When I turn my Eotech on using the NV button as described in the manual I see nothing through a PVS14. Hit the NV button again and I see a reticle through the PVS14 but when I move that out of the way I can also see it with the naked eye. I don't want to cause any burn in on the PVS tube so I am leery to use it this way. Any thoughts from the experts here?

if its on the brightest nv level then it can be seen with the eye, i dont trust mine to come on in the nv mode so i would allways turn it on then fit the pvs14 on when i know its ok .
i even sent them a mail sugesting it should have a proper way of isolating the full power but it seems its not part of the requirement for the main customers . i marked my tube for an hour or so when it came on too bright one time - lucky it went away but its put me off the eotech it a bit , pity really as i like the eotech with its fine aiming ret in daylight

Are you remembering to take the day filter cap off when you try it? I can't see the NV reticle on mine with it on the PVS 14. After it's removed, everything is fine.

if gain is turned down too low or day cap is on, you will not see the reticle on its default brightness when it first comes on. Try turning on the NV reticle, then click up the brightness or the gain. As someone else said the NV reticle on its brightest setting is visible with the naked eye.

Had the day cap off. It was the gain, I had to turn it way up. I think I will run the PVS head mounted as soon as the ATPIAL comes in but wanted to have the option. Thanks for reminding me there is a gain on the silly thing!
