Let's provide some concrete feedback here for JVC and maybe we'll get the results we want..

How about just RGB gain and offset in the user menu?

I wouldn't cancel it (as I haven't pre-purchased it), but I also wouldn't buy it. I'd wait until they had a version that had access to the service menu, or I'd purchase something else as a holdover (likely the latter).

I will not cancel, but it is a serious drawback. I can live with most of the things that people mention are missing, but my G11 was calibrated by the original calibrator (the name currently escapes me, but he lived in california). It was a night and day difference. I'm sure the rs1 is better out of the box than the G11, but it would be nice to get closer to perfection.


If Elliot is calibrating both pearl and hd1, what is he doing to the hd1?

I won't cancel but I think this is the largest problem with the RS1 at this point. All of the other points are "features" that I can live without. This appears to be a "gap" in basic calibration capability. Granted I'm no expert but do trust input from people like William on such things...

Won't cancel, will use Lumagen to fill void.

Assuming there is no fix, the issue then becomes is there a problem in the first place. If panel uniformity is off significantly I'll return the RS1. This is where the LUT adjustment becomes really important, IMO.


I'm off to reread the Cinehome review as I can't believe there are no controls to address color shift with UHP bulb aging, and Elliott "calibrated" both the Pearl and HD1 in the shootoff.

Based on Ekkehart's comments on the other thread, it appears that the two RGB controls that are provided can be used to accurately set greyscale. So, I'm reserving judgment on the lack of separate RGB gain and offset control until I get a unit to try.

I would not know what to do with the LUT adjustments. I would, however, very much appreciate RGB gain and bias controls which were present on my previous Epson Cinema 500 and Panny 900 projectors, and my current Panny AX100.

It really needs:

1) RGB gain and bias, would never use LUT adjustments

2) Optical shift or even just panel image shift from the remote so you can bring a 2:35-1 movie down to a 16/9's screen bottom.

3) VGA 1080p input


The added contrast is welcome, but given the premium price I'm wondering why the items above are missing, when pretty much standard with lower costing units?
