Sheldon, pull up some movies with lots of night scenes. I’m using the 4k disks of How to Train your Dragon 3, and The Great Wall to test.

I know you said you were hands off on the HDR slider but I was still basically unhappy with the picture in HDR even with the Panasonics tone mapping and hours and hours of tinkering. Just eliminating it all together is best in my opinion, on my setup. This is Dreamliners experience and I think Kris Deering of Sound and Vision’s recommendation as well.

@SBuger . Give this a shot too. It wont be as colorful as the dynamic variant of hypervision you are using, but it’ll be more accurate and have none of the shadowy gamma foggish feel or dark muddiness that HDR brings to the table on our limited HDMI chipset.

I like my 5040ub in basically default natural mode with image enhancement on level 3 (from 1 default) and color bumped to 52-55 (from 50 default). I also like Dynamic Iris on High (from default of Off)
This is now the same for everything. No more futzing with it multiple times during the 4K HDR movie, or feeling UGHHHHH this too dark and what is that fog sheen that happens when I try to turn up the brightness.

I use the settings below with the best satisfaction I’ve found so far with 4k disks on this projector.

Thanks for the shout and info, Archaea!! Now if I only had a Panny. I'm still loving that crazy HV mod I’ve been running, but might be worth picking up a 420 to try this out Sounds like it works great!!

EDIT: oh yeah, the Panny’s won’t play Atmos on lossless MKV’s and I have quite a few. Darn, but I am using just the disc a lot more these days so could work well for those at least, if I like it better

I remember and give thanks to God each night for this miracle invention, and all children are outfitted with these now when entering my home, but Amazon does not have a time machine available for delivery on 2 day shipping and I refuse to wait a day longer or pay the extra 147.52 for standard shipping for non- Prime items. So removal of the orange stain is not an option.

Hey guys! I just moved back to the KC area after about a decade away and thought I'd introduce myself. I've been big into the audio and video world (Residential, commercial, & vehicular) for a very long time now. I haven't cared to keep up 110% on things like HDR and such..as technology can be the biggest time vampire ever if you let it be. At some point you need to simply relax and enjoy your current setup. I spent the previous 7 years building an awesome little Atmos 7.1.4 based setup, that I'm leaving behind. I have plenty of space to build in at my new house, but I plan to keep things relatively simple with a more minimalist Atmos 7.1.4, and a 2ch setup. I've met Archaea before, but I'm looking forward to getting out and meeting some more of ya'll.

This is the only photo I have on the internet of the theater I'm mothballing and leaving behind. I'll make a build thread for it eventually.


Couple of side notes;

As much as I like Mono Price for various components, I would push everyone on this forum looking for quality wire at a great price to consider using Knukonceptz. Especially for CL3/In-wall rated wiring. Pricing is virtually the same. I don't actually think a higher quality wire exists than this, as I use Knu for all my wiring needs. The difference is night and day between their wire and any competitors. I can provide physical samples for anyone wanting to see it firsthand, but Knukonceptz CL3's "jacket" is a fully molded, thick, integrated part of the wire. No actual separate, flimsy jacket. Just a huge gob of awesomely flexible rubberized plastic integrated around the wiring. It can take a beating, and protects the wire in so many more ways than a simple jacket. The wire itself is vastly superior as well. 12ga Knu has 294 strands, whereas MP has something like 130. No comparison. Check it out!

We are going to need to chat!

Welcome back to the area Ryan.

I've been laughing out loud at these Screen Rant Pitches on YouTube. I've only watched a few, but the one's I've seen have been good.


Try a couple, and see if you enjoy.

Good news! I'm very close to being done with hanging drywall in my basement (theater has been done with drywall for a while)!

I have an extra 5 gallon bucket of green glue that I've had sitting around for a while that I was looking to sell if anyone local wants it. Looking at green glue's site it says it has a shelf-life of a year, but if properly kept will last longer. I purchased it in august of 2015, but it's been sitting in my dark cool basement and I'm confident that it is still effective since I had half of one of those buckets being stored that I popped open to green glue the final sheets in the entertainment room (wall that is shared between that room and theater). It was still good to go, even after being opened. This 5gallon bucket has not been opened.

5 gallon buckets go for $240 a piece via soundproofing company (last i checked in 2015 lol) so would sell for $190.

Hodor Theater is out of commission for the next week or two since I had to send my projector into JVC.



So many shows to watch, and most of them are HDR or have Atmos, so I want to watch them in the theater.

That sucks. I only have 4K on my leaving room TV so the wife and I have to share it. I watched a few 4K movies on it, but not as nice as when I watched Alita Battle Angle in your theater. Has other people been having issues with the JVC NX7?

Some here and there. There were more issues early on after it was first released that have been ironed out. I've just been unlucky.

I was so mad in the first quarter, then the second quarter happened and it got better. Mahomes was the big part of that turn around. He and Kelsey were telling everyone not to get done.

Going to be another tough one this coming Sunday.
