You are not considering mounting the pj on the vent itself, up side down? Or next to the vent, on the ceiling? .. Try throwing the image from top, instead of bottom.

Digging into the floor is actually not a bad idea, not sure I want to do anything that permanent for 3-4 more inches of screen lol.
I have also thought about having the vent redirected in some way, but there really is no way to do it.

If I mounted it upside down on the vent I would have the same problem just reversed and the projector doesn't do lens shifting so it has to be centered.

Ok for some reason I am just not getting this remote.

When I have for example my ROKU connected directly to the Xiaomi 4K projector and I Press the menu button with the Three Lines I do not get an HDMI Option. I get DISPLAY, SOUND, and PLAYBACK SETTINGS. When I select DISPLAY, I Get "Picture Profiles" "Aspect Ratio" "Light Mode" and "Color Range" I do not see an HDMI Option to Enable HDMI 2.0

MY ROKU Streaming Stick + is HDMI 2.0 and HDR compliant etc.

What am I missing to enable HDMI 2.0?

OK just found it! On my model I need to select "Playback Settings" And then there is an HDMI Menu. with HDR options and CEC options Happy camper now.

Does the projector come with mounting brackets (or even screw holes )to install on a ceiling ?

I may have to go that route or just put in on the floor (which I REALLY don’t want to do)

There are settings to flip the projector for a ceiling mount. I believe the feet can be removed and a mount added where they went but I am not 100% positive.

long before ust projectors were aimed at home theater enthusiasts they were used in classrooms, boardrooms, retail (signage), etc., and were often ceiling mounted... this ust is no different, it has standard/universal mounting holes on the bottom (no need to remove the projector's feet or the like), a ceiling mount setting in the menu options, and there are many ust wall and/or ceiling mounts available on amazon or elsewhere... but as mentioned above, you're still working with the same prob in terms of fitting the image to the screen in a small space, you're issue is just flipped.

great to hear!

I assumed this was the case. My concern was using the small floor space we have between theater seats & screen to stick the projector, But if I can easily ceiling mount this thing then solves most of my problems

xiaomitoday.com/xiaomi-wemax-9000-ansi-lumens-4k-ultra-short-throw-laser-projector-hits-the-market/
from the link... fwiw these specs are identical to the current 4k:

"The world’s first ultra-short projector with advanced laser display (ALPD) technology also sports a T968 Cortex-A53 4-core 1.8GHz chipset and it supports 3840 x 2160 resolution. The chipset is also paired with a 2GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB eMMC flash storage. Apart from this, the projector operates on MIUI TV OS and supports Android 6.0 and above, which is more than satisfactory for a projector. Its high-precision, efficient, convenient and accurate electronic focus means that no detail is left out while rocking the device."

so the current 4k is described as 5k lumens, the wemax one as 7k lumens, and the new xiaomi 4k as 9k lumens (almost twice as bright as the current 4k), yet i've read that the current 4k appears to be just as bright as the 7k wemax one... so will the new 4k, in the real world, actually look twice as bright as the current 4k? hard to believe, but given its price tag is 75% more than the current 4k i'm guessing that's the hope!

Was it in this forum that someone posted an alternative to the XY Screens on the ALR screen front called 'Snowwhite'? Just reached out to the seller on Alibaba, and he mentioned that while XY Screens are PET Crystal, their Snow White screens are PET Black Grating. Any advice on the difference or perhaps experience on difference?

Is there a review of this by AVS or some other reputable website?

I've seen some youtube videos which look very good with pic quality and small throw.

How will the picture quality of this compare to Epson 5050UB?

Thanks

My brother has the Epson 5050UB and I have the Xiaomi 4k. It depends on your content honestly. The Epson has much better black levels while the Xiaomi has much better colors with an HDR image.
As for lower quality, 720p and below content, the Epson wins. It does a better job at upscaling and DNR.
If you have a video in 4K with HDR then I feel the Xiaomi clearly wins.
Hope that helps.
Thanks,
Ben

Oh wow. That's pretty close considering the xiaomi is $1k less and doesn't require any mounting or running electrical outlet and HDMI to the ceiling.

All content I have in 1080p, some even in 4k local content and Netflix and Amazon video in 4k.

I am in the US and will have to find some retailer settling it with warranty. Where did u get yours? And how would u claim warranty if needed?

Thanks

I got mine from gear best. It only comes with a one year warranty and I am sure it would be a pain in the rear but you would work through them.
It is on sale right now for $1,999.

I ordered the 20th of June and today it finally says "packed" so hopefully that means shipping out shortly. The only benefit of the long wait was they had to price match the $50 price drop since I could have just cancelled otherwise. They say they wouldn't match for a "flash sale" if it had already shipped.

Mine shipped one day after the order so you might be waiting a bit.

HI...just got my projector today and hooked up to a pc with a Titan V gpu using HDMI 2.0. Purchased an HDMI 2.0 cable and wondering if anyone else having issues running at 3820 x2160 @ FULL RGB? Basically i get flickering lines going up and down my screen and i can fix it by going to nvidia control panel > resolution and change the color settings to YCbCr444 but the picture looks a bit blurry and washed out. Anyone else has the same issue and if so how did you fix it? Fiber HDMI cable?

Thanks in advance guys!

Do you have the projector input set to HDMI 2.0? Select the input and then hit the button on the remote with the 3 lines. Its like the last option in there and then HDMI and turn HDMI 2.0 to ON.

Hi,

Yes i made sure to enable HDMI 2.0 on the input in am on from the projector settings. I am able to display 3820 x 2160 @ 60hz fine at 4:4:4 (limited) color settings. Are you connecting your projector to a PC running win10 + nvidia gpu? if so can you check that you are running 3820 x2160 @ 60Hz FULL RGB or 4:4:4 (limited)? If you are able to get FULL RGB, my question to you is which cable are you using? Your help (or anyone else reading this) is greatly appreciated!

Regards,

Rob
