So I've had my RS2000 for a year now and absolutely love it. I finally decided to take the plunge and get a Panamorph DCR lens. All I can say is.......WOW!!!! I can't wait to get it calibrated in the near future. Thanks, Mike!!!!

Yes, it can be done, but realistically, this should never be done in a network. As the network grows, you risk having conflicts in IP addresses. The proper way to set a manual IP is to enable DHCP and then configure a static IP address in the router. The effect is the same, but the benefit is you have all your IP addresses in one location and should not get any devices assigned to the same IP that way. There have been multiple times in this thread alone where a person has had IP control issues and had static IP set with a conflicting IP address on his network.

I'm running a network analyzer on an iPad it is very useful to sniff out ip addresses and connected devices in the local network.

I use it to ping the projector if for some reason JVC Autocal fails to connect to the projector. After a ping the connection check returns connection ok and there is no need to power cycle the projector.

Stereo is simply Multichannel light.

I utilize 4K ATV for most of my movies, unless playing on the Oppo w/ disc. However, I find Netflix is better, IMHO, played on my XboneX, sounds better (Atmos) and movies that are 4K are actually 4K when played, unlike ATV, which I believe throttles bandwidth during peak viewing times.

Peace and blessings,

Yup it is awesome....Next get a Lumagen and see how you never need to touch the projector controls with aspect ratios etc and has good DTM. Not quite as good as MadVR PC version but close enough.

Enjoy.....

What are the optimal settings for this projector (menu options and settings etc), anything I need to set on the Marantz processor?

I know this has been discussed but I am struggling to find it in this forum. Appreciate the help fellow NX7 owners!

Thanks!
Let you projector break in and get some hours on it before calibrating.

Make sure you are just passing through the Marantz for video.

You primarily going to use native and Frame Adapt for the video. Every room is different so don't just plug in some numbers from someone else. Mine will be different than yours.

Play a little with the Manual Iris in Native mode for contrast and see where you like it for a balance of light output to contrast.

You really should not mess with the color controls without some calibration equipment to know where you are with it.
Just write down where everything is before you mess with it and you should be fine.

Just have fun and be amazed!

The problem with using pass through with a Marantz/Dennon receiver is that you can't access the reciver setup to make any changes. I would be sure that you turn upscailing off on the receiver and not limit HDMI output resolution. If you set it that way you can access the other receiver controls.

Fair enough. Don't think I can justify the NX7 in my room at 50% extra cost (locally. There are other options I'm considering where the difference is not as big). I'd rather put that towards the MadVR Envy when it becomes available.

You can still access setup through mobile app or web interface though.

That is true but is there any reason to use pass through since you can turn off upscaling and adjust other settings without using passthrough.

Be mad in my opinion to spend on madvr at expense of projector. It won’t make an epson into a jvc ! The dynamic tone mapping is that good on jvc n5/n7 for most folks I’d save the cash. For me hasn’t put foot wrong. Set forget and chucked wide variety of material of various sources.

Re light control it will impact ALL projectors. If not directly on screen unlikely to impact severely. We have doors to our room we close off. Picture doesn’t go to ***** just because someone turns light on in adjoining room 🙂

My marantz av8802a is working just fine in the path to n7 I’ve not touched any video settings they are as factory preset. See no reason to 🙂

Think something got lost in communication there. The NX7 is 50% more than the NX5 for me where I live. Given my room, I suspect I might not really see the difference in contrast between the 2 units and may as well save the cash with an eye towards the Envy.

Which is why I'm leaning towards the JVC, TBH. Even if not the levels of a dedicated video processor, DTM seems to be good enough to watch HDR content. I do value the convenience of set and forget for all input/material sources.

Fair. Should be able to avoid light directly on screen.

this is the problem with perceptions though, people say wont not the difference but as i mentioned in my non dedicated room, i have noticed every single projector upgrade done so far for the better

its a truly amazing projector !

this is top gun on uhd ...though a movie from vhs era ... just a hand held screen shot. camera doesnt even capture the detail abound and can see with own eyes but yeah this is possible even in a non dedicated room !


truly mind boggling what these jvc capable off !

Not denying that. The point of diminishing returns is different for different folks, though. And without the possibility of a demo, some amount of guesswork based on other people's experiences is all I have to fall back upon.

yes definitely we all ha e to decide whats best for ourselves, . all projectors talking about are quite popular for their own reasons ...

re my screen its an australian brand screen technics. 1.1 gain. i'm one of those running a relatively small screen ... 92" 16:9 but am viewing at bang on THX spec (2.8m) for this screen size for immersion. so am well and truly resolving 2k and also getting some benefits of 4k the good thing with the smaller size as well is that i can happily run on low lamp an still easily achieve the 100 nits needed to do HDR justice

Well, here's my $0.02 again. The NX-5 (returned due to Blue lines) is no slouch, however, the NX-7 (upgrade from NX-5) is next level up, DTM is a champion. I run the projector on low lamp (w/ DCR), based on my short throw of 1.4.1, which works out well for me. I got a great deal because of the NX-5 return and the inconvenience, on the NX-7/DCR lens. This was one of the best combos in my ~25 yr history with HT. Did I want to spend that much $$$? No sir, but I have no regrets, as sometimes I may, because of financial compromise.

Next, the Stewart 130 G4 2:40, but I need to complete a Home project, therefore, I may have to delay this purchase, unfortunately. If you can afford the JVC NX-7, go for it, IMHO, the diminishing returns are with the JVC NX-9, which is twice the cost of the NX-7. Don't get it twisted, if I could have afforded the NX-9, I probably would have done it, but I've heard that upgrade is incremental. Hope this helps someone in their quest.

Peace and blessings,

Azeke

So when you did side by side testing with the NX7 and the Nx9 you found it the same ?

God Bless!.
A good way to test your Iris on your projector is on the Spears and Munsil disc. Go to Video processing then select Luminance Loading. Don't stare directly at the lens but on an angle and you can actually see the Iris at work

No Franin, I didn't test NX7 and NX9, only the NX5 and NX7 and that is based on a visual comparison experience, in my HT room (light controlled). The NX9 is a personal opinion/evaluation, based on my google/YouTube research, and a few viewings at Magnolia, which happen to be on display. I felt that the DCR lens and NX7 was better bang for my buck, because I couldn't really afford the NX9 and the DCR lens combo (~50% cost increase), I wish I could .

i may be wrong but I would think that one could see a bigger difference between the NX7 & NX9 on a larger screen. The NX5/NX7 lens is still quite good but as we all know good lenses are expensive. That being said there are some great lower cost lenses and All JVC projector lenses are made out of glass.

If you buy an NX9 / RS3000, you get a free spare lamp right now.

But today is the last day JVC is offering the free lamp, unless they decide to carry over to next month.

Free lamp on RS3000 does carry through for July.

This was one of the best combos in my ~25 yr history with HT. Did I want to spend that much $$$? No sir, but I have no regrets, as sometimes I may, because of financial compromise.

Next, the Stewart 130 G4 2:40, but I need to complete a Home project, therefore, I may have to delay this purchase, unfortunately. If you can afford the JVC NX-7, go for it, IMHO, the diminishing returns are with the JVC NX-9, which is twice the cost of the NX-7. Don't get it twisted, if I could have afforded the NX-9, I probably would have done it, but I've heard that upgrade is incremental. Hope this helps someone in their quest.

Peace and blessings,
