I'm watching the Huntsman Winters War on Blu-ray but can't select 4k enhancement presumably because the source resolution is higher than 1080p. So I thought I would mess with the color space and change to BT 2020 and it looks pretty awesome. Colors are probably more saturated than they should be but still looks good. Is this normal? I thought the only benefit of BT 2020 was with 4k and HDR. Remember I don't have a 4k Blu-ray player.

I'm using Natural but I've read posts about the benefit of Cinema because of the P3 filter, but I still think Natural looks better than Cinema. Am I not combining the various settings appropriately?

My knowledge on this is very limited to be honest. My understanding is that for all blurays the color space is based on rec 709. In any case what I do know for sure is that you want to match the color space to the source. If you have a rec 709 source you want to make sure the Epson is set for 709. The easiest way to handle this is to leave in auto mode.

I too once tried changing the color space to something different and at first I thought it looked better with more pop, but shortly after noticed that it was crushing the dark areas and blowing out light areas. Not good at all, and I reverted.

After testing several modes, my recommendation for movie watching it is the Cinema mode. It does have the P3 filter which darkens things a little bit but in my dark theater room I use Cinema mode with low lamp setting and in fact have to close the iris!! So bright.

My next choice is Bright Cinema with some warming tweaks of the color temperature. I use this if I have any ambient light for watching sports with friends etc.

I don't use any other modes.

Ok, thanks for the tips. I've been switching back and forth and I think I agree with you on Cinema. I also have dark theater and have iris at about -15. Question - do you have super white set to ON? The default was off but setting to ON makes the picture so much better IMO - having off just lightens the picture so much.

If I hear back from Epson I'll be sure to provide an update.

I think Super White setting needs to match your player. I have a PS3 with such a setting. (Going From memory here).

Anyway, whatever setting you use , make sure you calibrate Brightness and Contrast using Disney WoW or similar tool. Most Pixar discs have this.

I use DIGITAL CINEMA almost exclusively and believe that it also has the P3 filter in place. IMHO Bright Cinema is WAY too bright in pretty much all cases for any practical use in my HT including during the day with shades partially open. I run my lamp in ECO and MEDIUM modes only switching to HIGH for 3D content during daylight hours. At night or with the shades fully closed, 3D still pops even in medium mode.

I leave the Iris in AUTO 100% of the time and it works wonderfully. No reason at all to lock it open or closed thereby un-necessarily reducing contrast. Part of the reason I bought this particular projector was to get those high contrast levels that can ONLY be provided through the use of a Dynamic Iris. Granted, I was spoiled by first having the VPL-HW50ES with the DI but this Epson even outperforms the Sony! Very happy with this projector to this point.

No hdr flag for netxflix but, does the ks8500 netflix app support hdr?
I was told it doesn't.

Looking to pick up a player on Black Friday and if the Samsung is now at parity with the Philips then it will increase my chances of getting a good deal.
It' s 12bit, 4:2:2, 24hz signal.
No special setting, everything on auto as before the update.

The Samsung KS8500 player received a software update yesterday.
After the update, the hdr signal is correctly passed to the epson using a cable connection.

3D content and frame interpolation, what setting do you think is better, low, normal??? 3D cinema or dynamic?

Is that with just UHD discs or with Netflix, Amazon Prime, and VUDU as well?

Battlefield 1 is pretty sweet on the 6040ub! Input lag and pixel refresh rate are excellent.

Can't comment on amazon ad vudu app (not available here), but netflix app of the player doesn't support hdr at all (tested on a last generation Samung TV too, just in case)

Thanks, and I didn't mean to disparage Polk Audio. The front speakers are Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II and for the price they have proven to be great entry level speakers. They can be a bit too bright at times, which does not bother me when watching movies or playing games, but when I listen to music I tend to notice more. After reading the rave reviews about the ELAC Debut F5 it is very tempting.

Anyone kind enough to tell there calibrated settings?? As I find the cinema mode very red, especially people's skin tones.

Also..... Would I let my oppo do the upscaling 4Kx2k or best letting the Epson?

Rs-232?

Has anyone else tried to control their 5040 via rs-232? I'm trying to set that up but the projector won't respond to commands and I couldn't find a setting in the menu to enable rs-232 or is it always supposed to be on?

Edit: doing some research it looks like you need to use a null modem db9 cable, not the standard pass-thru rs-232. Just ordered a db9 cable and will confirm.

Is anyone projecting to a 100" 16:9 screen from an 11'-6" to 12'-0" distance with no issues? I am limited to that throw and wanted at least a 100" screen. That range is within the throw ratio of the 6040 according to the specs and at the lower range of the ALR screens I'm looking at (1.5x W.O.S.), but I want to know if there are any real work issues being on the low end of the throw range instead of on the sweet spot.

Thanks.

Ok..this will sound silly..but has anyone had the idea of having 2 epsons 5040ub creating one single image. That way we would be able to double the lumens and create the ultimate bright image for an HDR viewing? I work for Cirque du soleil and we use 4 projector per image , because the amount of brighness we need on those images. I guess it would be tricky to match and align the pixels but if it works I think $6,000 for a 5,000 lumens 4k HDR is not bad. Would this make any other improvements aditional to more light output? anyone has done this before?

The settings from Sound and Vision testing are a good starting place.

http://www.soundandvision.com/conten...xspXjRzYTps.97

I used those for the Customized memory setting, except that I used the Natural picture setting instead of Cinema.

I am still playing with settings...they are almost infinitely variable...

It is difficult to get a bad picture out of this projector.

Atmos Dolby 7.2.4; GE Triton 5; GE XL center; Monitor Audio Gold FX; GE Aon 2; KEF Q50a (top front and rear); SVS PB-12 Plus & SVS NSD-12; Epson 6040UB; Panasonic UB820; TiVo Roamio; Roku Stick+; Nvidia Shield

Should be no problem. I have a 110" 2.35 screen at pretty much max closeness/zoom for 5040, which is like 11'6". No issues at all with picture. At 12' you might be able to go up to 120".

That way we would be able to double the lumens and create the ultimate bright image for an HDR viewing? I work for Cirque du soleil and we use 4 projector per image , because the amount of brighness we need on those images. I guess it would be tricky to match and align the pixels but if it works I think $6,000 for a 5,000 lumens 4k HDR is not bad. Would this make any other improvements aditional to more light output? anyone has done this before?


I like your thinking! I'm not sure if it's practically possible in a home environment to align them perfectly or what that takes but I'm sure it's a rather sophisticated process. In addition, as I understand it you won't be getting anywhere near 5,000 lumens of HDR with two of these projectors. More like 1,500 peak.

Ah okay.
As mentioned in the post above, alignment is going to PITA. And yes no 5000 lumens for HDR.

Thanks.
I'm projecting 100" from 11' on my first screen and 150" from 25' on my second screen and both look excellent.

I find it interesting that you mention a sweet spot as I was always under the impression that the sweet spot was as close to the screen as possible to get the most amount of lumens on the screen. The distance you mentioned is only a foot away from the closest you can be for 100".
