When I first connected the player and loaded a disc, the image looked smokey.
I didn't understand what was going on right away but now I think I have got a pretty good grip on it now.
OPPO 203 set to 1080 auto. I could set this to straight auto and let the HDMI handshake do it's thing.
HDR slide is now set at 100 nits and brightness and contrast are set using the player controls. So yes I am converting HDR back to SDR in the player.
Projector is still the same old BenQ W6000 I have used since 2011.
I have done a full calibration again this morning. I prefer to use controls in the service menu rather than those in the user menus because there is far greater control there.
I used the HDR-10 patterns I have on a USB as the source.
Gamma is currently set to 2.4 but I think you can change that for your environment. 2.4 is working in my room as the projector controls are all default to 50 and the OPPO contrast is only +1. Brightness is 0.
My projector does not like 2020 patterns at 100%, so I had to use 75% and it mapped out to rec709. I did that percentage thing to set all the colours where if white is 100%, red is 21, green is 72 etc.
But the biggest differce is having the white point at D6500K or x:0.313, y:0.329.
There was a new FW update this morning and I believe that is the new tone mapping. I think I prefer mode 2 at this time.
What I did notice is that the slider rolls off the top end of the curve making it into an S when normally we would have a smooth transition from black to white.
Yes this preserves the highlights and so the big question on my mind right now is - apart from the extra rez of 4k, why do we even want a HDR capable displays. Surely as long as it does 2020, this level of processing seems to be a winner.
Right now, the only thing bugging me about using a 1080p over something that is 2160p is I can see jaggies on angles and text. You just don't really see that on 4k.
So this upgrade has certainly been worth the time and effort.
The 21:9 mode is doing something weird too. Geometry is perfect using real or 1:1 mapping on the projector. If I go to the FULL mode and use letterbox on the projector, there is a geometry error.
