Hi Joe, thank you for your response. I now have a pioneer lx 59. Still none the wiser..Your VPL-WV500es is HDCP 1.4 compliant - so fine for all HD sources plus some 4K Sources - other 4K Sources will require HDCP 2.2.
HDFury have a few options for HDCP2.2 to 1.4 conversion - the Linker or Integral being your least cost options.
Which AVR do you have and which Source devices are you working with?
Thanks Joe. Ins't there anything that's not so crazy expensive?Your projector is HDCP1.4 compliant - if it is the only display connected to the AVR your Source devices will see the EDID (capabilities) info from the projector and adjust their output to suit the Projector (1080p) and the projector will up convert to fill its ‘4K’ pixels.
If you want to send 4K to the projector you will have to install a device such as the HDFury Vertex2 which can send audio to the AVR and allow you to ‘fudge’ HDCP to send 4K to the projector - the projector has an odd combination of supported formats on its HDMI Input so you may still hit some limitations with some source devices unless you were willing to invest in a far more costly video processor from the likes of Lumagen.

Many Thanks Joe. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out and stop me pulling even more hair out.If I read your plans correctly you are assembling a system witch includes a ‘legacy’ decent quality Pioneer AVR plus Sony Projector, neither of which are fully compliant/compatible with the latest 4K UHD Source devices.
You have a couple of options either A. stick with connecting the source devices via the AVR and outputting 1080p + immersive audio and allow the projector to up-convert the video signal or B. add the HDFury Vertex2 and connect the Sources to the HDFury then output up to 4K video to the Projector plus HD/Immersive audio to the AVR.
