Next Generation Jvc's: X5000/7000/9000

And the reality is that there likely be no further firmware updates for this series with the arrival of the next generation, despite the CMD vertical banding issue that really does need fixing.

hi dave i noticed in the new series jvc thread on avs, 2 existing issues... autocal that doesnt work and the CMD banding so likely they will still get a firmware update. well I hope they do for the new series.

 

but yes suspect for our series here, unlikely anymore updates to worry about :) so if can get done much better idea to get done by jvc. less stress. no cost... just the time away... which if can plan leaves without too much down time.

picked up the panasonic 4k player today from the good guys for $475.  Will set it up when i get home and give it a shot.  In all likelihood i will have to replace the hdmi cable as its a 15M cable i am using and its probably too long...will cross that bridge when i get to it.  or maybe pick one up on my way home and take it back if i dont need it.  Having said that.....i have placed pc games at 4k resolution using the projector and it has been fine with the cable that is in place so there is no reason it shouldnt work

gotthe panasonic up and running last night.was an easy process......unfortunately i still cant get the 4k streaming (i know its not true 4k) through netflix as the projector is limited to 4k 30 f/s

Played assasins creed uhd and while the detail is definitely a step up i can really see the need to get a calibration done.  Its booked for 14 june.  I am defenitely not unhappy with the purchase as the colour range is just outstanding.  The reds and greens are so vibrant.

its not actually :)

 

just matter of setting the pana for 4k 50/60 in the hdmi settings :) its something the pana asks you when booting up for first time. whether you want to allow 4k 50/60 if said no, then can re select anytime in the pana menu to allow.

Got my X7500 roughed in with the rest of the AV Gear.  Any quick settings I should change / use for now (prior to getting it calibrated)?

Thanks

Nathan

wouldn't bother calibrating 350 to as much as 500 hours some will say

thx mode is pretty handy out of box and with little tweaking is pretty d@mn good to take you to calibration.

if have access to some setup discs, i would do the very basics of lamp output to pull iris back so in the order of 12-14 FL or 9-12 if prefer less brightness. also brightness and contrast with the patterns and colour by eye to suit given some reference images.

 

for HDR there are jvcs recommendation depending on your screen size and the clipping patterns if want to optimise :) (refer jvc site) and R&M patterns or sony egg patterns on disc.

Where do you get these numbers from and what evidence supports such a long wait?
Are you ever going to see that X7000 of yours calibrated? :rolleyes:

350 - 500 seems really high to me. Considering your lucky to get a good 2000 hours out of a globe before it starts to look average. 100 hours is all thats needed before a calibration.

you are thinking some old gen jvc. and you get a lot more out of globes in anycase even the x35, if you are only getting 2000 out of globe id suggest you have some problems.. 100 hours is NO where enough for a calibration. the lamps on the new gen machines have a much extended life in fact at quite high hours show hardly any drop off in output. and this is a whole new gen of light engine with new grid polarisers etc thats why they achieve the awesome contrast even through they are higher output. you need to put away your old preconceptions if you have some. and all reports are showing quite a bit of droop as high as 350 hours and i have been told if want to be safe aim for 500 :)

you can always buy a spider and do an autocal if you like as many have done as well. however for a full professional calibration given the costs involved(keeping in mind we arent just talking a simple calibration) wiht this machines and then with what goes in arranging you dont want to blow it at 100 hours. Perhaps you have money to blow, all i can only tell you what the reports are if want to do whatever that is anyones wish

Yeah still rocking the X35 mate :P And scratch that i just checked my hours and when the indicator light/message popped up it was 2900 hours.. My globe had dimmed a lot and on bright white scenes i could see it slowly pulsing like the globe was flickering. Happy to be corrected and informed that the new Jvc projectors have improved there globe life :)

Problem was the AVR.  its only hdmi 1.4 compliant so had to get another cable and run direct to the pj from the panasonic player and audio out to the avr.

 

Calibration booked for 14th june.

Well after nearly 3 years in the wilderness (well Singapore actually) we are about to repatriate into our house and am looking at upgrading the projector before we move back in. Currently have a HD950 with a virtually useless lamp and was wondering do I upgrade to the 9500 or the 7500 or do I go a different route altogether. I have been out of it for so long that I havent been keeping track of progression or issues with the JVC range. The fact the HD950 served me so well I thought I would stick with the brand. 

I have reached out to OzTheatre for a price on both and waiting to hear back on that front. Not interested in buying in Singapore not worth it for projectors, other AV kit not a problem, picked up a couple JL Audio subs for the rear of the room with a $1500 discount over Oz but projectors are more expensive overall. Any guidance on the new range would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance Arthur!

Hey, have a question to those with 2.35:1 screens - do these and the Epson 9300 with their lens memory cut off the black bars or simply move them out of the screen area?

They simply move the black bars off the screen unless you're using an anamorphic lens.

Effectively all you are doing is zooming the image out making it larger. Therefore, you end up with the black bars overscanning  outside the frame of the screen. The JVC's do have an option to mask off a portion of the image.See page 47 of the manual:http://www33.jvckenwood.com/pdfs/B5A-1144-16.pdf

But I've never tried it.

The JVC's have such good "blacks" for the black bars that I've never felt the need.

Sorry Rob beat me to it.

The epson has pixel blanking too, but you'd need to turn it on and off going between formats which is not an on/off button, but going into the menu and selecting top and bottom and incrementally adjusting back and forth, best to just project the black bars onto a dark colour wall if using scope screen.

By using the zoom function to display 2:35:1 does it lose quality compared to using an anamorphic lens?
