JVC RS500 / 600 Settings - Tips - Firmware Links
« on: November 04, 2016, 01:30:43 PM »
I have gleaned some settings / tips from various sources, for both 1080p ( good initial out of the box settings ) and 4K settings. Email me and I'll send them to you.

Also, for those that don't have this information -

CABLES FOR JVC FIRMWARE UPDATES -
Firmware updates - Tripp-Lite Keyspan USA-19HS ( and a Tripp Lite Null Modem Serial RS232 Cable ) or Staples 18762 USB>RS232C adaptor cable

FYI -  When I purchased the RS232 adapter at Staples last spring the price at the local Staples store was double what is shown on the staples.com web site.  The store matched their internet price, so ask for the price match if the marked price is higher than the Staples web price.   

I used the 10 ft. version of the StarTech null modem cable (Amazon link below) along with the Staples USB-to-Serial adapter and had no issues with the firmware update.

Also to add for those that have questions (and don't know), about running your PJ with 4K HDR using a custom BT.2020 profile, there is a doc from JVC addressing this...

As well for those wanting to calibrate their new PJ using the "auto-cal" process they can get started here...
