I'm doubtful that the blue/vertical stripe trigger is especially source-specific. The stripes appeared on my first RS1000 when displaying from all of the following directly-connected sources:
- Oppo UDP-203
- Apple TV 4K
- Lumagen Radiance 2042 (itself processing sources including Verizon FiOS DVR and Oppo BDP-103)
(With the same sources, no problem yet with the replacement.)

You can measure it yourself if you still have a new series unit and see how it behaves. Set iris full open, enable DI mode A2, Set a 10% window size, then go through the patch values until you get to the point where the iris would end up fully open (it's a little after 50% for 2.4 gamma on my X7900). Back off so the iris once again closes. Then toggle the iris on/off while watching the measured value (and maybe the AC power consumption for good measure). Be interesting to see how a new series unit behaves. As I said one caveat of my measurements was that I'm in profile off so much of the built in colour management is disabled / bypassed.
Thanks for the detailed step. I will do this on my NX7. I only have a Spyder 5 pro, so the values wont be 100% accurate, but atleast they will be fine on a relative basis.

You're welcome. It doesn't matter for relative testing really, I'm sure Spyder is good enough to spot the difference. I didn't bother to set stuff up particularly well for this test and there are better meters I could have used but it was just a quick look with what was on the tripod at the time. I was surprised at the magnitude of the measured difference given how much folk labour over their calibrations; the extent of what I'd be throwing away if I did DI off - calibration - then enabled DI - is quite huge.

Ideally someone who has done an autocal at all the different iris positions would also have a look and see how that behaves, I believe that may make a difference. As I don't care much for the dynamic iris for non-colour fidelity issues I haven't bothered to see what the "several iris position autocal" does for it.

So I thought I would share some more observations since I got some seat time with the projector and we watched some movies on it.

I'll touch on the DI since it seems to be the current focus, I'm currently still using Auto-1. I think I may have seen hints of the yellowing phenomenon in Blade Runner 4K during the opening sequence. For me at least it isn't something I'm seeing that needs to be disabled or is somehow killing the viewing experience. It may be that my preference of slightly closing the iris for 4K to allow me to open it as the bulb ages is helping or my unit just isn't as hampered by it. I do find the DI on the NX7 to be less intrusive than RS520.

Bright corners continue to fade. I could easily see upper left and upper right in blank screens (lower corners a bit too) right out of the box and they were just noticeable on credits. The only one still really visible is the upper right at this point and then only on a totally black field. Hopefully as things continue to settle this will continue to fade.

The combination of the JVC with HDRPQ - auto tonemapping on - mapping level at 2 coupled with the UB820 Optimizer on and settings zero'd out is still a winner for me. The titles I played with metadata didn't seem to need any adjustment. The one Disney title I sampled, Avengers - Infinity War, needed tweaking (as expected). But I was able to use just the Panasonic controls to bring it in line with what I wanted. I ended up with +2 on the optimizer and -5 on the brightness for this particular title. So overall I'm very happy with this setup. I just go to one place to adjust titles that need it.

Titles watched: Blade Runner 4K UHD, The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey SD, Ready Player One 4K UHD, and clips from The Greatest Showman 4K UHD. I'll start out with The Hobbit Blu Ray. Although this is a 2K disc, it really looks like the upscaling in the Panasonic coupled with NX7 is somehow increasing details slightly. I'd never noticed the threadbare patches in Bilbo's jacket or the tear that runs down Gollum's cheek when Bilbo is deliberating killing him. There's an almost 3D depth to the image that we both commented on. I can't say whether this is due to the panel or the increased resolution, but it's definitely there. Blade Runner looked wonderful overall. The added detail was certainly apparent in the model/effects shots. The NX7 handles the film grain in the non-effects shots more naturally than the e-shift unit, making it less obtrusive. Ready Player One has the real world shots purposefully shot to look drab, but the sequences in The Oasis were breathtaking. Some of the details really popped compared to previous viewings. The last disc we popped in was The Greatest Showman. It was a beautiful title on the RS520 and I wasn't expecting it to wow us, but it did. The scene with the Queen where Barnum meets Jenny Lind had amazing color and detail. Just so natural and simply stunning. The scene where Lind sings for the audience was fantastic. The smallest jewels in her dress sparkled. The spotlight with its haloing was an amazing use of HDR. Even the dress on the Zendaya character in the audience showed detail and color we didn't have before. Again, this disc looked great on the RS520, but the NX7 took it to another level. One other thing the NX7 does better than any other projector I've seen that popped up in multiple discs is smoke/haze/mist. There's just a very natural way that this projector handles it. Very hard to explain, but easily seen.

So the million dollar question for e-shift owners is contrast. If you'd asked me this on day one with a 4 bright corners and little seat time with the unit I would've said that the RS520 was noticeably better. As I've dialed in the iris settings and the bulb has calmed a lot I would say that it's more of a wash at this point. I really feel that most owners of an e-shift unit won't find these lacking in comparison.

The NX7 is the 5th projector I've owned. I've had an Infocus IN76, Infocus X10, JVC RS46 and JVC RS520 prior to it. With the move to the RS46 I've always made it a point to evaluate in person the competition in the price bracket I was looking at in addition to reading professional reviews. I saw several examples of the Sonys 50/55ES, an Epson (1080UB I think) and an RS45 before jumping into an RS46. I went on a theater crawl and visited shops before settling on the RS520. So it was a bit nerve wracking to take the step to the NX7 sight unseen. There's certainly a tendency for people to want to reinforce their decisions and personal choices and I'm sure at some level I'm guilty of this. So I urge anyone on the fence to try to see one of these units for themselves. Nothing is perfect, but the overall image these units are capable of could be the best I've seen and certainly the best I've had in my home.

Do you know how to reproduce the problem? I never experienced it while gaming, in fact Madden has never looked better. I'm not even sure I encountered a problem using the Xbox cuz it was YouTube that caused the issue both times for me and I don't like how YouTube looks on the Xbox so it might've been the Roku the first time. I just got the Shield on Saturday and so far like it the best for streaming, but did get the blue lines while playing YT from it, and for sure I was going through the Denon both times I had issues. I wish the JVC had a soft restart feature that would keep the lamp on instead of requiring a complete shutdown for stuff like this (isn't powering off/on hard on the bulb?). Of course it would be better if a restart wasn't ever necessary and I suppose from JVC's perspective, adding that feature wouldn't make much sense.

Doesn't the fact that a hard restart corrects the problem suggest this should be firmware fixable? Anyway, I hope it's not a big deal. My NX7 seems fine otherwise.

YES! I answered my own question, or at least JVC appears to have.

I just got an email from my dealer who has conversed with JVC regarding this issue and they responded with the following:

"We are currently testing a FW fix for this issue. I would suggest the customer hold onto the projector and we should have a resolution soon."

I guess I'll hold off throwing the projector into the river.

I have been able to reproduce it 100% of the time with my Aquaman 4K Blu-ray on my xbox one x. Basically it happens past the end credits (select last scene, skip forward one chapter) on the third copyright warning that is black with white text. I also played the same thing with the normal Blu-ray and did not have this issue it only happened with the 4k video. I was hoping that somebody else had an Aquaman 4K Blu-ray they could try out to see if they also had the issue that was reproducible.


I found problems with 3 settings so far. 1) Low Latency On, CMD off, Motion Enhance Low 2) Low Latency On, CMD off, Motion Enhance off (actually turned green) 3) Low Latency Off, CMD off, Motion Enhance Low.

Nice work! At least we should be able to tell if a fix actually works. I was hoping not to have to watch hours of YouTube.

If it wasn't for a birthday and The Avengers this weekend, this might actually be worth driving across Nebraska for

Seriously though, really looking forward to everyone's thoughts and findings here.

Alright so played around with my unit some this weekend and settled on a couple of settings I had gleaned from the thread over the past several months but correct me if some of this has been adjusted in the last few weeks:

For 1080p content - use natural color mode with OOB settings unchanged for a pretty close presentation to good

4k/HDR:

For JVC:

~Brightness settings are usually falling between 0 and -3 but needs to be independently tested of course

~Use gamma of 2.2 with Panasonic profiles in the JVC

~Use auto tone mapping in the JVC

(I put all these settings under "user 1" and will name it later.)

For 820:

~Use Basic Luminance, along with HDR set to ON (NO HDR to SDR conversion) and HDR Optimizer also ON

~Set Panny 820 to YCC 4:2:2 12 bit, or auto

Be interesting to see how a new series unit behaves. As I said one caveat of my measurements was that I'm in profile off so much of the built in colour management is disabled / bypassed.

I'm still surprised by the claims that output power is being varied dynamically; I've seen this on DLPs (where it is usually accompanied by a tell-tale variation in fan speed in sympathy with the displayed content). It should be very easy to prove one way or another with an AC power meter. I'll drag one out later and look at my X7900 as I'm really intrigued. The lamps in the JVC change their spectrum quite a lot with output power (see high lamp vs low lamp differences in measured gamut) which would likely mean the gamut would get narrower as the lamp dimmed further.

I've had to explain to 2nd line JVC tech support in the past where the 2nd iris is located on the X7900, and having worked in CI product design for more than a few years I have been very often embarrassed by guff that "technical" sales folk have said about our products on the floor of a trade show. Until I see it and measure it, or see measurements, it didn't happen is my mantra when listening to folk who are perhaps note even one step removed from being marketroids...
Didn't see that you were varying the white patch level, I thought you were only varying the size. So gamma definitely plays a part. Drive power was what I was told for Auto 2, they were very specific that no gamma manipulation is done. I was surprised myself.

I don't have one of the new JVCs here at the moment to test anymore.

I can make no judgement on the new units as I'm unlikely to see one for long enough to try any of this any time soon, I was primarily interested in the yellowing as I was sure I'd noticed this in my brief DI use on the X7900.

I can see the no gamma manipulation statement from JVC two ways; one would be that there literally is no manipulation whatsoever (ie the iris shuts and light output of patches falls). That's clearly not the case on the X7900 in A2 as seen from my test at least.
Another way to interpret would be that there is always internal manipulation of the panel gamma to attempt to keep the levels where they should be more or less for a given input, but that in A1 there is an additional gamma tweak done to give the impression of more contrast (like a house curve). Or perhaps the temporal response of the DI mech is changed. I think those would all represent levels of detail of the operation that would never make it off the engineer's desk.

Anyway, as I say it is a shame there isn't more info on how these systems really work. I keep thinking it would be "fun" to try and devise something to do some in depth analysis of it and every time think "what's the point, it doesn't work well enough for me to actually care about how it is doing the job (badly)". That's part of the reason I'm particularly interested in how the new series are working. The new laser dimming units and the Christie beast thing really pique my interest though.

Hello!

I've got RS3000 for replace my old Sony VW1100.

JVC is noticeable sharper, brighter, higher contrast and better black levels, High lamp mode are quieter than the same at the VW1100.
Overall it is substantial improvment.

But also the RS3000 have some problems - horizontal streaking, white turn to yellow when using DI, time to time strange blue vertical lines appears through the all visible screen and fixes only by restarting the device (most annoying defect).

Still waiting that my dealer have to say about that issue(

Yea I think I ended up at +2 on the panny optimizer using the basic luminance setting on the JVC and it cleaned it up nicely.

I can't seem to play 4K youtube videos on the Shield at all. I always get an "out of range" error that has to be fixed by changing inputs.

I guess I shouldn't say "at all" as if I let the video continue to play and do the input switching, it will show up once it is back to the correct input. Of course, once I try to go back to the main youtube screen after this, it again goes to an "out of range" error. I haven't had any problems with youtube on my XBox One S.

Aquaman does look very good on 4K UHD and is much much easier to stomach than something like Lucy.

I was hoping that somebody else had an Aquaman 4K Blu-ray they could try out to see if they also had the issue that was reproducible.


I found problems with 3 settings so far. 1) Low Latency On, CMD off, Motion Enhance Low 2) Low Latency On, CMD off, Motion Enhance off (actually turned green) 3) Low Latency Off, CMD off, Motion Enhance Low.
I have it...though I'm not sure I want to introduce a problem I've never seen before.

I would sure hope you would not need one for a while

Oh come on! I get the impression this problem might not occur on all units, so yours might be fine. Do it for science!

I didn't notice this on the sony with a cheaper mount, but I assume it is an artifact of the rs1000 weighing twice as much and being longer. The sliding bracket isn't the prettiest thing in the world, but with my ceiling closed and I'm near back of room I wanted to get the PJ back to the minimum from the wall (it's about 10" and the book says 8"). Couple of initial findings:

- Red+Blue both needed pixel shift of 2 (I forget which direction).

- I need new cables because I cannot get devices to select 4k+60hz+HDR. I ordered fiber cables. I'm going to try to run them through the wall (instead of an ugly guide I have on the ceiling now).

- If the ROKU selects 4k+30hz+HDR (because of my old cables) it is a pain in the butt. Don't run your roku that way. 1st because if you don't have 60hz selected Netflix won't do 4k, but also, the screen display switches a lot when you have this setting. The constant switching with an annoying delay was, well, annoying. 4k+60Hz (no HDR) is much more stable if that's all you can get. Hopefuly 4k+HDR+60hz with the new cables will be the same.

- The RS1000 doesn't seem to have BT.2020 support, but with HDR enabled the colors are amazing.

- I do believe I need to upgrade my screen (~16 years old). I think the "rough" surface is probably interfering with the 4k and the surface should be more smooth. Plain white paper seems to look sharper but I need to get some screen samples. Will shop for a 2.35:1.

- It came with firmware 2.0.4. On the jvc site I see only 2.0.1, any idea what is in the update?

- In case you didn't see it, the bulb offer was extended to end of april so I need to send that in.

set your roku to 4k/24 not 4k/30 and it shoudnt have to change so much after.

I don’t think it’s the projector issue. It sounded like a source issue. Like what you guys described, a power cycle is required to get back to normal picture.

As a matter of fact, I have 2 episodes of “green stripes” appearing and it ONLY happens when I m using nVidia Shield TV 4K with android TV OS. It only happened to me twice and I’m happy to say that after playing with some settings on the NVidia Shield TV, so far so good. I’ve clocked 214hrs for my NX7 so far.

It is hard to replicate the “problem” since it did not happen ever since. So it’s not consistent making it harder for the JVC engineers to verify.
