I am NOT having any sound issues with the Linker set to SINK and after my AVR in the chain. If you place it between the AVR and JVC, then I'd expect the AVR would get the sound as sent by the Oppo...

Haven't checked since last night. I'll do that later and report.

As for powering the Linker, as I've indicated without a remote IR method, this isn't a good solution. I don't physically power...

First, I left the Linker where it is between the AVR and JVC. I switch the EDID back from custom 18 to SINK. That was my only change and switched to Oppo from HTPC. I proceeded to watch all of...

Just an update to this comment, I'm not suggesting that everyone rush out and buy a Linker. I'm having several issues getting it to work correctly in my setup. I think CJ is too. It may be an...

Excellent summary for those that appear to have recently started posting in this thread. My added two cents / advice would be this:

If your screen size is too big, don't expect HDR to work well. ...

CJ, you're a genius! I set the Linker to SINK and place it back between the AVR and JVC. I had to reboot the HTPC, but it came back up fine at 4K. I used my Harmony to switch over to the Oppo. It...

I had some issues with placement of the Linker in my setup. I'm using an HTPC as the platform for running the 200-DPI GUI for the Linker via USB. I run 3840x2180@24 4:2:2 12-bit on my HTPC with...

Looks like you already purchased Ray's patterns. Definitely worth the $25, especially if you want to do more in-depth calibration of HDR in the future. As someone already answered, you set CR to...

Choice of Gamma curve depends on your screen. For larger screens with minimal gain like mine, I've decided on the JVC-800-600-4000 curve. The 140-1100-4000 V2 curve also works well. You'll need to...

Good deal. I did find the JVC-800-600-4000 version a little brighter than the older V2 version which I liked.

Finally got around to testing Manni's 2-17 JVC-xxx-xxx-4000 curves and pretty much settled on JVC-800-600-4000 as my preferred curve in High Lamp, IRIS -5, and color 0. I was able to lower BR a few...

As I told Kevin, using Manni's 140-1100-4000 V2 curve, I bumped my color to +7 in the JVC by eyeballing it to compensate for the lower saturation. It sounds like a lot, but isn't really on my...
