Many also use the Ruipro Fiber HDMI cable that is available on amazon.
At current pricing I would probably get the RUIPRO too, but there was a bizarre pile of coupons at one point on these cables below. A friend of mine had used one so I ordered them. One of the four coupons was BOGO so I got two 50ft for $62 total which is crazy cheap, but they have worked great so far.

What gamma settings are you guys using? I had mine on Cinema 1 but noticed it’s lacking contrast and adds some grain to low light scenes. Cinema 2 is too dark and everybody looks sun tanned. Should I use 2.2 or 2.4?

For SDR I'm using 2.4. HDR I'm using HDR PQ.

Does anyone know what gamma THX is using?

It is just labeled as THX but is it 2.2, 2.3, 2.4?

Just wondering how it will be effected by a gamma autocal.

No wonder no one can get their projectors! You're approaching double digits on the replacement PJ count.

My NX9 DI is NOT silent, but neither is its fan in high lamp mode. It's may change some when I mount it in its final ceiling location yet (I first want to add cross bracing before mounting), but it is as far back as it's going to be, so ceiling mounting will only involve an elevation and orientation change (it's currently on a table, so closer to ear level).

I will do some A/B with DI on and off. Frankly, before I turned on the DI I was plenty happy with black levels; didn't know it was off until I looked in the menu. I'm perfectly pleased with my NX9 with its DI noise. This is not a deal breaker. The fan noise bothers me more, as it's louder and constant.

Either way, I will be building a hush box to solve both issues.

Thanks for the response. You don’t find 2.4 too dark at any point?

I haven't yet, but this unit is not calibrated. Honestly most content has been 4K, but the first Hobbit (2K) didn't feel crushed in Gollum's cave at 2.4.

From what I understand, you also have to do a "Factory Reset" after installing 2.05 to fix the problem. If you asked for 2.05 specifically to fix the vertical lines, they should have told you this. Have you done this?

(I'm not positive that the "Factory Reset" in the regular menu will do it. It's possible that it has to be done from the Service Menu. Ask whoever sent you 2.05.)
Spoke with JVC engineers. No factory reset needed with 2.05. Just do normal firmware upgrade.

I found that keeping the room cooler significantly lowers the sound of the fan. Apparently the fan is set up to run at higher speed if the temperature rises. So if you keep the room cool you can actually get the fan to run at a slower speed that is a lot quieter.

Well, this was specifically with regard to the vertical lines problem and the instructions that came with the 2.05 fix for that specific problem said to do a factory reset.

In any case there are 2 reports that it didn't fix the problem even after a factory reset.

So what are you saying? That you applied the 2.05 firmware without a factory reset and it fixed it? If so, how long have you gone without seeing the problem? (Sometimes I can go several days without seeing it, so I would have to go several weeks before I would say that the problem is fixed.)

There may actually be two different problems: 1) vertical lines with no picture visible; 2) blue or green vertical lines but with the picture still visible (which is the one that I see). Which one did you have?

There has been conflicting information posted quoting JVC sources, so it's hard to determine what is right. Certainly if one JVC source supplies the firmware with specific written instructions to do a factory reset and another says that the factory reset is not necessary, there's something wrong somewhere.

Mine has source in background with blue vert. Not sure if it fixed my projector as I only use it about 2hrs Max a week. Just reporting what the jvc engineer emailed me.

I can confirm that i was advised by JVC to do factory reset.....I'm going on 15hrs no lines but that doesn't mean the problem is fixed.

Screen will be a elunevision AT 4k 1.0 gain electric.

So, I can either go with a 120" or a 135". Im a bit worried the 135" wont be all that bright from 20 feel away. This will be a 16x9 screen as its my gaming room as well.

Im sure I should just go with the 135 and be done but I dont want a dim screen. Currently with a 108" and its plenty bright enough with my 1.1 elunevision 4k reference.
Any thoughts?
135" can be plenty brightly lit by an NX series projector. You can probably go a little bigger. Also, if your room is only 13.5 feet wide but 9.5 feet tall, you probably can get away with a higher screen and not sacrificing the quality hit it takes to go AT.

Something else to consider, since your wall is so tall. You could put a center channel centered directly above and below your screen which would center the sound on the middle of your screen and still avoid being AT.

Nope, can’t be done. The projector has to scale to 4K to address all of the pixels on the imaging chips.

I've been thinking of a bunch of different options. My current center is a custom JTR 210, so I'd either have to get Jeff to make me another one, or get something else... at this point with the money thats gonna be flying everywhere, the 4K CDN to build another center would suck... as would buying something new.
I'm willing to take a bit of a hit in brightness going with the AT but worry it will be too much of a hit and no stores locally have the JVC's up for Demos...

When I watched GOT last night there were several scenes which were at night with flaming torches. The projector is behind me on the ceiling, however, I could see a strong beam of light from the projector coming over my seating position to the screen for the flaming torches. It was distracting watching the content seeing a beam of light go towards the screen.

I’ve not noticed it before when I was projecting onto a temporary screen, however now I’m projecting onto Stewart StudioTek 130 G3.

Scenes in daylight we’re fine.

Is this normal or do I need to adjust something?

Sorry for the noob question.

I'll have to check that out. My theater isn't completely done yet, so I've only turned on the A/C for one of my viewing sessions; I wasn't paying attention but next time I will. Thanks!

I suggest a HEPA filter. Beams of light in a vacuum should be invisible, nearly invisible in air. You probably have particles of dust or haze.

Have not finalized, but have a prelim design. It was based on the PJ sitting in the box; now with the Chief mount, the hush box will be built around the mounted PJ.

Something else to consider, since your wall is so tall. You could put a center channel centered directly above and below your screen which would center the sound on the middle of your screen and still avoid being AT.
What would be the sacrifice using an AT screen with this projector?

Well, with 1080p 3D bluray i have a strange "issue". Sometimes (actually, very often) when the movie start there is blank space all around the image, something like a "direct video" mode with no upscaling. I use the zoom function, changin' to auto or native will fill the screen (i have set 2 memory banks for auto and zoom), at least "most" of the screen since in auto/native you have some lateral blank space that you have to zoom out.
Going back and forth from auto/native to zoom sometimes fixes the beahviour and i have the use of full panel even with 3D source and zoom mode.

Anyone experienced this?
