Hi, I'm looking for a little advice please from any resident 5040 experts...
I currently have a epson 5030, Yamaha rx3050, darby dvp5000, and Samsung blu-ray player (non 4k model). I'm considering purchasing the 5040, and a new 4k bluray player, and I'm wondering if anyone sees any potential setup issues or headaches? I dont think the Darby will work in a 4k chain, so I'm fine to get rid of it. The Yamaha 3050 looks like it'll do 4k with HDR, so I think I'm good there. I also understand that I'll need to purchase a new 4k player, so I'll probably look at Sony/Samsung/Panasonic for that.
Generally, I like "set it and forget it" type of settings. On my current 5030, I use cinema mode, and so I'm guessing I'll probably do the same on the 5040. My concern is HDR (I've browsed this thread and it looks like this has caused headaches for many). Is there an HRD setting that I could just leave set to "auto" and consistently be able to get a nice hdr/4k/or upsampled 1080p image, without the image being to dim?
I have full light control, dont play video games, sources are bluray / cable / streaming via roku, and I'd also like to still be able to do 3d if possible, since we have 4 sets of glasses and still enjoy the experience.
Thanks in advance for any help I can get. (I can see from this thread that some of you guys have expert level knowledge when it comes to this projector). Lastly, I'm not really in a rush, and if waiting for the new 5050 is a better move, please let me know.
