Ok, I think I am understanding things, so help me out with something that will determine some of my setup.
With UHD content, what players are you folks using?
Despite not having true 4k panels, the JVC x790 accepts a full 4k signal, correct?
So if you input a 4k signal and use eShift it will look better than if you downscaled 4k to 1080p and fed it into the x790 and did not use eShift?
I didn't realize that feeding the x790 4k and then using eShift is not the same as, and better than just upscaling 1080p (whether originally 4k or not). And yes, I know about HDR, but I am just talking resolutions now. I guess I will have to get into the HDR options later. I guess I could have asked about this in the thread regarding the x790 but I suppose it's ok because I am getting feedback from other eShift users including some with other PJ's.
I bought an Epson 1080 UB around 12 years ago and used it briefly, then bought a JVC RS40 and didn't even open the box before having to move (to a house that unfortunately was not projector friendly). Now I will be selling my Sony HW-45ES with less than 25 hours on it! I liked the smooth yet sharp look of the Sony but the black levels and contrast were not to my liking. I am hoping I love this PJ and look forward to an NX _ in 2-3 years with a contrast ratio of close to 1,300,000:1 and nice deep black levels.
