This would need a new firmware.
As I just read that Linker now supports DV, that exactly what I would expect it to do when the new firmware is out. Of course I could be wrong.[/QUOTE]
CalMAN can generated DV patch only via software pattern generator (if the notebook HDMI has bit perfect RGB output) or using Murideo Six-G or VideoForge PRO 4K external pattern generator.
It's not supporting DV for hardware SDR patch generators.
HD Fury can't do any conversion or patch generation when it's receiving DV signal, it just pass-it-thou, you can't even see if it's 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 or the dynamic metadata). I have asked HD Fury a lot of months ago if they can add patch generation feature, they were negative.
The insertion of HD Fury to the video signal chain when you will use a notebook HDMI output for DV patch generation is only for generating DV Relative Mode patches.....So to send to a display a special HDR10 metadata which will disable the display internal DV tone mapping, so the display will have Power Law Gamma response when you do this a...to calibrate for Gamma 2.2 as target...because DV expect a calibrated 2.2 Gamma display to apply their internal mapping....and then after uploading the new DV file to the display internally (currently LG 2017 OLED's support this), you take post-cal measurements with DV Absolute mode patch generation.
For DV Absolute mode you don't need HD Fury when you are using the CalMAN's software DV (Absolute mode which has enabled the DV mapping) patch generation, if you use any bit perfect RGB output of any notebook/PC.
