Ok I did the firmware and all good!
Ver: c03. Process was pretty straightforward, just follow the instructions. Had a scary moment though when I mistakenly plugged into HDMI 2 port instead of HDMI 1 and the pj couldn’t find the source after the update! I didn’t realize also, if there’s no source, there’s no image settings available in the menu! So I though that I was screwed until I found my glasses and seen I was in the wrong port - doh!
So to confirm yes, 1080p, 120 hz with 8ms input lag, and hdr are all running at the same time! Using the image settings in the review mentioned a few posts above and everything is looking pretty amazing running through my pc. SDR is amazing, and HDR in the only game I tried; Battlefield5, is just incredible. I haven’t been able to try it much after the update - somehow now that I have this projector my girlfriend has turned into a gamer.. It’s cool and all but now she’s hogging the thing! But the little I tried was super smooth and responsive. Before at 120hz without enhanced gaming, it felt like your feet were stuck in mud when you were changing directions when running and you could feel the delay when shooting. Now it’s nice and crisp!
One weird thing that’s happening for the last week or so (nothing to do with the new firmware). The projector used to switch to hdr mode automatically when starting battlefield, but now it’s not going into hdr mode? I have to switch the game to hdr-off, exit the game, restart it and then switch back to hdr mode in the game for the projector to go into Hdr mode properly.. Is there a way to force the projector into hdr mode when in the game? I tried to re-sync while in the game, but it wouldn’t kick in? Is there another way?
