The issue is NOT present if CMD is disabled.
Functional frame interpolation is in my opinion something that should be a given at this price point. While purists may prefer to play back content without 'enhancement' I don't feel like the native motion resolution of a LCoS panel is sufficient for all usage.
I will be posting examples in this thread as I come upon them during normal viewing. The projector in my case is a RS420.
Hopefully we can provide JVC with enough information to address this issue. Please feel free to post additional examples as you find them and if possible provide the following:
Content being watched (For example disc name and timestamp).
Source (What model disc player etc).
Settings on the source (Output resolution....Deep Color etc)
Settings on the Projector (MPC, E -Shift, CMD High or Low).
Are there any other devices in the chain (AVR, Darbee etc).
Personally unless otherwise mentioned above I have not found a combination of settings that entirely removes the artifacts but I believe it is important to determine if any external factors are contributing to the problem.
I've attached an example of the issue from a previous thread. The banding is visible on the woman's face with CMD enabled. As mentioned above I will be providing additional examples in this thread as I see them and have time to make note of the time stamp / take pictures.
I have the RS600 and have never seen this and believe me I have been looking critically . Now in saying that I guess I have not used CMD very often. I did like the process in the beginning but at some point just stopped using it altogether. I did notice SOE but never banding. I have seen plenty of posterization though.
But it was in the source because it showed up on the VW675 exactly at the same places .
Will fire up CMD and have a closer look, I'm sure it's there .
Hope you can pressure a solution for the issue in the form of a software update, I'm sure all would appreciate the efforts.
