I feel your pain! Been there, done that with a number of AV devices. I always struggle to refamiliarize myself with MakeHex, IRScrutinizer, Pronto Edit, etc. and then actually get the code to work correctly.
You’ll laugh in that my favorite remote is the MX-850. I just love the 10 hard keys and simple text screen. Our guests can even figure it out without being shown how to use it. I love MX-850 Editor as I can just fly with that software. I’m so bummed that they stopped updating the IR database.
I finally resorted to getting an MX-990 and Complete Control Software. I really don’t like it that much as I find programming with it to be much more slow and cumbersome. What I end up doing is programming the IR codes I need and then teach them to the MX-850s I have.

Definitely – I hope to get either an RS-440 or RS-540. While I think the 440 would do the job for me, I’d probably get the itch to upgrade much earlier to get the THX Cert, Wide Color Gamut (WCG), 130,000:1 vs 40,000:1 Native Contrast Mode, Dynamic Iris Differences that the 540 offers. I think the 440 would keep me content for a few years whereas the 540 would make me blissful for at least four years. Like everyone else, the biggest obstacle will likely be to get my wife’s blessing.

Not all the ir codes listed work on the current models but most do. PM me if you want to know about any particular codes.
Thanks for finding that information. If you ever happen to find an IR code for the low latency – please PM me as that would be great to have. It’s frustrating that JVC publishes the codes for that for the RS-232 but does not provide IR codes for the latency or all the other things they do for RS-232.

Thank you for confirming Stranger89s post. It is very important to me that the USER settings retain all the proper settings to simplify operations of the projector and different operating modes to make it easy to use for my family.
Again – thank you all for your help. While I live in the Minneapolis / St. Paul metro area, JVC only lists 3 projector dealers. Two of them are Best Buy Magnolias and the other is an independent with a nice retail showroom.
One of the Magnolias had a RS-420 in a room but when I got there they told me it hasn’t worked for at least six weeks as they can’t get the optical/HDMI link to work properly. They did have an Epson 5040 and a Sony VPL-VW675ES. While the Epson was setup reasonably well, the Sony looked like crap. I have no idea as to what they did to make it look so bad – a real shame.
While the other Magnolia and Independent told me they had JVCs and to come take a look, they neglected to tell me they didn’t have any JVCs on display. Rest assured, all three places pounded into me the great merits of the Sony and Epson. I truly can’t knock either the Sony or Epson as they also have a lot of strengths but I thought it was interesting. It’s hard to believe JVC hasn’t managed to build a better presence in a large metro area like the Twin Cities.
Given all that, I will not have a chance to see a JVC in action until I actually purchase a JVC projector. I’d sure love to see one first but I’m confident based on all I’ve read and the support of folks like you that I’ll be thrilled with the performance and learn to tweak anything I need based on everyone’s feedback. I’m very grateful that all of you were able to help me confirm that I can save all settings to a USER setting to make it work in the manner our family is accustomed to. That was my big roadblock but I’m happy to hear it will all work as intended.
I look forward to getting the pre-order pricing – I hope I can make it all work out!
