I had posted a few days up as guest but wanted to reiterate more so I created an account here.
More info on my current setup, which has allowed me to use my DreamScreen with 4K televisions.
TV: LG OLED 4K 55" (Flat Model) AV Receiver: Denon AVR-S910W
I have the Denon AVR-S910W AV Receiver. It outputs to both zones in 4K.
Zone 1 manages all my other video signals via HDMI. (All inputs have 4K passthrough so nothing gets downscaled ever)
Zone 2 just duplicates anything Zone 1 is currently set to. This is where I have the DreamScreen ported through (It downscales the signal down to 1080p but does not affect the output of Zone 2)
TV itself should have game mode on as it decreases the input lag enough to match with the sync of Zone 2.
So far I am using my MacBook Pro to output to the TV at 4k while duplicating the signal via Zone 2 directly to the DreamScreen, which is not connected to any other display.
I am using a DENON x4200w, which I believe is similar to yours. How did you get this to work? What settings must I set? When I connect the DS to my HDMI Out 3 (Zone 2), it just stays turned off, so I am looking for some setting to duplicate the output to this HDMI OUT 3? (HDMI OUT 2 is connected to my projector).
Sony KD-65X8505C (with DreamScreen Extreme), Optoma HD131X Beamer, Samsung PS50C7700, Samsung LE40C679, Denon AVR-X4200W, Teufel Theater 6 THX ULTRA, XBox One, Fire TV
OK, I worked it out. I just put the DS directly into Zone 2 (without the splitter) and set the output of HDMI OUT 1 (to TV) to 4k. This way I can choose between 4k picture and no DS (Zone 2 OFF) or 4k content as 1080p with DS (Zone 2 ON). Works ok for me as there is not so much 4k content yet anyway. If there would be a way to display 4k AND use DS together this would be even better but I believe this is something for a future revision...
Nice to see it would be working voor 4K. But what about the HDR, is this still working like it should?? I have a 65HU8500/SEK3500 and a AVR Onkyo TX-NR656, with second output HDMI. But when i pass the signal through coming out of my Pana UBD900 playing 4K including the HDR, this isn`t working correctly, it downscales to 1080 P SDR instead it should be 4K = HDR on my Sammy. Only when i disconnect the Dreamscreen its on my TV so it should be: 4K =HDR. The Pana is to my AVR and then further to the TV going though the SEK: This is all through HDMI Main, and the Dreamscreen is connected to the HDMI SUB out.
There might be a work around for 4K PC users with dedicated monitor software like UltraMon, Actual Multiple Monitors and Display Fusion. UltraMon can independently mirror your main display at a rate of up to 30fps, at a different resolution (1080p in this case) and you can even assign this process to a separate GPU. There are few demos of these programs, it would be great if someone could check and share the results!
I have a denon AVR-S920W receiver with the dual outputs. If I'm watching 4K the DreamScreen doesn't work, if I'm watching 1080p it works. It would be nice if the DreamScreen would work with 4K..but alas I can't figure it out
This model of the DreamScreen cannot and will not work with 4K. The hardware just isn't able to cope with it. Apparently the next model will support 4K, but I don't expect that to be released until sometime next year.
"Backers, We do have a 4K solution in the works and we will be presenting it to KS backers early next year. In addition, we are working on a lot of cool features which we think you will enjoy. The new DreamScreen will be true UHD with 4K 60Hz and HDCP 2.2 compliant. It will also support HDR. Please note that the new version will be available initially without LEDs (as an option) and at a good discount to allow for convenient upgrade to 4K. The same LEDs can be used with the upgraded hardware."
Even though the Denon has dual outputs, I don't think the Denon receiver is able to send 2 different signals on these outputs... as far as I know, it will always send the same signal on both outputs. So it cannot send a 4K signal to the TV, while sending a 1080p signal to the DreamScreen. The only way you could do that, is with a splitter/scaler that has 4K support and has a bypass option. But the models that can do that, are still pretty expensive...

So what's the consensus on a temporary solution until DreamScreen 4k comes out? Willing to splurge a bit on a pricey solution to use with our new PS4 Pro for now, because who knows how long it'll be until we get DS4K
Looking to purchase a dreamscreen for holidays. I have a 70" Sharp Aquos 4K Ultra HD TV. I only watch Directv through my TV right now. DIRECTV doesn't offer 4K in my area yet. Even tho my TV is 4K capable, will the Dreamscreen still work? Should I wait for dreamscreen to come out with the 4K dreamscreen?
