Well, got my Samsung K8500 today and was expecting a nightmare especially since I know I had to connect directly to the projector since my avr is not hdmi 2.0. I got the same issue with the setup menu which I had to switch to edid b and set up in 1080p. I did not do the firmware update. I set everything to auto on the Samsung and the JVC. I changed to edid a, put in a disc and it started playing. The disc I used was The Martian UHD Blu ray. The cable used was a 12' Monster Black Platinum connected directly to projector on HDMI 1. Picture Mode I set to Natural. Samsung set to Gamma D, I put in high lamp mode, DI to 0 auto 2, brightness and contrast maxed out to 50. Picture is a little dim overall but very watchable. I'm attaching 2 screenshots. This was during the day in a semi-light controlled environment. For the time being I'm using my rs600 on the wall, no special paint ( I know I'm crazy, but It still looks incredible and I do plan on getting a proper screen after researching the heck out of my options ).
