Sounds like it isn't quite ready for "prime time" release.
The last thing JVC wants to do is release their new first model year full line of 4K projectors before all of the major bugs have been worked out; and DI, if that is the case, is major.
If they released it prematurely with a major issue, the blowback would be enormous. Future sales would tank, and potential customers would be reluctant to "take a chance" on spending 6 to 18 thousand dollars on an entirely new JVC 4K projector line with known, unresolved "issues".
Best to get it right and get it fixed BEFORE release than have to issue a massive recall, or refuse to ever admit or acknowledge the problem/defect even exists, like SONY Corp has for years concerning the KNOW, PROVEN "PANEL DEGRADATION" issue that is present across their entire PJ line. *People SAY this problem has finally been "fixed",.
But since SONY Corp has NEVER, EVER admitted it even exists, who can say? And how could anyone ever have the confidence to trust the "rumors" and 3rd party hearsay and assurances that the "problem" has finally been fixed when SONY Corp's official attitude and response has consistently been: "Panel degradation problem? What problem? We don't know about any problem!."
Which is why, after owning two SONY PJ's I'm not buying another SONY projector, but am looking to purchase a 4K JVC PJ instead. After I am sure there aren't any known "issues".
Like I said at the outset, better to get it right BEFORE release, even if it takes a bit longer.
