UHD65 Firmware update worth it for wait time?
I’ve had the UHD65 since March 2018 and it was shipped with the C08 firmware. I’ve been following this owner’s thread for sometime over the last two years and find it helpful and I always hated the fact we have to ship this thing in to update the firmware when every other modern day HT gear I own can be updated via USB or network.
Anyone that has done this process that has had the C08 firmware and went to C13 or I know now the latest I believe is C15 really notice a difference and I am curious in what areas as Optoma doesn’t really list any changes to revisions.
I had the projector professionally calibrated two years ago shortly after I got it and the picture has been great but I know with certain 4K content mostly with streaming that certain sky scenes and not so much with 4K disc that I will see banding and have people really seen this clean up with the firmware updates? The other issue I have been having is sporadic signal drops lately even with a Monoprice Slimrun AV 30 ft fiber optic cable which comes backs after a few secs. I am not sure if that is the Projector or the Yamaha RX-A3060 acting up. I just installed a HDMI over CAT6 extender to replace the fiber optic cable this weekend to see if that works better with the AVR and Projector since the AVR does all my switching and direct pass through and maybe the AVR wasn’t providing enough power on the HDMI port alone for the fiber optic cable even around 30ft to be 100% solid but that wasn’t always the case until the last 6 months.
