Please advise.
This is the anticipation thread. You probably want to post this in the owners' thread. But I believe that the usual recommendation is 200 hours.

P.S. I also don't think it's kosher to post stuff for sale outside of the for sale forum. I'm not positive, but I think I recall that.

Thank you Smitty...

I checked with Michael Lang - he said it is OK to post it at the footer as long as you don't discuss it in the thread...

(sorry, thread is really too long to search at this point..)

As far as I can tell these JVCs don't support Dolby Vision. Should I be sad about this? Any chance JVC might firmware update? Wait until the N6, N8 and NX10? Thoughts?

Zero projectors do Dolby vision.

Is there a reason you think it will be Dolby Vision is needed?

None of these projectors support Dolby Vision and if waiting for that, it might never come.

Thanks everyone, indeed waiting for new features is often a bad idea. Dolby Vision was touted as a more intelligent way to do HDR, but eh, I think HDR10 might be sufficient regardless....

These projectors do frame by frame tone mapping without dolby vision and it supports all HDR10 sources. Dolby vision works similar in that the mastering engineer can store off in the video meta the frame light level. JVC projector ignores the meta and measures the frame light level on the fly. The result is great.

I am a bit puzzled. I had a X7000 and a Paladin DCR. Was really happy with the lens optimising picture quality significantly. Now updated to the NX9 and reinstalled the DCR lens after using the projector without the lens for the first week. Now without the lens picture quality is super sharp with great contrast. With the lens I somehow have the feeling to loosen both contrast and sharpness significantly. I presumably can still optimise the positioning of the lens but it wasn't too far off? Any ideas?

It has to be the position of the lens in relation to your NX9.I didn't lose any sharpness or contrast using it with my RS4500. But it took quite a bit of fine tuning to get the lens positioned just right.

Place a piece of white paper between your A-lens and the projector lens. Have the paper against the back of the A-lens. Is the image centered on the A-lens? Next place the paper on the exit side of the A-lens. Is the image centered there? Note, you posted in the anticipation thread, not the owners thread.

This certainly helped me to ensure my DCR lens was properly centered/aligned, thx MG...Because the lens is larger than your previous JVC you may have to move the lens further out to compensate for the ~1/3 increase in lens size and/or move the projector further back to increase the TD. Just my quick thoughts, hope this helps.

Peace and blessings,

Azeke
