How do I set up the projector to automatically detect and display a 4K HDR signal?

    Connect your image source to the projector's HDMI1 port. In the Signal menu, select Advanced and set the Color Space and Dynamic Range settings to Auto.

    The projector will automatically detect and display compatible signals only. If you don't see an image, check the projector's Info menu to make sure you are sending a compatible 4K HDR signal to the projector. If the Color Format section of the Info menu does not display 4K BT.2020 and HDR, the signal is not compatible. See the tables below for a list of signals compatible with your projector.
