Anyway, the expenses add quiet a bit, but what if my Geneva colleague and I (from Basel) pool for that together, just one trip.
Since he is the European Lumagen distributor he is the perfect choice!

Hey guys I have a radiance pro and I'm curious is this supposed to run so hot? btw I am loving it so far. Especially since I've upgrade all my hdmi cables. I was have a pink screen issue and audio drop outs. Seems all good now

Well, there's another one in Germany, Michael Schiffers from www.cinemike.de. At least he's the one I got my Lumagen from (and all my other stuff as well) and he really helped me squeeze the last bit of picture quality out of my setup.
Highly recommended!

Be very careful to allow plenty of airflow from the bottom of the unit as the fan draws air from the bottom for cooling, the unit does make a lot of heat, if the unit gets too hot it will automatically shut down.

Hi I've got the Oppo 203 however the Panasonic 820 is now the better 4K player due to the superior tone mapping and no issues with BT2020 output, unlike the Oppo's BT2020 issues.
Although none of this matters when using the Lumagen for tone mapping correct?

Is there a beginners guide for basic calibration of a 4K Projector with Lumagen Pro using Lightspace yet? When I say beginner I mean starting from the beginning, i.e. you've taken the projector out of the box..

thanks

Yes 3m, one of my runs is 3m, I can’t tell the difference between that and the 2m. Shorter than 2m may give you reflection issues.

So am I, but I've just checked and I'm still on 011119, so I might just update to 042119 and see what issues (if any) come up with the new one and then update in a month or so. I haven't used my X7500 since about March, so I'm mostly just using my Pro to downscale/convert to SDR 4K Netflix content to my 1080p TV.

How difficult is a Lumagen Pro to setup for a JVC RS2000 projector? It seems like from reading here this is a fairly complex process vs just turning on HDR optimizer on the Panasonic player? I assume the Lumagen results are a lot better though? If I have already auto calibrated the projector are 3d luts necessary on the Lumagen or optional (with improved results)? I have owned Lumagen's for years so I have no issue working with them, just wondering how complex the HDR setup is?

I would say it depends on how much you want to dig into. In my opinion, the default settings out of the box give a damn good result. You can always tweak over time at your leisure.

IMO: I also have an JVC rs2000 and the lumagen dynamic tone mapping is significantly better than my panasonic ub820, plus it works on all sources. Theres no way I could ever do without it now for HDR sources.

Setup wasnt too difficult after reading through this thread and emailing setup questions to lumagen. As a noob to lumagen, I had it all setup within a day or two.

Ive also gotten great calibration results with the lumagen and my id3 and chromapure auto calibration, although I cant say how it compares to the JVC autocal as Ive never done it before.

To me, a lumagen or MadVr is a must own if your going to watch alot of HDR as I feel like it looks that much better

Do you set the Lumagen to output SDR2020 so the JVC doesn't do any tone mapping? Will the Lumagen automatically output Rec 709 for Blu and 2020 for HDR?

Did you have success using chromapure to perform a 3D LUT calibration?

I couldn’t get it to work so I had to do only 1D LUT.

Thanks.
