I have a question about HDR. I use my projector as a computerscreen with windows 10. But I dont know how to get HDR to work. I watched Escape from New York yesterday with HDR10. But the picture quality didn't look so good. I got the best picture quality when I switched to HDR in windows 10 and SDR on the Benq. When I just used HDR on the Benq and did not activate HDR in windows 10 the picture was terrible, kinda hazy.
And the last on HDR ON windows and HDR ON Benq the picture became brown and colorless. What am I doing Wrong?

Have had this projector for 4 months now, and am finding it somewhat frustrating with 4K viewing, can anyone advise?

So basically, I've left it with default settings and 'normal' lamp brightness, but out of the few 4K discs I've sampled (standard blu rays look fantastic, btw) I seem to be getting mixed results with image quality. Blade Runner sees massive spikes in grain and what could be called noise in certain shots, and I popped in Labyrinth last week and was greeted with massive, overly processed looking grain on certain shots. I've figured out that it's the sharpening that seems to be causing the worst of this - I've turned sharpness and the pixel enhancer down to zero which seems to fix it for Blade Runner, but Labyrinth still had what I felt was excessive grain pop going on (and no, I'm not a grainphobe, but it just didn't look right to me).


So, basically, is it the tone mapping causing these issues?

I'm also getting really bad issues with grain or image noise. I have sharpness set to 0. I also have the new 1.0.3 firmware.

Is there a setting I should turn off? Anyone else having this issue?

UHD Bluray drive

Any PC users on here use a UHD Bluray drive? I am looking to purchase one, but the only model I can find is the Pioneer BDR-211EBK which costs about £120! Anyone know of any other options?

Hi,



Just got mine W1700 (European) back from firmware update 1.0.3 -> 9.0.6 (yes 9.0.6) anyone else here with this firmware ?

The W1700 now supports HLG (and HDR10)
3D menu now has manual control, so now I can get 3D to work from my Minix U9-H.

But one thing that is annoying is it now takes very very long time If I change video from SDR to HDR, or even change resolution. The projector will blank the screen for many seconds before the picture shows up again.



Best Regards

Same here.. It takes so long that the windows setting confirmation box times out before I've had chance to confirm the change. Anyone know how to make the confirmation box stay on for longer?

I had/have the same problem on my Minix U9-H, but I use my remote, at press left and Enter, to accept. But on Windows, you might be able to use keyboard and the tabulator key ?

Im waiting on a reply from BenQ support, about this behaviour. I also asked for a FW release note, on what has been fixed since 1.0.3.

If you manually set the SDR or HDR10 i have notice that it works better when changing resolutions. It seems to be the Auto mode that takes forever to detect if the HDMI content is SDR or HDR.

Hi!
My w1700 has started to make a noise at startup. It sounds like something is grinding against something else. This only happens for a few seconds at startup and never during a movie. Should I be worried?

Regards
Chris

Raise a support case on their website and if still under warranty, they pick it up from your house, update and post it back. Thats what they did for me.

I have just bought this projector and it has the 1.0.3 version. I cannot activate 3d with my nvidia shield. i tried videos in "SBS" and "OU" and it dows not recognize the 3d.

1 - What player do you use with your Minix U9-H, i'm using kodi. it worked ok with my samsung tv (3D)

2 - How can i ask to do a firmware update.

I did a support ticket with BENQ asking if I could have a firmware update (I'm on 1.0.3). They have replied asking what problems I am having. Well technically I am not. What problems could I be having with 1.0.3 to justify them collecting it? Or is there something else I should respond with to get them to agree?
