Thank you Cinema Mad-- this idea definitely works.

I am thinking about going back to 2.30 firmware from 2.32. Sometime coming out of 3D bypass my projector stays in 120hz mode when it should go back to 60hz. I have only noticed this with my Directv DVR so have to experiment more with bluray 3D to be sure. I can clear it up by turning off and on the Duo. It never did this with 2.30.

Anybody else have a problem like this with 2.32 firmware? Another thing I noticed is with two projectors plugged in when I turn off my JVC and turn on my acer for 3D the cms would change to the HDMI output that was active. Now I have to manually select the output I want to use. So basically if watching HDMI2 it will keep using HDMI1 CMS settings. It used to auto change to the output settings for the projector that is turned on. Now it doesn't with 2.32.

I never had a problem with 2.30. I use the internal test screens to calibrate so was thinking I needed the RGB color conversion bug changes for the test patterns.

Anbody else with a two projector setup have this problem?

Update: discovered the problem I have is not the Duo but a new Darbeevision Darblet between the Duo and one of my projectors. So basically a HDMI handshake issue. Duo is functioning just fine.

Hi,

I'm sure this has been asked before. I am trying to vertical shift my picture up. But the shift function in the Input Aspect Ratio page does not work. Could someone give me some guidance. Thanks

Update: Figured it out. You can only shift a ZOOMED image.

My Duo takes forever to switch inputs. Is this normal?
post #3245 of 3835
I wouldn't say so, mine is always say within 5 seconds

Did anyone see the May Home Theater article on the Duo and Lumagen Radiance? I found it interesting.

Bluechunks provided a link; you can go to the article there. It's a review/comparison of both VPs, and it shows what a tremendous value the Duo is, despite the fact that in absolute terms the Lumagen may give a bit better performance. The Duo is less expensive than even the baby Radiance, the Mini 3D, with greater connectivity. Not having done a comparison myself, I'm not certain the improvement is worth the extra money for me. I would need the Radiance XS, which is 3K.

I understand the Lumagen has virtual ports so the limited output on the Mini might be overcome for most, nonetheless the Duo is a great value although support is another issue.

Version 2.32 seems to be very stable. No problems here...I thought I had a problem recently and it had nothing to do with the Duo.

Is anyone else using an PCH-A210 with the Iscan Duo?

I seem to be suffering from picture Judder when the PCH's framerate sync is set to NTSC/Pal/24p . If I set the PCH's Framerate to Off this goes. If I remove the Duo from Circuit and set it back to NTSC/Pal/24p I experaince no Judder.

So I am guessing there is a conflict somewhere along the line.


Any ideas??

Are you using 1:1 frame rate output on your Duo?
post #3254 of 3835
Yep, I have 1:1 Frame Rate enabled


Having tested it again, the fault appears to be with the PCH. When set to NTSC/Pal/24p or NTSC/24p I experience judder on Blurays.

You can force 1080i film to output 1080p/24 but you have to force it by setting your Duo output to 1080p/24 and you have to disable 1:1 frame rate for this to work.
What you could try is use the second output on the Duo to your same displays second input. Turn off 1:1 frame rate and set the second output to 1080p/24. Then you just select the output you want to view.

I didn't realise this, so I have now set mine to 1080p/60. But it does seem odd though, you would have thought if you wanted 1080p/24, then it would have to be set to 1080p/24.


The juddering I was experiencing has now gone, I have used these settings within my PCH's menu:

Video output - 1080P/24
Framerate sync - NTSC/PAL

How do you set the Frame Lock option? Auto lock or unlocked?

Thanks
post #3258 of 3835
Here's something new I found tonight. I have my TV connected to the HDMI 1 output on my Duo, yet unless I have the 'Second output' selected to on, in the Output Setup, then use HDMI 2 Output Select, I cannot control the Popcorn hours volume using the Popcorn hours remote control. confused.gif


Any ideas why this is?

Oh cool!

Yeah my projector defaults the Duo to output 1080i instead of 1080p so that was the only way it would work for me. Forcing 1080p out. The Duo works best forcing an output mode. My second 3D projector is a 720p projector and works great changing between the two projectors automatically changing output modes 1080p to 720p.

I have a two projector setup so both outputs are active. Popcorn hours remote??

There is a volume control on the popcorn hours remote, which adjusts the volume gain within the PCH, I find this handy when viewing Movies on my TV using the TV's speakers. 'No amp'

Yet unless I have the Second output enabled, then select HDMI 2 ouput, 'even though my TV is connected to HDMI 1' I am unable to use the PCH volume control. Just seem a little backward.

I will try swapping the TV's HDMI lead to HDMI output No2 after and see what brings. Just I find the HDMI 2 output on the Duo to be a better HDMI plug fit, and as my PJ's hdmi cable is of a heavier gauge, it is prone to falling out of the HDMI 1 port.

It really doesn't matter, just one thing I noticed the other night......................... Boy, I'm confused with my own post!confused.gif

Find the Colour Adjustment Pattern next to useless - is there anyway to replace this particular pattern with something more useful?
Would also like better Brightness and Contrast Patterns as well.
Currently using AVCHD 709 Blu-ray, but would prefer to use the iScan Duo onboard patterns, and eliminate more additional complications.
post #3264 of 3835
I asked the same in the past and never received a reply back. I find it best to do as you are. Use those three patterns form a disk in a device known not to alter the output.

No problem - the AVCHD Blu-ray goes in either the OPPO 93, or Sony 790, depending which is empty at the time.
post #3266 of 3835
Can someone advise me the steps on how to do a full backup and restore of all Duo settings using the Duo Control Panel utility?

I believe either my Duo or my Anthem 700 is developing some sort of handshake issues and lost of audio on all channels have becoming annoying so I want to first get the Duo completely reset to test it out, since all video sources go through the Duo and all sources are having audio dropout, there are also more non DHCP display error messages popping up.

How does the Duo's CMS work, are the Night and Day profiles shared by Hdmi 1 and Hdmi 2 output, or can you have 2 profiles per output?

Each display can have two profiles! I am not sure how many display memories it can store. I have two programmed and when I plug in a new display it looks like I start from scratch. When I go back to my original display the CMS settings are still there.

Cheers Ronomy, I thought this was the case but wasn't quite sure. I only found this out when playing with the PC based control panel at the weekend.

Feel a bit silly as i've had my Duo over a year now, but I am still finding new things it can do all the time. smile.gif

Yeah that control panel brought the Duo to a whole nother level! Best bang for the buck VP out there...especially when you need plenty of switching.
