EDID Override Thread - Page 79

post #2341 of 3084
Just use the "Sony TV (actual)" EDID that you posted before (#2328) to override. It has a right audio descriptor for your AVR. OTOH the AVR EDID there is truncated, so maybe there's a problem with the EDID sent by the AVR.

Maybe doing a clean-up of the registry (section 4 in my sig.) could help too. Other than that, did you check the HDMI cables?

Hi, thanks very much for the quick reply.

1) Have already done the registry clean - did that before trying to fix this as per my last post. Unfort. didn't help, but at least ruled out one potential reason for the issue.

2) I thought I'd attached the files in my previous post (taken from another poster in this thread) b/c there is definitely a problem with the ones I currently have - I can either have 1080/24 resolution (by attaching TV directly to PC) or I can have 5.1 channels for sound (by connecting everything via receiver), but I cannot for the life of me get both, so I thought I'd start from scratch with someone else's EDID data.

I have ruled out HDMI cable as I can get one or the other but not simultaneously so it would seem its a setting issue, not a hardware/cable issue...(maybe I'm wrong on that, but would prefer to try all software resolutions first before laying out $ for new cables - so if need to do that so be it...).

any chance you could combine the two attachments so I can give that a try as a last resort? Sorry, I know you must be sick of all these requests - I ask out of desperation!

Your HDMI1.2a, older generation AVR is the problem. It only accepts 1080i resolutions:

Detailed Descriptor #1: Preferred Detailed Timing (1920x1080i @ 60Hz) (Modeline: "1920x1080i" 74.250 1920 2008 2052 2200 1080 1084 1094 1124 interlace +hsync +vsync)

Detailed Descriptor #2: Detailed Timing (1920x1080i @ 50Hz) (Modeline: "1920x1080i" 74.250 1920 2448 2492 2640 1080 1084 1094 1124 interlace +hsync +vsync)

You could use separate HDMI connections but it's unnecessary as the AVR is only capable of SD audio, so just go HDMI to the TV and S/PDIF to the AVR.

Hi,

Thank you for looking at this. I must be doing something wrong with my edid data pulls (which seems strange since its just a matter of using moninfo). But my avr can definitely do 1080p - I use it nearly every day and can play 1080p (just not at 24hz which I know it can do as we'll). So something is wrong with my edid data. Thats why I am trying to use someone else's data to see if that will work.

I have been playin around with moninfo trying to 'merge' data and can't for the life of me get it right. I can see when I load those files I attached (in my most recent post) that the right data is in there. E.g. The kdl46x3100 file (when loaded in moninfo) shows that it can play 1080p/24.

The Yamaha file however doesn't seem to sho the audio formats it should support so maybe that's why I can't get it to work?

I must look like an idiot. I KNOW the issue is with the EDID's I just can't merge the right files....
post #2345 of 3084
But even if the AVR does 1080p why bother with such complications as EDID overrides at all when you don't need it? Your setup will work just fine with audio over S/PDIF. Anyway if you insist take a look at the Sony overrides listed in my sig. and try the one closer to your TV (regardless of AVR, as it doesnt matter for the test). If it works post the native EDID of your Sony TV and I'll do the custom mod.
post #2346 of 3084
i really want to use hdmi for everything (have wall mounted speakers and will be a pain in the *ss to run a different cable in the wall!).

So here's another attempt at attaching my actual TV EDID - i have just the htpc attached to the TV, no receiver in use at all. So I guess what I need added to this file is the audio stuff that somehow found its way into the TV file I previously posted (my original post a few days ago, not the one from today)? That must have been the active registry EDID, rather than the 'real time EDID' (at least that's what I think I must have done).

DTS-HD good! Thank you TULLI!
Only one problem: BD 3D not yet.
Please fix.
Thanks agains.

Sorry, there's nothing more to do via the EDID. Your override is an exact replica of your 3DTV video specs + audio block from the AVR. If it is not a software problem try separate connections.

Could someone help me out with my LG TV? It would be much appreciated, I'm kinda at a loss doing it myself. LG.txt 2k .txt file
post #2352 of 3084
I've just created an EDID override for my Samsung plasma and Denon receiver and it's fixed my audio and resolution switching issues! Yay! Unfortunately, now my NVidia 680 keeps switching from YCbCr to RGB whenever I change screen mode/refresh in MediaPortal. rolleyes.gif

Is there a way to stop NVidia cards always switching to RGB when using an EDID override driver?

No, this is a driver problem, but I copy and paste a known fix for RGB, and I presume 2 is the code for YCbCr (1 for RGB, but please double-check):

Run the driver installation file to the point where the file contents are extracted. Then cancel the rest of the installation.

Go to the folder where the files contents were extracted to.

Search for the file nv_disp.inf and open it.

Search for the section [nv_miscBase_addreg__01]

Under this section add the registry value:

HKR,,SetDefaultFullRGBRangeOnHDMI,%REG_DWORD%,2

Repeat this step for [nv_miscBase_addreg__02] and [nv_miscBase_addreg__03] and so on until all [nv_miscBase_addreg__xx" have the above registry value.



Save this .inf with the changes and run the setup.exe in the directory.

I'm trying to get the PC to send 5.1 surround by overriding the EDID using the hack in this thread. Can't seem to make it work.
post #2356 of 3084
Need the full real-time EDID (256 Bytes). Anyway, try the attached mod. It has the same preferred video timings of your TV.

Thanks but no luck, unfortunately. All it did was crush all of the darker colours in RGB mode. Interestingly, the RGB switch problem only occurs for a few times after a reboot, then if I switch back to YCbCr mode it seems to "stick" from then on.

I think my set up is fairly typical so I'm surprised more people haven't noticed this
post #2359 of 3084
I think I'm loading your guy's EDID files right, but I still only get 2 channel generic audio all the time.

MONINFO always has real-time as what I attached below. Interestingly enough, it says 1920x1080, 30 even though its brand new, says 1080p, and works fine with all the timings for 60 work just fine.

Registry Active in moninfo shows whichever file I load from this forum right (LGE or Samsung, whichever I try), except Extension Blocs says 1 (Unknown - 0x00). There is no audio info in registry-active of moninfo.

I've been at this for SEVERAL hours. I just want 5.1 output over HDMI frown.gif

These settings do not apply to my Yamaha RX-373. I will try hooking up my laptop and seeing what it sees, then I might try blocking pin 19. If none of that works I guess its HDMI Detective from amazon.

Does the EDID Override have to be specific to the device? I was under the impression the override would ignore the system entirely.
post #2362 of 3084
See if the attached EDID override makes a difference.

Don't really understand your question but the EDID override is a mod of a specific EDID (and thus of a specific device).

The settings still apply, they may just be located elsewhere. If you are only getting 2 channel audio, you need to set the HDMI audio to the Amp and not TV. On newer models like my RX-A3000, go to Setup -> HDMI -> Audio Output

I have it set to AMP as per the user manual. The only other setting in there I could think of that could be mucking things up is HDMI Control, which I don't need, so I'm gonna turn it off. The HDMI settings are pretty limited. The only other options are

-TV Audio Ouput, which I can't turn off but I have set to AV4 (not being used)
- Standby Sync (Selects whether to use HDMI control to link the standby behavior of the TV and the unit) I don't even remember what this is set to
- ARC (I have no idea what this does)
- SCENE (I have no idea what this does)

I'll try your override tonight Mr. T!

I am trying to simply get my TV to accept DTS and DD via hdmi. I cant seem to figure out how to edit the edid inside moninfo. I see the line in the moninfo that says audio supported 2.0, but where do i go to edit that ?
post #2366 of 3084
Look through the thread for a mod for a similar TV. Otherwise get the audio block from the .inf with the override, fix the offset and checksum. Or just post the EDID and I'll fix it. You won't get native DTS anyway, only DTS encapsulated in WAV format works with almost all TVs.

That is my stock file. I tried the lg file you posted (#2356) and it was able to get me dts and ac3, however audio was very choppy and unwatchable.

Thank you so much! You saved me much time and headaches, I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. I spent a good amount of the day troubleshooting and searching forums for a solution, the Edid did it. The new htpc is officially up with everything working properly.

Hi,

I have a TCL 3DTV (LED55V7300Q3D), a Denon AVR (AVR-1713) and an HTPC running a Sapphire AMD Radeon7750 graphics card. When I hook up the HTPC directly to the TV, video and audio work fine. However, when I connect through the AVR, I get a blank screen.
I need help to get my set up to work. Please see attached EDID files.

Cheers
