New DVDO iScan VP50 - Page 207

post #6181 of 6314
I am using software 1.06 and have been trying to find a "pass-through" setting. Is there a specific menu item for this setting or are we just talking about matching an input signal to a matching display profile configuration? Thanks.
post #6182 of 6314
I think that feature only exists in the VP30.
post #6183 of 6314
Does anyone know if there is a chance, even a small one, that DVDO will ever include in the VP50 or the Pro a full blown CMS like the one their competitor have in their top of the line or this is of no interest for ABT? does the hardware of the VP50 have spare room for it? or in case they decided to do it, it could ony be done in the Pro? is it really difficult to design and implement one?
Even if the VP50s can do more than the new Edge, the gap is not as big as ther price difference and I think this functionality would restore the balance between the entry level and the high end. I'd love to have a memory for each input signal that could be part of a profile or at least have 4 assignable to inputs.
I think someone mentioned in another thead that this might be a feature of a future VPx0 but for those of us with no so deep pockets it´'ll be great news if we could have a taste of it without having to spend more money.

On 11-8 I mailed Aaron to send me the missing 12 way flat cable that runs from the trigger board to the main board.
No response.
If someone @ dvdo reads this, could he please remind him?

It's time to upgrade the HT and after lurking on this board for a while, I thought I'd solicit some input. Not my first post, but I haven't posted in many years and have since changed my e-mail.

After a recent move, I can no longer block enough ambient light to effectively use my projector during the day. I plan on adding an LCD behind the dropdown screen to deal with this, for daytime gaming and TV.

With an impending installation of DISH Network this week and a new Wii Console, I need an AV switcher that can accept component and HDMI inputs. Ideally it will also output RGBHV. I also have an HTPC putting out a VGA signal, but can upgrade the video card to output component or HDMI.

Current Setup
Display:
Sony VPL-VW12HT 720p projector (RGBHV & Component inputs)
1080p ~42" LCD (no idea which one yet)
Receiver:
Harmon Kardon AVR85 receiver (circa 1997, supports digital optical/coax inputs and 5.1 Dolby)
Sources:
PS3
WII
DishNetwork VIP 622 or 722 (not delivered yet)
HTPC

I can get a good deal on a B-Stock VP50 through an authorized dealer, but wondering if it's worth the $. I've got a set budget for an LCD and AV switcher and the VP50 takes up close to half of it. Is the performance gain in PQ significant enough to sacrifice on the quality of an LCD? I'll sneak this last one in here too - if I'm doing all my video processing with the VP50, can I risk a 1080p LCD that has a great panel and weak video processing?

I like the VP50 as it appears to handle all of my input and output needs, it's at a decent pricepoint, and I can have it connected to both a 1080i projector and 1080p LCD (but can only have one output active at a time). If it can scale all my sources to output everything in 1080i to the projector and 1080p to the LCD and I calibrate it correctly, I might just have a respectable budget system.

Thanks!

If all you're doing is a greyscale calibration, the color space doesn't matter - that's independent of properly setting the RGB gain/bias on your display to achieve D65.

If you're planning on calibrating the display's gamut as well, then you'll have to worry about what colorspace the patterns that you're using are designed for.

Hi guys,

What is the most preffered, better de interlacing mode for a 576p signal

thanks in advance

576P is already deinterlaced.

Assuming you mean you want to use PREP to convert it back to 576i then deinterlace it? .... it depends entirely what the source material is. I leave mine on Auto most of the time but today noticed the F1 picture quality was so awful on ITV (in spite of that very cool helicopter camera) that I had to force it into Video mode to avoid quite a bit of combing.
post #6191 of 6314
dlm10541,
I should have explained in more detail, sorry about that

choddo2006,

(yep Prep enabled)
I know what you mean, I too was watching the F1 last night.

This might of seemed like a stupid question to ask(after having it for a year), but reason being is that I was,have been experiencing a bad vertical judder(only with inputting progessive signals , so last night I had a play around with the VP.

I turned off the Prep function and then, took a look at the cadence detection which was off, so I enabled,turned on the cadence detection and then turned on the Prep function and PRESTO the verticl judder was gone.
Back to great viewing,this thing still amazes me

Thanks for replying Guys

Does anyone have any idea on the release date for the next VP50 official firmware? Last beta dates to April.
post #6193 of 6314
It wouldn't suprise me if it has been EOL'd already. Don't hold your breath waiting for an update.

Who do you think they are - Lumagen?
post #6195 of 6314
If there will be no more updates, I'd appreciate knowing that, too. There are whispers around these forums of a couple of features working their way toward release; if they aren't coming, I can plan accordingly.
post #6196 of 6314
There is no reason for the VP50 to be EOL since it's not like the EDGE can replace it and even the VP50Pro is suffering from the same lack of updates.

There might be no reason to do it and happen anyway as it depends on the effort(cost)/benefit(profit) ratio. As you say, the Pro hasn't had any updates for some time and some users are complaining on many issues, if ABT has to assign its limited resources, which product/s do you think will get them? I might be wrong but I don't think the VP50 is their top selling product right now.

I was looking at the output format and 1080P 24 is greyed out, any idea on how to select it?

You need to have at least one signal (check Frame Rate Conversión) being output as 24p usually its 24->24 but by default it comes 24->59.94.

Do you mean a source has to output 24P to be able to select it? I am a little confused.

I recently got a new display that accepts it, that is why I am asking.

Thanks

Follow these steps and not only should 1080p-24 not be grayed out but once you have set up Auto Display Profiles it will be recalled automatically.

Guys, I got a problem. I just sold my SDI Modified DV-981HD, which I used for YEARS with no problems, with my VP30 w/ABT card and SDI module. Well, I recently sold the unit to a gentleman and he is insisting that the unit I sold him does not work.

Below is what we know thus far:

1. The OPPO DV-981 is set at NTSC
2. The VP50 has the latest firmware. It's practically brand new.
3. The problem is not the HDMI cable, tried several of them.
4. The OPPO DV-981 is output to the VP50 and the VP50 is output to the display which is a brand new Panasonic 1080P plasma.
5. The settings are correct in the OPPO DV-981 and VP50 as far as I know
6. As a standalone, with the OPPO connected directly to the plasma, at 1080P, the flashing blue streaks across the screen are always there and the display blanks out including the audio every minute or so. At 480P, no
blue streaks and no blanking out but the image is small (480 displayed in
a 1080 screen). So as a standalone, with the OPPO DV-981 directly connected to the display at 1080P, the blue streak and blanking will always be there.
You can use 480P but it displays a small image. I think this means that this OPPO DV-981 cannot display 1080p properly and as I said before I have a DV-980 and 1080p is displayed properly with no issues.
7. With OPPO DV-981 connected to the VP50, at 480p or 1080p, the streaks go away and no blanking.
9. Here is my connection when trying to use SDI:

OPPO DV-981==> SDI Out ==> BNC cable ==> VP50 SDI In
VP50 HDMI Out ==> HDMI cable ==> Plasma HDMI In
Result: Blank screen, no sound

VP50 Remote: SDI button pressed. Result: VP50 Blue light does not come on. Always red which means no SDI signal detected from the OPPO DV-981.
Display remained blank, no sound.

In the above setup, the only connection from the OPPO DV-981 to the VP50 is via the SDI ports using the BNC cable. No other cables used.

I was thinking perhaps a HDCP issue but he says his DV 980 works fine with 1080P.
post #6204 of 6314
You may need to connect an audio cable from Oppo to the VP50. HDMI normally requires audio and video signal and you have no audio signal coming in.

Worth a try.
post #6205 of 6314
Awesome idea.

He was under the impression an audio signal was carried over BNC via the SDI
post #6206 of 6314
dlm10541 has made A good point because this is true for HDSDI moded Blu-Ray players as well, having the HDMI cable connected to get sound and picture, Let us know how it goes ulownz....

Cheers....

Hi Guys,

Im looking for help from the Experienced.

This is somewhat the same problem as my last post.

I am experiencing very very bad vertical and horizontal judder.
It is so jerky that it is unwatchable.
I had turned off the VP and pulled the plug from the wall and I let it sit
for the day and it had seemed to fix.

But upon viewing for about 4 to 5 hours the problem reappeared.

I am starting to think this problem rares its head when the unit starts to heat up because it only happens after a certain period(stated above)
could that be possible?

How can I check to see if the fan is working?

The problem persists on all input resolutions
The output is set to 1080p50(and 1080p60 accordingly)

This is scary(out of warranty)for me

Any help or info on this would be MOST appreciated.
Thanks

Rick

You didn't tell us what sources you are using.
post #6209 of 6314
Oppo 980 dvd player(I have tried all output resolutions)(HDMI)

Digitalview DVR810 outputting 576p and 1080i(HDMI)

VP50 connected to a Sony KDS60R2000 via HDMI(which by itself is smooth,no jerks with
above mentioned products)

These are the products that I am currently do all my viewing for FTA and dvd's
If I bypass the VP all is good.

If the problem keeps persisting I might try and update it(current f/w is 1.07)
to see if that helps.

Thanks Guys.
post #6210 of 6314
Do not use the 50Hz output setting, some screens don't like it.
Stick to 60 Hz.
Of course the input may be 576, but instead of 576i I would advise to set the input equipment to 576p and use PPreP.
VP50 does not like 576i inputs very much and often shows tearing on the RH screen part or on the entire pic, or just a black screen, or judder.
Check the timings for 1060p (output setup) and fiddle a bit with sync and other hor timings (remember where you were before trying!).
I experienced a heat issue on two Pro's until I got the second replacement, this one seems OK.
Now I have a non-pro too and it's working flawlessly for some months now.
By all means do the 1.07 upgrade!
