I am using the HDMI output from a Marantz SR6011 to connect my projector. I wanted to run a 9.2 dolby atmos setup and the Marantz ended up being my choice. Has been flawless to this point!

Hi everyone I would like to hear from owners of this JVC in combo with a Panasonic player 420/820/9000 what luminance you achieved for SDR2020 playback. I mean is there an ideal reference/target or rather up to one’s personal taste? Thank you

Got my X570R recently (~200 hours) and set it up. It looks awesome right off the bat. This thread is a bit daunting, so excuse these questions, which have no doubt been answered before.

1. I see a lot about pro level calibration and curves, but can anyone point me to some "newbie" settings that provide a guide on better-than-factory recommended settings to start? With a 150" screen.
2. The unit makes a slight buzz/hum that can be heard in low lamp mode. It's slightly louder than the fan. I presume this is e-shift? I've seen conflicting posts on this. Some saying it's normal and some people are returning their units?
3. I watched Back to the Future last night (in 4K, BluRay on an Xbox One X), and it almost looked too smooth. I turned off all of the settings that I thought would smooth the picture. Am I missing something?

That's all to start!

What player are you using? Panasonic for sure would make the difference, at least for HDR. If you’re watching regular blu rays the best picture mode is Natural. You can leave contrast and brightness controls on 0 default. Color temperature 6500k. For the gamma it’s a little more complicated and it would required tools to properly fix it but if you select 2.3 in the value it can help rather than normal or 2.2. I don’t particularly like the e-shift enhance more than 2 or even 0

@mkiv808 , you should get the UB420, as it does help with our RS420 projectors. @Dominic Chan gave a great link, especially with Dreamliner's JVC & ub820 Guide. Enjoy!

What a day! I finally finished mounting the RS420 last night. I have not totally dialed things in yet, but I am really happy with the way things look. I even got a thumbs up from the wife on how nice the picture was. I am getting ready to dial in settings on the UB820 later today. Can't wait to see UHD on this. I will say, I will never mount one of these by myself again. It was an experience. Thanks for all the support and information you all have provided here.

Picked it up today! The weird smooth motion I was seeing from Xbox One X Blu-Ray is gone. Weird, because I didn't notice that when my Xbox was hooked up to my LG OLED.

So the only thing I'm wondering is what level of buzzing is normal from the unit.

Yea @mkiv808 , I can't help you there, I hear a slight buzz when the RS420 starts up, and then mine is pretty silent from there on out. Do you have any kind of warranty on it for possible exchange....

A little buzz is normal. It’s the e-shift. Try to set it on off when not connected to the player and you will not hear anymore

e-shift is turned on automatically when the input is 4k.

Yes exactly so that’s why I suggested to not use any input and player. Just turn on the projector and disable the e-shift.

And what are you going to watch with no input?

My point is that, even if you turn off e-shift with no input, it will turn back on automatically when a 4K input is present. You can only use the projector without e-shift at 1080p or lower resolution.

I think, he was referring to the buzz. If projector on with no input = no buzz, then the buzz is from e-shift.

You can also set your player to output 1080, and watch a non-4k blu ray. You would also need to turn the 2k upscale off on the projector to get a plain 1080 output.

I do hear a bit of a buzz when my projector goes into e-shift, but it tapers off quite a bit after the initial switch to 4k.

So was I.

I was pointing out that e-shift is always on with a 4K input, even if one tries to turn it off.

I have attempted several different suggestions to get the projector to shut off using my Harmony One. I know there is a way to set the remote up, but I am not having any luck here. Besides that, I am really happy with the picture quality and everything else. If anyone using the Harmony One can help me, I would appreciate it. PIA to hit help to shut down every night.

@Villagedweller , I am using Harmony Elite. What happens when you power off, does everything turn off, but the projector?

Exactly. I know there is a way to add another power off command. I just have not had any luck doing it.

I am at work, but will look at order of settings tonight. When I am done watching a flick, I just turn off remote, and all components turn off as well.

I appreciate you taking the time. It is a pain to go into computer to attempt to fix stuff and then it doesn't work on the remote side of things. I will not let this beat me!

Following the advice of other Harmony users, I told it my pj was an RS600 (I have a 570) and have had no problem with powering off.

So @Villagedweller , when you are using remote and press the power button(off) nothing happens? I just press the power off button, and the 420 turns off. Did you ask in the Harmony One forum? I do not have that remote...

When I press the off button on remote, everything turns off and projector has the blue input screen showing. If I hit help button, it turns projector off. If I go into devices and to projector, I can turn off. Should not have to do that. It has to be an order or a delay that I am missing in between power off commands. Ugh!

I think I have it last. Maybe I should reverse the order. Worth a shot. Thanks!
