Thanks everyone for your help! I can finally get 4k through my xfinity XG1v4 box, but I had to use HDMI 2 instead of HDMI 1 due to handshaking. I also had to buy a device to set the EDID. Which of these two is the better option?

3840x2160, 29.97 Hz, 8 bit 4:4:4 BT.2020 SDR
3840x2160, 59.94 Hz, 8 bit 4:2:0 BT.709 SDR

Also, why are neither of these HDR when I was playing 4k through Amazon Prime? The video said "Ultra HD" at the bottom. Is it because I had to use HDMI 2 instead of HDMI 1?

This is what I bought to set the EDID to fix handshaking:

I answered my own question.  I was able to get both HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 to show 3840x2160, 59.94 Hz, 8 bit 4:2:0, BT.2020 HDR.  I thought HDMI 2 was only version 1.4 and incapable of HDR, but why does the info show that it's HDR?

UPDATE 1:

I used Wireshark to look at what the android iProjection app was doing.

The projector does have a web based remote control.

The URL is
http :// your projector IP /mobile/index.html?EPSON=Projector
Username: EPSONMOBILE
leave password empty

Or, curl
Code:
curl -u "EPSONMOBILE:" http :// your projector IP /mobile/index.html?EPSON=Projector
It's literally what the android iProjection app shows when you click [Remote].

I seems to be another (possibly different?) interface at /webremote/index.html but I have not discovered a working username / password for that endpoint.

I have too few posts to post screenshots.

the "wireless" part of the Wireless UBe is HDMI, not internet. It's so you can shoot HDMI signal across the room to your projector from your players. As far as I'm aware the projector does not connect to the internet.

I have a Oppo 103d and love it. I also have a Oppo 203 that I bought when they did the reserve email purchase. Now saying that I never use the 203. I bought it to pair with my Epson 5040 for 4K playback. But because the 5040 is not native 4K and it’s limitations I stopped trying to work with satisfaction. So I still watch all Blu-ray’s in my 103d with the darbee enabled. I also have the 4K in the Epson off and image enhancement to 4. This to me provides a very sharp picture to me without all the fiddling around. I find having the 4K shift on makes the image a little less sharp on my spandex screen.

Seeing my theater is almost complete I will be going back to fiddling around with all formats on both players and give it more time.

Below is with 4K shift on.



Below is with if off, native 1080p Blu-ray with darbee.

I need to give this a try. This looks significantly improved.

Games look really, really good on the Epson! :)
They sure do! I used to be using 4k mode on my PS4 Pro (HDR off) but have lately gone to 1080p with HDR and wow, it's looking incredible. Doom Eternal with HDR is EPIC. Fired up The Last of Us 2 last night and it looks incredible. Makes gaming so much better. Wish I had bigger than 100" now!

Hmm..with the darbee & 1080p being brought up again, maybe I'll try put mine into this chain for the PS4. Then I can do 1080p/HDR with darbee closing the sharpness gap on 4k. Will see how that goes!

They do standalone processor but also partnered with other manufacturers like Oppo and did 2 special edition Blu-ray players with it built in.
Well heck, I'd love to join the darbeevision train - but after going the website I see that the only 1 model they sell is only HDCP1.4 and I had to buy a new AVR because it was only HDCP2.0 :-(

After working on HDR for few months I gave up and doing 1080p rec 709 now. Was never quite happy with the settings i had for 1080 either. Just tried default natural settings last night for 1080 and it looked great! I set my shield to rgb rec 709 too

I have some fantastic settings for Digital Cinema mode that using the Panny UB820 doing HDR-SDR conversion. With they dynamic slider pushed up you get the brightness you need and the color filter looks phenominal.
I have the Shield too and unfortunately not finding I can replicate without the Panny doing it's thing. Keeping with Harpervision at the moment and looks great. To my eyes much better than Rec 709 1080p.

It's basically settings that were done which is sending the Epson a full HDR signal and then setting the dynamic range to SDR.
I use the Harper vision settings with a few tweaks that were done by Sbuger and they are fantastic. Really vibrant and colourful.
This works great on 4k discs or streaming.

Bt2020 hdr

I am unable to get BT2020 HDR even after connecting HDfury Linker between XBOX>Receiver>HD Fury linker to 5040UB. The projector info still says BT709 .

Could someone suggest how I can get BT2020, is there a projector, xbox or HDfury linker settings I need to optimize?

For me, I've noticed that sometimes I get BT709 and sometimes BT2020. It seems to me that it's the content that determines which one it is. Is that other people's experience as well?

Also, this might be helpful to you guys. This EZCOO switch allows you to set EDID. I set it to [email protected] 4:2:0 and it fixed my handshaking issues with the Xfinity X1 XG1V4 DVR. I'm getting HDR and it works with my fiber optic HDMI as well.

UPDATE:

So I actually do find that using the linker to get HDR with the Xbox One X to be better than without the linker. After playing around with some settings, which is kind of a PINA. I don't play many games on Xbox, mainly PUBG and when I do it's mainly on my monitor.

For PUBG, at the title screen I couldn't see the clouds in the background with the settings I did with the calibration disc. Once I changed it to Auto (HDR 2) and Epson super white on, I could make out all the detail.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider, this game is fine with the settings I did with the calibration disc. Auto bright (HDR 1) and Epson super white off.

Forza 7, same settings as Tomb Raider.

Insects, this works with the same settings but I see more detail with Epson super white on.

I tried each game and Insects with and without the linker and I prefer the linker as when setting up the projector right, I can see more details.
