Dunno when I get mine. JVC stopped shipping the projectors as soon as this HDMI problem came up. They are all going to be updated with the new fixed firmware before shipping out, so who knows? Hopefully soon.
Back to the X500/700 for a sec: So the 500 doesn't have dual irises? Does that mean, I take it, that in the case of the 500 you can either put the iris in "auto" and it will alter dynamically or "manual" in which you set the brightens with DI off?
In other words, the advantages of the 700's dual iris system is that it allows you to use one to set the upper limit of the image brightness, while still allowing the other iris to act in DI mode? Or does the dual iris system of the 700 offer any other advantages?
(If you can't set the brightness of the 500 while using the DI, that alone would make the 700 worth the extra I'm paying for it, since I really need to alter brightness as I alter my image sizes)
