At this point, I wouldn't count on it. I believe there has only been two software updates so far. A day one out of the box firmware update and another that was "supposed" to fix some of the HDMI handshaking issues. I also still have exactly half of my screen totally wig out when messing with the settings, mostly when changing color temperature. This never happens if I'm not changing any settings.
I just checked and the last firmware/software update was on 11/06/2019 (Version C12). That isn't promising. Two updates in a month after it being out then nothing. Heck, someone from Optoma told me it was because I was using the HDMI cable that came IN the box... I had two other higher quality cables, didn't matter, same issues. I don't use ARC because my roughly 12 year old Pioneer receiving can't do ARC. I am kind of glad it doesn't. Yes, I'm limited to Dolby Digital and DTS but if I pair it with the soundbar right it sounds very good. Not near as good as three front speakers dialed in but I can tweak it everything so its close to being level. I'm currently debating a new center or a lower cabinet so I can mount the screen lower.
I knew there was an offset ratio, but depending on the unit, but 3/12 inches for a 100" screen. I think they took down the calculator they originally had. The measurement guide I have has 13 1/2 inches being the lowest for a 100"s and 17 being the highest. That can make a huge deal. I think 18 was the lowest for 120 but people were saying it was closer to 22/23"s.
The picture quality is amazing, especially HDR. The ALR screen
technology in general is amazing. The soundbar is pretty good but not needed and drove up the price. They should of put a speaker input jack so you could at least use it as a center if you wanted.
The "smart" apps are limited to 480p so I don't eve use them but just the software/firmware to run the thing feels unfinished and I'm not holding my breath on another firmware update. I hope I am wrong. The other thing is I find myself constantly playing around with the picture settings. Some content just looks better with a different color temperature or the brightness and contract slightly adjusted. I hardly use anything but 2.4 gamma but Video does make it brighter but the picture looks a little more washed out.
