MY, MY, how things have changed!!!! Now there are native 4k units!!!! geez, talk about a little buyer's remorse.....and just to think I am coming into a little prosperity......My unit is nearly 3 months old, only 190 hrs. on it.......Darn.....Used one of the HDR curves on it and puts out a great image.....but still....

540 and 640 are great projectors. The 540 may be the best selling JVC with us for two years in a row.

I'm already kicking myself. If I knew Chadb could definitely make it my way in January I'd be all over it.

Ordered the RS540 on Friday.  Can’t wait to get it going! It is replacing Epson 5030.   :) :)

You're going to love it! Should be a big upgrade over your current Epson.

Anyone have any suggested settings on hdr mode for 4k hdr movies. Im trying find some recommended settings as my picture seems to dark in darker scenes. im using x590/rs440 with 106" 1.0 gain screen and Panasonic 820 player. watched incredibles 2 and just seemed way too dark in most scenes.

Most would suggest putting the 820 into SDR/2020 mode, HDR Optimizer "On," and then using a 'regular' Picture Mode on the Projector, with Gamma of 2.4 and BT/2020 Color Profile.  Try that and see what you think.  You can further tweak the picture with the Slider on the 820.

Here you can see the grayscale stability of the JVC 1080p E-Shift models. This is my Cineversum Black Wing Two (based on the JVC RS520) when I calibrated it today. It was last calibrated at 48 hours on August 12. 2017 and today it has 500 hours so it is 452 hours and almost 16 months since I calibrated it last time. This is to show the JVC are almost totally stable after the initial gamma drop is fixed via Autocal or the 12 point manual calibration in JVC Autocal and I prefer the 12 point over the fully automated Autocal.

The only thing I have done when I calibrated before taking this screenshot is to set the gain/100 % white in the projector and nothing else. I perfected it after in both the 12 point and internal CMS. The contrast number is a hiccup, it measures around 100000:1 when it measures normal.

The brightness of the lamp is the same as it was 450 hours ago.

Is there a way to do basic calibration for the jvc rs440 using the spears and munsil 2nd edition disc? I tried with contrast and brightness for 1080p but i couldnt adjust it low enough to see all the bars  am i doing something wrong or can this not be used to adjust picture settings on projector

That's very good. No loss at all ? I'm impressed.

Chad has told me several times just how remarkably stable the latest eshift gen happens to be.  I don't think JVC gets enough credit for this as I am not aware of another lamp-based projector that comes anywhere this close.

Yes, it is imressive it has lost around 5% from 0 hours to 500 hours in 16 months and har been totally stable when it comes to gamma after the drop was corrected at 48 hours. I have seen the same reusults on many JVC models I have calibrated and recalibrated the last years so the reports from Cine4Home saying the drop comes over time and not use and are not stable before they are at least 18 monts is complete bollocks. 8)
