I can't always reply to PM's, if you need extra assistance visit:
1. VLC works
2. but netflix, youtube, chrome, firefox and all other video formats are blank image.
1. Ok. So, Windowed and Full-Screen?
2. What about these? They work in a Windows, but not full screen?
I assume you are using the laptop's HDMI-Out, right?
What happens with the 4K HDTV? You said you tried it, but what happens (test as above).
Does the laptop detect these HDMI displays, and are you using ...
1. Output to only HDMI port only (like with Function Key switch).
2. Using this new "display device" as a "Mirrored" display or an Extended Desktop?
I have an Epson 8350. It's a torch carrying workhorse ... love it! My room is multi-use (non-light controlled).
Having trouble with HDMI full-screen DRM content sort-of sounds like a HDCP problem, but I don't think all those sources have DRM.

Projector runs everyting fine, games and all

FIXED - message from....
Looks like this is a compatibility issue between Optimus and Windows 10. You can try 2 workarounds:
Open Chrome > Settings > Advance settings > System: and disable the Hadware Acceleration.
Or, open device manager and disable the Intel graphics card every time you are using the external, then unable it when you're not.
Let me know!
