FAQ's
Does it have the Bright Corners issue of the RS1/2:

-Seem to be a non-issue with the rs10's__________________________________________________________
Will it work with my Anamorphic Lens?

-You might need to alter your throw ratio if you were at the low end.
PRISMASONIC H-FE1500R It seems to need a 1.95 or greater throw ratio.
PANAMORPH UH380 confirmed to be working with a throw as low as a 1.57.
__________________________________________________________
Can it do the scaling for 2:35 Cinemascope setups?

-Yes its has a V-Stretch mode.
__________________________________________________________
How can I access the service menu?

Up/down/right/left/enter (type it fast) on the projector (not in remote).
WARNING Dont mess with service menu unles you know what you are doing!!
__________________________________________________________
Are there discrete codes for V-Stretch Etc.?

It seems the RS1 and RS2 codes work with the RS10. So until all the Universal Remote compans add the rs10/20 the the database Those will work.

UPDATE: Here are the Discrete codes for the V-Stretch. v-stretch on: 0x37 0x33 0x32 0x33 (ASCII: 73 23)
v-stretch off: 0x37 0x33 0x32 0x34 (ASCII: 73 24)
__________________________________________________________
Is there any way to adjust the iris presets in the service menu?

-No info yet.
__________________________________________________________
Does the RS10 use the same lens as the more expensive RS20?

-Yes (until someone informs otherwise)

Good news. After more playing, with the iris engaged I got over 33000:1 contrast! Granted the light output dropped to just shy of 400 lumens, but still....quite impressive!...standard lamp mode, but yes iris 1. Iris 3 is where I got ~16000:1 and 968 lumens

KNOWN ISSUES
-Recessed Lens makes it a bit more tricky to use an anamorphic lens.

-"Oversaturated" primary colors.

Great!

Anxious to see what you think of the convergence and shading. Check for light corners too.

Shading is SUBERB...hardly anything to speak of. So far of the 1/2 dozen units I have tested...perfect in regards to bright corners (there are none at all).

Unfortunately the RS10 does not have a full CMS, like its bigger brother the RS20. But, still, after basic adjustment that were very acceptable. (NOTE: There are some adverse affects to do this adjustment, but I found that the setting was a good compromise).

Any hints for us regulars who have no idea on what to adjust to do what you did?



My nanny was wrong..an ovenight envelope was here when I got home...I was so PISSED. 1 min later..BAM! UPS shows up



I am going to test my Prismasonic with it now...

Did she experience any "pumping" of the iris? Oh, that's right...no automatic iris !

Wait . . . are we still talking about Webby's nanny?

Holy Cow Jason! That's quite impressive for the new "entry level" JVC. Pretty much the performance of the not-long-ago-released RS2! Sounds killer.

Would that be in high lamp with the iris on 1?

Actually standard lamp mode, but yes iris 1. Iris 3 is where I got ~16000:1 and 968 lumens (which is about where it should be as it is rated about 17000:1 native and 1000 lumens).


I didn't get a chance to play with iris 2 to see the compromise, but I will when I have more time.

I have checked over about 1/2 dozen as I said. I have rated ALL 5/5 for bright corners (meaning as good as it gets...and with RS1/2's I rarely gave more than a 4/5). For uniformity I rarely did more than a 4/5 as well, once in a while a 4.5/5 (with the 1 and 2). With the RS10's so far all have gotten 4.5/5 and I only hastened to give 5/5's since I am sure if I actually measured them I would bet there would be some slight variation across the field, but to the eye it was undetectable.

Mine is mint all over the board. Great uniformity, NO bright corners (THANK YOU!!!) and my convergence is almost perfect (green is off .33 of a pixel).

I might just be in NEW gear mode but the image has much more punch and depth than my RS1.



Here is a quick screenshot and my messy mount job before I do any adjustments.
