Ok, I am a bit confused here. I have been eyeing this model for a while, expecting to get FI on 4k sources downscaled to 1080p.
If it doesn't work on 4k, then what is the point of the projector in the first place?
Why not just buy a higher end 2k model for the same price or less?
Maybe this is old news, but there are so many damn posts in this thread it's a full time job reading them so I have to skim.
I wanted to send UHD BD to this projector and expected to see it converted to 2k and than interpolated.
I already have a fantastic 2k pj. It's several years old, but I don't want to spend $3k just to get HDR and lens memory.
Heck UHD players will likely have HDR->SDR conversion soon anyway.
What am I missing here??
EDIT: I just realized that I could use a top quality player that does SDR conversion when one is released,
send the 2k signal to the pj, and then have the pj do FI.
It just seems odd to me that the 5040 can convert 4k to 2k, and it can do FI on 2k, but it can't do FI on signals converted to 2k?
That just doesn't make any sense.
