Since I'm considering getting this projector I went to a local AV dealer and had a 3D demo of the 6040 on a Slate .8 screen.

I didn't notice any ghosting and thought it looked fantastic.

The problem I'm having now is trying to get the old cable to pull out from the wall. I attached the new cable to the old and pulled it through but it's hanging up on something. The hole holds 7 cables, so maybe the new HDMI connection that is attached to the old HDMI connection is hanging up on the edge of the hole...who the hell knows. It's behind the screen and I hope I don't have to cut into the wall.

Man see things as they are n say why. I dream of things that never were, n say why not ....... A Perfect PROJECTOR

So, waiting for the 3rd period to start in the Blues vs Wild Stanley Cup Playoff Game 1 and thought I would bring up this always interesting topic while I'm bored....

Is HDMI Extended or Auto/Normal the right choice?
If it's Auto/Normal, does that mean SuperWhite should be ON?

Of course there are varying opinions, even from countless posts I've read from others that have indicated they are professional calibrators, but what I'm looking for is the CORRECT answer based on this projector. And to make it as objective as possible let's limit the source to any UHD player on the market (Samsung, Phillips, Oppo, Sony).

I would like to hear from calibrators, not people that prefer Normal because blacks look darker or prefer Extended because of better shadow detail. There must be a definitive correct setting, please...there must be!

So here's a question... Just upgraded from my 1080 to a 1080 ti and in my Nvidia settings I cant select rgb full. Limited is there but grayed out and ycb is my only range choice.

What am I missing? Now it's going thru my Denon AV, could there be an option there? Or is there a Pc mode for the projector that I haven't found yet?

Image is Jittery when using 4k 24hz on NVidia

I've had the projector for a few weeks now and I've noticed some imagery (particularly expansive panning shots) that the image is jittery or juddering. It is enough to be distracting from the image. I am using the NVidia Shield with the 4k 24hz setting which was the setting suggested by people on the forum to get the BT 2020 color range. I notice it when I am playing Planet Earth 2 on the NVidia. When I change the setting to 4k 60hz the jittering goes away, but I notice a decrease in color range/quality. My AVR is the Yamaha RX-V679BL 7.2-Channel MusicCast AV Receiver with Bluetooth

Is anyone else experiencing this? Any thoughts/suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

Thanks in advance!
Update: Didn't change any settings, but put in Disc 1 instead of Disc 2 and all of a sudden it's "12 Bit 4:2:2 BT.2020 HDR2"

I don't have a lot to compare it to. This is in my living room, with windows on 3 sides, so I wanted something that gave me the best chance for a decent picture with ambient light. That's why I picked slate 1.2.

I do notice some minor issues with the screen, but only if I'm really looking for them - slight sparkle appearance occasionally, vertical lines every ~6in visible occasionally, some tension issues (this might be user adjustable), etc. But the picture is decent in daylight compared to totally not watchable with other screens. You can see in the image below that it's pretty bright outside (quick pic taken on iphone). The projector is ~18ft from the 120' screen.

Thxs is that a pull down screen? I had 3 Da-lite pull down screens & had to return them because of wrinkles that I couldn't stand so I got a fixed framed Elite,in your case you may have to use a pull down screen. PS Da-lite where a pain to roll back up

My 5040ub is out for delivery. I am going kayaking with the family today. So the projector has to wait until tonight. I am going to try my existing mount first.

I have a Sony x800D which I can set to rgb full, with my epson here I can only set it to ycb limited. Has anyone dealt with this? I'm running thru a Denon s910w and not sure it that's what is holding me up or if there is an option to turn on in the menus to achieve rgb full.. Can they even be selected for this projector?

And now for something completely different! ........

I posted this over on the BenQ X12000 DLP thread, and I thought I would share here since the 5040 is what I used so far as a test bed:

Dave Harper:

On a side note, I've been experimenting with "pseudo HDR", meaning sending a non-HDR projector an HDR signal (using its own settings to go into SDR mode, like the Epson, or using an HDF Linker) and then adjusting settings in the projector to get an amazing image, basically manual tone mapping using the projectors settings, namely gamma of course.

I finally came up with an awesome setting on an Epson 5040UB (I know it's HDR capable, but I put it in SDR mode while it was getting an HDR signal from a Panasonic UB900, confirmed with info details and pictures). The last thing I put in at about 1:30am was Ghost Busters 2016 and the image was spectacular! I also watched The Revenant (great results) and Mad Max earlier and directly compared it to doing the HDR to SDR tone mapping in the UB900 and this manual method looked far better and was easily seen in chapter 3 when they're driving into the giant dust storm! I was able to use the digital cinema mode, which engages the P3 filter, which is an issue for brightness when in HDR mode, and it was more than bright enough, although as you can imagine, settings had to be pushed since it was using SDR mode on an HDR signal.

This could be a good method to explore for 4K non HDR but with WCG support projectors, like this BenQ, an older Sony 4K (VW600ES), the Epson LS10000, etc.

So far I've only messed with it one day yesterday, so I am sure there's still some tweaking to be had, but the results are crazy good so far for what you'd think it would with such weird settings in SDR mode. It messes with your mind and OCD traits to set them this way, but in the end you're like , especially with the unbelievable detail you can see on the low APL and highlights with no clipping! The entire HDR signal fits nicely within the SDR range with a steep curve at the top end, without blowing anything out or looking unnatural from what I saw so far.

I'm going to post this and my settings over in the Epson 5040/6040 owner's thread if anyone's interested in trying it themselves to give feedback and any enhancement suggestions. I may also try this on the RS600 with a Linker, just for schitz and giggles, to compare with true HDR mode and stripping HDR but keeping WCG.

Are there any other reports of anyone doing something like this? I know there's a pseudo HDR thread around somewhere that I read, but I don't recall any real testing or results.

Sorry to maybe be off topic, but I thought it relevant since the BenQ doesn't support HDR, this could be something to play with. It may not be worth the hassle over just tone mapping in your UHD Bluray player, but time and results will tell I guess. So far so good anyway!
I'll post the actual settings on the 5040 next, if anyone wants to give it a whirl on their 5040/6040.

PLEASE DO. Sounds pretty interesting. Am I right in saying that you would just go into the signal menu on the 5040 and fix it to SDR when receiving an HDR signal for your workup here?

OK here are the settings, told in menu pictures mostly. I set the menu item to the specific mode it's in instead of AUTO so you can see what it is supposed to be and to make sure it's in that mode specifically to get the proper results. The most important settings are the gamma, contrast and setting it to SDR mode manually instead of HDR. (This is to simulate using a projector/display that isn't HDR capable, like the amazing LS10000, which I want to try this on and will post a similar post there in that thread):

Settings are, from left to right 0, -14, -24, -26, -27, -28, -26, 16, 32.



Panasonic UB900 showing sending HDR:

This puts the clip point for HDR specular highlights/whites at about 1200 nits. If I could've went higher on contrast I would've probably made that clipping point at about 1000 nits.

You may also want to adjust the color saturation some. That was the last thing I messed with very late last night (or should I say this morning! ) so it may not be perfect, but it certainly made my jaw drop at that setting watching Ghostbusters!

If you have an SDR only display you can use an hdfury Linker to trick your source into sending its full HDR signal and then disable the HDR flag on its output to the display. I hope to try this on an LS10000. If anyone here has one or knows someone with one, please refer them here.

Enjoy and please feel free to tweak as needed and share your results.

And here are my "HarperVision Experience" settings using the HDR signal capability on Bright Cinema Mode in the 5040, based on a great custom gamma that oledurt sent to me, but tweaked slightly for my tastes. Maybe he will share his as well if he hasn't already.

Settings: 0,6,12,16,23,29,32,28,0

There's been many iterations of this gamma in my testing, especially at the top end, so this can change and probably will, especially with your personal tweaks if you can share.

(I'll edit this and update all the menu settings here when I am able to get back to my 5040)

You will be amazed at the level of detail this gamma and settings pulls out of the low and high ranges! I was shocked, especially for such a "budget" projector. This may even be better than using HDR modes due to the brightness and full WCG choices you have to make now on this unit because you can use Digital Cinema with the DCI-P3 filter engaged AND get the brightness of SDR!!! So much so that I may just keep this one and use it as a temp solution until new projectors are announced and released in the fall and winter CES and CEDIA timeframe.

I'm not sure 80 is correct though. I'll try to test later.

Forgive me but this image does not correlate with these number values. Can you please advise? "0" can't be that high on the far right slider as seen in the image. Are the numbers accurate or is the image you posted of the curve accurate?

Oh crap you're right. I told you it's changed a lot in my testing!

I think the picture is the latest iteration and the numbers are from an earlier test, but then I noticed that the top adjustment didn't seem to matter if it was peaked or at 0, but I didn't have time to test that 100% yet. I think it doesn't matter because I like to clip at about 1,000 nits using R Masciola's patterns and I'm sure that last point is past that, so anything above the clipping point is moot. I'll try to test that too later.

Try both!

I'm not a expert but should contrast be at a 100?

In this unconventional and weird experiment....yes! Remember we are displaying an HDR signal using SDR signal parameters. I wish, like the amp in Spinal Tap, I could make it go to 110, haha! Just as a point of reference, the Sony 4Ks usually have their contrast close to 100, and with its Contrast (HDR) slider, it's usually in the 75-95 range, depending on where you want the clip point.

Speaking of high contrast, I was testing out Mad Max UHD last night and I can't bring myself to lower the contrast in bright cinema mode below 65.
Some HDR movies like Batman V. Superman, I'll have it up at 80.
Color saturation is the same story for me with this projector. I usually have it in bright cinema mode with saturation up at 80. Looks wonderful. Then when you hit the default button on the remote on color sat, you can see just how much beautiful color you lose at the 50 mark.

Color saturation and contrast must be way boosted on this PJ with UHD for my particular tastes. If i'm not using custom gamma, i use the +2 option along with those high color and high contrast figures. Ever since doing this along with the new 1.09 update, I am thrilled about the UHD blu rays. I don't even want to buy the standard blu rays any more.

Have you checked those with any test patterns, or is that just personal preference really?

Just personal preferences so far. My eye is becoming better at looking for clipping though.
This is my first high end PJ. I just bought it in January and for 7 years before that I was using an Epson EX70 720p Multimedia PJ, so it's been a YUGE improvement even with standard factory settings to say the least.

Official Epson 5040ub/6040ub owners thread

Has anyone else seen this new FW update for the Panasonic UB900 UHD Bluray player? It supposedly now offers forcing 10 bit output , but more importantly gives a new HDR Brightness Range adjustment (similar to the Sony VW675ES' Contrast (HDR) Slider) to increase the brightness of the entire HDR image. This could be a boon to us 5040/6040 owners that want to use Digital Cinema mode to preserve the rec2020 WCG filter for true DCI-P3 colors! This could allow the image to be bright enough too now! I can't wait to try this out!

WELL ****! I just bought the Philips player 2 months ago. That HDR slider sounds interesting!
