The converter I was looking at was an HD Fury Integral which seems like it can transfer the 4k signal and simply decodes the 2.2 into 1.4, but I wasn't sure if that could work with the Epson 5040ub HDMI inputs and still provide the 4k image quality. If not, I will just bite the bullet and re-fish a new hdmi cable.
Cables are about bandwidth, and really aren't specifically related to resolution/HDCP/HDR etc...
It just happens to be that 4K @ 60Hz with 4:4:4 is going to require the most bandwidth to travel through a cable,
so potentially you need to have a cable that can transport those signals.
My advice would be to try your cable first before buying a HDfury.
There are also other methods too, like I think Monoprice sells a cheaper HDCP 2.2=>1.4 converter,
but I have not used it and do not know any details about it. Maybe the HDfury is a better product if you choose to go that route.
Even if you are able to send something like 4K/4:2:0/8b via HDMI 1.4 to the Epson, you could still probably use the HDMI-1 input.
However nothing is guaranteed these days, and the only way to know for sure is to try it first hand.
Again once I get some time I can try pushing upscaled 4K from my Oppo BDP-105D to the 5040 and see what happens.
