So the EZ is telling it that it’s a 4K device. How the whole HDR thing works, I’m not sure. You have to figure this out because from experience I know that HDR passed thru doesn’t work right on 1080P projectors of the older vintage. I think the newer ones that advertise 4K HDR compliance take care of that. AFAIK
, the EZ does not.
Received the EZCOO yesterday and tried it out with my FireTV 4K Stick -> Pioneer VSX-LX503 AVR -> EZCOO -> Epson PLHC 3020 (1080p) Projector.
The EZCOO was set to downscale Out2 which I connected to the PJ. I did not connect anything on Out1.
Happy to report that this configuration worked to show 4K streams from Amazon Prime Video, You Tube and Kodi all as apps on FireTV 4K stick. It even brought out Dolby Atmos for Jack Ryan!!
Incidentally, the Neflix app showed HDR in the titles - not sure if that means 4K UHD HDR. But was not able to get Atmos sound from Netflix.
was that the display looked quite color washed out for some of the 4K content. I played with the Adaptive and Always HDR settings on the stick. It still showed wash out in either case, so left it at Adpative. However, I changed the color mode on the PJ and that showed some improvement.
Now I need to get hold of a NVidia Shield and try out these services on it, especially Netflix...but that's another post after I actually have a shield
For a $30 investment, this little device works for my purpose for now until 4K HDR projectors show price drops!!
But if anyone can suggest how to reduce the color wash out consistently, that would be very helpful for many.
