It sounds like you just were not accepting JVC's statement. You can have three straight with the frame and the fourth side off and yes indeed that can be setup. You keep saying bowed. Was line curved or angled? If angled, like I suspect, then JVC was probably correct in telling you that it was a setup issue.Sorry about that. Projector wise, I'm probably not going to go over 6 grand. I probably won't spend enough time watching movies or sports
in the HT room to warrant spending more than that, because I have a huge Lanai outside with motorized screens that can drop down and that area has a 75" TV, bar, and fireplace too. Its capable of year round use.
Anyways...the RS2000 looks to be more than I want to spend. With the lack of 4K programming, I'm wondering if I should look at the RS540 (if its even available anymore) or roll the dice on the 1000?
As far as the original RS400...the bow was in the bottom of the picture. Tops and sides were perfectly parallel, bottom center bowed upwards.
JVC told me it was my screen. Checked with laser levels, checked with 10' manual levels. Perfect. Then JVC said projector was off center. Checked with laser, checked manually with digital tape measures. Perfect. Then they said my ceiling was not level. Um, ok.
I build million dollar homes, and have thousands of dollars in layout tools. It wasn't the setup. But JVC had a problem understanding that. Its fine, its in the past...but I am a bit gun-shy because of the lack of tech support I received from them. Its almost like they think their product is incapable of having issues.
But, I still thought the picture looked great, especially with sports.
