Received answer from Optoma. They propose this fix (have not tried yet). The issue is present on both HDR and SDR on my projector though and their fix appears to be HDR

I'm guessing you have not had your projector calibrated.

That's correct. I might be expecting too much, but I would not expect that a calibration would be required to not have clearly visible issues on the image.

I do not think that will help. I have found a solution to all the issues namely: jump in brightness with DB2, colour clipping, brightness clipping.
I have an Oppo BDP203 and used its controls to get the DVS test patterns for HDR and S&M patterns for HD to look as they should. This lead me to set brightness +3, contrast -12 (I need to check as I am relying on memory) and Saturation -6 (also need to check) in the Oppo and then to fine tune with the VPR settings.
It also seems to have solved all banding issues in 4:2:2 and 4:2:0, but I had no time to test thoroughly. Picture is a lot darker, but the VPR is now mapping in HDR almost 10.000 nits (on 1000 nits master as per DVS specs).
I am not losing much on the lower end of the scale and colours seem to be ok, but you do not get the same dynamic picture as when you leave it clipping.
I still need time with it to test out more settings before settling with this solution. I would like to get it to clip around 1000 nits (as it should) and to have a brighter picture.


I will post my final thoughts once I have finished the tests, but would also like to hear others what they think of having the projector mapping the full brightness scale.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I wasn't implying that a calibration would have avoided the issue, although it might have, but I meant that doing what they told you to do would have deleted the calibration had you had one done.

Just purchased a Refurbished UHZ65 with C16 firmware

After reading reviews and a lot of research, I have purchased a refurbished UHZ65 to replace my UHD65. It will arrive next week.

This is the firmware that it has:

System: C16
LAN: C07
MCU: C04

I didn't see in this thread anything specific about the C16 firmware. Does anyone know if C16 is the latest and what did it fix?

Thank you!

I purchased my UHZ65 last year and the firmware is C11. Unfortunately the UHZ65 does not do ota firmware updates so you are basically stuck with the firmware you get unless you want to ship the thing back. I have not seen any details on firmware content.

UHZ65 Replacement or an Improved Optoma Laser based PJ Pending U.S. Release?

I'm nearly ready to buy a projector. Because of our room (not 100% blacked-out) and the nature of our planned viewing (several hours per day, mainly Netflix-like streaming), I'm interested in a PJ with a Laser Light source. Hence my UHZ65 interest.

The UHZ65 was released October, 2017.

Thus, before buying one, I thought I had better check if the UHZ65 was going to be replaced anytime soon, or if NOT that, then might another better spec'ed & perhaps higher priced Optoma Laser PJ be in the pipeline?

In a post about the Optoma ZK507, i asked whether the ZK507 may be a replacement for the UHZ65?
[https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-di...#post58681176]

In Post #34 of that thread, [https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-di...#post58720560], the following response was provided:

If I am not mistaken, we should be introduced to the UHZ880+in time for Christmas (at least on this side of the pond).
So, it appears that the UHZ880+ or UHZ886 may be UHZ65 replacements. Does anyone here know if that is true? And if so, will it be true for those of us in the U.S.? With the point being, to NOT buy a machine that will be superseded a mere few months after its purchase.

I just upgraded from C11 to C17.866 and its a great improvment.


With C11 when I was watching HDR movies and the picture was becoming darker, the picture brightness wasn't stable. Now the problem is totally solved and the general brightness of the projector seems also better.

Did you have to ship it to them for the firmware update or have they finally come out with a way to send you the update? If you had to send it to them about how long did it take? TIA!

So, going by what you posted, it seems the only real changes that the potential upcoming replacement models would bring would be 3D and slightly more lumens at the expense of contrast?

When I had my UHZ65, it had so many good qualities already, I thought: sharp, bright, clean, punchy, and very good dynamic contrast! Where I would like to see some improvements is in its DB2 mode so as to reduce brightness compression artifacts, and maybe employ a type of algorithm or other change in how the color wheel operates to reduce rainbow effect.

I don't know if the latest firmware (after C11) addresses any of those things, however.

I'm in China, so I had to ship it to the reseller. It took around 10 days but I'm glad I did it because it really solved all the issues that I had.


It might be a bit different than US, but in China we had C11, then C14, C16 and C17.866 that just came out, and I don't know which firmware made that significant change.

It would be very interesting to know what improvements the new firmware brings. Are you able to ask for the change log? From the firmware number it may even have introduced 3D as it's practically the same as on the UHZ880 and 886. Are you able to test this speculation of mine?

My New/Refurbished UHZ65 arrives this week with C16 firmware. I really wish Optoma would reveal the differences between C16 and C17.866 so I can determine if it is worth shipping it back to Optoma before I install the projector in my home theater to get it upgraded to C17.866.

At least we know there is some serious improvement from newer firmwares past C11 now based on your experience! Thank you for sharing!

I'm still not sure what the improvements are over C11 with the latest firmware. Does anyone have a link? I ask because while picture brightness/low light level locking up was an issue with the laser Acer early on (and that was remedied, I believe), it was never an issue with the FW C11 UHZ65 that I had.

I have an official reply from Optoma and it is confirmed that the latest firmware is C17. However, they were not able to give me a reply about the change log. By going around on official websites of Optoma, I think that they have added a function called super wide gamut 2 that should increase the dci p3 coverage to 84%, better performance with HDR content and possibly support of 3D at 120Hz. These improvements are all speculations of mine comparing different machines having equal characteristics and firmwares to the uhz65. I am having mine upgraded and returning it to the service centre mid November and should get it back on the 6th of December. Will report my findings during the Christmas holidays.

My UHZ65 just arrived today and I plan on installing it tonight (and I am excited!). Since mine should have firmware C16 out of the box, I will wait until I hear back on the specific differences between C16 and C17 before making a judgement to send it in for a firmware upgrade. Thank you for confirming that the latest firmware available is C17 at this time.

In the meantime, what is the most current settings recommended in this thread for the UHZ65 for a light controlled (dark) room?

Thanks!

Optoma's website for the UHZ65 has a new addition added to the product description. SDR - HDR conversion. Could you check to see if yours has that feature and how you think it works?

Thanks

Good luck with the update, and please report back with your impressions. I know that you have a few issues with yours, so hopefully they are corrected.

I am hesitant to send mine in again as I'm in Canada and Optoma contracts out the service to another company. I had a number of issues and went almost 3 months without a projector. Not sure if I want to risk it again. It really is unfortunate that the Firmware can't be upgraded by the end user.

I will say that Optoma USA did come through for me once I got in touch with them about the issues I was having dealing with the Canadian Service Center.

Best of luck.

That function has been there since day one and would suggest to avoid using it as it gives an unnatural look to the sdr content

I am lucky to have a great service centre just 100 km away from home and they performed the first upgrade and also corrected the gamma which was a little off. Never had an issue so I presume everything will go well this time around as well.

I think you might be talking about the HDR Sim Mode. That has always been there, and I agree that it doesn't work well and should be avoided.

There appears to be a new feature, SDR -> HDR under the Dynamic Range option menu...



Probably not something I would use, just curious as to how it works.

It would be great if someone was able to find out some detailed info about what has been changed with the recent Firmware.

@davedude . Thanks for checking. It may be something that was added with C17.

@Norixone . It is on the Optoma.com website for the UHZ65.

Hi!
Got issue with UHZ65.
Customer have a Bose Lifestyle 550 + Zappiti One + Optoma UHZ65.
I did programm Bose Remote to control all system, except one - Bose sends only ONE command to Turn PJ Off. But PJ needs - Two.
Do have anybody same problem? How can I fix it?

MCU: C04

I didn't see in this thread anything specific about the C16 firmware. Does anyone know if C16 is the latest and what did it fix?

Thank you!
Could you please post a picture of the info menu showing the firmware? Optoma UK seems to be denying the availability of this firmware as well as of any other one other than C08.

Thank you
