Question Epson tw 9400 connection with ps5

Hello everyone,

I have an Epson TW 9400 and cannot set it to the highest resolution on PlayStation 5.

Either I have 2160p without HDR, or if I have HDR on it automatically downgrades the image to 1080p. The devices are connected through the Wireless Connection from Epson, since the distance between the projector and PlayStation would require an HDMI cable of 10m.

Why is it not possible to get the highest resolution through the Wireless Connection? Furthermore, if I buy a 10m HDMI cable and I connect both devices in this way, will it work better than with the Wireless Connection? Any cable trademark in particular that you would recommend? The seller told me that HDMI cables this long are not keeping the 4K signal.

Thank you in advance for your tips and support! After spending a lot of time and some money, the fact that I’m not playing/watching series on highest definition really drives me crazy!

wireless connection wont work for you for highest bandwidth..

i have a 10m passive hdmi that passes full bandwidth 18gbps. its available to me locally though, unlikely to you. you will likely need a fibre at 10m to do full bandwidth. eg ruipro.... but it is not cheap.

if you want and have a conducive retailer you can try borrowing a 10m passive cable to see if works....lot cheaper ... but is likely a hit and miss experience. ie either works or doesnt. we have cable tests you can run these days eg with appleTV 4k, xboxonex & panasonic players. not sure if the ps5 has a cable test facility.

the epson wont support hdmi 2.1 clearly for ps5 but you will still enjoy just about everything with it.

Thanks for the constructive feedback. That means the only way to get the maximum of the projector and PS5 is with a cable connection.

In my case above described, does it make a difference if I buy a cable that supports HDMI 2.1 or one that supports HDMI 2.0b? I find it hard to get a cable 10m long that supports HDMI 2.1, even from ruipro as suggested...
Honestly of course money is important but since already spent some on the projector and PS5, I am determined to get smth that works 100%.

Thanks for your help!

yep 👍

nope... as projector doesnt support hdmi 2.1

note the cable spec is "ultra high speed" to support hdmi 2.1 chips sets

with ultra high speed cables the only certified ones are avaible in quite short lengths 3-5m at most. ruipro wont have their certified cables on market till 2021 jan - feb if i remember... they will be certified to work. certification is mandatory on ultra high speed cables.

longer than that... will have to buy something like ruipro gen 3. they did have some issues with that
(as all cable makers) and gear out there and compatibility ... as its still shifting sands..companies are still trying to get their hdmi 2.1 chip sets sorted out...so till they do its hard for cable companies to match to suit... if buy from a local retailer who sells ruipro or amazon. ruipro has a lifetime warranty so if not doing what they say they will swap over... which is good ... but wont help if you want it hard run through walls or through ceiling and such....

I am having the very same problem with ps5 and epson tw7300 but wired via hdmi. Nvidia shield passes 4k hdr over the same hdmi cable no problems. Any thoughts to solve this problem would be great. Ps5 gives the message that the display only supports hdr in 1080p as the op has stated and again my htpc and nvidia shield pro passes 4k hdr to this device with no issues.

There is a cable test facility on the panasonics? Where do I find that?

Any thoughts to solve this problem’ - replace your HDMI cable, how long is the cable you are using?

As soon as select 4k50/60 as option in video setup, it will swing into cable test. Then ask for confirmation can see image, If get no image by default will drop back to 4k24

Ahh, right. Yes. I though there was a specific test that I had missed. Not that it matters as all my signals go through fine.
