  1. The Xpand X105-RF-X1s work perfectly with the new 4K Native projectors, no need for the X3 version!JVC have changed the orientation of the polariser in the new 4K native projectors by 90 deg. I posted about it a few pages back (link here)

    2019 projector releases ?

    About 70 hours up on it so far over the course of about 6 weeks which when compared to how many hours I clocked up on my old Sharpvision DLP (around 1000 hours over 12 years) shows I'm getting a heap more use out of the N7. Getting this projector has made me love watching movies at home again. I'm seeing (and hearing with my Maestro M5 AV processor and 5.1.4 Atmos setup) new things in movies that I've seen many times in the past and have never previously seen! It's like watching a movie for the first time again

    I'll agree with you about the remote. It looks nice but it's a pain to use. To use it you have to constantly press the button for the backlight to see which button you want to press.

    2019 projector releases ?

    With all the reports on AVS and here of panel misalignments, convergence problems, and chromatic aberration etc. in the new 4k projectors from both Sony and JVC after watching Star Wars Ep IV this morning (on Blu-ray, from the 2015 six movie box set, a really wonderful transfer that's really pin sharp and clean and it looked superb when projected by the DLA-N7, probably the best I've ever seen Ep IV projected including commercial cinemas, although I don't like some of the stuff Lucas "added" in this later version of Ep IV) I decided to check everything again to make sure I'm not missing any problems with my unit. Putting up the quick brown fox image to test 4k sharpness (the QBF .png image file on a USB drive into my Oppo UDP203 which was set to chroma 4:4:4, and CMD off on the DLA-N7 to ensure the projector didn't downsample back to 4:2:2) and it looked sharp and correct, no chromatic aberration seen (certainly nothing like the recent pic Arrow put up on AVS of the Sony VPL-VW270ES projecting the QBF image!). Putting up the pixel alignment grid from the JVC menu and I don't see any overall or zone panel misalignment at all (and changing the pixel alignment to anything from 0 introduced misalignment on the grid, to my eyes), and maybe a tiny amount of chromatic aberration at the side edges of the screen (possibly the tiniest, tiniest hint of red fringing, if I put my nose right up to the screen, but absolutely nothing visible from my seating position). I haven't run the JVC Autocal software to measure gamma, colour temp and colour yet. I'm just enjoying watching movies on it

    Hmmm, strange. Perhaps sign up again?

    MadVR Envy

    I signed up to www.envy.madVR.com with my email address to get updates about madVR Envy. I received an email today to vote on the UI font, and voted for Tenerifa 😎
  7. I loved Mortal Engines, it had a really nice image and great soundtrack. It had a Lord of The Rings feel to the cinematography. If they can do a Lord of The Rings 4k UHD Blu-ray box set up to the standard of the Mortal Engines 4K UHD Blu-ray I'll be very, very happy!
  8. True, but if I changeover my Blu-ray player then buy a DTM solution (MadVR or Lumagen) it'll be more overall. That said of what I've seen of what the DP-UB9000 can do its an extremely good UHD Blu-ray player (as good, if not slightly better, than my Oppo). Not too worried about HDR tone mapping on streamed UHD content. I've mostly found that on streamed UHD content the HDR is mostly broken at the moment, as far as I can tell.
  9. Still pondering getting a Panasonic DP-UB9000 to replace my Oppo UDP-203, just to check out the tone mapping synergy between it and my DLA-N7... But with MadVR Envy or Lumagen Radiance Pro dynamic tone mapping on the horizon it may not be worth getting a new UHD Blu-ray player... In the meantime, can confirm the Xpand X105-RF-X1 3D glasses work a treat, (but I needed to open up the iris and set crosstalk reduction to maximum for a good result, and yes I notice the 48Hz flicker... , No surprise given I suffer very badly from single chip DLP RBE... ) Anyhow, I'm watching Mortal Engines tonight, silly concept, but a very fun movie, and the 4K Blu-ray transfer is excellent, with incredible detail, colour saturation and contrast, a real reference quality UHD release, just like Fantastic Beasts Crimes of Gindelwald is. The Dolby Atmos track is brilliant too!

    So which font did everyone vote for? Lanzarote or Tenerifa? I went Tenerifa
  11. Its a post on AVScience not AVS (they're different, believe me). Apparently they're two different websites. Something to do with the company AVScience originally owning the AVS website and then selling it off or abandoning it, or something. I'm not really sure. That post by Manni on AVScience regarding calibration using Autocal will be worthwhile following for sure.
  12. Those aren't pillows!!!!!!!!! RIP John Candy. Planes, Trains... was a Steve Martin film of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels calibre, and not of SGT Bilko calibre
  13. I enjoyed it immensely. The Dolby Atmos track is near reference. Image is pretty good on 4K Blu-ray, not quite amazing, but pretty good nevertheless. Historical accuracy is wanting, but hey, it's a B-grade horror made to A-grade movie production levels. Overall a great movie and very entertaining.
  14. This? Am I allowed to post this link? https://discuss.avscience.com/index.php?topic=1850.0
