I just picked up my first 1080p projector after holding out all these years!

Mind you I have had projectors since the 3 tube Sonys from back in the mid 90s...

Then went through a bunch of Sharp, Epson and finally Sony but these projectors were prior to the HDMI input days.


I want first to thank this board for helping make my decision whilst doing my research.

On my list was the PT4000 or the PT7000 until I saw the X30 in action thanks to Dave Hao of Eastporters.

There was no turning back! LOL!


Anyways, attached are photos of the unboxing.


I do have one issue though.

My Anthem D2 preamp/processor's output through HDMI does not send a signal to the X30.


I used the same HDMI cable from my son's Xbox360 and no problems at all.

That's how I managed to get the screen shots.

The problem now is there is no audio...


Is there an issue with the D2 HDMI output going to the JVC?

I currently use that output for my Pioneer Plasma and it works fine.

It's very puzzling....

Any opinions on the motion handling? Looks like you're gaming on it...

Yes I would also like to know about the motion handling on it. Is it burring too much on fast motion scenes when gaming? Is it bothersome to you? Please let us know. Thanks!

Congratulations Dave!


Did you buy the 3D emitter and glasses or are you using it for 2D only?

Thanks!


I ordered the emitter but will be getting it on Friday.

Got 2 pairs of glasses though...


I somehow managed to get the Anthem D2 to talk to the X30 finally.

Just finished watching Training Day.

What version of HDMI is your processor? May want to try changing the sequence of your startup as this might help if it is an older version. Turn on the processor and source before firing up the jvc. Worth a try. SJ

Thanks!

I don't know which version I have but it's an Anthem D2 from 3 years back.


I somehow managed to get it to work finally.

I think it was in the sequence you mentioned where the PJ was initially off.

How come it says X30B and not RS45?

I thought in North America we'd get the RS45 product number

Am I missing something?



Can't wait to get mine

They are identical except from what I understand the RS45 is sold through the professional division. ie installers etc.

The RS45 has a gold ring around the lens surround whilst the X30 is silver...


The warranty is 3 years on the X30 and only 2 on the RS45.


Makes more sense to go for the one with the longer warranty!

From what I remember, the only difference is the color of the material around the lens. The RS45 has a gold surround while the X30 has a silver one.

Does gaming on it feel good? (Any problems with input lag?)

I don't game unfortunately.

My kids do...I'll ask them tonight!


I do know that they were in heaven!

thanks for letting me know about the difference in X30 vs RS45.

Knowing that I should've ordered the X30

Since you are the first, you might start the owner's thread if you like, before it was discussed that many of us wanted a 2D only owner's thread and a 3D one separate, so the 2D thread doesn't fill up with 3D complaints. Start either one you like, both if you prefer, or none...
