You want to zoom your image so that the top and bottom line up with the screen, the inner line lines up with the left/right edges of the screen, and the outer left/right edges of the green lines are off the screen. When you send the projector a 1920x1080 or 3840x2160 image, it will automatically be zoomed into this position. The only time the full panel is used is if you either set "zoom" in the menus or you send a 4096x2160 image to the projector (uncommon).

Ok this is *not* just how it is. Sending those 4k images should result in the edges naturally being masked off and only filling the 16x9 area. The masking in the projector should not be used and you're going to be skewing the image this way.

If you fire up the projector, go to menu, installation, then aspect, what do you have it set at? It's behaving like you have it on "zoom". It should be set to "auto". You could also test "native", but that might display dvd content with a small image centered on the screen, if you even care.

Can you post a photo of the menu on your installation menu page?

We have been waiting so long for JVC to have native 4k projectors under $8k. Can't wait. Mines arrive on Monday.

The aspect is set to “Auto”. See attached.

Can you take one more photo? With a source sending signal so that it's overflowing, can you please go to the far right info section with the I on top and take a photo of that (hopefully focused enough to clearly read )

I do not see how your projector could be built different from everyone else's, so I suspect something is set up differently?

Nicely done theater but had ridiculous amount of ambient light. They had bright LED lighting along the top and sides of the screen! When I asked why the demo was on with those lights the sales guy said it was there "for the ladies". Anyway, asked him to turn it off, closed the door and watched Ready Player One 4k disc played through a Sony player. I was not that impressed with the picture, projected on a SI 120" screen. Contrast was lacking, there was no punch, but the picture was "smooth", in a classic Sony fashion. On my way out the sales guy reminded me of the incredible deal but I told him lack of lens memory was a deal breaker for me and left.

On to Star Power where they had the Expo going on. They had a small room dedicated for JVC and JVC reps were on site. They had hooked up an NX9 and NX5 to an Oppo player where they could switch the output back and forth. The rep demoed Peru 8K clip and Ready Player One disc and we watched for about 20 minutes switching between the two PJs several times. The NX9 was incredible - sharpness, contrast, and color saturation. The NX5 had less contrast and less punchy colors as expected but still looked fantastic. I told the rep I wish they had the NX7 as the NX5 vs 7 was what I was interested in. He told me the NX7 would be somewhere in between but closer to the 9. Of course, the whole sales pitch and theme of the expo was 8K, so he kept referring to the NX9 as the "8K Projector" to the public. On the whole I could clearly see a step up from my current RS420.

I told the dealer about the Sony deal and he said JVC was offering free bulb instead, a $600 value, lol. Since I was asking some "advanced" and intelligent questions of the rep, some folks in the room came up to me later asking for advice. I pointed them to this forum and sponsor dealers here as a place to buy should they choose to.
I did the exact same trip, in reverse today.
I started with Star Power and then went to Stereo East and I also asked the rep about the NX7, lol.

Couple interesting things the rep told me: JVC apparently had to switch shipping companies. He claimed that they had never experienced this much shipping damage in all of the years he'd been working for JVC combined. He said the change took place last week.
The other interesting thing, he said JVC was recommending 1.0 gain white screens.
The JVC setup was projected on an SI Slate 120".

NX9 looked pretty incredible. The contrast was fantastic, colors were vibrant and the motion was smooth. I didn't watch the NX5 for long as there were a ton of people in this room asking for the NX9 demos. What I saw still looked good though. The rep also noted that the NX5 can't upscale 720p. Not sure I had ever heard that before.

Then I went to Stereo East, more to take a look at screens than anything else. They had the Sony 285 setup with an SI 1.2 white and the 295 set up with the slate, so this wasn't an apples to apples comparison, but the 295 on slate definitely had better vibrance and contrast. The contrast on those 2 Sony's was really unimpressive by comparison. I had expected the 295 to be closer to the NX5 but it just wasn't there. It was better than the 285, but that also could've been the screen.
The color palette was definitely classic Sony, reminded me of my 40ES. It looks natural but muted.
Interestingly, they were really pushing the slate screens.
The other thing the sales guy said that seemed off was that I shouldn't go with a Zero Edge style screen and a JVC as they're hard to adjust for overshoot? I've never heard that before and it sounded like nonsense to me.

So.. to those that have these projectors, I currently have a 110" 1.0 gain white screen which I was looking to upgrade to something around 135" (assuming my room can handle it). Is white the way to go?
I assume there's no problem with zero edge style screens and JVC projectors; is that correct?

My room is a dedicated media room with full light control. I only occasionally want to watch things with the lights on, so ALR isn't a huge desire, but flexibility is flexibility.

Watched our first movie tonight with the new RS2000 - Star Trek Beyond (Blu-ray version). Very impressive picture. Colors seemed spot on and the image has a nice depth to it, which I think a few others have reported.

Couple of questions:

1. Is there any way to adjust the focus (or to use zoom or lens shift) without using the focus pattern that is called up by Lens Control? I'd rather adjust focus with something like the Quick Brown Fox pattern or some other focus pattern. The focus pattern in the projector is hard to use, IMO. And it's much easier to adjust a a video image (e.g., a 2.35:1 image) so that it fits perfectly on your screen with an actual video image as opposed to the pattern called up by the projector.

2. I have CMD and Motion Enhance set to off for movies, but is that the best choice? Havre some people set to a number other than zero and been pleased with the results? It wasn't clear to me when watching Star Trek Beyond (which has a lot of pans and movement) that "off" is the best setting.

3. Is there a sharpness control? Is that what MPC is?

4. I'm having a little bit of an issue with black level. I suspect it is due to my high gain screen, which probably has an effective gain of something close to 2.0 where have the projector sitting. Does it make sense that the higher gain screen makes it harder to achieve good blacks? FWIW, I have the lens aperture set to -9 and Auto 2.

The rep is wrong. They probably had the aspect ratio set to "native" and didn't realize what it does. In that mode, 1920x1080 and 3840x2160 fills the 16x9 panel screen, 2048x1080 and 4096x2160 fills the 17x9 panel screen, and everything under 1920x1080 is centered not scaled. In auto, it upscales 720p fine.

The 285 and 295 have identical contrast and lumen specs so unless the 285 had some panel degradation over the year, they're the same. I think the N5 is probably more competitive with the 695ES. The 295ES isn't even close due to its lower lumens and lack of dynamic dimming.

The previous generation of JVCs eshift4 and eshift 5 models tended to have some warm up shift where the picture might move 1/2" one way or the other about 30 min after being powered on and may not be exactly the same day after day. That supposedly was fixed this year, but in a light controlled room, I don't see a reason to go zero edge anyway. Plus on the new 4K projectors, the panels are 17x9 native. If you get a 16x9 screen, the left and right of the screen will be digitally masked, which means its basically the same as your black bars on scope content. If you have a velvet bezel on your screen you cant notice this at all. If you have zero edge you may. (Same goes for all sony 4k projectors, but even worse because their black floor is higher).

I'll try. I have 200+ uhd bd movies. Might be a little busy. I know I'm going to have to watch them all over if the rs2000 is significantly better than my rs520.

Went thru that when I got the Swan 2.3B speakers. I had listened to music my whole life but I never heard it, at least not like the Swans can play.

Cool.
Thanks for the feedback, very helpful.

The thought around zero edge has more to do with my room than anything else.
My 110" currently only has about 13" above it to hang a larger screen. A 133" Zero Edge is 12" taller than my current screen, whereas a normal screen is going to add 3" to that height.
Otherwise, I'd have to move my screen down, which means relocating the center channel.

Ok. I've been pondering the same thing for the same reason. What I've decided works is to take the wall where the screen will go and get some black velvet and mount it on the wall before putting the screen up. Then put the screen up and around the screen on the wall will be the velvet. Now your picture can overflow onto the wall without any real issue.

I didn't watch the NX5 for long as there were a ton of people in this room asking for the NX9 demos. What I saw still looked good though. The rep also noted that the NX5 can't upscale 720p. Not sure I had ever heard that before.



Then I went to Stereo East, more to take a look at screens than anything else. They had the Sony 285 setup with an SI 1.2 white and the 295 set up with the slate, so this wasn't an apples to apples comparison, but the 295 on slate definitely had better vibrance and contrast. The contrast on those 2 Sony's was really unimpressive by comparison. I had expected the 295 to be closer to the NX5 but it just wasn't there. It was better than the 285, but that also could've been the screen.

The color palette was definitely classic Sony, reminded me of my 40ES. It looks natural but muted.

Interestingly, they were really pushing the slate screens.

The other thing the sales guy said that seemed off was that I shouldn't go with a Zero Edge style screen and a JVC as they're hard to adjust for overshoot? I've never heard that before and it sounded like nonsense to me.



So.. to those that have these projectors, I currently have a 110" 1.0 gain white screen which I was looking to upgrade to something around 135" (assuming my room can handle it). Is white the way to go?

I assume there's no problem with zero edge style screens and JVC projectors; is that correct?



My room is a dedicated media room with full light control. I only occasionally want to watch things with the lights on, so ALR isn't a huge desire, but flexibility is flexibility.


Just FYI, the new zero edge pros now have borders so over shoot shouldn’t be an issue anymore

So further to my last post – who needs sleep with new N7 in the home theater –
Pretty much up all night marvelling at projector-
The black level/contrast/weird gamma changes all relatedly to the DI-
The yellow tinge can be seen when DI engaged on certain areas as well-
So don’t recommend its usage-software version is 1.20
So ending up using User 1/ manual iris between -8 and -12/
On both sdr and hdr- brightness down -3-
All motion handling turned off – (125" 2:35:1 scope screen /no gain screen/ bat cave environment)
So now pretty happy with black levels-
The rest of image is superlative – quite striking and at times just stare in awe-
2001: A Space Odyssey – are you kidding me –hate to use term blown away
but my god- just wow-watched whole dam thing in middle of the night-
so many examples -The expanse TV series – have already watched series and just wanted to see 4k sdr
version I have-You know what happened next - hours later - stunning!!!!
Sin City - regular 1080 bluray fed from oppo- showcase piece! - can go on and on-


Of note- I get the same over scan that @Dave T and several others have mentioned
in this thread –

Yes- I don't have any experience/knowledge in Tone mapping- will have to learn how to manipulate the settings - kind sucks thou- I don't mind spending time optimizing my audio/video AT FIRST -
I'm more of set and forget after doing all the calibrations etc but after that I just want to turn my projector on - go upstairs - make my popcorn and pour my guinness go down an enjoy the show-
guessing hdr is still sorta new - hdmi was pain as well - cheers

And it's much easier to adjust a a video image (e.g., a 2.35:1 image) so that it fits perfectly on your screen with an actual video image as opposed to the pattern called up by the projector.
Manual pg.54. Installation Mode -> Lens Control -> Image Pattern.

Since all sources are going through Marantz, plug Oppo directly into PJ and see if this solves anything (if so, Marantz scaling isn't set to passthrough).

I don't think several others have mentioned this. Almost everyone talking about it didnt realize the panel was 17x9 and was referencing it regarding setting zoom. Dave T is the first person that's complained about having a regular image stretching to fill the full 17x9 panel. If yours is doing that, too, can you take a photo of that happening, then the info screen in the projector and also test between "auto" and "native" for the aspect item on page 2 of the menu?

My RS2000 doesn’t behave this way. It will only fill the full panel width if I pick zoom.

I think if Dave tossed up his projector settings along with the alignment grid we might see what’s going on.

Yes, great room. Well done! I really like the floating zero edge screen with recessed matte black wall behind. How does that work with image overspill? Is your CC speaker behind screen?

However, JVC has reassured me that despite the shortage whilst production catches up with the overwhelming demand, that I will be receiving brand new replacement units in circa 21 days' time; which personally I am very happy about all things considered.
A little more than 21 days later... any updates?

I’m happy to do this. Please tell me what specific settings you’d like to see. And pottscb - you must have missed it, but I did try bypassing the marantz by plugging the Apple TV directly into the projector. Same overscan problem.

That would definitely be a controversial question! For people like me, low frame rates (anything less than 72fps) are very distracting and ruin the realism. In this case, CMD can make the movie more realistic. I especially like the improvement when watching interlaced video - like the CNBC stock ticker, for example. The difference is night-and-day.

On the other hand, some people argue that they don't think it was the director's "intent" to smooth out the motion. Also, the frame interpolation can make certain things more obvious - like uneven dolly/camera movement, for example.

So I would say try it and set it whatever way you like best.

I have a similar issue but with RTI ip driver, makes me wonder if it is not just my setup but an issue with ip control on the JVCs

I'd previously suggested that those here who have lamented the black levels on the new series should view either of the "Sin City" Blu Rays. Frankly, I can't imagine blacks being any deeper, as they blend into the solid black of my screen's surrounding cloth bezel. And the contrast levels............ BTW, if you think that the original "Sin City" Blu Ray is a "masterpiece", wait until you experience the sequel "A Dame To Kill For" in 3D!
