Here are some of my experiences with the 5040 coupled with a Philips UHD player after 100 hours.
No Netflix 4K or HDR
HDR shows no improvement, in fact quite the opposite
Fan now stuck on high
Could not get FI working
Quite disappointing. This is my first auto iris projector. It never really worked well as brightness would vary on same scene. The servo motor controlling the iris sounded like an old SCSI HDD reindexing. So loud you could easily hear it across the room.
If my unit is an isolated case, I will consider having it replaced. If others have similar issues, I will try to get a refund or sell it.
Are auto irises fundamentally unreliable over time?
