I was lucky and picked up an RS1 with a 119" Da-Lite Highpower with pro-trim for only $990! So far its a pretty nice piece of machinery. Hopefully I can upgrade in the future but so far so good!

If a pj has a D6500 setting out of the box, with accurate colors and the ability to obtain proper gamma and gray scale, I would agree that a Duo or VideoEQ Pro or Radiance would not be needed.

That is a great deal.

Yeah I hooked it all up last night and was impressed. the screen is a little big for only a 15ft basement. Kind of like sitting front row at the IMAX.

You could sell the screen and get something smaller and still be ahead. I think you won't, though. A lot of us like 1x width viewing distance.
post #8436 of 8732
Yeah I think its the perfect size anyway. The RS1 just cant quite fill the whole thing due to my basement size being limited.
post #8437 of 8732
Maybe I am just dumb but Im sure someone who owns the RS1 can give me an answer. I have the 119" screen and the projector is a little less then 15' away but I cant fill the whole screen. There is like an inch on top and bottom and two inches on the side. Am I just stupid or is that the best i can hope for at that distance?

According the projection calculator the HD1 (same as RS1?) can do about 151" diagonal from 15' throw with the zoom fully maxed. Therefore unless the RS1 is significantly different (or you are a long way under 15') you should be able to hit 119" diagonal or width whichever.

Thats what I was wondering. its very weird. I turned the lens as far as it would go but still have these stupid tiny spaces and its driving me bonkers.

Might be worth checking the menus incase you've selected a different aspect ratio of perhaps turned on masking (I have a HD350 so I don't know if the RS1 has this option). The other issue is that you're watching a 2.35:1 film, but I guess you'd know that it wouldn't fill the screen heightwise (should still fill it widthways).
post #8441 of 8732
ya the black bars on top and bottom I understand. Maybe the previous owner had it set up weird. Can I reset the unit back to default settings? I havent even had time to really play with the menu yet.

2.5% masking could be turned on. It blanks out or turns off 2.5% of the pixels on top, bottom, left and right.

Even so, his 119" that he can't even fill, even if width, is nowhere near 95% of the rated 151" diagonal.
post #8444 of 8732
I think I figured out the problem. It is actually my WDTV live hub thats messing it up. It was set to 95% rather then 100% for the screen mode. DOH!

I've tried a couple laptops now with no success. Maybe someone can help..

I bought a 25' RGB to component cable by "Impact Acoustics" and set the computer up to use the blue RGB port on the back. The projector is clearly seeing the signal because it says its out of range when I enable to port. I tried to change the Hz from 60, but the computer wont let me. I am selecting the correct res, 1920x1080. I've tried other resolutions as well.

Anyone know whats going on here? This should work, right? Is my cable too long? If this is the wrong way to display a computer on a rs1, can you tell me what I need to buy to make this work well? I want to be able to use the rs1 with a few different laptops, all with RGB video output ports..
post #8446 of 8732
In this case I believe your laptop needs to support exact television signal refresh rates. So, its actually 59.94Hz (interlaced) and 29.97Hz (progressive) assuming you're in North America. Sounds like you're video card doesn't support TV refresh rates (common for laptops I think.)

I use the HDMI interface on my Dell Studio multimedia laptop (Win7) quite successfully. I just select "digital television" mode and get a full 1920x1080p picture.

If it's the RS1u it doesn't support many PC video modes. I think only one and its alow res. Mode like 480p.

I've recently had my optical block replaced on my HD1/RS1 due to a red mist/tinge down the right hand side of the screen, which had pretty much always been there but I never got around to do anything about, its about 2 years 11 months old with over 1900 hours on the lamp.

What possible effect on performance could a change in optical block have?

My convergence seems slightly more uniform but I seem to be suffering from noticing more banding, noise and motion issues and some brightness in the corners on a dark screen and I don't seem to be able to dial in my greyscale as well as previously, (although with probably much less hours on the lamp) especially at the lower IRE's.

Could a change in optical block impact in any of these ways or I am I just imagining it?

Could a bulb aeging beyond a certain point cause any of these kind of issues?

Unheard in the past that running a projector thru a UPS is a bad idea but can't remember why... Still true? Just snagged a nice one and I'd like the chance to gracefully down my projector in case of power loss.

I run my RS-1 thru a UPS and I don't have any problems.

I have always had my RS2 on a UPS....

Same here. No problems. In fact, the power has gone off a couple of times over the last several years while the projector was running. UPS allowed me to shutdown.... SJ

Ok, thanks guys. I'll give it a whirl
post #8454 of 8732
this is my second time replacing the bulb and cant reset the lamp time. tried what the manual said to do,but same results!

It's press Exit - Enter - Hide and Down-Arrow. The trick they don't explain in the manual is you need to push and release Exit - Enter - Hide quickly with in about 1 second but hold the Down-Arrow for 4 seconds .
Also make sure you have fresh batteries in the remote


hope that helps
post #8456 of 8732
thanks,that worked.

I just picked up a HD1 in excellent condition for the Kids game room. I noticed I cant select many of the menu items like Aspect, and several others on the onscr een menu and the Aspect Button on the remote dosen't change anything display wise. Is it because the Blu-Ray dvd going thru the HDMI automaticly selects the proper Aspect Ratio?

It is probably explained somewhere just can't seem to find the info.

Thanks
Ed

Indeed, when connected with HDMI, aspect ratio is locked in 16:9 mode.

You need to select the proper ratio in the menu of the source (DVD/BD reader, game station,...).

Morning all,

I currently see two JVCs for sale one an RS1 and another the RS40. The RS40 is way under retail at the moment but as this will be our first projector and screen purchase ever, I'm wondering if the RS1 would suit us as it is 1/3 the price of the RS40 I have a line on. We don't have a screen yet and there is a 98% chance it will be an AT screen so this plays a part as well.

We don't currently have anything that sends 3D besides the 360 which is where 99% of our media content viewing is done (though we do have an A35 and BD player with hundreds of titles). We don't have high-end anything, current TV is Mits 65" DLP, AVR is SR605, soundbar is definitive tech SSA-50. The def tech is new so that isn't going anywhere so the thought if we went 40 would be another cheap onkyo with 1.4s and the RS40 + screen. But the price of the RS1 is so tempting and we wouldn't "need" to replace any of our current equipment but this will be going in the living room of our condo:
living room
example of light from hallway/kitchen
which can be VERY bright but with some light control to bring it to...I don't know...dim.
post #8460 of 8732
I still have the RS1u and love it. But if I were buying new I would consider the RS40. If you don't have the money an RS1 still rocks. Especially with a DVDO Duo or other processor that you can calibrate it with.

Used RS1 with old bulb will have a gray scale that is way off calibration too.

Ron
