Exactly, a much better compromise. Pioneer's explanation doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Unfortunately the ludicrous price of the Onkyo range in the UK rules these out for now. I might have...

All good points and sound advice :). I would stay put for a couple of years if I had an X700/rs57 like you do, but I really have to upgrade at least my projector (X30/rs45) by the beginning of 2015,...

Sure, I meant re the topic of this thread, ie bluray 4K, HDCP 2.2 and the video side of things :).

Apparently the first 4H UHD channels have got a greenlight (no date for start of broadcast though, so we're probably at least 1-2 years away from seeing anything). They would support up to 10 bits...

Yes at the moment it's either Onkyo with HDMI 2.0b and HDCP 2.2 or the others with HDMI 2.0a and NO HDCP 2.2.

Mike, Atmos at the home is pretty well defined. These models can support 5.1.4 or...

If you know your black level (or can estimate it) you can enter it manually in the options in Calman, but with an X500 you should just aim for power 2.4, especially if you activate the DI after...

I would agree with you if they had put HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2, which was the established interim solution until now.


With the majority of the AVR industry deciding for HDMI 2.0a without HDCP...

Hi Alex,


My bet with Mark was specifically about Bluray 4K happening before the end of this year.

You don't need to use 5.3.1 (I assume that's what you meant) anymore, the issue with the Radiance LUT found in the 5.3.5 betas and RCs has been fixed in 5.3.5 final.

That I don't know as I've never used ArgyllCMS to generate a LUT (I used Calman), I let those who know answer back. It looks to me that you are, at least for a first test, but I might be wrong.

You don't need it to generate the cube, so I would just skip this test for know.

I don't think it makes any sense to upgrade your HDMI chain if you don't have a 4K display with HDMI 2.2 already (or plan to acquire one). At the moment, it means a Sony, but hopefully by the end of...
