Did you pick one up? The NX9 is amazing. I'm enjoying every minute with it. Just waiting for the yellowing issue to be resolved. I've been in contact with JVC in Mississauga with regards to it. [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
I only wish I had an NX9. I can’t imagine anyone not loving that projector!

I just purchased an X790 within the last year and happened to be at JVC Mississauga to have some service work done. While I was their they were kind enough to give me a demo with that demo material as well as some clips from The Revenant and Guardians of the Galaxy.

I have nothing but great things to say about the service from JVC Mississauga. Couldn’t ask for better service!

Per the instructions, the flash drive should be inserted while the PJ is off and turned on with flash drive already inserted. I've followed those instructions but i'm really curious if that matters?


I didn’t do that, I started it up and then put it in.

Hmmmmm. That’s odd they’d request that. U less it only initializes/scans/sweeps for drives at boot.

Clearly that’s not working for you though. Try it like I did. Start it up and let it boot, then put it in.

Also, i don’t want to start a heated discussion here, but my new one has firmware version 2.04. It appears that the whites bo longer turn yellow when DI clamps down. At least in sdr. The tone changes slightly but if anything the whites now turn down to a cooler blue shifted tone. Just my observation.

That is awesome ... maybe JVC fixed the DI issue

The screen has side panel masking.

Isco/Panamorph?
Scaler?
Does the PJ do the squeeze?

Would appreciate some advice....

Since you have a curved screen, I would go with a horizontal expansion lens, not vertical compression. So Isco or Prismasonic. What fabric is in your screen? I also have a curved screen and will be pairing an RS3000 with my A-lens.

Thanks for the response!
It's a Micro-Perf Firehawk with 1.1 gain.
I have an Isco III from my last theater in my previous home. Think it would be the right choice and would the anamorphic upconversion modes now incorporated into all the new JVC 4K projectors be put to good use?
Maybe use a Cineslide?

Yup. And as a bonus some regions have an N5 and N7 instead of an NX5 and NX7. MARKETING!

All the modes are in the NX9/RS3000 for your lens. With that lens, I would use a slide. Yes, NX9 and RS3000 are the same projector. Just different color on lens trim ring.

One less thing to buy on top of an already pricey NX9 :-)
I'll do the motorized slide with the ISCO III.
Man...that's a lot of glass elements between the 9's 100mm Dia. cannon and the Isco III !

I have an strange issue with my new NX5. It appears that there is a purple/magenta top border of all sources on any color setting.
It has 8 hours on it (and that's mostly testing and getting harmony all sync'd up), brand new out of the JVC box and all.

It even has the purple line on the lens shift pattern. held up a piece of white foam close to the lense to illustrate.

I will attach pics to demo it.

I have heard and seen similar situations where the colored mirrors are mis-aligned

Any ideas?

You have some misaligned element in the light path. You'll have to get it replaced.

I had a similar issue with my first NX7, though in my unit's case it was that the bottom 10% of the screen had a blue tint to it. I had mine replaced (have had the replacement for about 1 1/2 weeks now) and the new one appears to be fine.

You will need to replace yours as well.

Holy cow...it's like we are twins. I will have the exact same setup as you! That's just plain weird. What kind of throw do you have to your screen?

I tested the dynamic iris on the NX7 with the opening credits of "Blade Runner". The implementation has improved since the days of the RS500, No more pumping. But the yellowing bug turned the red letters into orange. Maybe someone with the latest firmware can test to see if this is gone?

Gosh. This particular defect is getting too “frequent” for these new N series.

C’mon JVC, release the firmware ver 2.04 to the owners here so that we can get the best Picture Quality out of your projectors.

Yea, no more pumping means the iris doesn't clamp down as hard so your blacks are raised compared to where they use to be. I'd rather an option to keep the blacks down with the pumping. I consider this a step backwards.

Yes, hopefully this won't be gradually creeping in over the years as well like the old RS20 / RS35.

I was told that 2.04 will not be a public release, only a factory release. Not sure what it addresses or why it is factory only, but that was the information I was given.

Just curious, is it better to do HDR>SDR/BT2020 or use HDR for the new N series projectors. The former gives a brighter and punchier PQ though no more using the PQ curve. But Using HDR tends to have the issue of raised black floor which makes the overall image less “pop”.

Which one do you guys prefer? I owned both Pioneer LX-500 and Panasonic UB-420 and really preferred the image quality of LX-500 outputting SDR/BT2020. The image is simply stunning with no raised black floor issue.

Thanks Kris for the update. As always appreciate your inputs on this. If you don’t know the changelog for this new firmware, then I doubt anyone knows exactly what this new firmware entails in terms of improvement, if any.

I’ve had the N5 for few weeks now and I’m really impressed by it. However I’m having a rather weird issue with it. Sometimes, after using it for a while, the screen will get full of these weird artifacts, kinda like vertical lines with weird colors. It usually happens when the pu switches between different video modes, but today
It also suddenly happened while I was just browsing the UB820 menu. The JVC menu also becomes royally messed up. First I thought it’s an issue with my receiver/HDMI cable, but the problem persists even when unplugging the HDMI cable from the projector. The menu is still messed up big time.

Shutting down and instantly repoweting the projector always fixes the issue, which to me sounds like a software bug instead of defect in hardware.

I’m running in low lamp mode, and the projector is running very cool, not hot air around the pj at all, so I don’t think it’s overheating either.

I attached a photo where you can easily see the visual artifacts as well as how the jvc menu looks like.

Anyone seen anything like this or have any ideas? This is my first projector so I’m kinda lost and am running out of ideas what might cause this.

It also suddenly happened while I was just browsing the UB820 menu. The JVC menu also becomes royally messed up. First I thought it’s an issue with my receiver/HDMI cable, but the problem persists even when unplugging the HDMI cable from the projector. The menu is still messed up big time.

Shutting down and instantly repoweting the projector always fixes the issue, which to me sounds like a software bug instead of defect in hardware.

I’m running in low lamp mode, and the projector is running very cool, not hot air around the pj at all, so I don’t think it’s overheating either.

I attached a photo where you can easily see the visual artifacts as well as how the jvc menu looks like.

Anyone seen anything like this or have any ideas? This is my first projector so I’m kinda lost and am running out of ideas what might cause this.
When that happens, what happens if you switch to say HDMI2 and wait for a blue screen? Does the blue screen also have the artifact? And then switch back after? To me that feels like some sort of CPU/memory error.

Video: JVC RS4500 135" screen in pure black room no light, htpc nvidia 1080ti.
Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, 2 sub arrays both infinite baffle: 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 4x12 fi audio running on 2nd ep4000.

Well, yes & no.

Fix one thing but break two others is not a good thing by any stretch of the imagination as any competent software engineer should know.

It highlights inadequate regression testing following the rectification of software defects.

This falls back to JVC’s quality and engineering assurance processes being inadequate.

More likely because JVC have not sufficiently analysed what regression testing is needed and more of a “panic” fix to get the patch out to the field ASAP before JVC sales are affected for that product.

Having said that, I agree in that they have addressed the issues very quickly.

Same thing happens on my NX5 occasionally, although I haven't seen it happen when watching my UB820, only when using the Nvidia Shield. A reboot of the projector always fixes it.
