Did you assign the IP addresses manually for both the PC and the projector? Also, they have to be on the same subnet, differing only in the last group of digits.

I can't remember if I set them manually. They do differ only in the last group of digits. If I were to set them manually, how would I go about doing that (i can re-do that step in case that is were I screwed up)?

I had a similar problem of not being able to connect to my X590R from my laptop and JVC software. Turns out it was my Control4 system that was "locking" the JVC software out and not allowing another connection. I had to go into the JVC network menu and turn off the Control4 option temporarily. Then my laptop connected right away and I was able to use the calibration software without any issues.

Maybe something similar in your case?

If you look at the instructions for Autocal v9 it gives more details than v6.

I'm trying out an anamorphic lens tomorrow. It does not have color correction, so, if the color is off, I will use my RS500 to correct the color. The RS500 has 2 memory settings for color correction just for this reason. Nice!

Does anyone know how to get the memory to switch automatically when I switch between anamorphic and no lens? I plan to slide it in to use for 2.4 movies and out for non scope movies.

I would love to hear from anyone. If not automatable, I will have to set up a string of commands on the Harmony which will be clunky.

Hi, this is a guaranteed way to get a PC connected to the JVC



Direct connection with Windows 10 PC - single ethernet cable from laptop plugged directly into the JVC

lower right hand corner, right click the network icon



Click 'Open Network & Internet settings'



left hand side, Click on 'Ethernet' - right hand side, click 'Change Adapter Options'




Right click on the Ethernet connection and click 'properties'




Double click on 'Internet Protocol Version 4', set the IP info in the following screenshot - click 'ok', and 'ok' again on previous screen.



On the JVC, set the following IP address:



In the JVC Autocal software, set the following IP address and click 'Check' to verify the connection is ok.

Still it’s costing me C$1,200 after the last upgrade from 790 to NX7. (This is because I’m not a store/dealer, I just write and do calibrations)

That's it? $1200 to go from a 790 to N7? WOW...Cost me far more than that to go from my x950 to an N7...Dealer cost on the N7 must be I'm guessing somewhere around $7k (40 points margin i'm guessing) so you must have gotten out of your 790 ok...

I sold my 790 at a very good price. Last year I was so busy I only had less than 350 hours and it was only 8 months old. Plus when I sold it I also give a free calibration to that person. But yeah, I got lucky that the person actually chose the 790 because of the much better blacks (he A/B my 790 with my NX7 in my HT.)

In my triple black velvet batcave, the blacks are "ok" on my N7 compared to my x950...im sure a calibrators eye like yours sees a big difference with an A/B test but we don't watch movies that way...Just like I cant compare my Elunevision screen to a Stewart screen...The screen looks "fine" to me but I can't A/B test it...I watched Mortal Engines last night on my N7 and man o man, stunning jaw dropping clarity and color gamut...Do u ever make it to Nova Scotia?

I was there doing a calibration tour 2 years ago (12 people). If there are enough people for me to fly there (or the client pays just like my clients several months ago in Munich and Holland, and the upcoming one in Florida), then I’ll go again. I literally do this worldwide (well, never had client in Africa).

Typically the estimated amount is roughly 4500. When the lamp reaches at about 80% the message will appear for you to replace it. This is normal."

3400 is 80% of 4250 hours and I think I'll be fine going to 3800-4000 hours before replacement. I might just replace sooner and use the original as a spare. Typically when I use my projector, it's on for 6+ hours as I don't do short sessions and do not use it like a TV. I'll usually sit down and watch through a bunch of TV show episodes or a handful of movies.

I'm trying to stretch my lamp life because I want the replacement lamp to last until my next projector, so every hour I get out of my current lamp is a 'free' hour. Also, it seems like this 80% thing from JVC is kinda arbitrary, so I'm not sure I'm actually risking anything and I know my on/off cycle count is 'relatively' low for the amount of hours on the projector because of the usage pattern.
Greetings Dreamliner.

At long last my RS600 is also displaying "Lamp Replacement" (started a few days ago). I thought that I had better go ahead and put in the spare lamp I bought a while back, but while searching the Owner's Thread for info on the lamp, I have run across your post. I just checked the lamp hours and, sure enough, it says: 3416H. So, 3400 seems to be a special number.

My original reason for searching for info on the lamp was to discover what condition(s) gives rise to the "Lamp Replacement" message. So, it is strictly based on hours, right? The image my projector throws still looks great, and bright enough, so I, too, would not want to prematurely replace the lamp (and for the same reasons as you - I want my next lamp to carry me forward to my next projector in a couple of years... Also, I use my projector as you describe: Lengthy sessions, not a lot of ONs and OFFs)

So... I'm curious where you are with your lamp replacement? Still milking the original lamp? Or preemptive replacement? (I tried to search through your posts, but there's so many that I gave up and decided to just ask you directly ;-)

Thanks.

I'm 100% certain it is an automatic message at 3400 hours. I just passed 4000 hours on the original lamp and I honestly don't have any brightness complaints at all. I actually bought a replacement lamp only from Dominic (link) and I'm going to put that in soon I think. My only actual concern would be a destructive lamp explosion. If I knew I could simply run the projector until the lamp simply burnt out, I would.

I also finally figured out how to use my AEMC CA813 light meter and took measurements of my lamp at 4000 hours (RS400, 108" 1.78:1 measured, 136" 2.35:1 screen):

Low Lamp
250 lux
23.23 ftL
846 Lumens
79.58 nits

High Lamp
342 lux
31.78 ftL
1157 Lumens
108.86 nits

Very helpful. And, yes, I was thinking the same thing about explosive failure and preemptive replacement.

And, yes, I also got one of those spare lamps from Dominic, so we're really on the same page here.

I may even follow your example and take a reading of my lamp...

Anyway, I think that I'm caught up now. Mainly I wanted to know the significance of the "Lamp Replacement" message, and whether the projector might be giving that warning because of some underlying condition about the state of the lamp that it was sensing. But you have confirmed that, no, it is strictly a warning based on the Hours on the Lamp.

Thanks a lot!

- s.west

p.s. While doing some of my searching I came across a number of very helpful guides that you have posted in the last couple of years. I have bookmarked them. Thanks also for those!

I too am on the original lamp on an almost 3 year old RS500. I've got under 2,000 hours on it. I wonder how you guys put so many hours on it. We watch it every night plus Sunday neighborhood Movie Nights.

I'm amazed at how stable the lamps is. Still plenty bright and I just touched up calibration after 6 months for showing Biggest Little Farm this last Sunday. 21 pt greyscale was still within 2 dE as was the color checker and luminance and saturation ramps. I tidied it up again to .5 dE just because. Once the greyscale was back, the colors tightened up to less than 1 dE without having to run a cube.

I use my projector for everything: movies, TV, games. I have another TV but I haven’t used it in over a year.

I also watch too much I’m sure, before I got “into movies” I watched less than 5 hours a week. I probably need to taper back.

The reason I'm really surprised is that almost every... single... night... my wife asks, "Wanna watch something?" She loves it! So I thought I watched a lot. Guess not...

Looks great and the best I've seen HDR. As you can see on the chart, no loss of detail in the low end and full native on/off contrast, unlike when using Dark Gamma above +2. Unfortunaltely this seems to be the only way to get a near perfect PQ Gamma on the JVCs.

A few things:

1) You need another meter/software to be able to do real time changes on the custom gamma curve. You change a stim value and you read using another software (I used Calman and my discus). Otherwise it's not practicle. It takes a few seconds for the change to upload, so make sure you wait until it's done before running a measurement after a change
2) If you run a JVC autocal before, it makes things much faster/simpler as you only have to worry about white gamma, the RGB balance is good (I didn't touch anything on the RGB curves)
3) I went bottom to top, and I ran a few full reads regularly. You need to lower the stim before 50% and to raise it after 50% (it's an S shape).
4) There is no roll-off in that curve: I map 1:1 from 0-200nits actual (0-1200nits on the chart), so from 0-80%, then I clip at 80% and above (content above 1200nits is clipped). Some might prefer more of a roll-off.

I tried with The Shallows, it looked great and I tried with Point Break, which is mastered to 4000nits and according to metadata has content going quite high above 1200nits, I couldn't see any obvious clipping and the picture wasn't dark in any way.

So as far as I can see, clipping content around 1200nits (JVC Contrast set to zero and bright gamma set to +2) looks fine with all titles, as expected. If you find a title for which it doesn't look good, please let us know.

This calibration is only good for my own setup (200nits peak in high lamp, iris fully open) as unfortunately it's not possible to adjust the gamma settings with a custom curve, but if some with a similar setup want to try it, let me know and I'll post the file. People with a larger screen will probably find it too dim, but as it's not possible to raise picture tone with a custom gamma, there isn't much we can do about that.
I have a x590r which doesnt have a gamma d but instead use st.2084....but i find that too dark. I was looking into doing a custom gamma, on calman which spread sheet and setting are you using...is there a way you can put a complete guide on how to do that?

Thanks.

I just checked the lamp hours and, sure enough, it says: 3416H. So, 3400 seems to be a special number.

My original reason for searching for info on the lamp was to discover what condition(s) gives rise to the "Lamp Replacement" message. So, it is strictly based on hours, right? The image my projector throws still looks great, and bright enough, so I, too, would not want to prematurely replace the lamp (and for the same reasons as you - I want my next lamp to carry me forward to my next projector in a couple of years... Also, I use my projector as you describe: Lengthy sessions, not a lot of ONs and OFFs)

So... I'm curious where you are with your lamp replacement? Still milking the original lamp? Or preemptive replacement? (I tried to search through your posts, but there's so many that I gave up and decided to just ask you directly ;-)

Thanks.

If I were you guys I'd just ping Dominic Chan and buy an OEM spare bulb (he's got an ad in classified as well w/ pics on the swapout process), and throw it in your old cage... takes like 15min and saves you about 75% of list price!

Those lamps are awesome..! I have enough here to last for years hope all is well! Any new 3D movies recently? Last few were Godzilla KOM 3D & Avengers End Game 3D. Alladin is next, 3D is great in this movie.

posting lamp swap info again if anyone missed it before:

For “newbies” it’s best to keep the lamp in the lens-down position when the retaining screws are removed; otherwise there’s a risk that some pieces, including the lens, may fall out. (It’s easy to put them back if you’re familiar with the lamp).

What up my brutha!

Yeah I really enjoyed Endgame in 3D (but 4K looked very good as well... it's prob one of the most enjoyable (& satisfying "OH SNAP"), superhero movies I've ever seen... I love it 3000!). After we saw it in IMAX 3D I found this little gem (above Caps shield/mask), for my theater below and just could NOT resist even tho my wife was like... "Seriously??". Was actually trying to update my theater pics on AVS since my Tennessee theater is all but complete but I keep getting an error and it won't upload my jpeg pics (BOO! . . . says something like "Unable to read the format of file: . . ." whatever the hell that means!? in case any of you smarter peoplez knowz why PM me please!)

Spoiler!



Just watched Aladdin in 4K but 3D won't be here for another week or so.

The Cap shield and mask are awesome..!! I know all about 'the collecting cool stuff bug'. I've been collecting the Marvel steelbooks for years, both the 3D and UHD versions. last 3 are out 10/1 for AntMan, Dr Strange and original GOTG.

I'm looking for ideas how to display these on one of the walls in the room that leads to the HT. maybe something like a translucent shelf in the pic below:
