My Owner got a gander at an image in 1080p using the HDR presets we engaged and went nuts....as in "not so happy". And who could blame him as the image was dim, dull, and incredibly Red.
I got a call from him...a text from his Wife, both pleading me to change it back asap.
I rushed over and did so, resetting the PJ on Default, and it was looking so good then he (owner) said please...just leave it like that.
Granted, these Folks are decidedly "Non-Techy", most of their DVDs are SD.
But of coursed they are elated at having a 175" 2.39:1 and a 178" 16:9 image at the level of quality the Epson delivers "out of the box", so it's not like I'm smelling Tar boiling or the Chickens are running around naked.
Now....I will return...upgrade, and give the HDR settings another chance, using both the Wired and Wireless connections. I'll say this....if I can set up the HDR functionality and it does not adversely impact non-NDR content (IMO) then I will do so and leave it and then just settle back and wait for the next Phone call.
(...which BTW, also included the fact that the PJ powered down,and would not restart! I came by and unplugged it and it reset and has had no issues since. We shall see....we shall see.......)
Lastly, upcoming will be a series of Screen Shots in HDR mode if such a thing can be done. For the record, I gotta express to those who might care....given a proper screen surface and governable room conditions, the 5040 can power up 160" to 180" diagonal images with no problem. So all those of you with picayune, tiny 130'ers, or Postage Stamp sized 100"-110"ers, you've got "Zerox" potential going for ya!
