  1. You can check here: Support Information & Download for JVC Products | JVC WWW3.JVCKENWOOD.COM Support Information & Download for JVC Products Good to see JVC's Aus website finally showing the current models of PJ instead of listing the Xx000 series.
  2. Thanks Al. Yeah , a big move at my age.😃😃 As your sig. says, "it's a drug", and I am a confessed addict, so don't worry I will continue to lurk here and keep my finger on the PJ pulse. I can see Dean's CC getting a workout very soon for a NX7, despite the fact he just bought a new bulb for the X7000.😁😁 Hope you get a lot of enjoyment from the new machine. As you say, they are certainly more "plug & play" than HDR on the first gen machines.
  3. @murawai it's all up to you now. I'm in the process of relocating to NSW. I will have to survive without a PJ and my beloved HT room for an indefinite period. Hopefully when I build our new dream home in a year or so woofer will be selling his RS4500 laser along with an Envy. I'll be packing my X7000 and all my gear into storage in the meantime. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
  4. As Madshi has said in the AVS thread, making a DIY HTPC will always be cheaper. But remember the Envy was created to fill a gap for those that didn't want to build and more importantly learn how to use a HTPC. I don't think you can compare DIY to a proprietary consumer product, especially considering: "Not to forget all kinds of license fees (e.g. for HDCP), costs for warranty repairs, support costs, CE certification, costs for legal stuff, accounting, designers etc etc etc. It's frightening how many types of costs add up to what starts as a seemingly modest amount of hardware parts."
  5. Dont get me wrong. I certainly am not "complaining " about the price. Madshi has been contributing to the community for over a decade, so he's entitled to charge what he feels is reasonable. I'm sure it costs a packet to produce. I'm just sad that I don't have that sort of money to spend on what is one of my many hobbies.
  6. Ok. News time. Madshi's official press release for the Envy: http://madvr.com/EnvyPressRelease.pdf Very exciting, but as expected the pricing will see me watching from the sidelines. ( Pro model $US 10000, Base model $US 5500). I hope he sells a truck load ( so he may eventually release a bargain basement model for $A 2000 😊😊) More details here: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/37-video-processors/3053602-madvr-envy-anticipation-thread-25.html#post58541994
  7. Here is the JVC US release statement: http://pro.jvc.com/pro/pr/2019/consumer/firmware_update.html It will really interesting to see how this Frame Adapt HDR algorithm works. If its anywhere near as good as madvr or the upcoming Envy for DTM then my X7000 will be heading to the Classifieds. Particularly interested to hear what the likes of Manni and other N-series owners, that also use a HTPC with madvr think. Hopefully @Javs and @wooferocau can give an appraisal as well.
  8. How many 4k UHD discs are encoded with HDR 10+? A quick Google search is telling me 2 ( Bohemian Rhapsody & Alien 40th anniversary). Let's not confuse HDR 10+ capability with the sort of dynamic tone mapping that Madvr or a Lumagen can perform on all source material.
  9. Seeing that JVC have acknowledged this current model will be carrying over for another year, it's great to see these firmware updates coming out. Not sure which "Stability issues" are being resolved by 2.8, but it would be great if someone notices a improvement. My biggest issue with this generation is the green or purple bars. The fact that it can appear any time from 0 - 300+ hours is a time bomb I am just not prepared to risk. So I'll be sticking with my X7000 for a while yet. But it would be great if JVC could confirm that 2.8 fixes that issue.
  10. 😁😁😁 Well they had been repeating the First Meeting of those 2 teams for 3 months. Haven't checked whether they're now showing last weekend's game ( and plan on repeating that one for the next 3 months. 🤔😉😉).
  11. Not having any issues with the IQ4 box itself, however, the 4k channel is a joke. Very limited coverage of most sports ( not an F1 fan, sorry). For example, they are still replaying the AFL game between Carlton and St. Kilda that was played 3 months ago !!!!! Very few "Live" games. Seems to be more NRL. As for 4k doco's, they are on high rotation repeat. Have seen everything I want to watch, and there is NOTHING new in the upcoming 2 weeks+ of the TV Guide. Very, very disappointing. Having said that the image thrown is significantly better than HD and especially FTA HD which is frequently only 720p anyway.
  12. Just went to have a look and "Sold". That was quick.................Colin ????????
  13. Thanks Colin.....................and you're right. Tempting.
