Great review Tom on the excellent JVC-DLAX790R projector.
But you floored me with the revelation that your reference screen is a StewartFilm widescreen, 8' wide no the less.
I'm afflicted with a serious case of screen envy.

While I'm not ready to migrate to 4K yet I've yet to decide on a tv or projector when I do. I've always been an early adopter of new technology - but it has also bitten me in the butt a few times - and that's why I'm not jumping into 4K yet since it seems that the dust has not yet settled on that. Right now I'm more inclined toward OLED than all other technologies. With the size of screens getting larger and larger (excluding the high price), the size of my room, why pay for a projector, a screen, installation, and more "parts" to worry about?

I was curious if you ran your review with the iris in Auto 1 , Auto 2 or with it off ? Auto 1 tends to crush blacks and seems to add more processing or treatment to the image. i prefer Auto 2 for HDR and Auto 2 or no iris for SDR.

In the settings section for HDR, the configured review setup had
"Maximum Manual for Lens Aperture". Does that mean 0 (the mathematical maximum) or -15 (the aperture maximum, if that is even true)? I am confused which one it is, so any feedback would be very helpful. Thank you.
