Noticed the color temp green push on Loopers - and then I started looking at various movies including B&W and test patterns. I have Video Essentials, Digital V E, Avia and Disney WOW - they all show too much green.

I am thinking of Spectracal 5 control bundle with meter for calibration purposes.

But I thought these projectors were closer to being properly calibrated out of the box.

Unless you have a video processor with CMS controls I don't think Spectracal will really do you any good since the JVC you have does't have a CMS to work with.

I think I have that correct....

not an option. It s a freakin plane when running it in high lamp mode.

True, but this will enable him to accurately calibrate the greyscale and gamma which should mean that the colour gamut isn't too far off in Standard mode.

I don't know if using 'Natural' mode makes any difference over just setting up a 'User' preset, but the 6500/7000K setting (I found that 6500K measured too warm on mine), 2.2/2.3 custom gamma and Standard colour space wasn't that far out on mine. Of course calibration brought it completely upto scratch (using a Mini3D for CMS and autocal), but it wasn't that bad to start with (especially compared to my old HD350 before it was calibrated with the Lumgen).

I'm fine tuning my Harmony remote programming for the RS46. Though I could probably figure this out by trial and error, someone here may already have the answer to my question. Does anyone know how long the RS46 needs to be on before it will accept a remote command to change inputs? The Harmony standard delay must be too short because the RS46 remains on the last input even when the program calls for a change in input.

So far I am very impressed by the RS46. Even using zoom to fill a 2.35 screen this thing is a light cannon, with a very sharp image and great colors.

Has anyone tested the Monoprice bluetooth glasses with the JVC emitter?

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10909&cs_id=1090902&p_id=9460&seq=1&format=4#feedback

Only 2 reviews so far on their site, but first one says not working with Panasonic plasma.

Thanks all!

Nope, mine looks really sharp and crisp.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results."

Seriously, you have got to let this go. You've had the same issue on two projectors. It's completely invisible from a normal viewing distance and on normal content. JVC themselves told you that they can't guarantee you a projector without this "issue." Other people have reported the same issue on the same projector, higher-tier projectors, and prior-year projectors. You're clogging up this thread with this nonsense. And now you're actually going to buy yet another X35 thinking it won't have this streaking...which, incidentally, you can't see without your nose on the screen? Just wow. JVC was smart to wash their hands of you. Some customers aren't worth the trouble.

Where's Mark Haflich when you need him?

Good. He's crazy for even asking you if you have the streaking. Your image can look extremely sharp and crisp and still have streaking. It's a simple lens anomaly that you can't see without your nose pressed to the screen. A total non-issue.

My 46 has had trouble responding to the power on to the remote or projector. I've had to unplug it to power on. No problem powering off. Has happened 5 times now. Very annoying.

I've not noticed this issue with mine. I use a Harmony Touch and I haven't had an issue with power on/off.

Last night I was going to sit down and watch a flick and my X35 exhibited this problem. I used my Harmony 900 remote to power on everything and the projector went to the green on led. He weird thing is I got no image but yet the very bottom of the screen showed about 2 inches of the focus pattern briefly but then went away and I could not get any response from even the JVC remote. I couldn't bring up the menu or anything. I eventually had to unplug it and then today it fired up no problem.

I have make arrangements for the new 3d update so I will be letting my JVC Canada service contact know about this issue before I send it away.

Hello.

My X30 with the lastest firmware (29.058) had this problem (displaying of 2 inches of the focus pattern briefly). Sometimes I had to wait for a couple of minutes before to be able to use the original remote. With RS232 the commands were effective immediately and it's why I decided to command it only through RS232 (NEVO remote with nevo connect),

My new X35 has the same behaviour (displaying of 2 inches of the focus pattern briefly)(firmware 29.001) but I command it only by RS232 so I can't tell you if the remote control works well when the problem occurs (it seems that it doesn't according to your report).

But when I owned the X30, I found a method to avoid displaying of 2 inches of the focus pattern. If I didn't use the remote control just after a resolution changing (while about 10s) then I was able to command the X30 without any problem.

I think that JVC is not aware and I suppose that a new firmware might fix this.

Regards

Mine was working just fine but all of he sudden this weekend it started the behavior and it would not respond to even the JVC remote. No matter how long I waited nothing would come on screen. I have started the arrangements for the new 3d switcher update but I will let them know about this startup issue before I send it away.

Just received my JVC as well and got it set up last night.......convergence is great, contrast is outstanding.....my wife asked me if it was supposed to look like that! So far I'm impressed but do have one question regarding the sharpness of the unit. Using the Seymour AT screen, throw distance is roughly about 15 feet, everything is aligned properly etc. I'm a little concerned about the sharpness of the unit.......I'm coming from an old Epson 1080 on its last leg and while the colors, contrast, etc are light years ahead, the sharpness doesn't seem to be there. When I use the focus, I really can't get the text to focus as as sharply as I would have expected (my sharpness control is at the zero setting). I went into the service menu to take a look at the convergence patterns and the red/blue are spot on yet the green (along with the green grid in the focus menu) seems to be fairly fuzzy throughout the majority of the screen (it does seem to be better toward the top however) I've seen many screen shots of folks with JVCs, including some shots with text and mine doesn't seem to be close to as sharp as some of the pics I've seen. Am I missing anything in the menu that would help this or could I possibly have a poorly focused unit? Since I haven't had much experience with projectors in the last 6 years, I'm not sure if I'm expecting too much. I did really expect it to be sharper than a 6 year old Epson with an old bulb. Anyone have any thoughts?????
post #410 of 2085
Has anyone tried the Monstervision 3D glasses with this projector? I'm very tempted to go that route, much cheaper than JVC glasses.
post #411 of 2085
I'm not sure what to search for here; however I wondered if anyone had video or comments on how long it takes to change from 2.35 to 16:9 and vice versa. Does it still just record your lens movements and 'replay' them?
post #412 of 2085
Note sure between 16:9 and 2.35:1 but I use the lens memory to change between using my A lens for 2.35:1 and have to zoom slightly for non lens 1.85:1 content and it takes maybe 15-20 seconds, but I'll time it next time it's on and I'll set up a zoomed 2.35:1 and time that change too.

I doubt it would do that. Since the starting point of the lens could be anywhere, simply replaying your lens movements would lead to unpredictable and non-repeatable final lens positions.
post #414 of 2085
Well, my 1 chip 720p Samsung 710 dies last weekend, and although i was nearly ready to order an Acer 9500 I today sprang for the RS46 from AV Science. Yeah! I have a nice mancave HT so I'm sure i will be able to take full advantage of its great 2D capabilities (I am immune to 3D somehow; slight lazy eye and I guess 5% of us suffer from no ability to discern 3D well enough). I am an avid audiophile and heeded my own audio advice to evaluate in one's own system! So.....AV Science has their 4 lamp hour eval time, and I'd like to be able to set this up and make any rough setting changes to make sure I like it within that timeframe. I have printed off Kelvin1965S's nice setting comments from about a month ago (12/14 post) but was wondering if there is any other detailed setup tips or settings document out there. Thanks
Ted
post #415 of 2085
Congratulations on your purchase Ted_B. smile.gif Just try those settings that you've already printed off and then wait until you have some hours on the lamp and calibrate properly: There are no magic settings you can find on the web: even mine may be off for your example and room, so they are just a starting point. I found that 6500K measured too warm so 7000K would have been a better first 'guess' but then I calibrated using a custom colour temp anyway.
post #416 of 2085
Thanks. Will do. UPS email says it will be here Monday. smile.gif

I have a telescopic Chief pole for my ceiling mount. Stupid question but the manual is very vague here: where is the perfect spot where no vertical lens shift is required on an inverted ceiling mounted RS46 (i.e lined up with top of screen or what I would expect..i.e. center of screen)? And will any level of vertical shift hurt me theoretically (other than reduce horiz shift min-max, which I shouldn't need anyway). ? Thanks
post #417 of 2085
Well cue some people saying that you shouldn't use any lens shift at all, but unless you're at a very short throw I honestly don't think it's as critical as some seem to make out. wink.gif I think it's generally agreed not to use horizontal shift but if it's level with the top of the screen and the right way up like mine it is still as sharp as when dead centre as far as I can tell (long throw setup though). If it's inverted I don't know if this would result in more or less shift than I have, my feeling is probably less, so at least the nay sayers should be happy. smile.gif

Try adjusting the convergence controls in the menu by a full pixel for BOTH RED and BLUE to better line up to green.
Otherwise, exchange the projector for a better sample if it is bothering you, because it is possible for an Epson to be sharper than a JVC (but it is rare). I have seen lots of Epsons (more than 10) of varying makes and models, and out of all of those I have only seen 2 with really near-perfect convergence, one of them was actually pretty much perfect (only 1/4 pixel off total), but that is as RARE as rain in the desert.

On average, the JVC is sharper than the Epson, but also do not be shy on using the sharpening controls on the JVC, they are there for a reason and do not totally kill the image (especially for HTPC).
post #419 of 2085
Thanks. I only say "inverted" meaning ceiling mount (feet up in the air). My throw is 17 ft to a 110" Stewart Studiotek 130..so yes, long throw. Thanks.
post #420 of 2085
I'm sure you'll be fine Ted: I'm at just over 100" diagonal 16:9 and 112" wide 2.35:1 (with A Lens) from19' throw.
