If your walls and ceiling are dark, then you should be looking at a white screen.

Thanks Mike, but what about loss of blacks with a 1.3 gain if the room isn't completely reflective free?

You do not have to have a room that is completely free of reflections to use a white screen. Yes, improving the room will provide an improvement, but from what you described, you are mostly there. A 1.3 gain ST130 white screen is going to provide you a better image in your room than a 1.2 gain Slate screen. Especially for HDR.

Do you know if a SI Solar white 1.3 gain would be equal to the Stewart ST130?

ST130 is considered the reference standard.

Take a look at my theater ( link in signature ) - it's not totally black, but it's black where it counts and dark grey everywhere else. And white screens work just fine.

WOW, what a great set up. Something for all to aspire too!. The screen shots are fantastic, and your choice of content is very similar to mine. All the movies shown are in my top catalogue.

Thank you. I've been improving the same theater for 10+ years. And I have a dedicated bunch of friends that love coming over to watch movies ! They even bring wine .

Does Sony show a firmware update newer than what you have? As for handshaking issues, need to know what issue? If talking about a slight video delay, that is normal. If you are talking dropout, I would be looking into your HDMI cable.

Do you already have an existing mount or starting out fresh? You could also build a box and never buy a mount ever again. Just need an adapter plate because your holes do not line up? <<< Click Here >>> to be linked to pics and details on universal adapter plate and projector box with instructions.

There have been no firmware updates released by Sony for the 695ES. I have no handshaking issues with my 695ES, and I am guessing that your handshaking issues are caused by your HDMI cable.

Hello, everyone.

I am having a HDMI handshaking issue with Apple TV 4k. Sometimes I have a blinking picture and sometimes sudden loss of signal(black screen) but the sound still continues to play. When I press stop or any buttons on Apple TV 4k remote control, it will come back to main screen of Apple TV 4k.
The HDMI cable from Apple TV 4k to Trinnov AL32 is Palic 8800 model 1.5 meters and the HDMI cable from Trinnov AL32 to 695ES is Pixelgen 4k(THX certified) 5 meters. I don't have any blinking pictures or sudden loss of signal(black screen) with Pioneer LX-500 with the same Palic 8800 model 1.5 meters.

All equipments are updated to latest firmware. Is this a bug or glitch of Apple TV 4k?

Someone suggest to me that Belkin Ultra HD High Speed HDMI® Cable (AV10175bt2M-BLK) can solve this HDMI handshaking issue completely.

Should I buy this Belkin HDMI cable?
Has anyone ever experienced this issue like me?

Thank you for your help.
