The actual video on the disc is encoded at 10bit 4:2:0 so anything past that is just padded information. There really isn't anything to be gained even if your display can accept it.

The issue is not necessarily the DMD, it's what that means for everything else. The DMD being larger makes it so that every piece in the light engine also needs to be larger, especially optical...

The guess I have about why the DI doesn't really work with HDR is that when the DI is engaged it also uses dynamic gamma to help alleviate brightness compression caused by the iris closing down....

The reduction in visible aliasing will only be visible if you keep the same (or relatively the same) size screen. Because aliasing doesn't really go away, it's more that the pixel density increases...

I think it's fair to say that the raw image quality of this projector will outperform the new pseudo 4K machines from Optoma and BenQ. They're using the smaller DMD. Contrast will be worse. I'd...

You could try and blow some compressed air in from around the lens. Other that that, you'd have to take it apart to get it off which ever surface it's on.

It comes in handy when I want to keep something like director's commentary or something like that. I'll reencode that from Dolby Digital to aac and save a bunch more space.

Most people use MakeMKV but if you're more technically inclined I'd recommend eac3to. You need to use command prompt with it but it's far more versatile.

If you're looking to step up to a 3 chip DLP at a cheaper price compared to the Sim2 units. I'd look into the Digital Projection Cine 260HC.
