Hello Simple HT, I don't have any pending payment and the money was taken from my account over a month ago now. (11.11 Sales).

I don't know if during those sales they accepted more orders than they could produce projectors or if it is a logistic glitch which is now going forever...

JmGO will not sell the Chinese versions outside of China. JmGO management will not allow it.

I now have to find a trustworthy "parcel forwarding" company which can supply me with a domestic Chinese address.

I do have a trustworthy company which usually helps me in forwarding outside china , they are really good. I have dealt with them about 5 times before , never disappointed. When they receive the shipment, it will be at your door step in 7-15 days. They use DHL , Fedex , Aramex. Additionally, they can adjust the price to avoid most of the custom charges.

Just an idea or two:
1. You can try Alibaba, but the price seems high.
2. If you planning to order the UST screen from China, the folks at the screen company might be able to help you out as well. I know the folks at XY Screens was willing to ship a XGIMI Lune 4k to me. Their quoted price is about $300-$400 more than JD or TMall price. Sill much cheaper than buying from Ebay. They seem to be trustworthy.



I was able to get my Lune 4k from Joy Buy before it went out of stock again. It is currently in transit.

Hi guys, I've tried a Taobao agent (BudyBuy), hoping they are reliable. I've already given their address to JMGO for the delivery to go.

As for XY Screens, I can confirm they are very helpful, I've just ordered a screen from them.

I bought my U1 through tmall using superbuy. Very easy, quick shipping. They even open the package, take photos, and remove the batteries that can not be shipped. I also ordered my 120” screen from xyscreens. Quick service and shipping.

Just as a general review, my new setup has exceeded my expectations. Woodworking is one of my hobbies and I’ve even built a custom entertainment center to get the projector at an acceptable height. Everything looks great even though it’s installed in my living area and not in a dedicated theatre room. I can’t stop watching TV.

Hi Jdiggy, my Projector is on its way.

I did buy a 100'' screen from XYScreens, but can you tell me if it comes with fixations to hang it on the wall.

Thanks

You guys might want to rethink the pricing on the international S3 that's way too high now that LG and possibly Optoma has released comparable or better UST projectors for WAY cheaper! LG model is dual color laser for 3K!

But LG isnt a 3D projector right? At least there is no mention of that.

At last, I have received my U1, will try to test it in the coming days, but may be a bit challenging with my XY Screen as it is set up for my Xiaomi UST.

Not sure that the bottom of the picture will be at the same height.

Not 100% because all of the specifications have not been released yet but the capability is there for 3D because of the DLP chip. But at the end of the day who's going to pay $1,500 EXTRA just for 3D?! 🤔 Plus you get better support from LG instead of JM Go I'm sure.

OK, so first impressions :

- bulkier than the Xiaomi
- slightly more noisy
- aiming higher than the Xiaomi, so can not stretch it to the full 100'' on my fix screen, but I'm planning to use it somewhere else where I will be able to fix the screen accordingly.
- only 2 HDMI plugs versus 3 for the Xiaomi.
- The remote has more option, even one for 3D

Now, I haven't found anywhere to switch Chinese to English or even to launch the latest update. This will be very challenging.

Good evening everybody. I'm new in this thread
I'm interested in buying this jmgo U1 4k projector. But my friend was telling me that this projector won't display play content from 4k blu-ray disc (in this case he's using Sony ubp X700) because of HDCP 2.2 issues. Is that true? Could someone gives some advice on this please? Cus no point for me of getting this projector even when I have a 4k uhd player
Thank you guys.

The U1 is the Chinese version, the S3 is the international version which is sold outside of China. I'm not 100% sure on HDCP 2.2 but the Lune 4K doesn't support it, so I wouldn't be surprised if this one didn't either. Proceed with caution.

On another note, both LG and Optoma have announced their 4K UST laser projectors for the US market and are definitely cheaper and less worry (support, English menus, HDCP 2.2, etc) if you can wait I would recommend one of those options.

Thank you very much @Troy LaMont
I just watched the video clips from YouTube showing the one you mentioned.
I guess LG and Optoma would be a better choice then.

I used to own a 1080p Lune and now I am using a 4K Lune, based on my own testing and experience (as reported in the 4K Lune thread),4K Lune supports HDCP2.2 (UHD bluray discs and 4K YouTube videos are played in 4K resultion). Cheers

YouTube doesn't need HDCP FYI. Do you have an Xbox One? Maybe post a screen shot showing where it says the display is HDCP compliant. If not that, then a screen shot from a PC connected would also show if the display is HDCP compliant.

Because official word from Lune says otherwise.

Thanks.

Hi Troy, unfortunately I don't have an Xbox One or PC. I can provide a screen shot of my Sony x800 bluray player playing an official 4K UHD Blu-ray and the info confirms 4K. Few months ago, using the same disc and Blu-ray player with the 1080p Lune, it is downscaled to 1080p (but note that recently @adrift shows that
his 1080p Lune can support HDCP2.2 contents).

Also with my 1080p Lune, it could only accept YouTube videos up to 1440p but not 4K.

Hope this helps. Cheers

Greetings arekuczer.

1. This issue has been discussed at length in the thread. There is sufficient info available for you to make a decision if you care to read through the thread.

2. If you're interested in the Lune4K, you can take schumy's word on 4K UHD player support.


Best regards,

@arekuczer ,

If it were me and my money, I wouldn't take the chance and you're not even guaranteed English menus without jumping through hoops. Your call.

Hi

Talking about English menus, anyone knows if there is a way to exactly do that?

On my Xiaomi, we could side load a apk which would translate or add the English version for some parts.

Hello guys,

OK, I may have missed something in the settings as audio is concerned.

I've hooked up the projector to my Nvidia Shield TV. The problem I'm facing is that when playing movies/series from NetFlix in 5.1 mode the sound comes out distorted.

I know it doesn't come from the Shield TV, because when plugged to my Xiaomi Mi Projector, the sound is OK.


Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello, recently after switching off my projector the led turns from white to red to indicate that the projector has been switched off and then after a few seconds, the led turns blue and the projector starts beeping for a few seconds but doesn't switch on.

Anyone knows what it means?

Thanks

The blue light indicates the projector has paired with a Bluetooth device.

Does anyone know how to play 3D content on the U1? The 3D button on the remote doesn't do anything when I press it.
