lol ! Those 3D movies like Coraline used analgyph glasses. They require those colored cheap glasses and look terrible. What you want is the newer 3D movies that state Bluray3d on the cover. Completely different technologies.

Pro tip: To focus, Click on the Pattern button to display pattern on screen. The pattern is displayed with 4K enhancement OFF, and the individual pixels are distinguishable this way, making it so much easier to perfectly focus.

Is the Panasonic UB900 or 700 a good combi with this projector for UHD blurays?
I don't want to pay 600€ more for an Oppo.

Will I get HDR with the Pana, and no banding?

HDFury Linker XBox One S experience

I just got the HDFury Linker and started to play with it a bit together with the XBox One S and the 6040ube. I am not there yet but i would like to share what I have experienced so far. If someone is interested I took some screeshots of the projector and linker info and posted them on a German forum. Screenshots are also in German but you will get the point. HIFI-Forum link

Outcome so far:
1. Xbox shows full compatibility to 4k and HDR content with the linker directly connected to the wireless box (I got a receiver in between but its set to not upscale)
2. no HDR with the game I tested (FF15). HDR is not even sent from the XBox but from what I have read FF15 should be in HDR
3. there is something strange going on having BT709 as input and BT2020 as output from the linker. That sounds to me kinda impossible beside "faking" the signal to BT2020 even though the color space is still BT709
3. Both games and Netflix are 8bit. This was to be expected since the projector is limited to 8bit with 60Hz. Interesting to see is that even if 10/12 bit is sent to the projector it seems to "downscale" it to 8bit but plays well. In other words the bandwidth of the wireless connection can't be the limiting factor since the 10/12bit get transmitted (or the wireless box is already downscaling it but I doubt that). It's the HDMI chip itself or better Epson who restricted it to 8bit at 60Hz. At least the wireless chip was reported to be able to handle 10/12bit at 60Hz.
4. With Netflix I get BT2020 and HDR2. I am just curios if this even makes sense at 8bit

I am going to play more around with the Linker settings and I did no projector calibration at all with the linker in between so far. But not looking at the numbers and just from the first look with linker but without calibration it did not look impressive at all (or even worse) with 8bit even with BT2020 and HDR. It comes all back to streaming like Netflix UHD content and gaming is in 60Hz and thats limited to 8bit by the projector

You don't even have to spend the $'s for either of the pannys as the Phillips is available for around $150 and delivers 4K HDR on UHD titles. It doesn't "strip" the HDR header information like the Oppo 203 can do but it's also a fraction of the cost. I think the 203 also has an issue with red-push when stripping HDR making it essentially useless for that function until Oppo corrects it. You will have to change the HDR on the 5040 to HDR1 instead of HDR2 but that's prety much it unless you want to fine tune the other projector settings as others have outlined here.

Appreciate the info on the 3D glasses as I'm looking at returning the Samsung 5150 for these or the Xpand 3D glasses. Don't really care for the Samsung's.

Separate question for you re: Oppo 203 with 5040. I noticed you were a beta tester and posted about your experience with HDR stripping. I'm guessing you've seen recent posts in the Oppo thread about this where it may not actually be passing WCG 2020 but instead just passing 709. Interested in your recent thoughts on this based on your experiences. Do you still notice a difference? Is it still very good? Do you let Oppo handle the conversion or the pj? What about impressions I'm general with the 5040?

My 203 should arrive on Wed. I've never had an Oppo (use PS4 currently) and have never seen a 4k disc on this pj yet - just upscaled Blu-ray. I have a 110" 2.35 screen and love the picture I get currently (basic cal via S&M, not professional). I'd be interested in what settings you are using with the 203 (I.e Auto, Direct, 4:4:4, 4:2:2, etc).

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Most of those questions can be a mixed bag of nuts because you can go in different directions with different things.
I haven't really played much with Strip Metadata feature of the 203 lately, but...
I know it works and is also still a work in progress. I don't really see any major red push going to the 5040,
but this could have changed in the last few fw revisions, I'm not really sure.
I truly have confidence that Oppo will get it sorted out soon. You can be the judge for yourself when you get it and try it out.
(I don't think the bt2020 flag is false though. That is just people talking out of the wrong end of their body.)

Generally I let Oppo do the heavy lifting with upscaling, but again this can be tricky since the 5040 will be doing
conversion no matter what since it's not true 4K. I would try things both ways in your own setup and see what you like better.
Different ways of sending standard Blu-ray content would be Source Direct, or different iteration of Deep Color and Color Space along
with Custom 1080p, or scale it to 4K. Both Oppo and Epson have great scaling so one really isn't better than the other.
At one time, I think I thought sending Blu-ray at 1080p to the Epson looked better, but that is no official statement.
However for UHD Blu-ray I pretty much just send Source Direct.

One good thing about the Oppo is that the AUTO settings are very good. You can't really go wrong using them.
Since the Epson is limited on what it can accept, the Oppo receives the proper metadata for the Epson and sends the proper signals.
You will love what UHD looks like with the Epson. The darkness of HDR can be calibrated somewhat,
but try it with and without and decide for yourself.
Personally I tend to watch bright UHD content WITH HDR and darker movies WITHOUT HDR.
With the way I do stuff, and testing things and whatnot, I am always changing stuff, so my settings are a bit of a moving target.

You will get a drastic upgrade in picture quality with the Epson. I had the W1070 as well and was hesitant on the Epson because I wasn't sure if it would be worth it. But after a few minutes with the Epson, I knew I couldn't go back. You will notice the difference in brightness and clarity. I can actually watch Directv with lights on, whereas before it would have to be somewhat dim with the W1070. The colors pop and the 1080p blu rays look incredible upscaled. 4K blu rays obviously look the best, my favorite so far is X-men: Apocalypse. I watched a few 3D blu rays as well and it is simply impressive. Anyway, I've posted some pics in this forum. (I may have even posted some comparison pics with the BenQ.) My suggestion is to get off the fence and get the Epson. (Sorry, I can't comment on the Sony.)

Thank you for the advice. I'm going to look back to see if I can find some pictures.

The main drawback is the price of course. But if it's really that good then I might make the jump. Also for the lens memory for my next AT 2.35 screen.

Official Epson 5040ub/6040ub owners thread

Maybe I've just gotten used to this projector, but I'm now finding 24p content motion way more acceptable. What gives. Huh?

Also I upgraded from PS3 to PS4pro recently. Don't think that has anything to do with it. But who knows.

Setup: Epson 5040 UB, 110" SilverTicket AT screen, PS3 bluray, Yamaha RX-V673 AVR, Polk and Athena speakers, Batcave room.

I must say, I have not done any drastic color adjustments, but I am really enjoying the picture quality on this projector. I am using a 110" ALR screen (material purchased from Carl's Place). All I did was set the color to Cinema mode and bulb brightness on Eco. Contrast and overall brightness are great. Image sharpness are outstanding. I have not been able to test 4K or HDR capabilities yet as I don't have a capable player or AVR yet.

If I had to complain about something, I do see some minor banding on streaming sources (e.g. FireTV, both content and menus) and I have noted some minor, intermittent motion jumpiness on Blu-Ray movies. Otherwise, looks beautiful!

Problem is that for some weird reason the Philips uhd player is not available in europe, or I can't find it.
So its samsung, Panasonic or Oppo.

Seems the Panasonic outputs uhd bluray only in 4:4:4 12bit so I think I will have problems playing UHD with hdr on the epson or am I wrong?

AH, I don't think we knew your location as it's not displayed in your profile or avatar signature so no issue there. The Pana and Samsungs are your only options. The Samssung with old fimrware will need to be updated to the latest frimware in order for it to be used so if you do buy one of those (likely around 150-200GBP) then make CERTAIN you update the firmware before using it.

Others have stated here in this thread or the other 5040 thread that the Panny's output is not an issue as the projector then converts the 12 4:4:4 to 10-bit 4:2:2 (I think) which IS a valid format for the Epson. Of course, this is all in the 24Hz range as ALL the dedicated UHD players conform to that signal. Ignore any members who may try to take this conversation into the 60Hz realm as it is not applicable to the UHD players themselves but is rather, an issue realated to the individual streaming options which are more controlled by the providers of those streaming services than they are the formatting of the UHD disk content itself. Hope this helps!

I have the UBe and was planning on one day getting the HDLinker Fury if it helps. I've been waiting for others to give it a try and do all the hard stuff in advance.

Perhaps someone has had the same problem and can help me with this. When I stream 1080p content from my Roku 4 (via Vudu or Netflix) to my 5040, the picture is jittery. And it's not the internet because we have ultra high speed and when I stream 4k to the projector from Netflix it looks terrific. Do I have something set wrong?

5040ub locks up

Hey everyone.

Recent upgrade from a Optoma HD25-LV to the Epson 5040UB. What a difference! The picture is not only brighter, but way more punchier colors and the detail improvement is amazing.

Anyway, ran into an issue last night that I am able to replicate every time. I stored 3 different custom settings/modes on the projector. One using Bright Cinema, one using Digital Cinema, and one using Neutral. Basically the projector locks up, doesn't throw an image, and is unresponsive whenever i try to use the Neutral mode, or when i switch away from the neutral mode. the only thing "special" about my Neutral setting is the iris is closed down to -10. just putting it here to see if anybody else can replicate this issue or if its limited to mine.

I believe that your issue is related to memory settings rather than the neutral mode itself and others have run into this so... search this and the other 5040 thread to find others who had similar issues. You can simply type in a logical phrase like "lock up" and find a large number of posts related to 5040s locking up. Hope this helps.

Known major issue. I reported this one first. Do you have latest Epson firmware? They claim to have fixed it. I upgraded and it seems to have fixed it for me. One other member here however claims to continue having issues.

If you upgraded and still have lock ups PLEASE CALL EPSON SUPPORT ASAP. This is a number one priority issue for them and would likely want to hear your particular story and setup.

gnolivos thanks for the note. I tried to search for it and couldn't find anything but this thread is a bit long and admit to skipping a few pages here and there as i read through it.

Anyway, will try to upgrade firmware when i get home tonight and will let you know if it solves it. if not, Ill be sure to contact epson.

CORRECTION--this WAS the solution. I just tried the link and it is dead. You will have to contact Epson. They only seem to leave the updates up fpr a limited amount of time...sorry. At least you can reference the update file...

This was the resolution for me and at least some others...you are looking for the update binary ending in ".104"...

For those who may have this issue...

I got an email yesterday from R. Marquez at Epson with a link to the firmware update.

http://download2.ebz.epson.net/dsc/v..._t5108_104.bin

I went to the web page and downloaded the .bin file, copied it to USB, and installed it.

Just sharing here as my projector is also the 5040 and glasses came up a bunch recently.
Excellent, thorough, and helpful review! Thanks!

Does anyone else get a slight hum when viewing 4K content at 60hz? Noticed with my gaming PC at 4K 60hz.

You do not have to search that way (page by page). There is a SEARCH utility/application at the top right hand corner of this thread that says "SEARCH THIS THREAD". Click on that and enter the words..
LOCK UP

the search feature will then show you ONLY the POSTS in this thread that have those EXACT words in it. That ways you can read only those post and not have to search through EVERY post in here

Hey guys,

I'm very interested in the 6040 but it looks like there are currently only two places to buy it online. Why is this? Is it because it's aimed at the custom install market? Will it become more popular?

The 6040ub is designated as a model that can be calibrated so it is typically only sold by higher end retailers who posses such abilities rather than by "box mover" websites. However, there are a number of vendors here on this forum that can sell you one and can help put you in touch with qualified individuals capable of providing calibration services should you desire

thanks ndabunka. I'm not looking to buy until a bonus comes in march, so I've got time. Definitely got to have the black and I like the idea that it comes with a mount. My current mount has some shortcomings. Would you say the 6040 comes calibrated the same out of box as the 5040 and it's as friendly for user calibrations? I'm not likely to get it professionally calibrated unless it's really necessary.
