RE: "There's less image enhancement (processing) when the projector is being fed a 4k signal. Which is why you should always send a 4k signal, even when watching 1080p content." (Dependent on source, of course.)
Doesn't this also depend on the "upscaling" ability of your TV or Projector - as well? And - the quality of the 4K content versus 1080P content? At least for my Sony 900F LCD - - a streaming 1080P image often looks better (sharper, more pristine, better colors, brighter) than 4K, 4K/HDR or Dolby Vision content (especially with Amazon Prime).
I understand if you have a 4K UHD disc - - that certainly makes sense to feed your display the most information possible. But how about streaming? Also - - is there any difference in compression with 1080P content versus 4K or 4K/HDR content? Same algorithm? And, by the way, how is the upscaling or pixel shifting to 4K look like on the Xiaomi Mijia proector?
