This answer really helps me out alot with my decision, since to be honest im looking for the best value projector for my needs, and after your answer, as for my personal situation i think i've pretty much decided on the 4010 series over the 5050 as FOR ME it and my situation i find it isn't worth it. Only problem now is, i'm now trying to find good reasons why the 4010 is worth the extra money over the 4000! (Digging as deep as possible to get best value!) Because the only main feature i see upgraded apart from the small 200 lumens and little contrast bump, is the better hdr tone mapping.



Since the hdr tone mapping on the 4000 is probably the same as the 5040, just as the tone mapping for 4010 is same as 5050, do you find that the improved hdr on the 5050 is much better/watchable for movies than the 5040?

Since i heard that the updates with the older models improved their hdr, and also i see that there are alot of hdr settings which those with the older models seem to like and feel it improves the hdr. Is the hdr on the new models still much better and much more of a step up, for movies?



Thank you once again.
You're welcome! Always glad to help a fellow AV enthusiast.

When I had the 5040 I was not impressed with the HDR tone mapping (or lack thereof) that came with it. I have a Panasonic 4k player that was very good at handling increasing the HDR brightness without overexposing the overall picture. With the new 5050 the tone mapping is very similar to the Panasonic method. I believe the new tone mapping on the 5050 has 15 or 16 points to choose from. 16 being the most dim and 1 being the brightest. Where the 5040 failed is that there was only 5 different HDR adjustments to choose from. What does that mean? From my eyes, it seemed that anytime you jumped from one hdr setting to the next on the 5040, there was this massive increase or decrease in brightness. Nothing was subtle about it.

The best comparison I can make is sort of like seasoning your food. With the 5050, you can season ever so slightly until you find just the right taste. With the 5040 it's either way too much seasoning or not enough. There wasn't enough level of control. Not to mention, the way the HDR tone mapping looks picture quality wise is much better than the 5040. I feel like the 5040 just overly increased contrast and didn't truly add brightness which made the picture look very blown out. I hated it. There was no real good balance. The 5050 gives you just that. So in that department, the 5050 far exceeds the 5040.

My opinion and my eyes see a better HDR picture when it comes to movies. I no longer use the tone mapping of the Panasonic because the Epson tone mapping is implemented so well. I just wish games took better advantage with HDR like movies do.

Hope this helps!!! I'm here for any other questions or advice you might have my friend. Take care

The cables are 1 direction only so you may have the wrong end in the source and the wrong end in the display.
Just to clarify active HDMI cables are directional so you have to make sure you have the source end plugged in at the source and display plugged in at your display in this case your projector but not all HDMI cables are directional ie active HDMI cable. If you have a directional / active HDMI cable each end should be clearly marked source and display.

JewDaddy did an excellent job of explaining HDR between the 5050 and the 5040 for movie watching. Honestly one of the best and most thorough explanations I've seen on any forum or any review so great work. I would just add that the sharpness level and the resolution is also better on the 5050. Shadow detail and Spectral highlights are also a much higher quality with the Epson 5050ub. And even more so on the 6050.

The cables are 1 direction only so you may have the wrong end in the source and the wrong end in the display.

Correct - active cables only are directional. I am unaware of a passive fiber hdmi cable, however.

I agree I have not seen a passive fiber optic HDMI cable but just in case there is one LOL I want to make sure I defined what I mean by active and passive. For anybody here who isn't familiar with HDMI cables there are two types. passive cables which can be plugged in to either the source or the display and you should get a picture. active cables also referred to as directional cables require that you plug them into the correctly labeled Source or display.

Audioquest HDMI have always been directional in "suggested use". More for the audio signal than anything. I have that optical cable in preparation for my Chocolate failing. Never took the end caps off, lol, but will keep it around just in case. $59 insurance policy.

Which cable do you run connecting your source (player) to AVR? I assume the fiber runs from the AVR to Epson.
I need to find another short fast one for connecting my OPPO to AVR

Your FIOS box will send a signal to your Epson after 20 minutes of inactivity to shut down. You can go into the settings of your FiOS box and disable all inactivity timers to OFF. If the projector is fed from the receiver, you may have a setting in your receiver's HDMI settings to link it directly to the source so that if the source has zero activity it automatically places your Epson to OFF or standby. Unlink or turn off HDMI link so that the projector doesn't time out after 20 minutes.
Your Epson isn't the issue. It's the FiOS or receiver settings.

Going to check all that as soon as I can get home. Thank you for the suggestions.

Just to note: The Fios box remains on (but I do understand what you are saying.)

The exact same set up has been running with multiple projectors with no such issue. Earlier this morning i connected the HDMI feed back to the Sony I just removed, and an older Epson, and no issues at all.

Again, i appreciate the help you have offered and I will post back as soon as I can check.

I run Amazon’s own HDMI cable 2M between the BR Player and the AVR.

That is absolutely correct and a great diagnosis on your part. Great work. I honestly love this forum oh just there are so many great wonderful AV enthusiast that are so helpful. I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend.

Not likely anytime soon. Putting aside the anamorphic lens settings and the lockable ISF modes and the mount and lamp that ship with it, the only performance difference on paper with the 6050 is the extra contrast. It would be nice to compare the two at some point if we get the time and resources; it's about a 16% difference in rating. But I'm not confident you'll see a tremendous difference on screen, and if you do, it'll likely only be on the very darkest and most challenging content. Even in those conditions, I'd guess it's probably splitting hairs. Not like stepping up from a 4010 to the 5050.

Talking with Epson Technical Support today, the new guy on weekend duty more or less said the same thing. The difference is in the case color, warranty, Chief mount, and a few lockable settings..... Bob, are you willing to post your calibration settings in a table for color mode BD & UHD to compare to others that have calibrated theirs? I have Spectracal Home but only 4 hours on the bulb. Thanks!

Sure, I'll try to get them posted up on our site in the next few days as an extra page on the review. I've got to extract them from the projector and type them up.

Personally, I'd go for the 6040UB, and allocate money elsewhere in my home theater.

Does anyone know if the 8 grayscale steps correlate with specific values (10%-90%)? Just trying to figure out how to calibrate those values using Calman (been a self-oriented user of this pgm for awhile with no formal education with it).

All devices go through a Marantz 7702 and all go out same HDMI output, over a fiber HDMI cable, into HDMI 1 on projector. Have had multiple projectors using exact same setup with no issue.

When watching other sources such as Panny UB820 or NVidia Shield all is good. Once I switch to Fios cable box, projector shuts down at 20 min, as if it was on a timer. 5050UB is days old and no settings changed just yet. I have timed this and it always shuts down at 20 min. Tried changing channels/browse the guide/watch dvr during the 20 minutes and still always the same. Switch to another source and all is fine again.

I see no setting on PJ showing a set timer but if there were then wouldn't that not depend on source? If watching the panny and the movie ends, source feed ends, same thing happens, as it's supposed to , so its shutting down when watching cable as if it were not receiving a signal the whole time.


No light codes/no overheating. The blue light below the power button light will blink just before shutting down, I guess indicating its going into stand by mode. I can turn it back on immediately and if I switch source, all is good. I sat and tested the 20 min time 6 -8 times in a row and it never fails to shut off, multiple times. Any ideas?

Your Epson isn't the issue. It's the FiOS or receiver settings.
No luck so far. I have not found a setting on the Marantz nor the Fios box that prevent this from happening....

Did you try turning off the HDMI Link in the projector and as a safeguard I was also turn it off in the receiver

Makesure CEC (it's called by many different names but is the HDMI control link) is disabled in all the devices. A firmware update may have recently enabled it one of the devices. I remember this problem for somebody a couple years ago with a Marantz and a 5030.

I appreciate all your suggestions and will give them a try. I did update my Panny 820 firmware just 2 days ago and becasue I was in that mood, check the Marantz but no update needed. I downloaded the Epson firmware but have not updated it yet. Want to be sure it's the right one of course.

I will keep you all posted...

I can't remember but changing the HDMI Link in the projector to off should actually solve your problem I think the other ones are not necessary but I turned them all off anyway LOL. I have a Denon but should be the same internal parts as most of the Marantz line.

HDR is the future and as such the 6050 really does trump the 6040 in this aspect. I think you would be surprised by the results that now can be achieved with the latest projectors compared to one’s only just been replaced.

That link was in fact on. I have just turned it off. Watching a movie or 2 with the wife but 21 minutes after I switch over to Fios I will let you all know

Love this Forum. Wish I had more to contribute here but alas, it's not my best subject. If you need PC/Network help then I would feel more useful.
