Official JVC DILA-X500R / RS49U / RS4910U Owners Thread

Just got my HTPC finished, ironed out a few niggles and finally got it hooked up to the Jvc X500. Really pleased with how it turned out......I just need to start filling it with movies now. Here's a video of it in action.....

I'm going to try 3D on my X500R for the first time. Any advice on settings? I'm using the Xpand Mitsubishi glasses and emitter along with my new Oppo 103D BR player. I run my 500 in low lamp mode, do I obviously need to change that to high. Any other suggestions besides doing that and letting the PJ warm up fully before watching a movie?

Hello there,


I hear that the 3d on this JVC is worse than on a sony Hw55es..
Did somebody come from a sony Hw55es?


I am thinking to upgrade my Sony Hw55es..

I have the same setup and I'm relatively happy with the results. It will depend on your screen and how much polarization it retains since the Mitsubishi glasses have different polarization than the JVC. With my Stewart Grayhawk screen I can tell that I'm losing some brightness but it's still quite watchable. The JVC will automatically switch to high lamp for 3D so you should be good to go without changing any settings.

I sent you details on a good baseline for 3D mode. let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Zombie10k,

Would you please send me those baseline details as well? I'll be trying out 3d with my 4910 Oppo 103D and Stewart 150 AT screen before long. Are the JVC glasses and emitter recommended for best match with this pj?

thanks,
Mark H

you didn't waste your money...you just haven't spent enough yet.

How do you calculate the maximum vertical lens shift distance from the lens center(4910) to the top of the projector screen?

Is there any downside to using the maximum vertical shift of the PJ?

I'm thinking of lowering my screen significantly but don't want to lower the projector from the ceiling any more than is necessary.

Watched our first 3D movie (Frozen) tonight after changing a couple settings and putting the lamp in high mode. (Thanks Jason!) After letting the X500R warm up about 30 minutes, we started the movie. We're using the Mitsubishi Xpand EX105BT glasses/emitter sets and a new Oppo 103D Bluray player. Honestly, other than being slightly less bright than I would like, it was quite satisfactory. No ghosting, flicker, or cross-talk at any time. It would probably be a bit brighter with the JVC glasses, but considering I bought 8 of these Xpand sets for less than just 1 pair of JVC glasses I'll live with it. (Plus you'll pay another $100 for the JVC emitter) If you're only going to use 3D occasionaly like us, I can't see there being a better projector choice than the JVC's at this time. (Unless your budget allows spending way more)

Hello there,

How big is your screen?
And is your room total dark?

Best regards..

Got the basic setup done and the wife and kids were blown away, lol. Me too actually. Looks great and it's almost comical when the screen goes up and the 60" plasma is back there. 40" larger and nearly 2 foot closer to the seating positions makes for a much more impressive screen size.
Glad you are liking it! After going through a significant amount of my library over since getting the 4910, I have to say it is the best picture I have seen.

Since the screen is 1.2 gain you might be able to get away with 3D with the 500 on high mode especially if the lamp in fairly new. I have a 4910 which is similar and 3D should be bright enough in a light controlled room for most films.

Yeah, the only thing I'm "slightly" disappointed with are the black levels. But that's due to several factors:
  1. My plasma reference is a Pioneer KRP-600M and aside from the new OLED's is about the best blacks you'll see
  2. My room has white ceilings and lighter color walls
  3. My screen is an Elite MaxWhite 1.1 gain and I don't think that is going to bring out the best blacks possible in my environment
  4. It's not calibrated

But aside from that, the picture is amazing

Hm, yea my black levels with dark walls/ceilings and an AT screen are phenomenal. Comparing any PJ to a Kuro is going to yield bad results tho....

Agree. I went the entire room covered in velvet route. The results with my X500 are world class. These PJs need dark surfaces, the less reflective the better.

Listening with Focal Elex headphones, Topping DSD Dac, SENCUN-audio tube preamp with tone control and Little Dot hybrid tube amp with GE tubes.

Watching in a room ensconced in velvet.

True. But I see the potential for a much better picture (black level wise) than I have now.

I think Seegs or Mike have a guideline to get you relatively dialed in that they can email you. Holler at one of them via PM and they will shoot it to you

I would have to disagree with this. Having a Tcp60vt60 which has better black levels than the kuro, I must say that the 4910 produces very close to, if not same black level. Of course I have it set up in a room that is all blacked out. The Avatar outer space scene looks pretty identical when it comes to blacks.

Maybe Seegs can chime in as I seem to recall him with actual numbers, but I believe the JVC will exceed the Kuro for blacks in the right room (i.e, black walls, black carpet, etc.). The blacks on my JVC RS4810 seem a bit better than I recall with my former Panasonic VT60 that had blacks very close to the Kuro, but my room is a complete black pit.

I'm not interested in buying from them. A colleague of mine purchased one from them, and when he told me about them, I googled them. I noticed that they were selling JVC online. I just thought there were no authorized online dealers for JVC.
