Thanks for posting Vincent's review of the Fengmi I hadn't send that yet though it's almost identical to his Xiaomi Mijia 4k review. His screen was not flat and had obvious tension issues/setup errors during installation. Don't know if it's enough to affect the geometry, but you'd be surprised.
Hey Casey_Bryson, I wrote you a message over on another thread but it turns out it needs approval before it gets posted, but in case it doesn't I'd like to re-ask the question here.
My Fengmi 4K, when HDR is enabled in a movie that supports HDR (ie: Netflix's American Son and Haunting of Hill house), the screen gets incredibly dark (blacks are crushed) and the colors become very dull.
I've only noticed this when there is HDR content. Ive already disabled dynamic colors. But I left dynamic Contrast ON.
I am using an NVIDIA shield pro 2019. I've also tested this with my Amazon firestick 4K and it does the same thing with HDR content. It wasn't until I figured when I went into the SHIELD's display settings and turned OFF HDR10 Ready, then HDR content gets disabled and those movies become much brighter and more vivid. Also plugging these android boxes into HDMI3/ARC disables HDR since apparently that port does support HDR or 4K. Who knew...
I've read on AVForums that others were having this same issue where HDR content forces the fengmi 4k projector to darken and dull.
I've banged my head for many days trying to get HDR to properly work and I've since gave up and completely turned off HDR in my nvidia shield. I wish I could enable it because people say HDR should be bright and vivid.
Do you mind posting your settings?
Also, I've followed gregory (?) on PHC and used his settings for the fengmi 4K projector. I think his settings are a tad too dark. And this is quickly noticeable when I adjust the RGB values. Is this even supposed to happen? Also, the reds are too red so I've turned that down to about 940 instead of 988.
And lastly, have you found a way to turn off your fengmi 4k projector using a remote controller other than the one that came with the projector? I am able to turn on the projector and my nvidia shield using the shield's remote, but I cannot turn OFF the projector with the nvidia shield's remote.
Your help is greatly appreciated. The fengmi 4k and the a300 doesn't get much love or attention on these forums. I'd' love to get some input from another enthusiast.
