Hey Everyone -
I recently sold my JVC DLA-RS500U and purchased the Sony VPL-VW675ES, and couldn't be happier - the picture quality is simply outstanding with 4K.
One issue I'm having - the brightness of the projector is very high (typically a good thing) even on Low Lamp power, the intensity of whites during moving is almost blinding in my home theater room on the HD Progressive 1.1 screen.
On the JVC, I had the ability to control the dynamic iris and turn down the light output for my preference.
On the Sony - in the Dynamic Iris menu, there is the option of "Brightness" - but when changing this value, I don't see any change to the light-output of the projector. I can set it to MIN all the way up to 100, and the light-output to the screen appears the same, I don't see any change?
Am I doing something wrong? If I reduce the Brightness under the "Dynamic Iris" menu, shouldn't this be closing the Iris and limiting the light output, similar to the control on the JVC?
Is there maybe something wrong in the current firmware of the projector, not allowing the control of the Iris? When the iris is opening/closing, should I be able to hear this (the JVC had a mechanical noise when the iris would shift) on the Sony? I don't hear anything changing, so is maybe the iris not working properly?
Thanks for everyone's help!
