Because at 4K24 4:2:2 deepcolor or 4K60 4:2:2 deepcolor, no matter if signal is 10 or 12b the bandwidth is exactly the same, it transit in 300MHz container for the first and 600MHz for the second. Option is then useless for cable issue.
So it would help on cable issue only for 4K24 4:4:4 10 or 12b situation or 4K60 4:2:0 10 or 12b situation. where signal bandwidth get impacted for real as not in a container.

It seems like sometime I will lose connection/input signal watch UHD and Netflix through X800, blue screen for approx. 20 seconds or so and the image will come back. Sometime it happens like 2-4 times in a movie, sometimes we make it through the whole movie without any problem. Also occasionally the projector will kick into HDR mode automatically even though I am not watching HDR content and also I already disable the HDR in linker. That's the only thing I change in the Linker from default setting.

Can you please describe video chain and list HDMI cable length between each equipment, ex: SOURCE BRAND/MODEL > 3 meter HDMI > LINKER > 2 METER HDMI > PJ ...
Also please confirm FW version on Linker.

I ask because this is why I bought the linker and it's my fault for not understanding its capabities. Do you have an estimate time to release for this update?
Yes it will be like that and No, it's not your fault, you can put the blame on us for this
It's planned since a while but the guys have been stuck fixing annoying issue and wasted time lately on it as you can read on previous pages.
This will be on next update.

Is this function inherent to the Linker, or would I have to purchase additional management software? Also, does HDFury sell refurbished Linkers at a discount? Thank you.

Yes, you can ask the guys in the JVC thread or read a bit, they have made instructions, step by step, etc... it's all well documented.
And yes, that feature comes with the Linker, it's in the GUI, just a checkbox to click and you are done.

I installed f/w 20 and this issue still exists. Not need to backtrack posts as this issue has always existed for me. In the past I have thought moving the Linker between the avr and projector might fix this but I don't get a (video) signal at all when the Linker is after the avr.
Yes i recall now, thanx, if you cannot find link to initial post, can you confirm it happens in all EDID modes (FIXED/CUSTOM/SINK) or if only one one of them ?

Epson TW9300, Nvidia Shield, Xbox One S: All latest firwares except Linker - read below.
Connection: Shield -> Marantz SR5010 -> Linker -> TW9300
One S -> -"-
In Linker settings: Custom EDID, then I use both the 4k60 and 4k30 presets for 300MHz. BT2020 is set to follow.
I have several small issues that I want to ask about. At the moment the only Linker firmware that is stable for me is 0.19. I've also tried 0.19a and 0.20. Both 19a and 20 I have issues where something doesn't work. But that's not the main problem. The biggest issue I have is that I'm always getting max settings to the projector. I.e. 1920x1080 shows up as UHD resolution. Rec.709 shows up as BT2020 etc. This way I never know what quality the source material is in. And this means I manually have to select Rec.709 for BD and BT2020 for UHD BD. And since the projector thinks it's getting 2020 when I select 709 it does something wierd to the colors. That's the main problem right now.
But there is some other stuff. In the 4k60 preset for 300Mhz if I select 1080p,4:4:4,12b or whatever it's called 24Hz playback gets broken. For movies that are 4k60Hz HDR I would like to downscale this to 1080p 4:4:4 10-bit HDR and then run the e-shift in the projector. This seems to work but whenever I have this selected 24Hz content doesn't work at all. I get some super wierd resolution and wierd colors. I've tried all the latest three firmwares.
It's also a shame that the Xbox black levels are completely broken, but that's another story and I will have to get a dedicated player. What's the best player? I've read recommendations on some Phillips, Panasonic and LG. Oppo is too much cash for me.
So to summerize is there a way to set the linker up so that for BD the projector sees 1080p, Rec. 709, 8-bit but for UHD BD it get's 3840x2160 10-bit 4:2:2 HDR 24Hz or for 4k60Hz(or anything above 30Hz) HDR I get 1920x1080 4:4:4 10b HDR 60Hz?
Just for clarity/confirmation, please confirm HDMI cable length between each equipment.
The issues you mention with the color or 24Hz playback (in red), could be related to FW0.19, do you have that particular issue with 0.19a or 0.20 ?
You said, newer fw bring other issue, please do the test below and let us know if you still have issue with 0.19a or 0.20 by following below procedure:
- Flash latest firmware
- Determine if you are connected WIRELESS or WIRED to the PJ
- IF WIRELESS : HOLD RST and PRESS INP 2 times
- IF WIRED: HOLD RST and PRESS INP 3 times
> If you can get newer firmware working with the above, then simply go in GUI and change 4K60 preset to 1080p and it should behave as you wish.
