I desperately need a new pj and had to decide between the JVC NX 5/7 or the 6050UB.
I ended up buying the Epson 6050UB (TW9400) instead of a JVC NX5/7 because it is brighter, cheaper lamp & fits our needs and non dedicated HT multi purpose, non "bat cave" room better than the NX series without $$$ breaking the bank
I ordered the Epson 6050UB over a month ago, but because of the "coronavirus" delivery got pushed back to ...? Anyway, I finally got word from my authorized Epson dealer that it is finally in route and he will hand deliver it sometime this week.
This is a my dilemma/problem: Because we have been ordered to "shelter in place" due to the CV, my dealer can't/won't come in and install our new 6050UB because he is in the high risk age group (as am I). That's not a big deal, I can hang it, however he was going to also "align the panels", check/align the pj's "uniformity" and do an "initial calibration" before the CV messed everything up. Anyway, I've never done any of this before.
Does anyone have any tips on "aligning" the red and blue panels, and on checking/correcting picture "uniformity on the Epson 6050UB/5050UB (9400/7400)?
Most important question: I have a 100 inch 16/9, 1.2 gain ALR STEWART Firehawk SST screen. My ceiling mounted Epson 6050UB will be a little over 12 feet throw distance from the screen.
Does anyone have any HDR, SDR settings/calibration advice you have found that works well that you can give me?
Do you know where I can find any "custom settings" for the 6050UB/9400 that others have created? I know they are probably posted somewhere, but the owner thread posts are enormous and I have no idea where to find these answers.
Or any free online calibration programs/tools that would prove helpful? I can't afford a new Speers and Muncile UHD calibration disk at the moment. All I have is a rudimentary calibration program on a Disney Blu-ray disk.
If so, I would greatly appreciate it if you could share them with me because I have no idea how long we will be in "shelter in place" lock down, and since we don't have a TV, the projector is our only form of entertainment and I would like it to perform as well as possible under these trying circumstances in light of not being able to have our new Epson 6050UB professionally calibrated.
Feel free to PM me, or post your answers. I look forward to your reply and thanks in advance for your help and guidance regarding the above.
Everyone please take care and stay safe.
