You must be a youngster. Have you forgotten "Quadraphonic" and "Quadrisonic" (sp?) and "SQ" and "QS" and "CD-4"? These were real, marketed, 4-channel systems in the early 1970s. My father had a setup...

I love my Sony 600ES projector, but, having suffered through the X1 & X10, I will never buy a source device from them again.

I'm not versed in the model numbers, but the general answer is that there is no longer a Native setting on any of the X1 boxes. It's a bummer.

I tried the Darblet on my Sony 600ES PJ and eventually decided it wasn't needed. To my eyes, the 600 presents a beautiful picture without outside help.

I put the Darblet on an older Sharp LCD TV...

Harmony remotes don't want you to turn devices on manually. The Harmony keeps track of the on/off state of your devices. It will be constantly out of sync with the true state of your devices unless...

This isn't quite right. Activities are not macros. A macro is a sequential execution of commands. Harmony calls these Sequences.

Activities provide control over a set of Devices which participate...

I'm guessing this is your first Harmony remote. Using a Harmony, you do not want to "be on" a Device. You want to be "in" an Activity.

After adding your Devices, you must set up an Activity, e.g.,...

^ Maybe forget about trying to place the hub & blasters to reach everything. Have you tried using the remote itself to emit IR? You can set that on a per-device basis.

Get a head lamp (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=a9_asi_1?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aheadlamp&keywords=headlamp&ie=UTF8&qid=1482013811). Very handy. I have one for my equipment rack and one for my attic.

Um, yes, as stated in the 2nd sentence of my previous post.

Passing through Oppo UDP-203

I am currently running my X10 connected directly to my VPL-VW600ES projector's HDMI2 port. This is fine because the X10 is currently my only 4K source (and my Marantz 8801 pre/pro is not HDCP 2.2...

Is there a printed manual in the box, or should I print the PDF manual in anticipation?

Pretty strange you're seeing 3840p. UHD is 2160, double that of HD's 1080. 3840 would be the number of pixels in a horizontal row, as opposed to the 2160 pixels in a vertical column.
