Can anyone explain the difference between Cinema and Digital Cinema? I read that digital cinema is similar to what a movie theater would project, but not sure exactly what that means. Also, I think Natural looks, well...more natural, but I've read posts recommending the cinema settings due to use of DCI P3. Is there that much of a difference in the color gamut? Is it a greater difference when viewing rec 709 v BT 2020?

I'm not sure either why FI isn't available with 4K. Just seems like something they intentionally left out to make next years model a little more appealing to upgrade to. I had the 5020 and hated that FI wasnt avaiable in 3D. That's the reason I jumped to the 5030. Can't give us everything we want in a projector.



It's not that I prefer the SDR over HDR. I really like how HDR looks on this projector. The HDR looked phenomenal with the new XMEN Apocalypse. But after watching half of it in 4K HDR, I switched the player to 1080p with my settings and it looked just as good. One of the key things I found to make the colors pop and look very very saturated was changing to BT 2020. Yes at first it looks overblown, but after you tweak some settings, it looks amazing. Took me some time but I got it. I assume about 95% of the people on here would hate them, they look great to my eyes. I just wish there was a way to get 4K HDR with FI on this projector. I would pay for them to release an update that would allow for it to be used in 4K.


Are you saying to change to BT 2020 on HDR content only, or on SDR as well? I've been playing with settings and notice more pop in SDR content when changing to BT 2020, but know that the colors are oversaturated. What type of setting changes did you make in order to make the BT 2020 look good?

I thought that it was best to leave the color space on Auto so it matches the source color output. Maybe I'm misinterpreting your post.

I use Kodi as my main player - it doesn't yet output 10-bit video. It looks like MadVR will output 10-bit, would be interested to hear your experience with it. I installed the latest beta of Kodi 17 to take advantage of hardware-accelerated HEVC; seems like I should downgrade to Kodi 16 with DSPlayer and attempt to use MadVR. I think this would also allow me to watch MKVs with a 3D MVC layer in Kodi (which currently I use MPC-HC w/ MadVR to watch). Seems like it would be worth the effort to test, anyway.

Where can I find the nvidia HDR demo?

To those current 5040/6040 owners, a couple of questions.

Just digging through threads trying to decide on a poser 4k projector or wait a couple of years for a cheaper true 4k. Have a 5030 right now and very happy with it, but would love more detail and not see the pixels on my 120" screen.

Unlike most people, on the Epson I just love the FI setting, and keep it cranked to max, as to me it doesn't really have the extreme soap opera effect pop that flat panels do. And in movies and 3D it really makes a difference when smoothing out the fast action that looks really choppy at 24 fps.

I just wanted to confirm that the FI works the same on 1080 sources as the 5030 does, but on uhd/4k sources it only works on 24 fps material. And a 4k movie at 24 fps would have double the resolution as 1080 but also able to obtain the smoothing of the FI effect. Is this correct?

Secondly, if the FI doesn't work with 4k input at 60 fps such as Netflix, then does the 60 fps help smooth out the uhd picture enough at the higher resolution, effectively 'simulating' a FI setting and avoiding the chopiness of 24 fps?

I'm not that concerned about HDR right now, though it would be nice, so the throttled chips of the 5040 doesn't bother me too much. Yet. Would the 5040ube wireless with it's extra 10.x.x setting be worth the extra dough?

Finally, a couple of reviews say that there is virtually no cross talk in 3D. Those of you who have watched 3D have you seen any cross talk? Is it similar to the 5020/30 if you had one?

I guess that's it, thanks for any info!

FWIW, I believe that Digital Cinema is the only set that replicates the DCI P3 color space...the rest are BT2020 at best...

Sort of relative brightness...

I believe that these are from a calibrated unit...

Dynamic [email protected] Bright Cinema [email protected] Natural [email protected] Cinema [email protected] (High Bulb [email protected]) B&W Cinema [email protected] Digital Cinema [email protected]
I run mine on Natural for most things...still playing with the settings. I find Cinema a bit dim.

From Epson,

Available Color Modes
You can set the projector to use these Color Modes, depending on the input source you are using:
2D Images
Color Mode Description
Dynamic Best for projecting in a bright room
Natural Best for projecting in a dark room
Bright Cinema Best for projecting in a room with closed curtains
Cinema Best for projecting color movies in a dark room
B&W Cinema Best for projecting black and white movies in a dark room
Digital Cinema Projects using the same color spectrum as digital movie theaters
3D Images
Color Mode Description
3D Dynamic Best for projecting in a bright room
3D Cinema Best for projecting movies in a dark room

I hope that this helps...

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

Yes, that's helpful, thanks. I did read the detail from Epson and recall seeing those cal numbers somewhere. So if I have a small, dark theater room that probably has 30fl even on ECO and -20 Iris setting I should be good with using digital cinema? Natural certainly is brighter in my room, and with the Cinema modes I still end up closing Iris to -10 or -15.

Can someone with a 5040ub tell me the size of the lens in diameter?

I'm building a pass through window between two walls for the projector to shine through, and need to know how large of an opening I need to make in the wall.

I was considering cutting a 9inch wide by 8inch tall square opening, but need to make sure that's large enough for the lens to easily project to the screeen. Thanks!

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but my understanding is Epson disables F.I. for ANY kind of 4K input signal, ANY, so whether it be coming from streaming or UHD, 24 or 60 fps, it locks F.I. out for 4K input signals.

I've read a lot of reviews and posts on the 5040 and take interest in what people say about its 3D since I like 3D but the conclusion I came to is it's about the same as the 5030 (which is what I own) that it does very good 3D but some 3D will set off some crosstalk. It's nice that Epson provides settings for 3D depth and brightness to be able to minimize ghosting but I usually push these settings pretty high and only adjust them while watching a 3D disc if the crosstalk appears pretty frequently. I love how bright the 5030 is with 3D.

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".
I've read it's best not to get too close to the lower or upper range of the throw limits of a projector because too close can create hotspots and too far the projector looses brightness. I guess it depends on the screen, the projector and the room. In my case, I'm considering an EPV DarkStar .9 or SI Black Diamond 1.4 100" ALR and was told getting too close to the lower range could worsen the cons associated with these screens; namely sparkles, hot spots, etc.. EPV claims the DarkStar does not sparkle, but I'm skeptical so I wanted to make sure.

I am still undecided about which projector to get. I saw the JVC RS400 and the 6040 at a Magnolia in Miami and both looked very good. Decisions decisions!!!

I've read that as well. So far I haven't seen any issues and I'm at the LOWEST range! . I'm fully zoomed in and just have less than an inch of overlap on my screen borders.

That's what I'm deciding between as well.

I've seen both and the JVC definitely had better blacks, however, the eShift to my eye looked better on the Epson, and I'm concerned on game lag on the JVC

I can let you know in about 2 weeks, going from the 6030 to 6040. I saw pixels on my old 120" screen (Elite screens) and it bothered the crap out of me especially on white scenes. Went to a Stewart 123" (cima I believe) and it made a huge difference. No pixels, very good image. So, not sure if it's just your screen.

The oddball feel is because most of us techy, videophile types think it adds an unnatural look to film or movie content. It does. And, as far as it being on all tvs now, so the dynamic, fireball, supernova picture modes. They don't look as the director and video editors intended either. However, these different modes are there because we all have God-given free will and opinions as well! Lol... You should use what you like, and a display that has all these features is bound to have a combination of settings to please most anyone's eyes. With that said, I like FI on stuff like sports. Enjoy your preferences, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

anyone knows what is Epson policy toward stuck & dead pixels? I think this dot is 4 pixels, there is also a smaller one the other side.

This looks suspiciously like a dust blob, albeit a very small one.

this is worth the try! do I have to remove the bulb & maybe use air duster? also is there a way to open the automated lens cover while the projector is off?

Bummer on the FI, watching something move across the screen shaking like a leaf makes me barfy. The heck with the director's vision or a century old film format, silky smooth movement is reality to me. There's an Epson engineer who is obviously old school calling the shots. (or maybe it's money) Boo to both.

I have my 3D cranked pretty hard, not much point in watching it unless things do pop as much as possible. Maybe BenQ will pull a 4k surprise someday.

This gets scary real fast (taking apart and blowing stuff around) involving breaking things, voiding warranty, etc.

Check this thread out, and maybe consider swapping the projector out first.

Roku Ultra issue with Epson 6040UB - help

I proudly upgraded my 6030 to a 6040 this weekend. So far impressed with the picture. However, I only have a Roku Ultra as a UHD source and am having trouble setting the Roku display type to 4K UHD HDR. Apparently my Roku tells me that the display does not report back as an HDR capable display, please consult TV settings to enable Deep COlor. I have all this interconnected via a Yamaha AVR 3050 which features both HDMI 2.0a inputs with HDCP 2.2. Is this a compatibilty issue. I just updated both Roku and Yamaha with the latest firmware updated. Please help!

I'm building a pass through window between two walls for the projector to shine through, and need to know how large of an opening I need to make in the wall.

I was considering cutting a 9inch wide by 8inch tall square opening, but need to make sure that's large enough for the lens to easily project to the screen. Thanks!
The size opening your considering is more than adequate, IF the lens is not placed too far back from the opening. The closer it is, the smaller the opening can be. However circulation is an important fact to consider, and jamming the face of the PJ up too close to a solid surface can be detrimental.

Also, if you are inverting the PJ (...almost certainly so...), then placing the Lens top of center in the opening will give you more leeway for the projected beam to fan downward without the bottom edge of the opening cutting the beam. As far as the sides, 9" wide is a big opening, so I'd say the PJ could be placed a full 4" behind the opening if the Lens is precisely centered.

More on the last point, when I've done "Pass Through Tunnels" and the wall was 1/2" Drywall or a 1/2" Plywood veneer, I simply made sure that the partition wall stayed as thin as possible to avoid the edge being too deep. I was /am always able to place the PJ at most back to the 3.5" depth of the wall Framing. Lastly, throw distance is very relevant to how wide the beam will be coming out of the Lens. (...and therein how far recessed the lens can be...) That might not be an issue with you since the very fact your going to shoot through a wall means the PJ is in the back of the room.

On HDR.........

As someone who was always a fan of HDR in 35 mm Photography, it was always well understood the primary purpose of HDR was improving Detail and Color saturation in darker / dark shots. It was never about using such for general, normal light photography.

Nothing has changed, and it seems that far too much emphasis is placed on HDR being an advantage in every type of content.

Myself, it was / is all about increasing the subtle detail and color/contrast in darker movie content. And that is all. As for the rest of the image improvement, I expect the overall performance envelope of the Projector...as well as the Screen to carry the rest of the weight.

That said, it was the odd, over-saturated Red and marked reduction in brightness in 1080p when BT2020-HDR1 was selected for 4K HDR that concerned me most. Seems counterproductive if the PJ cannot default to 1080p setting when a SUHD-HDR disc is not in play. Today will see the Firmware Upgrade on the Samsung downloaded, as well as a check against any upgrade potential on the 5040ube's Firmware. (...what is the most current version? )

Ok great. Do you know the diameter of the lens on the 5040ub?

The lens opening itself is 4". The lens itself is slightly less.

The lens housing, the light gray outer ring is 6".

I went downstairs and measured it on my 6040UB.

Does that help?

If I recall correctly with the Epson 6010 F.I. wasn't available in 3D but when I upgraded to the 5030 it is available. I wonder if Epson will do the same thing in that it will be available in the 5050. I'm just curious why it isn't available with the 5040.

Based on your comments about preferring 1080p over 4K HDR on the Epson I wonder if you were to try a 4K UHD player like the upcoming Oppo 203 whereby supposedly you can keep 4K and the wide color but use SDR vs. HDR what you'd think of that. I read on the RS400 forum that some prefer SDR over HDR with UHD Blurays and are doing it using an HDFury Integral.
Oddball here too .. to the point that I've configured SVP to work with Jriver so all movies are displayed this way. And the difference with a 120" screen is awesome. I'm awaiting the arrival of a 6040UB, and am wondering how the projector will handle this.

If there is an image at 1080P @ 60Hz, will pixelshift be able to handle this up to it's 4K equivalent? It's something I'll be trying first thing once it arrives ..
