Thanks. I was waiting to see which was Best. I really wanted the wireless but too much money for those issues.

Use a remote extender.

Have plenty of experimenting to do in the future. All I did thus far is position it and plug in the HDMI I was using up till now.

I watch a lot of dark sci-fi and horror stuff so in scenes where there are a lot of night skies or the t-rex paddock night scene from Jurassic park even, I wonder how great this can look if it shadows were just darker and color looking more vibrant. My room has no light from the outside full sunlight blocking windows.
That is one of my projectors and I was able to A/B the difference which was huge. The 5040 blacks were considerably darker and with a much crisper picture. Much quieter projector without the light leakage in the front like the BenQ.

You will be very happy with a 5040.... but to be honest you would also see a big difference from the BenQ by picking a up a new or used 5030 or Panny 8000 for a third to half of the price if you are on a budget.

5040 makes the most sense to someone going 4k, has or will get a UHD player and media along with the latest streaming devices that output 4k.

No HDR streaming on Philips or Samsung UHD players nor latest streaming devices from Roku or Amazon per personal experience. Member Ix reports being able to stream in HDR on Nvidia device. I do not have the latest Panasonic UHD player to report on that.

I don't have a UHD player yet but everything I've tried streaming has been 709 8bit. All my streaming so far has been Netflix.

I will try Amazon next week.

This weekend will be football intensive.

Samsung player has HDR streaming through Amazon App. No Netflix HDR as of yet. Firmware update supposedly anytime, but who knows? Philips has only 2 apps, Netflix and Youtube no HDR. Xbox One S offers Netflix HDR streaming but that's it and of course the 4k blu-ray player that comes built in. Panasonic has the UBD-900 which is available this month for $700 which is way too high, but they just announced the UBD-700 to compete with the lower priced players on the market. No pricing as of yet, but the consensus is around $399. The last player to possibly make it out this year will be the PS4 Neo which should be a great option if you're in to games too. Then last but not least ROKU is revamping there streaming players all coming with 4k streaming capabilities and the top model also supporting HDR. Also with a possible September release.

Onkyo's (some of them, not sure of all) have On screen display only on main HDMI out. Make sure you are connecting that output to PJ and not second one.
Otherewise there is no reason why PJ will not display it.

I simply pulled the HDMI from the 8350 that displayed the volume and hooked it to the 5040 so it should work. I did switch video processing on the Onkyo to 'bypass' so it and the projector would not both be dithering so maybe that change (or a finger check in the process) turned off the volume display. I will review in the morning (have a movie for tonight).

Obviously, if you bypass the receiver's video processing it won't overlay volume control. I'm not familiar with Onkyo but I suspect it should have an option to allow video processing but disable any kind of conversion or scaling.

To those that have the projector, how do you turn it off? I ask because I hit standby to turn it off and it goes silent. No fan noise whatsoever. Is this normal? I'm use to hearing a cool down fan on my BenQ W1070.

Standby is correct. The lens cover will slide over and cover the lens. Mine is also completely silent. I've been watching about 3hrs per night for a week and I've never heard the fan after shutting it down

Thanks a lot. Hopefully Philips will release a firmware soon to address this.

My old receiver doesn't support 4k/HDR/HDCP/atmos etc. Want to upgrade later this year so my best option currently to connect the philips directly to the projector for HDR/4K video & other one to the receiver for audio?

It's either dust blob or stuck/dead pixel.
Invert the PJ and see if that moves to the bottom. If yes, then it's on PJ not outside.

This is my first projector as well. I'm coming from a plasma. I also am waiting on the oppo. I'm still at factory settings. Tv is hit and miss. Some great but a lot are meh. Not projectors fault. Just taking a bad compressed image and blowing it up

Netflix originals even though they are still being streamed sdr look amazing.

Exactly right. I reset video to 'normal' and the volume overlay is back.

My throw Lens to screen is 12.5 feet and I have a 120" screen 1.1 gain. Will this unit be bright enough for 3D? This will be my 1st 3D projector so hoping first impression will be good.

I could consider dropping down to 110" if it would make a decent difference in terms of brightness/contrast for 3D/ 2D etc...but if not much difference I wont bother.

It's either dust blob or stuck/dead pixel.
Invert the PJ and see if that moves to the bottom. If yes, then it's on PJ not outside.
I just went to best buy and exchanged it for a new one. Now wait 6 days for it to arrive. I didnt want to take the risk of keeping a damaged unit.

I could consider dropping down to 110" if it would make a decent difference in terms of brightness/contrast for 3D/ 2D etc...but if not much difference I wont bother.
I have 150" screen 1.1 gain, you be OK with 120". You can make adjustments to settings. Brightness as high as 100.
