New DVDO iScan Duo [2.0 firmware released] - Page 120

post #3571 of 3831
I'm a beginner here and I'm trying to understand the brightness contrast pattern on the Duo. I noticed to bars in the black section is the inside bar meant to be visible or no ?

Thank you

Btw happy Easter to you all.

The Contrast and Brightness patterns on the VQs are not the best. Use the AVS 709 DVD.
Once you get your Calman up and running, there's a workflo for more accurately doing the Brightness and Contrast. (Dynamic Range) Takes me usually about a half hour of going back and forth between the 2, trying to get all the bars closest to Zero.

Download the VP50Pro manual from the DVDO website. It has explanations for the test patterns and other VP settings, which are basically the same as those in the Duo.

I'm thinking of making the switch to Lumagen. Ever since I got into this calibration you start looking into video processors a bit more.
post #3576 of 3831
Once you go 125 Point, there's only up! Not there yet myself, a ColourBox is still out of reach, but the Radiance is definitely a cut about the Duos. Duos good enough for the wife's sets, Radiance for mine! As long as she has Colour, she's happy. Me, have to have Superb Colour! (Plus Great Blacks, and NO Milky Blacks!)

A quick question: Since I installed 2.40 on my Duo, I had to set Output -> Chromaticity to RGBs/709 or my display was too yellow in "Auto" mode (NTSC also works.) Is this expected with some displays (mine is a 50" PHD6 Panasonic Plasma from 2006 or so)?

Also, if you're a Mac user I discovered a way you can use your Mac to update the firmware on your Duo to 2.40 (normally if you try and use a Windows-style drag and drop-style install from a Mac, it will not sync the write before the Duo automatically unmounts the USB device, resulting in a corrupt install.)

1) Go to the Oppo website and download both the 2.40 Firmware from the PC category and the 2.32 Mac Updater
2) Control-Click on "DVDO iScan Duo Updater V232_079K" and select "Show Package Contents"
3) Go to the folder Contents -> Resources
4) Drag the existing .abt file to the Trash
5) Copy the DUO_240_079r-1.abt file to the Contents -> Resources directory; now things should look like this:



6) Run the updater

When the updater runs, it will install the new .abt file and, correspondingly, FW v2.40 to your Duo. (Thanks, Oppo, for making your Mac updater flexible enough to do this without having to resort to renaming the DUO_240 file to match the .abt file removed in step 4 above.)

Hey Guys,


I have a dilemma with my set up and I am looking for some advice.

My set up includes:


Oppo-BDP-95-Blu Ray Player

Pioneer BDP 09FD-Blu Ray Player

DVDO Duo-Video Proccessor

JVC-RS45 Projector

Parsound P7 Multi Analog Pre-AMP


The problem that is occurring is video audio Lip Sync with the combination of my Oppo, DVDO and Parasound.

I purposely purchased the Oppo to take advantage of its analog section that is superb. However when combining it with my DVDO it creates a lyp sinc issue.


DVDO duo does have a lip sync delay but it only works in the digital domain (HDMI Audio) Not Analog. My Pioneer BDP 09FD has a lip sync adjustment that allows me to make the adjustment in the player that allows for the sync adjustment.

Last week Oppo released a firmware update for there new players that now includes an audio sync. I called Oppo in regards to this thinking - great maybe they will be included in the BDP-95 I was disappointed to know that it would not be.

I informed them of my situation and they told me that the release of the new firmware and the addition of the audio sync was specifically a different issue on the new players ONLY and they do not know of any issues with audio sync on the BDP-95.
They said that my problem is not in the player it is the DVDO.

The rep informed me that they can put the request in but most likely will NOT be implemented on the BDP-95.
If you guys can come up with any suggestion on how I can approach a way to get sync the audio with then my system. Other wise I may have to sell my lest then a year player for the new one that allows this adjustment..



Thanks

I can understand wanting to use the Oppo analog outputs for the highest fidelity in music playback, but I find it hard to believe that movie soundtracks would significantly benefit from them. Why not use the digital audio for movies, and the analog audio for music?
post #3580 of 3831
Thanks for the input slb. I am using the dedicated balance analog outputs from the Oppo to the Parasound with excellent results.
Believe me the movie soundtracks do sound significantly better. Besides It's the only way that I can listen to True HD & DTS Mater Audio.
post #3581 of 3831
Does the BDP-105 have a settable analog audio delay?

I have the most up-to-date firmware on my new 105 and a DVDO iScan Duo, so my sync is slightly off, but the firmware notices I saw referred to HDMI Lip Sync.

I'd love it if it could but haven't found a setting for it anywhere. :-(

Thanks in advance…

Oppo 93, Duo Green screen.

Been using an Oppo 93 these last few weeks, now sometimes when I first switch on I get a Green screen, mainly on my PJ, but it did happen on my TV last night. The way I get round this is by switching off the Duo then back on again. What I would like to know is there a setting I need to select to avoid having to do this?

I am not running the Duo's latest firmware.

Have you tried Game mode? That solved a problem I was having with blu-ray discs. I have a Pioneer 09 and a Duo also, with the audio going straight to my preamp via analog and the video (via HDMI) going through the Duo. Game mode's faster processing did the trick for me.

I had this too with my 95, as well as Game mode have you set the Oppo to 'Direct' ?

I now have an Oppo 93, exactly the same thing, but I do not need Game mode set with this model.

I agree, Happy to hang onto the Duo if they did.

What settings do you have the 93 set at? Which color space?
post #3588 of 3831
I would love to see an updated Duo which combines features from their new quick 6. Not to mention do 4K upscale. smile.gif

I guess DVDO is due for another video processor which will able to do 4K upscale, 125 point CMS and with the combine features of Quick 6.

Hi Joe,

The DUO works quite well having just a single input from the Quick6.
If 6 inputs into the Quick6 the single output from the Quick6 to the DUO still recognises them as different. The only exception is it still retains the DUO name for that single input.

So that leaves the other inputs on the DUO free to use for any other inputs.

Hey majicj1,

I tried the game mode setting on the Duo this weekend and the sync issue was improved to a point that its almost undetectable.
Thanks!!
I am so gald that the Pioneer BDP-09FD has the feature to adjust for the error. I adjusted the sync on the 09 to 140MS for the correction.
My Pioneer BDP 09 FD still remains my main Blur Ray Player for all of my 2D viewing. The Oppo-95 is my main 2ch audio and 3D Player.
post #3600 of 3831
I'm looking at the duo for strictly a signal generator during calibration. Are the gray scale/gamma patterns large (windows) and maybe not suitable for some plasmas, or do they have varying sizes? Thanks.
