Contacted JVC today and was advised to connect the NVIDIA shield directly to the NX7 and bypass my AVR ( Marantz SR6013) and to send it to a local authorized repairer to diagnose it it reoccurs.
I updated my FW from 2.04 to 2.07 today.
As a first time owner of a projector which has the blue/green vertical bar issue, I am optimistic that JVC will solve the issue ( either FW or worse case replacement )
I have 135 hours clocked and have decided to go ahead with calibration on Friday as I am very happy with the picture.
It's outstanding. Maybe its because its my first projector but I am really enjoying it.
A power cycle is embarrassing but not the end of the world provided it's a rare occurrence with no long term damage to the device.
Its a really silly thing to say but no matter how much I enjoy the projector it still bothers me.
Am I upset with issue? YES!
Am I happy with the projector ? YES!
Is this issue currently a deal breaker for me? Surprisingly, I have to say No
While it's value for money from a picture per $ perspective you still cannot avoid the fact that it's still expensive from an absolute $ value.
After-all, it is residing in the " Digital Hi-End Projector" section and thus a certain standard of reliability and after sales support is expected.
