Good to see some familiar names on here. Hi Mark! I was one of the first owners of the projector. I've had it for almost a year now and I have to admit, it's amazing. I had some acclamation issues in the beginning, but once overcome, i was blown away. As more tech info has developed on HDMI 2.0, I had a few questions myself.
My setup is the VW600, a 120" 2:35 Firehawk G4. Everything is being routed through a Yamah RX-V675, with Redmire HDMI cables @ 10gb/s. My sources are the puck, PS4 and Xbox one.
My questions are these:
1) Is the Yamaha receiver which has either HDMI 1.4a or b, affecting my video quality at all? I have it set to 4k pass-through on the receiver.
2) Will I see a boost in quality if I upgrade to a HDMI 2.0 receiver?
3) Is the 60 frames advantage of HDMI 2.0 really only for gaming?
4) Does the 600's HDMI support 8 or 10-bit colour, and again, is this reason enough to upgrade the receiver if your source is the PS4 and puck?
5) Any word on if Sony is going to update the original puck to get us some Netflix 4K? If not, that's some real ********.
6) Can someone recommend a calibrator in LA?
6) Anyone live in LA and want to see this beast? Come over.
I'm hoping the PS4 will at least pseudo support 4K blu ray, or they may do what xbox did and release another version with HDMI 2.0 down the line. Either way, help with the above questions would be very much appreciated. I'm also greatful that this years line up of projectors doesn't over shadow the 600; if anything, it highlights how good it is. I feel better about my investment.
Off topic, the series "Dusk till Dawn" on Netflix is awesome and the quality is fantastic, particularly for streaming. It's the best streaming I've seen yet. Clone wars also looked great!! I also wanted to offer that the firmware update on the Projector, receiver and the PS4 have been extremely welcome. There has been a noticeable improvement from what was already amazing. The PS4 blu ray and streaming quality has gotten better and better with the updates.
