Thank you all for weighing in!@FilmReverie
I tried to include what I see as the relevant settings below ... Let me know if there are other specific settings you think I should list.@airscapes
Thanks for the link! The key post in that first thread seems to be:In the menus for the BenQ W1070 there is an HDMI setting you need to change to allow WTW and BTB content to pass. I can't recall the name of it off-hand,but if you search for it and change it, then you'll see the bars. I believe it's on Auto by default.
Unfortunately there is no HDMI setting that I can find on my projector that does anything of the sort, apart from the "HDMI Format" settings listed below, which change nothing that I can see.@kwk
Thanks for the suggestions. Tried those but they didn't make any difference .....
In case I haven't explained it clearly, I took some screenshots to illustrate the problem. This is how the pattern is supposed to look. All the bars are clearly visible.
This is what I actually see with my projector. Only the first three or four bars are (barely) visible and the rest are completely washed out.
Strangely, when I go to my Oppo's setup screen, which is a transparent overlay, I can suddenly see all the bars from the calibration screen beneath it perfectly ...?
[Here are all the settings I've tried so far:
Under "HDMI Format" in my projector's menu:
Switched from "PC signal" to "Video Signal" to "Auto."
Made no difference.
Under "HDMI Options Color Space" in my Oppo blu-ray player's menu:
Switched from "RGB Video Level" to "RGB PC Level" to "YCbCr 4:4:4:" to "YCbCr 4:2:2:"
Made no difference.
Any other settings you think I should try? Those seem to be the only ones directly related to this issue that I can see. I have of course tried "contrast" and "brightness" settings as well, but no matter what I d
o, only the first three or four bars are visible. It is almost as if the "contrast" setting is disabled. When I'm actually watching a movie, I can adjust contrast and clearly see the changes that are being made, so I'm not sure if the crushed white levels I'm seeing with the calibration screen are actually affecting the overall image quality ... ?
By the way, there are no "whiter than white" or "blacker than black" style settings for either my oppo player or the w1070. The w1070 does have "Black IRE 0" option but it is grayed out and I can't use it under any setting ...
Here is another thread from someone experiencing a somewhat similar issue ...
Anything else I should try? Ideas as to what this might mean?
