a very specific question but I'm curious smile.gif
