If anyone's interested, while doing some scripting on my system, I whipped up a quick little utility to control your JVC projector over your network from your windows PC. It's a quick command line utility that allows you to pass in the 2 digit remote control code and it will send it via network commands. List of all commands are included in the download file as well as source code.

You can download it here if you want it: http://www.hifiandtheater.com/jvccontrol-jvc-projector-ip-control-app/

Usage:
Run from command line passing the 2 digit command to execute.
JvcControl {Command}

Example: to switch to USER1:
JvcControl 6C

Setup:
Connect your projector to the network and enter its IP address into the
file JvcControlIp.txt which should be in the same folder as JvcControl.exe.

For help connecting your projector to your network see the manual. But
it’s advised to set the projector to a static IP address or assign it a
static IP in the router’s DHCP routing table. Verify connection to the
projector in command prompt using “ping” command. If you cannot ping
the projector, then you cannot communicate with it.
ping 192.168.1.10

I have updated to v1.1 on the download link. It now will auto detect the IP address if you run it without any commands. JvcControlIp.txt is no longer required and projector should be automatically found. You can still override this behavior and create a JvcControlIp.txt and enter your IP manually if the auto detection fails.

Did you forget to include the source code in 1.1 zip?

I'd like to port this to Linux for my own use and the source code would be useful.

Thanks!
If you have the ability to use Python consider grabbing the Arve tools:
https://github.com/arvehj/jvcprojectortools
JVC_command, jvc_network and jvc_protocol.py implement a very complete 2 way interface for controlling and getting information out of a JVC projector.

Hi markmon1,

I'm trying to use this with my JVC projector and MadVR. I would like to the JVC projector to auto switch to SDR mode when non-HDR files (e.g. 1080p) are played and to switch to my HDR profile when I play 4k files. Can you please share how I can get this setup? I would appreciate any help as I'm new to this.

Thanks
Are these just video inputs like user1, natural, cinema etc? If so this is easy to do with jvccontrol. Which projector do you have?

Hey markmon1

I have tried your JvcControl utility but cannot make it change via madVR.
I want your utility to switch to 3 different profiles in madVR.
User 1 = bt.709, User 2 = b.2020 and User 3 = 3D. All profiles are working in madVR but the madVR command line doesn't change the user profile
I can ping my projector which is Jvc N5B and I can also get your utility to switch my Jvs N5B to user 1, 2 and 3 when I run it via Windows 10 run app.
But as soon as I add the commands to madVR, nothing happens.
I have tried to have your utility lying in the root of my c: drive and I have also tried to put the program into my madVR folder, but nothing happens.
Any help that can solve the problem is very much welcomed

Nice work on this.

I'm currently looking for a better way to turn on and off my Sony projector which for the moment doesn't have a ethernet cable running to it. So that's rather a tangent but I see how useful this is to people who would need or want it. Things like smart switches can't be used well with projectors because they simply cut the power without letting the PJ do it's cool down routine.

I previously used home bridge and Harmony Hub to add the capability to Siri directly this was great but the newest beta version of IOS messed this up for me and it's back to the drawing board so to speak.

Yesterday I also tried to use Jvc Control. To switch my picture mode. It also switches, but only once. Tonight I will try a bat. with delay.

Perhaps you can paste all your madVR scripts you use to launch it. I know someone else did get this working inside madVR.

Without ethernet control, you can get a USBUIRT and have the PC send IR commands to your projector. I use to operate my 285ES this way before I ran the network cable.

I'd need a lot more details on this if you're looking for help. What you're doing, how you're launching it, paste your script etc.

Well I have several profiles in Madvr. Eg. One for HDR and one for SDR.
I generated two .bat files. HDR and SDR. In these files are the commands. It was important to delay so that the projector is done with the frequency adjustment until the command works. I have set a timeout of 10 seconds before that.
I do not speak English well so google Translate has to help out.

You mean to make sure that the projector is not in the middle of resyncing HDMI because madVR changes the display?
What did you use to delay?

I just added into jvccontrol the ability to use a sleep at the end of any command. So:

JvcControl Lens1 sleep 10
