I've used the Chief mounts with all 3 of my projectors and cannot reccommend them more highly. The links are included on the 1st page of this thread.

JVC does advertise lines of resolution with FI turned on, I think it's about 900 lines vs 300 something when turned off so it's pretty good in my opinion when watching sports, I also use it for movies for that same reason.

DLP would be better but the JVC is every bit as good as all my LCD flat screens in the house for watching sports.

Each screen is different. I would not use settings meant for another screen.

The ST matte white screen is fairly neutral and you should be OK without setting the screen type. If you’re doing an actual calibration the screen material is accounted for when you take readings off the screen.

Thank you. If there are no known matches on JVC's list that correspond to the Silver Ticket, I'll just leave it as is and not set screen type. I'll also be doing a followup calibration with Calman afterwards.

Test images like QBF should be displayed in native resolution. e-shifted (non-native) 4K will look less sharp, but “smoother” (less blocker) than 1080p. That’s why usually one should adjust focus with 1080p source and e-shift turned off.

JonnyVee- Try this:
1) Look at Windows at 1920x1080 with e-shift off.
2) Look at Windows at 3840x2160 with e-shift on, but set DPI scaling to 200%

Look at the text and overall image. Which looks better ?

I believe Javs has comparison shots of JVC 1080p versus e-shift in which shows that e-shift does in fact give you more resolution than native 1080p. If anyone has that link, please post as I do not remember what thread it was in. The problem with text on 3840x2160 is that the JVC e-shift isn't true 3840x2160p so it won't look as good as a native projector.

Terminate- Can you post a pic of your SD looking menu? When you do so, do it with the info that shows your incoming resolution/bit-depth/etc. Maybe take a 2nd with menu showing e-shift on, and then a 3rd showing e-shift off. Perhaps you have a panel alignment issue?

I've played around extensively on 1080p discs, toggling between 4k and 2k to see which provides the sharper picture. I can say with certainty that 4k looks much better than the 2k profile.

We asked JVC if the RS540U was still being produced, this is what was said:

Maybe one more shipment. Not sure.
Nothing more in May. Possibly June.

My sincere apologies for the late response. Thank you for your replies. I’m going to look at the NX5 and Epson 6050. Movies and sports are my viewing habits. Hopefully, one of these projectors provide a bright, color picture with POP.

I had ordered a big lot of Blu-rays that showed up a bit before my RS540 did and Ive been having sooooo much fun every evening watching a new movie! Never has my theater felt more like a fantastic private cinema then it has now. Im able to truly be swept away in my movies without poor black levels taking me out of the scene, which was my big complaint with my last projector. Every day I literally count down the hours until i get to go back down into the theater! Ive always had some little performance detail keeping me from truly getting engulfed into each moive, but I got my audio down pat and now my image is too! Need to quit waking up my wife with the bass tho lol.

Thank you gentlemen, appreciate the insight. I’m a newbie with JVC and it’s helpful when learning the ropes.

I also talked to JVC Canada and they confirmed what I was seeing was normal. Today I’ll be running autocal with my new Spyder and then fine-tuning with Calman.

I will say this. I’m really glad BenQ’s release of the HT3550 was delayed. Made me think outside the box (installed a porthole to get a longer throw and move the projector out of my 11’ deep theatre room) and I got a much better projector because of it.

New RS540 on the way...most likely going with 135 inch screen. Which screen would you recommend?
Room is light controlled (black out curtains make it pitch black), dark grey walls and black ceiling with black velvet on projector wall and first 6 feet of ceiling. Overkill...maybe.
But as for the screen...once and a while we might have low ambient light when company is over and we are watching sports or something. Otherwise it’ll be completely black.
I’d like to keep the budget under $1k.
I will be watching both 3D and 4K movies.

“Better” is in the eye of the beholder, but most people seem to prefer SDR2020 for projectors.

Congratulations. If you like the 540 as much as we like ours you'll have many hours of pleasurable viewing. As far as screen's are concerned, how far from the screen is your primary viewing position? We're throwing the image on a 110" (16x9) screen and we sit about 8 feet from the screen. How close you sit is a big factor in screen size and brightness. Have you looked as the "used" market for a screen? Often people move and are forced to replace their screen. Start by checking the "for sale" section of this forum. Unless you move often, your screen will likely stay with you much longer than your projector. We're on our 3rd projector with this screen. It sounds like you've got a very nice room.

HIGH ALTITUDE MODE VS. FAN NOISE

I know JVC projectors have lower thresholds for heat build-up than most other brands (JVC recommends utilizing High Altitude mode at elevations above 3,000 feet). Unfortunately, they're also nosier than most other brands when this mode is activated. I would like to hear the experiences and suggestions of projector-owners in High Altitude regions, to see if they have found a way to compensate for this situation (or whether they simply chose to disregard it, without repercussions).

For instance, would using the JVC projector for nighttime viewing possibly eliminate the need for High Altitude mode, or perhaps during cooler months of the year? What about the idea of hanging a USB fan next to one of the exhaust ports as an alternative to High Altitude mode, to either blow or draw air (and if so, which particular port of the RS540-style projector)? Or could this possibly cause issues with dust build-up or dust blobs? Can High Altitude mode be deactivated occasionally in order to enjoy programming that is equatable with, in Elaine Benes' words, being "sponge-worthy" of the privilege? After all, what's the good of watching "A Quiet Place" when your projector environment is anything but?

I live in the Southwest, at 4,000-feet elevation. I had to remove both my PS3 and Dish Network receiver from my A/V cabinet in order to get them to stop periodically shutting down, presumably due to low air density. I used to keep High Altitude activated on my Sony projector as a precaution (even though its threshold was 5,000 feet), without having significant issues with its fan noise (but its panels failed nevertheless). But the JVC is a whopper; its loud High Altitude fan drowning out a lot of the benefits of having a well- calibrated audio system.

My projector hangs about 6 1/2 inches from my eight-foot ceiling, about two feet behind my seating.

Has anyone that has received one of the Amazon lamps checked it with a light meter to see if it is putting out as many lumens as an original?
Thanks

I know JVC projectors have lower thresholds for heat build-up than most other brands (JVC recommends utilizing High Altitude mode at elevations above 3,000 feet). Unfortunately, they're also nosier than most other brands when this mode is activated. I would like to hear the experiences and suggestions of projector-owners in High Altitude regions, to see if they have found a way to compensate for this situation (or whether they simply chose to disregard it, without repercussions).

For instance, would using the JVC projector for nighttime viewing possibly eliminate the need for High Altitude mode, or perhaps during cooler months of the year? What about the idea of hanging a USB fan next to one of the exhaust ports as an alternative to High Altitude mode, to either blow or draw air (and if so, which particular port of the RS540-style projector)? Or could this possibly cause issues with dust build-up or dust blobs? Can High Altitude mode be deactivated occasionally in order to enjoy programming that is equatable with, in Elaine Benes' words, being "sponge-worthy" of the privilege? After all, what's the good of watching "A Quiet Place" when your projector environment is anything but?

I live in the Southwest, at 4,000-feet elevation. I had to remove both my PS3 and Dish Network receiver from my A/V cabinet in order to get them to stop periodically shutting down, presumably due to low air density. I used to keep High Altitude activated on my Sony projector as a precaution (even though its threshold was 5,000 feet), without having significant issues with its fan noise (but its panels failed nevertheless). But the JVC is a whopper; its loud High Altitude fan drowning out a lot of the benefits of having a well- calibrated audio system.

My projector hangs about 6 1/2 inches from my eight-foot ceiling, about two feet behind my seating.

Thank you very much.
I live at 7200ft my settings are high altitude mode OFF because of the noise. My lamp is on high for 4K (HDR) and low for cinema mode. My projector is in a well ventilated area. I just replaced my bulb after 2800 hrs. JVC advertises 4500 hour bulb life, probably on Low lamp, ECO mode.

When I connect my HTPC to JVC RS540 via my receiver (X4300H), I do not get a signal if I set the output of my video card (1070Ti) to Full RGB, 8 bit and 60hz, but if I set it to Full RGB, 8 bit (or 12 bit) and 30hz, I get a signal. My Projector is connected to the receiver via a 25 foot Amazon Basics cable. The obvious thing that comes to mind is that this is a HDMI cable issue - just wanted to confirm from the collective wisdom here that this is case before I replace my cable. Please suggest.

Sounds like a cable issue to me. I'd get one of the monoprice premium certified ones - they come in 25 ft and even 30 ft.

Ditto! The Monoprice certified cables are outstanding and have a lifetime guarantee. They also have fiber optics for longer runs.

Official JVC - 20LTD - RS640 (x990/x9900) - RS540 (X790/x7900) - Owners Thread

Hey all just finished reading this whole thread in anticipation of receiving my 540. I was hoping you could check my logic on HDR tone mapping?

I’ll be using madVR as my primary source is an HTPC with Kodi (buying an RTX2060).

If I understand correctly, most people running MadVR map the hdr content to SDR/2020 color profile. And then select the SDR mode on the JVC with their own preferred iris/lamp/color filter/ etc settings.

However, this means that both SDR and HDR content would get the exact same image settings in terms of lamp/iris/filter/etc. I was under the impression we would want different lamp/iris settings for HDR and SDR content, even when using MadVR, so how do we go about changing these settings easily between SDR and HDR content?

Or is it as simple as saving an SD color profile with relevant settings for HDR content and then using Rec709 for SD content?

Thanks!

Russell

Congratulations on your new PJ.

I had posted the below Excel spreadsheet with a settings matrix that has various recommendations and tips I have collected that you may find useful.
