I am missing that in the Philips.
Yes resolution of the source material will remain unchanged when using Source Direct. That means 4k output for UHD, 1080p output for standard Blu-ray, and 480p output for DVD. This may or may not be recommended for most 4K displays, but the Epsons are not true 4K,
and scaling signals in the player once and then again in the projector could yield worse results rather than letting the pj just scale them once before applying eShift. It's always best to try it different ways though, and use your own source of judgement.

Just curios is the Oppo does better than the Epson.
I honestly have not specifically tried that with my Epson 5040 yet. I would wager an educated guess that it's probably better to not scale it to 4K in the player and just send it as 1080p with Darbee enhancement. If sending the 4K signal to the Epson, the Epson will have to downscale it back to 1080p anyway before applying eShift. Also be careful with using Darbee AND the sharpening enhancements of the Epson.
Too many enhancements will cause picture degradation and artifacts.

The Strip Metadata feature of the Oppo is still being worked on. Whatever anomalies you see will be corrected in time. It's impossible to know how long that will take, but Oppo is working all issues. They are very proactive in that regard.
