I have the 590 and have been using it with great success with an Elite Screens 115" 2.35:1 Sable 2 with the CineWhite screen. My bsmt theater room is rectangle 14' by 22'. I have the projector set on a shelf about 14-16 feet from the screen. I have an Elite 138" 2.35:1 Lunette 2 CineWhite on order as I have always wanted a curved screen like my favorite theater of all time...the long gone Meadowlark Cinerama in Edmonton.

I don't think I will have any issues as the JVC puts out a ton on light right now...I think I will have to move the projector back a few more feet per the Projection Central calculator. I would like to get comments from people here with more expertise with projectors as I am not an expert in this area. Will there be any issues to consider?

My guess is you will be fine. You will lose some brightness which might affect HDR more - what are you using for tone mapping? However, if I were in your shoes, I would probably opt for the larger screen if I had a room that big. Also, check out the black theater thread to maximize your room if you haven't already.

Hi David,
Thank you for your response. I found the 590 unusable for 4k hdr as it was too dark, that is until I got my Panasonic 820 with the slider set at +8-+10 or so. After the Panasonic addition hdr 4k movies are fantastic...color, brightness etc. Yes, I also need to darken my room and soundproof etc...I have looked at that thread many times and have no doubt it will increase the already fantastic picture of the 590.

The 590 has a slider for the brightness, called Picture Tone.

Also be sure to use SDR 2020 on the JVC with the 820 if you aren't already. Calibration is really crucial too, so take a look at that JVC cal thread - or get a good pro out like Chad B (highly recommended). All of of that in combination of treating your room will help a lot. +8 or +10 on the 820 slider is going to clip highlights more, but if you really need the brightness, you might not a have a choice but treating room is really huge.

I've only recall hearing the issue from you two guys. I've got almost 2200 hours on my RS440, purchased in fall of 2017. No issues.
JVC fixed the pink issue on my projector. The main light engine thingy had to be ordered from Japan to replace it. I was told by the technician that if this had happened outside of warranty it would have been cheaper to buy a new projector. That matches what I experienced with Epson. =/

That said, it was in warranty, just barely (had 2 weeks left on it).

Last night I put it back in its mount, and for the life of me I do not understand what has changed, but I cannot get the bottom of the image as low as it used to be via e-shift. I have a quality mount that doesn't move around on its own. Furthermore it's not possible to move it up and down. But now the bottom of the image is over a foot higher than it was before the repair, even with the mount at its maximum tilt downwards (which it wasn't on before). I cannot for the life of me figure out why, but it's not just perception after a month and a half without a projector as we have pictures of before and after.

I have high ceilings and a short throw and so we're craning our necks up right now.

I also can't get keystone to work with the Apple TV 4K (it's greyed out). It was working before. We're basically watching a trapezoid right now.

I'm bringing this stuff up with JVC but any thoughts on either of these issues?

thx

Just a guess: it sounds like the light engine was not fully seated properly when it was installed. I would contact them ASAP.

I have an x590r. I tried to update the firmware, and although I can connect over the network and my project is in standby, I'm getting this error:
Try connecting to "192.168.1.44"...
Connected to projector has succeeded.
Switched projector into download mode failed
Please check PJ in "Standby" mode, and accepted "Cedia" cmd


Also, I’m new to calibration and was interested in using the JVC calibration software. It says it supports a Spyder5, but you can't buy those anymore. Is there a way to use the SpyderX, which is the new model and only one that you can buy new?

Where did you get the new firmware? There should be none afaik.

Has there been no new firmwares in 3 years? I downloaded the firmware updater for x90r which I assumed included the x590r, but now I’m thinking that x90r was a specific model from years ago and has nothing to do with mine.
