Currently I'm using USB to play the movie , I'm using Kodi player when default the player will utilities the Graphics hardware to enhanced the image but the image quality is very bad , the color is horrible and shuttering... only way is to unable it so it looks alot better and smoother, downside is the color of the movie is slightly darker.. wondering will that improve if projectile on anti light curtain ? if anyone had experience projectile on anti light curtain as T2 Max is only 150 ansi which could make the image even more darker if projectile on anti light curtain?Mine is Android 9 too with the crappy whale launcher, and not able to access the native android OS settings, even with "shortcut creator" app, it says the launcher is locked and prevent any creation of shortcuts. Appreciate if anyone have any idea how to access the native android OS settings.
The only way I managed to access the developer option is via an app called "developer settings" in play store.
Mine is able to playback youtube 1080p30 quite smoothly with zoom and trapezoid enabled, except when bluetooth is connected.
Btw, I also use avc instead of vp9 codec in youtube as I noticed avc enabled the HW accelerator and thus no dropped frames.
Hmmm... Some websites mentioned it is 250 ansi lumens.Currently I'm using USB to play the movie , I'm using Kodi player when default the player will utilities the Graphics hardware to enhanced the image but the image quality is very bad , the color is horrible and shuttering... only way is to unable it so it looks alot better and smoother, downside is the color of the movie is slightly darker.. wondering will that improve if projectile on anti light curtain ? if anyone had experience projectile on anti light curtain as T2 Max is only 150 ansi which could make the image even more darker if projectile on anti light curtain?
If you didn't use Keystone corrections, then the wanbo is perfectly fluid. If you use/need the Keystone, than you have to use external Hardware and installing latest Firmware. Then there are still a few frame Drops, but in my opinion they are very very minor. Gaming and movies are still good to watch....only If you are a Hardcore User, you will Not be Happy with it.
My wanbo t2 max presented this image as someone put it on a previous page. I did the recovery firmware for the 21052018 and fixed up.
Now sometimes the fan starts to do a high noise like sizzle and a black circle begins to grow in the middle of the screen
Then the fans return to normal, stopping the noise and the circle starts to decreases until it disappears. Does anyone know what might be and how to solve it?

Thanks for the feedback. If I want the same experience as you, will chrome cast be as good?? Thanks.Hi,
I bought the T2 Max international version (with Android 9) a week ago, so I've had time to test it a bit now.
I was able to make different tests on many things to optimize the thing as much as possible and I arrived at a perfect result now and which satisfies me completely, I said to myself that it would be perhaps useful that I make my return here.
First, for the conditions of use, I use the T2 Max with a Fire Stick 4K Max. Forget the integrated android, it can help but it is not good. I bought 33 euros on Amazon the Fire Stick 4K Max, for the price it is well worth it and it gives a boost to T2.
I also use Plex to stream content from my NAS/PC to the T2 Max, in local networks (also tested in Wifi, no problem).
Now you have all the information about how I use the T2 MAX.
But even so there were stutters in 1080p, small but very present during panorama or traveling, while I was in HDMI. I use the trapezoidal correction but I think that 80% of the people will also use it just to make a good rectangular frame. I didn't see any change in the stutters with or without on my version of the T2 Max, it was identical anyway.
After a few tests I noticed that the stutters were greatly reduced if I switched the fire stick to 1080p 50 Hz resolution instead of 1080p 60 hz. I came to two conclusions:
- Forcing 50 Hz and therefore 50 FPS helped to relieve the T2 Max, Fewer frames to calculate per second more power available? maybe.
- Or the T2 Max has a framepacing problem in 60 Hz. After all, movies, series, animation are all either in 24 HZ, 25 Hz or 30 Hz.
I have largely favored this second answer.
Now the things I have done to correct this little stuttering problem:
- Go to the Developer mode on the android of the T2 Max and force the 2D GPU rendering. With my android 9 version, I had to install the "Developer settings" program, easily available on the play store.
- In the Fire Stick 4K Max, in the "Display and Sound" settings, there are two important options. The first one is to leave the resolution on Auto, it will take care of it very well by itself and it is necessary for the next step.
- The second important option is just below: "Match original framerate". On an application that supports it, it allows a 24 FPS movie to pass the T2 Max in 24 hz and thus to have a perfect frametime. Fortunately T2 Max handles the frequency change very well too. Turn it ON !
- Now on Plex, you have the option "Refresh Rate Switch" in Video Settings, which allows you to send the signal to the firestick to change the frequency, which itself will send the signal to T2 Max. Activate it !
After doing this, now when I start any movie, serie, anime on PLEX, no matter what frequency it is, whether it's 24 Hz, 25 HZ, 50 Hz or 60 Hz, the firestick will adapt and change the signal to match.
Result: An ultra fluid image and frametime, a perfect match. No stuttering even minimal, nothing! It's perfect.
With or without Zoom, with or without trapezoidale correction.
And I've tested every possible situation given my library, believe me. Movies in 4K, in 1080p, in 480p, in PAL, in NTSC, anime, series. And I have seen absolutely no problems.
Having spent time configuring it, I thought I'd share my feedback. I don't regret my purchase, this projector is incredible once it's mastered.
For less than 150 euros (T2 Max + fire Stick) I have an ultra fluid projector, which reads everything, which does everything, with a good image and without slowing down.
Sorry for the large amount of text, I hope it helps some people here.
