Seems like 3rd time really is the charm! :)

Everything is speculation so it's just discussion and banter, don't see the big deal really.

Definitely not a big deal, its probably just too many years of reading the 'preemptive' thoughts and comments on the next models. I just like to point stuff out as people often can run away with it and next thing we're reading it as gospel over on the other site lol. Meanwhile I am hopeful of being left in peace on the weekend to sort both my Lumagen and Paladin A-lens out finally  :)

Just an update with my replacement Z1....  :)

The lens on this sample is even better than my original ( didnt think that was possible!!) "absolutely" tack sharp on every part of the image.. :)
Perfect convergence ...No adjustment needed at all!

Completely "stoked" with the outcome of this replacement.....its definitely here for the long run!.  :)

My original Z1 was running the 1.22 ver Firmware... My Replacement is running 1.23ver .

1.23 isnt listed on the JVC website... anyone now what is different  between the 2 firmwares?

One observation i have  noticed , is the inbuilt Focus"/Zoom/Shift patterns are very different from ver 1.22.

Might be my imagination ( only got 6 hrs on it thus far) , but i swear the Dynamic dimming is also "different" ?

There is new firmware. It's in testing by JVC USA, prior to release.

I guess they have to feel somewhat comfortable with it if they are delivering new projectors with it...!

I asked yesterday. Waiting to find out more. The info screen shows additional data. Nothing big, but will find out.

Have the answer on the new firmware.

1.  Max CLL and FALL data now displays on info page.
2. Improves reading of HLG flag.

Ahh, makes sense - we've seen screenshots of other JVC projectors that show the Max CLL and FALL data on the info page.

HLG won't make any difference to me, but it's good that JVC improved it.

Thanks for sharing.   I'm still loving my RS4500.  I'm up to 940 hours (just reached my 1 year anniversary).  I'm enjoying it with Netflix, Amazon and YouTube streaming, my movie server (1841 HD movies, 270 UHD movies and a ton of other content). 

I also now have a date with Chad B.  My projector had already been calibrated and now that I have the Lumagen I'm not sure this is really needed but I'm damn curious about his custom HDR gamma curves...

I was a bit surprised at how much better even 1080p sources looked after Chad calibrated my RS4500. And I'm still loving the custom HDR curves too. I think you will love the results.
