New DVDO iScan Duo [2.0 firmware released] - Page 110

post #3271 of 3835
Hello fellow DVDO Duo owners,
I just purchased one used from ebay with no returns. Now I find that I cannot get the Horizontal (or Vertical) Shift function to respond to either the remote control or the front panel buttons. This is under the Input Aspect Ratio submenu. I updated the firmware to v2.32, but that didn't help. All the other functions worked fine both before and after the firmware update. Does anyone have any information to deal with this?

Shift works only on a zoomed image.

Thanks Praz. I just re-read the page before, and someone else had the same question. That's too bad that Shift only works on a zoomed image. My Dish appears off-center, and didn't need to be zoomed in. I did however get that corrected with Dish's own shift control.

Just bought my 3rd iScan Duo for the basement system - it makes calibrating the TVs so much easier, and you only have to contend with 1 HDMI Input on the set. Serial to USB connector on the laptop for calibration makes it alot easier to setup as well.
Put every Duo Input the same, so wherever the wife goes, the same inputs for her to click.

My (simplified) setup:

Denon AVR-4308CI (HDMI1.3a)

Projector RS45 (3D capable)

Bluray player (3D Capable, 1 HDMI out)

 

I'd like to playback 3D BluRay movies with my setup, while keeping the lossless, i.e. HD sound. Bitstreaming for 2D works perfectly by simply looping the HDMI signal through the AVR to the projector. However, with 3D material this does not work. From what I understand a simple HDMI splitter or matrix switcher between player and AVR / projector will not work, as the signal contains video and audio. Since the AVR is not 3D capable, the entire signal chain is considered non-3D capable. This results in either no sound or video or both. I would need a device that strips the (3D) video portion out of the HDMI signal for the AVR signal path, while leaving the audio portion intact. On the same token this device would pass through the 3D video (and audio) to the projector.

 

I was wondering if the Duo with its 2 HDMI outs would do this.

Since the DUO passes 3D, all you need to do is to connect your BD player to the DUO, DUO to your RS45, while the DUO's audio only output connect to your 4308. The DUO has 3 HDMI out, 1 for audio.

Hope this is the answer you need.

Thanks much breadvan. I think that's what I need. Just to confirm I understand correctly, so the Duo would allow me to use a '2D' AVR for HD audio, even if coming from a '3D' source, by connecting it to the Duo's audio HDMI-out, correct?

Since the DUO is splitting the audio to its HDMI audio out, as long as your AVR can decode HD audio then there should be no problem. May be others could verify that. Cheers.

Exactly
In my system Duo HDMI1 to 55 LG flat panel HDMI2 to Epson3010 3D FP and HDMI audio only to Sony AVR to decode DB THD and DTS MA.

Breadvan has it right

BR player is the Panny 220

Has anyone heard of any upgrades to the iScan Duo, or is what I have now, pretty well it?
post #3283 of 3835
I think it's pretty well it.
post #3284 of 3835
I still need to upgrade mine to the 3D firmware sometime. At my last calibration the 3D firmware had just come out and like a dumbass I forgot to update the firmware before the calibration. Or is there a way to backup and automatically reload the CMS data that the calibrator put in the DUO?

There used to be a back up utility that a member had built.  If believe he had posted the downdoad link somewhere in this forum, but not necessarily in this thread.Try a search.

Look for thread by mdehoog, he wrote the Duo control panel.

The new Calman 5 AutoCal and the iScan Duo, have greatly improved my LG 55LHX PQ! Especially with the help of the 3D CMS feature of the iScan Duo.!

Hmm, I thought only Lumagen's Radiance models would be able to support CalMAN's 5 3D LUTs.

You're correct. The Duo does not support 3D LUT calibration.
post #3292 of 3835
Also, doesn't the Duo just pass through 3D? SJ

FWIW:

Chromapure

"Advanced Auto-Calibration. Using a Lumagen processor this new feature allows calibration of 124 colors* throughout the Rec. 709 color space. It is an optional enhancement to the standard auto-calibration add-on and sells for $229 for new users and $79 as an upgrade for existing auto-calibrate users or as an add-on to ChromaPure Professional (Standard auto-calibrate is included for free in ChromaPure Professional)."

I'm meaning, my LG only does Colour and Tint (2D), iScan Duo does Colour, Tint and Saturation (3D).

Aren't tint and hue the same thing?

I think he means HSL, Hue, Saturation and Lightness, to use the commonly accepted terminology.

Yeah, I would have realized this if I had just thought about it a bit more. Brain's a bit fuzzy today.smile.gif

Thankyou Catmother, I knew the iScan CMS did more for my calibration than just using the LG CMS (2D).
