    Hey @terminal33 Sorry for the delayed response. Most will tell you that projectors just can't produce enough light for solid HDR impact to begin with. The argument would be to run SDR BT2020 to disregard the HDR while keeping the wide color gamut in tact. If you truly want to see amazing HDR in action, I'm afraid you'll need a 1000+ Nit panel to truly enjoy the HDR effect.

    I was always trying to stretch as much light out of my PJ for HDR as possible, but in the end I think SDR BT2020 is the way to go here. I used Natural mode for most everything 4kHDR and High Lamp.

    Hello, I just picked up the Panny 820 and have read so many posts about it that I confused myself. I know you have it as well, along with the 5040. Can you tell me what settings you have on the 820 as well as the Epson? I think I've read both sides, where one will say set the Panny to HDR2020 and another says set it to SDR2020. Right now I'm sending it HDR so I can utilize the HDR Optimzer, combined with HarperVision. Speaking of the HDR Optimizer, it seems I get brighter effects with it Off. Is there a reason for that? Anyway, thanks for your time and hopefully you can help me out.

    @xpl0sive you will probably find your self adjusting the dynamic range slider on the 820 as well.

    Hey Man,

    Was hoping I could pick your brain on the Panasonic UB820, since you have the same projector as me. What I want to know if this is a 'set it and forget it' player. I currently use Harpervision settings, but I'm getting a professional calibration done in 19 days and was considering getting this player before I do.

    I currently have the UB900 and it's good, but the HDR slider function needs to be set for each movie. You can't just set it as a universal setting which is annoying. Is the 820 the same? I only want it for the HDR optimizer.

    Hi,
    I see that you have cinegray 5d. Can you share any thoughts ab it ?
    I have 5040ub, light controlled, dedicated, dark walls and I was planning to buy elite 5d screen.
    Does this make sense to buy such screen for light controlled dedicated room ?
    I found some comments that it improves also contrast / blacks with not impacting whites in such controlled conditions.
    Thanks for sharing.
