My dealer says JVC have told him it's a hardware limitation, but there's nothing in the specs or manual that list this as an issue, unlike say certain bit depths / per pixel only supported at certain refresh rates, so hopefully this is something they can fix still. Even the Specifications table in the manual says "During 3D playback the display resolution is 4096x2160" as a footnote to indicate you cant use 8k eshift but no other riders. The Anamorphic C description has no riders, just saying it is stretched using full 4096 pixel width. The only place I've since found mentioning the limitation is the Panamorph site (good work by them).
Thanks for the reply.
This is the first I've heard of the 6% scaling error *still* being present with the new Anamorphic Modes - are you sure about this? Shawn Kelly's website refers to this, as that was the reality until recently, but indicates that the new firmware would provide proper scaling.
The devil is in the details, so:
1. When you're watching 16:9 3D content, I assume you would use Anamorphic Mode D, but correct me if I'm wrong. I would expect that the scaling would be correct for the 3D content, as it is for the 2D 16:9 content, but I need confirmation that this either does scale correctly, or doesn't.
2. When you're watching 2.35:1 3D content (there's less content like this, but there are many, such as Gravity), I assume you would use Anamorphic Mode C, as you would for 2D content, correct? Is the scaling correct here, or in other words, does it fill a scope screen horizontally and vertically, while maintaining the original aspect ratio?
I'm really hoping JVC has fully resolved this to use the DCR lens for both 16:9 and 2.35:1 3D content.
