Other possible issue - sometimes an other Remote (My LG TV Remote) interferes with the Radiance, messing up settings. (Plus wife periodically when in one of those moods, starts pushing all kinds of buttons!) Have to periodically check Info to see where the Radiance is at. Oft times commented on the PQ Quality, to only find I've been watching 720P or something worse!

New Calman Version 5.3.5 Final Version, Build #1597 , is out that's suppose to have some corrections re the Radiance line of VQs

http://color.spectracal.com/downloads

Spectracal Forum Member mentioned using dE94 instead of dE2000 - Tried last night with faster AutoCal results, and a Superior data results for both the Gamma and 3D LUT 125 Point.

Just to follow up on Doug Blackburn's earlier thoughts , the Radiance menus and info screens display fine.

The latest changelog (070314) suggests that might be fixed now.

Do you mean `by' Lumagen team soon, or as quoted, you are part of the team and helping out?

Production 070414- Another rs232 test pattern problem fixed. An issue with screen being blank fixed. Problem with using left arrow on remote for aspect changes fixed.
Will this be the last?

I have a RadianceXD that I'm currently not using, and have put up for sale (currently using my Anthem MRX 300 receiver for HDMI switching).

I have just bought a 75" Samsung F8000 TV, and I'm wondering if I will experience 'better' picture quality, and faster HDMI input switching, by adding the RadianceXD to the HDMI chain again, bypassing the Anthem?

I only use 1080p, and my HTPC can't output HD audio, so it doesn't matter that the RadianceXD's HDMI ports doesn't support those formats.

Thanks for any input

/Martin

07 FW Series

It was mentioned that the new 07 Firmwares, and today's brutal Videos that are now being put out, will increase internal power requirement levels on the Radiance a minimal amount. So, like all electronics, just make sure your Radiance does have adequate ventilation.

A slight correction.

What I meant was software releases have over time increased power slightly as features were added to the FPGA. This was meant as a general statement over the entire history of the Radiance and not specific to recent releases.

These increases are very small, and likely will not affect your unit or the need for cooling. Peter's case that we were discussing was a specific case and not to be applied in general.

Adequate ventilation is still the norm for most electronics. I have the XS-3D on top of my DirecTV Receiver, and the Sony BD player on top of the XS. All with additional Paint Sticks under the feet for added clearance for ventilation. All at the prompt of my wife of all people!

Boy that's creepy - my Radiance is also on top of my DirecTV DVR . It does have about 3 inches of headroom in the shelf.

For a few years I have had my sources cabled hdmi to XS and where possible to a Demon AVP-8000 SSP by digital audio and analog audio and video. And it all worked. A few days ago I wanted to do a minor reconfiguring for operational convenience.

My XS, updated 080314, has inputs: 1) Sony DHG-HDD500 DVR, 2) Denon 3930 DVD, 3) Pioneer BDP-320 BluRay, 4) Tivo Premier (Dolby Digital out). Outputs are: HDMI 1 Sony Ruby PJ, HDMI 2 nothing, until three days ago co-ax out nothing. At that time I connected co-ax out to a unused input on the AVP.

Based on Section 6 of the XS Owner's Manual I changed the audio configuration from its defaults to:
Always, USER1 EDID, PCM 2Ch 44.1Khz Y, PCM 2Ch 48Khz tried both N and Y, PCM 5.1Ch 44.1Khz tried both N and Y, and DD 5.1Ch Y.
HDMI 1 Off, HDMI 2 Off, SPDIF On norm

I cycled power on the tivo, XS, and AVP. Tests were done over two evenings.

When I select XS input 4 the AVP which used to do multi-channel from the optical digital audio of the tivo now has no indication of connection. Tivo forums do not help.

When I select the input on the AVP where the co-ax from the XS is connected I get connection and sync indication but no sound when the source is powered up. If the source is powered down I lose these indications. For tests I used XS inputs 1 and 4 with identical results.

I have searched regarding audio problems with tivo and Lumagen. Appallingly I could not find a simple authoritative statement of how the tivo audio output works. I thought I understood the XS processing but apparently not as the same problem exists on two inputs. I do not know where to go from here except total retreat.

Addendum: Just played a CD on input 2. Music from DVD player through both analog out and digital to AVP. Nothing from XS out.

Humbug2:

Have you tried SPDIF output set to "Basic?" Some older receivers (or audio processors) do not work with the "Normal" SPDIF output mode. It is also possible your receiver is not compatible with the SPDIF output chip we use. This not likely but it is possible.

If this does not help you can call our office at 503-574-2211 or email support@lumagen.com, and we will try to help.

I haven't been able to route HDMI audio to S/PDIF since at least firmware 011814. HDMI handling has gotten worse in 072214. Sometimes 720P and 1080i from my DirecTV box look jaggy. When I go look at the input on my XD, it thinks the input is 480i. Putting it in standby and turning it back on usually fixes it.
