All digital fixed resolution projectors will up or down convert the signal if it isn't the exact native panel resolution. This projector is essentially a "4K" resolution of 3840x2160 (actually 1920x1080 that wobulates so each pixel accounts for four picture elements). Anything above or below that resolution, in your case 1280x720, will be scaled/converted up or down to match that resolution.
I don't think this model can turn off its wobulation to make it a 1920x1080 native machine, but maybe
knows? I thought maybe the pixels looked really large when I was playing some DirecTV on the one I have here, and then appeared smaller when I played some 4K HDR sources. So maybe it can or it does it automatically, idk.
I was thinking of keeping this to use as a cheap 4K to use as an interim projector until after CEDIA when some new higher end models are released. Maybe I'll just return it while I am still in the window or sell it fully ISF Calibrated and tweaked with HarperVision? Tough call. I just got another LK970 here for some HarperVision treatment and damn that's nice, so it's hard to downgrade, so to speak.

I previously had the Panasonic PT-AE8000U. The projector sat on top of a shelf, close to the ceiling.
The top of my screen (mounted on the opposite wall) was UNDER the height of the lens.
The projector was set up in "front mode". With the lens shift I lowered the picture so it fit nicely on my screen.
Now I received my UHD51A and installed it the same way.
I also used "front mode".
However, the manual lens shift does not allow me to lower the picture to anything which is below the height of the lens.
It is projecting up the ceiling now...
I do not want to mount the projector on the ceiling, I want it to sit on my shelf.
Is there any way I can do this?
Or is this projector really not able to project any picture below the height of the lens?
Any help is appreciated... thanks!
It has a + percentage of lens shift, not a +/- percentage, so it will only go up (when table mounted). You need to flip the projector upside down, as you would on a ceiling mount, when projecting from above the screen.

i know i will miss the brightness, but this color .. even on -18 is unbeatable.
Can someone post a calibration details for this projector ?
Also i noticed that 3d does not have digital zoom anymore ;-( It means I will have to move 8-9 inches my mount to the front to not go beyond the borders of the screen.
Benq had better zoom options. This lens shift without keystone correction is something i don't like ;-(
Do not EVER use keystone in a home theater environment, especially with a 4K model cuz if so, you may as well save your money and just use a good 1080p model that has the proper lens shift as to avoid the horrendous effects of digital keystoning!!!

If you have about 40% more coin available than the UHZ65, then I'd highly suggest you check into the BenQ LK970.
