Hello all Whilst my NX9 is in the service centre I ended up picking one of these cheap. Ive never considered Epson and for its price, Damn! its not bad at all. The lens is what surprised me, a re

Just went to the epson website to check about a spec of my TW7100. I have ‘often visited’ website links that come up on safari on my iPad when I open a new page, and since I’ve checked the clearance c

I’ve haven’t done an update on this projector as of yet. Any tips ? I don’t want too brick it. 

 

The update was really easy. As long as you follow epsons  instructions, I can’t see you bricking it. Others have said that the update provided some benefits to PQ but I didn’t notice anything.

hey guys, I know the pj has a 12V trigger out but not a 12V trigger in....why???

 

can I put in a trigger out cable to my AVR and use the pj remote to turn the AVR on?

I know you can use it to trigger a roll down screen etc, just not sure on the pj-AVR combo...

 

cheers

hi J the 12V trigger is all about say triggering a motorised screen. so when you switch on the projector the screen drop downs... or curtains open up or something ..

 

theres no 12V in... but how most folk do this is either just use pj remote to switch on. or use a universal remote... so when hit "watch movie" it fires up everything related ...including the PJ

Well, I have been so impressed with the brightness stability of the Epson that my JVC x35 in my studio / study is getting replaced by an Epson as well. 
 

Epson 9400 replaced my JVC x9500 and I haven’t regretted it. On the contrary. The more I own the unit, the more impressed I am.
 

Here we come Epson #2.

 

:D :D :D

I’m really happy with the 9400. The only thing I miss from the JVC is the motion handling but overall the 9400 has been better for my needs.

I think native motion handling is better on the Epson - it does not introduce judder that’s not in the source. LCOS can add more judder to my eyes. 
 

However, frame interpolation is MUCH better on the JVC, especially on low, it’s really good. Epson‘s FI has lots of artifacts and just crappy. It’s pretty shocking actually, especially on low.
I only use it on 3D movies on high which works fine. 
 

So I find native motion easier on the Epson, really cinematic. JVC with CMD on low is a step up though!

I tend to agree, but hey the jvc is double the price or more depending on which model.

I prefer sonys motion handling tbh one of their strong points.

Getting the best of each tech into one single projector would be nice, but its a pipe dream.

I complete agree! Sony’s motion is great!! 
 

However, their panel stability has been shocking. Sony said they introduced a new more stable panel in the top end product now. Let’s hope they are right. 

 

I gave up trying to calibrate my friend’s Sony after two years. The panels degraded to a point that it was near impossible. Different areas gave wildly different readings too. Ugh! JVC drops in contrast a bit as the panels degrade but at least it’s normally uniform and not full of colour uniformity issues unless of course it comes from the factory like that. We have not seen how these new 4K panels hold up though! 
 

But this is what I have been impressed with the Epson: almost no panel degradation at 1000hrs. The panels are very stable in my unit and so is the lamp. A JVC would be showing some contrast drop at this point and brightness drop to a point that a new lamp would be needed (to my eyes). It also needs a recalibration every 200-300hrs to look its best. 

I just feel like this Epson works without the hassle. Sure, it could have better dark scene contrast, better DI and better FI but it’s a very well-rounded unit overall with stellar image quality. I also don’t feel guilty leaving it on for 6+ hours for gaming sessions, movies and stepping away for half hour in between. I would never do that to a JVC. 

Very happy for the bang for buck!

Hello

I just got a TW9400, and I'm trying to set it up with windows (10), but whatever I do HDR is not working, or at least under "windows HD color settings" it says that there is no HDR capability. In the Epson menu the signal is showing as SDR. I'm using a matebook x pro laptop to connect it to, and I connect it to its thunderbolt 3 usb c port (not sure if that matters).
Where could the problem be? What am I missing?

Another question, when I set the resolution to max 4096 X 2160 4k the text becomes so small it's completely unbearable and blurry, but even at full hd the text is somewhat blurry, and whatever I do I can't get it sharp. I know this might sound as a noob question but how do you use it with windows to make it look good, what settings are you using?

You have to love the price of the Epson replacement  lamps compared to JVC.

If you are using Windows 10 you'll want to use 150 or 200% scaling to increase the text side and sharpness. I've found the epson is very selective about what inputs allow it to use HDR...it had trouble with my Xbox One X despite it having the functionality and my denon allowing HDR10. Yet it works fine with my panasonic 4k player. You may need one of the HD fury devices here to allow the HDR to pass through to the PC.

hey guys, I know the TW9400 is 3D capable, do many of you use it for that purpose?

want to know what glasses to get that will sync with the pj.

I know you can get Epson glasses, but have also seen cheaper ones on eBay etc that say they are compatible

 

interested on your thoughts

No epson aren't even bringing in the glasses anymore. You need to find oem ones on ebay I'm afraid.

Actually I have 2 pairs I'd be happy to sell, used once and work fine. PM me if you want them.

Think they're $99 retail, does $60 a pair sound fair?

I think I watched a 3D movie on one of my Epson pj's at least. Not sure if it was the 9400 though.

 

 I used some old Samsung glasses I had from an old TV. Surprisingly they work with my Panasonic TV too, which don't even work with some genuine Pana glasses I have from an earlier model (maybe because that's a plasma TV?). Anyway, I don't like these glasses as they're flimsy, but glad they work with two devices besides what they're intended for and saves me having to buy more.

I messaged you Richard. If Esoterica isn’t interested in the glasses, I’d gladly take them.

I would've been interested but he offered them to jazzman so... I didn't see Richard mention a price before anyway.

I have a pair of original Epson 3D glasses here that I used once only if anyone is interested. They don’t fit well over my glasses so I’m using bigger ones I got from eBay. 😉 

 

I’m in Sydney.

When setting up the projector if one side of the screen is slightly lower than the other is it best just to spin one of the wheels on the base of the projector to even it up? Or is there a setting in the actual projector?

Presume you're shelf mounting and that the image (not the screen) is slightly lower. Yes, you can just adjust one or more of the feet. If the screen isn't level you should fix it.

Should add that if the image isn't rectangular and slightly trapezoid then the projector isn't at right angles to the screen. If that's the case turn the projector towards the slightly smaller side to get a rectangular image, then use lens shift to move the image back on to the screen. Don't use keystone adjustments - they're for cheap projectors and cause artefacts.

Thank you. Projection picture is flush it's just a slight unevenness barely seen by eye. I know keystones are a no no. I will mess with the wheels on the base once I get the screen installed as I am currently just projecting on wall. 135" screen to be received in next week or two.

Any recommendations for a good, well priced motorized 120-130” screen to use with the Epson EH-TW9400?

I’ve had a couple of Screen Technics screens and would buy them again.

Im looking at picking up one of these soon to replace my Panasonic 8000 projector. Seen it locally a few times and was very impressed. Should be a good upgrade on my current projector which now seems to have some sort of dust on the lcd assembly and has now started flickering constantly.

Does anyone have the Epson 3d glasses they are looking to offload? Looking for another pair

I don’t have a pair of the original Epson 3D glasses to compare with, but I sourced some Samsung 3D Active glasses (SSG-5100GB) off eBay. 

Seems to work well with the 9400. Not the most comfortable but works in a pinch. 
More cost effective I would think. Took a week+ to arrive (shipped from China on 12/11 arrived 20/11)

Loving my 9400. I use it every other day usually. I like to reserve it for movies and some movie-like series (The Boys, Stranger Things etc.) I really only watch NRL as far as sports go, and I'll use it for that too occasionally.

 

 I have mine sitting on the top of a bookcase which works very well. It only just fits though, so was a pain to get positioned initially.

I bought a motorised Grandview 112 about 9 years ago and it has run flawlessly since. Good value screen IMHO.

I just googled that. Not sure if it was one of the models in my research of screens, but it's almost perfectly sized for the space I have, allowing me to have the maximum screen size 😀 Being an unusual 112" (I don't recall seeing this size) makes it a good choice for me, so thanks for posting!

It's a good size I reckon. I sit about 4m away and is great. I'm still running an old Epson TW3200 which is on its second lamp. I still get a great picture but thinking it's maybe time to upgrade...hence the lurking in this TW 9400 thread.Here's the Grandview 112 which i've installed to come down in front of my Sony 65 OLED.

I recently upgraded to the TW9400 (from Optoma UHD51) and I absolutely love it!  Much better contrast and colour reproduction than the Optoma.  I have mine perched on a shelf at the back of my room 😀

Nice, i've got mine on layby.

 

Any idea if you can setup triggers for specific lens memory functions and tie that in with Logitech Harmony Elite remote?
