Just another update. Still having weird issues. HDR just quit working last night but that might be my fault. I changed the color settings in the Xbox menu from 10 bit to 12 bit. after that HDR did not work. I switched it back to 10 bit but HDR still wouldn't work. after a couple of reboots, a different cable, and a different port HDR finally started working but I'm getting odd dropouts. I'm thinking it's either the actual HDMI port itself, or it's a software issue.
I haven't got a chance to play any games yet but is there any good tool out there to test latency? Just a personal preference but I'm not a fan of pure motion due to the soap opera effect so I'll always have that set to zero.
Edit: I noticed that when I wasn't getting HDR the input option in the menu showed it has no signal even though video is playing. If anyone else has this issue with HDR check there. This shows the input resultion and color (HDR vs SDR).
I might try to get in touch with Optoma today if I have time. I'm really hoping these are just software issues and not hardware related.
Putting the issues those issues aside it's a great projector. You're definitely going to need an ALR screen though unless you have a bat cave. The biggest issue as I have white ceilings and the light bouncing off the ceiling is very brightand causes a bit of wash out at the top of the image even in a dark environment.
This is the first projector I've actually seen where I've noticed HDR. I've got a roughly 2-year-old Vizio but I've only slightly noticed the improvements with HDR on that TV set. It was really noticeable on the P1. I haven't tried outgoing yet so I'm a bit worried about the lag time but we will see. This thing definitely wasn't ready from a software standpoint. The app store is a complete joke and a waste of time. The sound bar actually sounds amazing but as most of already stated I've got i-5.1 setup so this is sort of a mute point. This truly could be a TV replacement for a non-audio buff. I personally thought it sounded as good as the Sonos sound bar but it'll need a subwoofer if you want any bass.
The bottom of the image is higher than I would like. I understand due to the manufacturing that every projectors not going to be the same but using the ruler they sent I'm using the bottom mark of 120 for a roughly 100 inch screen and it's 13 inches from the wall.
I think with some firmware updates this thing might end up being a great projector. I could be wrong and I could be having hardware issues but I will have to figure that out. Don't let my bad experience deter you from buying this projector as it seems like most people are not having this issue.
I tried to set it up with Alexa but optima makes it a huge hassle. You have to create a cloud account with optima. Before that you have to register your device which should be done anyways for the warranty, but after that it keeps telling me my device isn't registered so I can't use the Alexa skill. I still need to try and set this up on my Logitech remote so I can see IR actually works. Probably going to try and set it up in Hass.io later after I get off work.
There is quite a bit of screen flickering and weirdness when you mess around in the settings and change anything. This is somewhat understandable but it seems like it almost stops displaying the image to adjust to the new settings then comes back on. With HDMI I get a lot of screen going in and out when changing settings but a quickly goes away. The lower two screenshots, one is showing how much light gets reflected in the ceiling, this was to be expected but it's much better in person than it is in the picture. I'm using a Stewart Firehawk screen and previous posters and told me this would not be a good screen for UST.
