Sounds like you just need a better cable but make sure your sound bar can pass an HDCP 2.2 signal.
The drop distance for the projector depends on the size of your screen. Turn to page 12 in your user guide and reference the chart. You're looking for the vertical offset corresponding to your screen size. Keep in mind the vertical offset is relayed in mm and is the distance the center of your lens needs to be above the top edge of your screen. For example: if you have a 120" screen your vertical offset would be 149mm.
I also had a chance to do a small side by side test of the benq 2550 and the epson 3700, the epson was good but the benq 2550 still has a big advantage.
A couple more observations, the source change or detect is slow and I am not sure if I can live with it or there is any solution.
i understand what you are saying that it takes a while for the benq to process and go through some kind of detection process, but it really takes away from a fluid experience, since the source devices like the atv4k or ps4 pro etc have enough power and are fast.
I will contact benq and see if they can provide a solution. I cannot believe that people are not complaining about this slow response for the projector to detect. I wonder if i turn the match frame rate off in atv4k, if that will solve the issue.
I also noticed last night, that playing planet earth II on netflix, the benq sounded like it was going through a lot of processing and then when it displayed there was a line in the middle, on one half was the 4k image and the other side was the non 4k image. Felt like somehow the projector after trying to process everything failed to display 4k. This worried me as I am not sure is caused by a hardware or a software failure. My version number is 1.0.1. How do i test 3d? I don't have glasses except for vizio tv 3d passive glasses, will these glasses work? I won't be watching a lot of 3d movies, but still want to make sure that my unit doesn't have any issues like the ones being reported.
I will give that sewell 4k HDMI a try.
Setting the HDR to auto, i noticed that my 1080p movies don't get the HDR applied and look a little washed out, vs setting it to HDR make a 1080p content really pop.
The atv4k home screen looks still washed out.
