I have a few questions about my projector and my current home cinema setup, so I hope somebody around here can help me out.
I recently bought an Epson TW-7300, which apparently is Europe's version of the 4040. I still have to hook it up, but I'm lost in the woods about HDMI cables and have some questions about HDR.
In the past I purchased an HDMI cable of Monster to connect my TV to my AV Receiver. Never had any problems with it, but they are quite expensive.
Now I'm looking for an HDMI cable to connect my projector to my AV Receiver, it must be at least 40 feet long or longer (appr. 12 meters)
But I've read somewhere that HDMI cables over a long distance loose in picture quality.
So now I'm asking myself:
a) would I buy a normal but yet expensive HDMI cable from a know brand?
b) or should I go for a fiber optic HDMI cable, who are more expensive? If so, is any brand good enough?
Also, I'm confused about the 4K thing.
So my projector is a native Full HD, but can upscale to 4K. So it's not really a native 4K projector, right?
Also, a normal HDMI cable is not capable to project 4K images? yes? no? Or only at shorter distance?
I'm also confused that my projector has HDR. But I don't understand how a non 4K projector has HDR.
I always thought this was a feature on a 4K display (tv/projector)
Also I am confused with HDR10+ who's available on 4K blu-ray movies. Is HDR10+ the same as HDR or what? Can somebody please explain this to me?
And finally, does an HDR signal passes through your AV Receiver? My receiver supports 4K, but I'm not sure how this works with HDR.
Reason about my question is, I only have 1 HDMI out. So maybe I need to look for a splitter or switch.
If this message should be put else where, please feel free to move it.
I'm looking forward to some of your answers.
