You might be right. I restarted the Samsung a few times and the menu came up quickly each time. Next will be to switch out to the 25 foot Monoprice Cabernet.

It was your original post where you mentioned the Integral and Radiance that got me thinking about using the Integral. Thanks for that.

Question for everyone I have a Cabernet 40 ft hdmi but I may need a right angle hdmi adapter

Will the adapter lose the high speed and 2.2 capability of the cable or is there any specific brand that will work with no issues

The rs600 is in a lift and it's a little snug on the hdmi. A adapter turning down or up will help greatly
Recommendations????

Update on ISCO II lens for CIH with X7000

After doing some tests I decided to sell the Isco II lens and will go with the zoom method. The ISCO's benefits of have a bit more of an 'analog' picture do not outweigh in my opinion of a loss of sharpness and influence on picture gemetry. Light output and sharpness (eshift activated when zooming to 21:9) of the unut are so excellent that I prefer the picture w/o the lens!

By the way, anyone looking for more clarity on HDR, Spectracal have released a good webinar here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0JA...ature=youtu.be


Well worth watching to better understand the various issues at play regarding HDR calibration, especially with projectors like the new JVCs and especially regarding HDR10.

I have a variety of cables and a variety of lengths. The monoprice Cabernet worked fine for 4K/60 - 4:2:0 8bit.

When I use the Keydigial HD-FIX22, it limits the EDID info the Samsung receives at 4K/60 4:2:0 8 bit. Then the Cabernet 50' cable passes that just fine, but it won't work at 4K/60 4:4:4 10 bit which the JVC allows.

Same thing happens with the Radiance Pro. It only allows 4K/60 at 4:2:0 8 bit. So if it's in the chain, the JVC will sync no problem, but at a lower bit rate and colorspace.
I believe Samsung made a major mistake in not supporting an HDMI output in the disc's native 10-bit, 4:2:0 format (at both 24Hz or 60Hz). There is no need for the player to be forced to convert 4:2:0 to 4:4:4 as that conversion can be done within the UHD display device and it just places additional bandwidth requirements across the HDMI interface. It still appears to me that the K8500 may be providing borderline power levels (perhaps less then than the spec'ed 5 volts) on the HDMI output and that's what powers the amp/equalizer in active HDMI cables..

Thanks for the info Mike.
Looking like Monster Cable may not be the fix we had hoped as zombie has reported better but still buggy.
Others that got this fix had gone through avr when somehow jump starts the HDMI on the jvc. My projector is over my head and anytime I go to 4K/60 I can hear the projector trying to lock into the signal.
For the time being this is my fix. I'm wired to the player btw.
Before turning player on I'll go to hdmi 2 with blue screen. Then I'll change EDID to B since the startup screen is 4/60 and won't lock in with A. With B the startup screen goes to 1080p/60. I then start Blu ray and switch back to A. Jvc switches to 4K/24 and from there I can do anything outside playing a YouTube 4/60 video. Everything stays 8 bit. If I try to change deep color setting I'll go to black screen.

I'll do this for another week if no fix is available I'll send my player back.
Does this change my thoughts of the JVC?
Oh hell no Projector still rocks!

I think you could skip the step of changing EDID to B and back to A but just hitting play on your remote. Yes you'll be doing so blind, but I've found if you have a disc in the machine hitting play will start it up.

I'm having so many sync issues and even getting audio, I'm giving up for now and hoping for some firmware fixes. May just be a pipe dream to ever get this working.

If JVC pj owners who are having black screen problems with their Sammy UHD players wrote Samsung Tech Support for help, perhaps that would raise the priority for getting their developers to code a firmware fix. JVC needs to be working this issue too.
The squeaky wheel gets the grease...

Kevin, you're the man! Can I pop on over later this afternoon? Looks like almost a 1.5 drive. I would love to check out your system! I can bring over my UHD player but, without movies it might not be that exiciting. Maybe you could hit up a Best Buy and try to pick up a title. I had no luck around here, they don't have a clue as to what I was talking about. Is a flat white wall unity gain?

my guess is that something happened to the player after the first firmware update / power cycle.

I can still play all the UHD BD's fine so it stays for now and will wait to see if they update the firmware to fix the other areas.
Greetings,

My "problem solved" posting was a bit premature. Yes, the new cabling helped but there are still problems. I am continuing to test. This morning I was able to playback several 4K/60 videos from YouTube.

More later..

No he didn't. Can you explain to me what BT1886 is? A custom gamma curve perhaps?

FWIW,

As I'd mentioned earlier, my calibrator tried various 4K/UHD test signals to my RS600. He sent me a compatibility table of what the projector accepted from his AVLabs 4KTPG:

Resolution | Output Color Format | Output Color Depth

2160p60 | YCbCr420 | 8 bit
2160p59 | YCbCr420 | 8 bit

2160p30 | RGB | 8 bit, 10 bit, 12 bit
2160p30 | YCbCr444 | 8 bit, 10 bit, 12 bit
2160p30 | YCbCr422 | 8 bit, 10 bit, 12 bit

2160p24 | RGB | 8 bit, 10 bit, 12 bit
2160p24 | YCbCr444 | 8 bit, 10 bit, 12 bit
2160p24 | YCbCr422 | 8 bit, 10 bit, 12 bit

Question about upscaling

I am upscaling the 1080i signal from Directv to 4K with a Lumagen 2143, which is being "shifted" down by my 600. Would I be better off going straight 1080i to 1080p through the lumagen and skip all this up and down processing?


Any insight by a more knowledgeable perspective would be greatly appreciated!

It's interesting that the gamma (2.4), color checker, saturation ramps and lumenance ramps were all under dE 3 before external calibration. So I'm not sure all the fancy Lumagen gamma and color cube stuff is really necessary except to get the BT.1886 curve and play with 0 IRE to alleviate black crush. But I did it anyway.

Next I ran a gamma BT.1886 auto-cal using the Lumagen. After that I did a 5 pt Color Cube auto-cal. I re-measured the gamma after and it stayed good. then I set 0 IRE to .2 or .3 for all 3 colors. The BT.1886 and 0 IRE adjustments do help with black crush but still don't fully resolve the dimmest of details.

EDIT: All errors are dE 1 or less with the Lumagen. But, can you see that? Is it worth it?
Which workflow(s) are you using? With Enthusiast license, I've normally just gone straight to Color Cube (3D LUT) after doing Brightness/Contrast bits. Running AutoCal for 1D Ramp (greyscale) and 3D Color Cube LUT. When you say "tweaking" are you performing a 2 point greyscale and using the JVC's CMS to adjust gains/cuts prior to the autocal runs? That last bit about setting new IRE levels is new to me. What's the reason and what procedure did you use to achieve that?

Parenthetically, just replaced a Radiance XS with the new Pro and that made a surprising difference in performance even before introducing the RS500. Doing a full out 17 point calibration only took about 2 hours. That's a relief (figured it might take days).

JVC RS500 - Stewart Firehawk - Lumagen Radiance Pro - Anthem D2V - Revel Salon speakers - SV Sound SB13 Ultra sub - Tivo/Nvidia Shield TV/Panasonic UB900

I sent the following to Samsung Customer Support regarding the black screen problems with their player & the RS600:
---------------------
Samsung's UBD-K8500 UHD Blu-ray player needs a firmware update to work with my JVC DLA-RS600 projector. My RS600 displays no video when the UBD-K8500 is powered on until I load a movie. I believe that this is caused by the player's default video mode for its menu: 2160p/60 4:4:4. My JVC projector cannot display 2160p/60 4:4:4. Changing the player's startup menus to either 1080p or 2160p/24 4:2:0 would resolve this "black screen problem".

Samsung 4K Player Update
I am finally able to get it working.


Before I tried using HDMI directly and indirect and neither worked. But then I realized that HDMI going from avr to projector is different from the one from player to avr. So I switched the cable going from avr to projector to match with the one that is going from player to avr and Wallaaa. Everything worked. Netflix/Youtube everything. Then I used the HDMI cable that was coming from avr to porjector and disconnected it from avr and directly connected it to player by-passing avr and it didn't work. So following are my recommendations to make it work
1 - Do use avr in the chain
2 - Make sure the HDMI cables connecting the player to avr and from avr to projector are of same type.
3 - Use HDMI 1 on projector.
3 - My HDMI going from avr to projector is 15 feet long hence the length of hdmi being 6 feet is not required.
4 - Following is the HDMI I'm using. http://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=14196. It is an Active HDMI cable and costs only $20 for 15 feet. Save your money from all these expensive HDMI cables.
5 - Settings in Samsung: Everything is on Auto including Resolution

My impressions on 4K
Before I share my impressions, I'd like to point out that everything I play shows 4K resolution (3840P) with 8 bit. Samsung resolution is set to auto so I'm not sure why everything is being up-converted (including the 1080 movies) but here is the plus side. I like it. I like what Samsung is doing. More on in below.

First I played Netflix 4k Marco Polo. I wasn't blown away but yeah its good sharp image. Then I switched to YouTube and searched for "4k LG". I love LG demos. They are very colorful and they use black background. Played a few clips and realized that it looked sharp but dull colors. Hmmmmm. Went back to Samsung main screen and realized that it was kinda like shaking. When into settings and realized that Color wasn't set to Auto. As soon as I set it to Auto, everything stabilized. Then I went back into YouTube and started playing the clip. I just couldn't believe my eyes. I literally clapped my hands and started laughing out of joy. I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. Every next scene was like ohhh wowoww and then again oh wowoww. Ohhh no no no, I can't believe it. All LG 4K clips made my heart beat faster (seriously). I mean wooowwwwwwwww. This projector (RS500) is no joke. Everything was just so crystal clear. It made me feel like I'm looking at the tip of a sharp knife (if this makes any sense). My screen completely disappeared.

@zombie10k , I can play [email protected] with no problem. At first, I felt like the motion is a tad faster and I had to go into Blur menu and turn Enhance Motion to off. Then everything I played had Super Smooth motion. Like absolutely smooth.

Now back to the point that I mentioned earlier about having Samsung updating everything to 4k and me likee. Before I had issues and I mentioned it here as well that I see a lot jiggering with image here and there when camera spans. Well not anymore. I played The Hobbits and checked the scenes that were very noticeable. I can still see some but it is improved a lot. It is to the point that its not that much noticeable unless I am paying full attention to it. Also, the colors and everything just looks better. I don't know if its the up-conversion or change of HDMI cable but whatever it is, I love it.

Finally the bad parts. I spent a lot of time snaking the HDMI cables. Now they are useless as they are not working with Samsung. I don't think I'll snake another wire and will have to find another way. Also, I'll have to get a 25ft HDMI cable instead 15. Well this is not as bad as what I'm getting out of this player. What's worse is this remote control. Sorry, its not bad, ITS HORRIBLE. You have to stand right in-front of the player to make it respond to control. What was Samsung thinking. Really. Bringing first 4K player in the market with the worse control you can think of. Once I play, I just can't do anything when I'm sitting at MLP. Very annoying. I do have Harmony remove and hoping that I can use it with Samsung player???

I really want to play a 4K Blu-Ray but mine wont' arrive before March. @zombie10k , where did you get these 4K BluRay from? Also, any idea why everything I'm playing is 8 Bit? Please note that I didn't play any HDR since I don't have any. If its available online, please do let me know (thx).

Well so that's it from me. If you guys have any question, feel free to ask .

Through the good work of the AVS members here it has been determined that the information below supplied by Samsung Support is completely wrong.

A emitter/flasher can be used to control the K8500. The problem seems to be is that the IR receiver can be found in two different places: to the right of the USB port as shown on page 9 of the manual or to the left of the USB port halfway between it and the tray.

I cannot imagine what the Samsung Support person was trying to prove with his blatantly wrong information.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have most of my gear, including my source components, in a some racks behind a wall, no direct line of sight. I replaced my Samsung H6500 with the new K8500 last night and discovered it would not respond to the remote using the same Xantech emitter/flasher that worked with the H6500. It worked fine when I pointed it directly at the K8500.

I have now learned from Samsung support the following:

The player is not compatible with external Flasher. wrong!
The player receives the signals from the remote only when the remote control is in line of sight with the player's Remote Control Sensor.
wrong!
This is a design choice of the player. wrong!

Page 9 of the manual shows the location of a REMOTE CONTROL SENSOR, but this has nothing to do with using an IR emitter.

Inconceivable design choice to me. Can anyone suggest a workaround?

I have verified these through the Sammy UHD. I am getting 4k/24/12 and 4k/30/12 via netflix and 4k/60/8 via youtube. No UHD discs yet but blue ray's upscale to 4k/24/12.

Using 25ft BJC Passive cable to Sammy -> 7702MKII pass through -> JVC

I rail about remote controls all the time in my reviews for their poor design, but the Samsung remote is the absolute worst I have ever seen/used. I don't have big fingers and I can't seem to hit the "select" button without the cursor going up or down a click!!!

Enabling the "Deep Color" option switches the player from 8 bit color to 12 bit color. That's where the problems are (2160p/60 4:4:4 12 bit). If you stick with 8 bit you'll have fewer problems, but you won't be getting WCG.

Before I tried using HDMI directly and indirect and neither worked. But then I realized that HDMI going from avr to projector is different from the one from player to avr. So I switched the cable going from avr to projector to match with the one that is going from player to avr and Wallaaa. Everything worked. Netflix/Youtube everything. Then I used the HDMI cable that was coming from avr to porjector and disconnected it from avr and directly connected it to player by-passing avr and it didn't work. So following are my recommendations to make it work
1 - Do use avr in the chain
2 - Make sure the HDMI cables connecting the player to avr and from avr to projector are of same type.
3 - Use HDMI 1 on projector.
3 - My HDMI going from avr to projector is 15 feet long hence the length of hdmi being 6 feet is not required.
4 - Following is the HDMI I'm using. http://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=14196. It is an Active HDMI cable and costs only $20 for 15 feet. Save your money from all these expensive HDMI cables.
5 - Settings in Samsung: Everything is on Auto including Resolution

My impressions on 4K
Before I share my impressions, I'd like to point out that everything I play shows 4K resolution (3840P) with 8 bit. Samsung resolution is set to auto so I'm not sure why everything is being up-converted (including the 1080 movies) but here is the plus side. I like it. I like what Samsung is doing. More on in below.

First I played Netflix 4k Marco Polo. I wasn't blown away but yeah its good sharp image. Then I switched to YouTube and searched for "4k LG". I love LG demos. They are very colorful and they use black background. Played a few clips and realized that it looked sharp but dull colors. Hmmmmm. Went back to Samsung main screen and realized that it was kinda like shaking. When into settings and realized that Color wasn't set to Auto. As soon as I set it to Auto, everything stabilized. Then I went back into YouTube and started playing the clip. I just couldn't believe my eyes. I literally clapped my hands and started laughing out of joy. I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. Every next scene was like ohhh wowoww and then again oh wowoww. Ohhh no no no, I can't believe it. All LG 4K clips made my heart beat faster (seriously). I mean wooowwwwwwwww. This projector (RS500) is no joke. Everything was just so crystal clear. It made me feel like I'm looking at the tip of a sharp knife (if this makes any sense). My screen completely disappeared.

.

Your top comment is spot on - exactly how mine is working with the exception of BJC 25ft passive cable. Also agree with the 4k content, played the light show and animal demo's on youtube..I'm projecting on a dark black wall (carpet comes Monday, then screen goes up) and I also had a giggle, rub my hands together fit. Even probably getting 10 FTL on a 150in image, the detail and sharpness looks amazing. Even blu rays look better upscaled. Coming from a JVC RS2, RS55 and now the 500. My wife wanted to watch better call saul on a black wall, sitting in construction dust, on a cement floor because she loved the 4k image from netflix. We have a bright future ahead of us folks.

What about my other comment regarding color space?
We do not know enough as to calibration for UHD BD. My guess is that you will calibrate to DCI, but that is just a guess. DCI is not a consumer color space, but none of our displays can do Rec2020. We will have to wait and see. As more information becomes available, I will post.

Wow… really sorry to hear about this Ron. Hope JVC takes good care of you and you don't have to ship your BCM out for repair. Keep us updated on progress and good luck brutha!

Others that got this fix had gone through avr when somehow jump starts the HDMI on the jvc. My projector is over my head and anytime I go to 4K/60 I can hear the projector trying to lock into the signal.
For the time being this is my fix. I'm wired to the player btw.
Before turning player on I'll go to hdmi 2 with blue screen. Then I'll change EDID to B since the startup screen is 4/60 and won't lock in with A. With B the startup screen goes to 1080p/60. I then start Blu ray and switch back to A. Jvc switches to 4K/24 and from there I can do anything outside playing a YouTube 4/60 video. Everything stays 8 bit. If I try to change deep color setting I'll go to black screen.

I'll do this for another week if no fix is available I'll send my player back.
Does this change my thoughts of the JVC?
Oh hell no Projector still rocks!
Ron thinks that the Samsung is not putting out enough voltage for the HDMI cable and that makes sense, why going through an AVR would help the issue.https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-dig...l#post41520425

JVC did not get the Samsung player any earlier than you guys, but they have a couple now and are looking into the situation.

Can you provide the link of the cable you bought from to make sure I get the same cable? The one that is working for me comes only up to 15 ft. I need 25 feet and will try yours.

Calibrating to rec2020 saturations doesn't mean trying to reach rec2020 at 100% sat . It just means using the saturations of the container, as wide as the native gamut allows.

You should watch the Spectracal webinar I linked to earlier, it should clarify the idea.

WCG? What does it stand for? I do have Deep Color on Auto.

Light output and sharpness (eshift activated when zooming to 21:9) of the unut are so excellent that I prefer the picture w/o the lens!
I own an A-lens and those are my feelings as well. I prefer to zoom, especially with the convenience of lense memories: perfect picture every time. I only use my A-lens when I need the widest image I can get.

(Not to mention the slightly smaller non-A-lens images
have better contrast)
