@coderguy - OK, cheers, mate! EDIT: Whoops, would be 8" down. So 4 on the sides?


K, I still have yet to dive into reviews, and the AVS thread too.

EDIT - Deleted price discussion. Did not know it was not allowed....

I can buy this from AVS, no?

The Carada has a really nice 3.5" to 4" frame with excellent black-out material. Nothing shows on it.

I could sell the screen, yes. Even give my current setup to a friend if someone has the room...
The height of the 144" screen is 55.6" and 132.8" width.
The height of the 139.7" screen is 53.2" and 127.2" width.
The difference is 2.4" (total) vertical and 5.6" horizontal.
Keep in mind that this may not be accurate to the mm and there may be some variance as coderguy mentioned.

If you want to do the math yourself use this site: http://screen-size.info/
Just input 2.39 and 1 in the Aspect Ratio boxes and only one value in any of boxes below, and the rest will auto populate.

Velvet tapes are dark and can absorb light, but if that is not enough panels can be made with even darker velvet.
I'm not too familiar with these tapes but I do know that Carl's (screen manufacturer) makes velvet tapes:
https://www.carlofet.com/shop/black-felt-tape

The thread where this is being discussed was posted above, but here it is again, linked to a few types of velvet:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-di...l#post58225900

Gluing velvet directly to the screen might not be the best idea.

@HudsonK
We are not allowed to discuss pricing in here, you can create a thread in the Great Found Deals section, though not many people will discuss JVC pricing in general. Those are going to be from unauthorized dealers most likely. Yes, I would probably from AVS.

I'm still debating a scope screen vs a 16:9 screen. The documentary discs are absolutely amazing. Seven Wonders of the World, Turtle Oddessy, and Planet Earth are just amazing but do not know how the experience will be. It's tough.

It's not me that cares, it's the mods, I'm just noting that when they see pricing stuff sometimes they move the thread or delete the post. You might want to edit it out.

Do the motorized masking, that's the end-all-be-all. You can do it like Markmon1 did it if you want 16:9, you can even do 4-way motorized masking.
However, a scope screen is definitely easier to do motorized masking than a 16:9, as the horizontal movement is simpler for actuators.

I would get the projector and see how much of the screen you can fill. be sure and use zoom on the RS2000. Then you can decide if you want to mask off the screen or look for ways to extend the throw. If you just need two or three inches, you could do a cutout in the wall. I did this for my JVC RS4500.

@Mike Garrett - Thank you, Mike! I sent a message from the contact page on AVS regarding the PJ and a couple of questions. Is it appropriate to speak with you about purchasing this model? I see your email, and mine is [email protected].

I might consider that. Thanks

Woohoo! I just ordered the JVC RS2000 from Mike at AVS! Soooo pumped.

Need a little advice for a 4k blu ray player. I stumbled upon people raving about the Panasonic UB820 and UB9000 player for projectors with its great processing and HDR support. Am I a go on that? Or would you guys recommend anything else?

Mike said I can pick up the UB9000 through them.

Cheers!

I own the 820. It is a great player. I would buy the 420 at this time. The 820 adds Dolby Vision. Not needed for a projector. The 9000 has the build quality of an Oppo with some upgrades for audiophiles. The 9000 also has the ability to set the nits for the player at 350. The lowest the 420 and 820 can be set is 500 nits. With the dynamic tone mapping of the JVC projector I don't believe the nits setting makes that much of a difference. With projectors that have just static tone mapping the nits setting can be a great HDR performance enhancer. I would save yourself the money and buy some more 4K discs. Just my opinion.

Hi guys,

I ordered 73 4k movies the past couple of nights. Woohoo!

I got a bunch today and realise I messed up! I accidentally bought two of The Martian, and two of The Revenant.

If any of you who helped here do not have these movies, or want one, give me a pm. I will send them off to you for free. I will also accept anyone else who reads this, but if I hear from helpers in here they will get first dibs. I wanted to do this before I go post in the video section, which is where it belongs. I am sure I will get takers there.

Cheers!

Hudson

Very kind and generous of you. I have both. Great HDR presentation on both . One for natural highlights like sun and snow and fire. The other for great man made highlights lighting lasers and computer screens.

Honestly you will be blown away by both of them with your new setup. Blown away. Better than local multiplex. Way better.

I know I am awful. LOL. I am living vicariously through you. I own the Epson 6050 but I really want to upgrade to the JVC NX7 but wife would probably divorce me. LOL . So I have to wait. I am really excited for you. Is that weird? LOL.

@skylarlove1999 No, it's not weird. I would feel the same in your shoes, hah. But man...my projector is so much worse than your current one. Start saving, man! In the mattress if you have to! LOL. I will definitely give you a message when I'm set up, and maybe a pic of my space.

Spend the money you would spend on the smaller screen to get a horizontal expansion anamorphic lens and then you do not need to change screen size.

Edit: I somehow missed a page of this thread. You made a good decision anyway!

@skylarlove1999 - it did! It's sitting in the box. I had to run out. But I just got home a while ago. My UB9000 Panny arrived too. Time to carry downstairs and have a look. =)

I have to do a fair bit of work to set it up. A friend is going to help cut a hole in my back wall to mount the PJ on a shelf in my unfinished basement area behind my HT. I am very lucky I am able to do this and fill my screen. I also have a 2.35:1 screen, not 2.39:1...I misremembered that. So getting back further is even more important so 2.39's and 2.40's fit properly.

BTW, another big thank you to @Mike Garrett . He was able to help with so many questions I had. And my 4k player and PJ came so fast, and the boxes in perfect condition. Buy from AVS, people.

Ok, unboxing time!
