So I haven't done it yet. Be nice if there were a June, 2018 guide.
This what worked for me:
1) In Javs signature there is a link to the Arve Tool instructions that he has written up which are very good- Download these instructions
2) Download the Arve Tool from this link - https://github.com/arvehj/jvcprojectortools
3) Download Python from this link - https://www.python.org/downloads/
4) Download Javs V3 curves from his signature- Use the 1200nitv3 and the 4000nitv3
5) Install Python - once installed you will not need to do anything else with this program
6) Now that you have Python installed you can go back to the Arve Tool folder that you downloaded (it will be a folder called jvcprojectortools-master
) and the program will be in that folder - menu.py
7) Copy Javs V3 curves into the same folder that menu.py is located
8) Now you need to hook up your projector to your computer. What I did that worked for me was to hook up the projector to the same router that my computer is hard wired to. I had to reboot my modem one time in order for the Arve tool to find the projector
9) Set you picture mode to one of the user modes (i.e. User1)
10) Set you Gamma to (Custom 1) and your Correction Value to (Import)
11) Open menu.py on the PC
12) Type - lf 1200nitv3 [hit enter] this loads the file
13) Then type Pw [hit enter] this writes the file to the projector
14) It should ask you for your projectors IP address - This can be found under the network setting on your Projector (i.e. 192.168.0.2) [hit enter]
15) Now you can do the exact same thing to load the 4000nitv3 file into (Custom 2) starting at step 12
16) Set the black level - I have not done this yet as I do not have a way to play the .mp4 files until I get a 4k Bluray player
Once the gamma files are loaded into the Custom slots they can be used for any of the Picture settings. So when your projector auto switches to HDR if you have the gamma setting set as Custom 1
and your Correction Value to Import
it will always default to that.
I did find Javes curves a bit on the dull/darker side for my setup so I tweaked the reference white value a little and they are working great now. I am not sure if that is the perfect way to do it but it seems great to my eye so I am sure I am 90-95% of the way there. If you run into this issue just let me know and I can walk you through what I did.
Hopefully with this and Javs PDF instructions you should be on your way.
