And since I'm here, these are my impressions after a bit more tweaking and watching a complete movie on the 820:
Tweaking, thanks for the tips on the test patterns found on Sony discs, that was helpful in fine-tuning the settings on the 820 and the PJ (JVC 4810).
Since my Sony disc happened to be 'Passengers' and it had been a while since I watched it (pre-Atmos rig and pre-Panny), that was what played in the theater last night. And WOW! was that immersive, the visuals are so rich and the tone-mapped HDR really pops on this flick with lots of space scenes. I've never seen an image look this good in my theater.
The Atmos soundtrack must be really good, as I hardly noticed the sound (and I'm very picky there). The room shook a few times when called for, one notices that (I run an Infinite Baffle sub + 3 other subs, including 2x MBMs), but the Atmos mix was so seamless, it all just melded with the picture and we were in the movie the entire time.
But back to the 820, it's just downright amazing what it does for those of us with 1080p input projectors. I feel like I just got a new PJ.
