For the rs45 specifically, are there any recommended settings? I've read through a bunch of reviews and posts here but there's alot of different information.
I'm using madvr and a nvidia gpu. The nvidia settings are 1080p60, ycbcr444 8bit(12 bit is available).
Madvr is set to 0-255, frame blending(smooth motion), and I'd been using supersampling with my w1070, I tried 23p and turning supersampling off but 23p was still jumpy and frame blending with supersampling off was too soft. If I set the rs45s sharpening to 0 it's too soft, but anything higher than 5 is artificial looking, and I have detail enhance at 10-15.
-So far though I feel the w1070 is sharper, maybe just due to the pixel response? and also the better pixel fill of the jvc? maybe even the jvc bulbs age
I have hdmi set to superwhite, contrast/brightness/tint at 0, color at 5, color temp at 6000 or 6500(ive done some adjusting with the gains and offsets and got red looking nice and red and brought up some low level detail, red gain -4, blu gain -7, +3 red/blue offsets), and custom gamma at 2.2 or 2.4.
-also I feel the w1070 had more saturated colors, maybe it wasnt accurate though, also could be the jvcs bulb age
The current bulb has 1700 hours and the seller reported 2500hours usual life so Ive got a new bulb otw from pureland supply.
I got the projector because I wanted some experience with jvc projectors before purchasing a 4k hdr projector, only having the w1070 and some budget va 4k tvs(2018 tcl and samsung) for comparison. Currently having trouble deciding between the jvc, sony, theo z65, and ht9060. I really like the dlp imagers but I need to spend some time with something with good contrast.
Screen is an XY Screen Black Crystal 0.8 gain, a dark grey with a gain layer. Its a small room 11.5' by 14.5', with a small throw, 9'4". Dark paint, white ceiling, black fabric a couple feet out on the ceiling. Black fabric shades on either side of the screen with lamps on the other side of the shades so I can raise the light level of the room without direct light hitting the screen, real nice for tv shows, anime, youtube. With the lights out the screen can get very close to the black of the masking even with a bright high apl scene. The black level setting seems to help maintain low level detail with some ambient light.
Contrast and blacks between the projectors is no comparison of course, and the lcos 2.5ms black to white response, while not as impressive as dlp, is certainly better than the 8-15ms of the va tvs/monitors I have. Motion is still good I guess is what Im trying to say xD After I get some hours on the new bulb Ill pick up a meter and try to calibrate it.
