My early conclusions on HDR are on POST #825. (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=825.) I passed this on to Epson support back in September.

I know at least for DVD and Blu-Ray, the Limited 16-255 range has always been the recommended setting. I am not sure how/if this changes today with UHD to be honest.
My test has always been: If I...

One clarification on an earlier post of mine. I said 4K enhancement can be turned ON on any Input.

HOWEVER, you can NOT turn it on for 3D signals. That includes blur-ays in 3D

Id say subjectively 20% better. :)

Brightness setting is actually just "black level". It's a misnomer. If your image is too bright you need to instead tweak the lamp to eco. Then additionally set the iris to a lower setting like...

Epson 5040UB ($2999) - e-Shift 4K, HDR10, WCG, Powered lens position memory

From a technical standpoint, the projector can't really discern the origin of the 4K source. So it is designed to take any 4K source.

The issue is the FORMAT in which the source is coded. That...

I can try.

My tests indicate it will eShift as follows:

I made a detailed test of 1080 vs eShift on the 5040 using Lucy bluray vs Lucy UHD. I will see if I find it again and post the screenshots. The difference is quantifiable. Not just subjective.
