I just took the plunge upgrading from and old black pearl, and while the pic is better, I am at a complete loss with Sony's quality and commitment to the point of having buyers remorse. I am with most in this thread. Bought as a multipurpose for gaming and movies.
2. Both XBox One S and PS4 Pro read HDR > Incompatible. I forced HDR in the proj menu and both consoles still reported Incompatible and the pic was horrible. Everything was way over saturated. Anyone experience the same and can share some settings update to correct or their experience?
Agreed, a 10.2 Gbps chip is ridiculous in a 4K $10K projector! It should still be workable though in today's environment.
It looks way over saturated because you forced HDR on a non-HDR signal.
Make sure to set your Xbox to 4K 10 bit iirc. What are you trying to play on it, UHD movies or games? Movies should be able to play at 4K24p HDR WCG 4:2:2 10 bit since it's under the 10.2 Gbps limit. It's been awhile since I've had our Xbox 1S in our theater so don't feel confident replying on that.
I just read some comments by member
over on an Xbox 1S thread talking about all the different modes it can output for various sources. I think it's from back in Feb. I'll see if I can find the link.
I think this is really more about the implementation in the Xbox than the 365, at least for UHD movies anyway. If you used a dedicated UHD Bluray player you wouldn't have issues connecting and playing HDR with those. The 60p limitation on games is real though and I think only an HDFury device can assist with that. You *may* be able to force the xbox1s into 4K60p 8 bit mode which the 365 should be able to accept.
First thing I would try though is to take your Xbox and connect it directly to the 365 with a short, known high speed HDMI cable to eliminate the possibility that it could be your in wall MonsterCable HDMI.
Also, be 100% sure you're connected to the proper HDMI input (#2) that offers HDCP 2.2/HDR compatibility.
P.S. - here's the link:
