Okay I wanted to wait until the link for the new f/w is available but I'm going to post about this now to explain how to set it up.
First, it's advised if at all possible to put the linker last in the chain, just before the display. It might work in other positions, but you might cause issues because none of the devices after it will know what the content is. They will all think it's SDR. That's what we want for the display, but not necessary for other devices in the chain.
As explained earlier, the Panny doesn't work if the Integral or Linker is placed between it and the AVR.
So to start with, please try with the linker last. When it works, try to move it wherever you want, but only if you have a good reason.
The only option to enable on the Linker if you don't need any of its other features is the disable HDR feature. You check this box and then you can forget about it.
[EDIT: if you use the linker on its own, you have to select EDID 8 to tell the player that the display supports HDR when playing HDR content, otherwise the player will not send HDR and will revert to SDR rec-709. You will probably need to select another custom EDID, or the SINK EDID or default EDID, when playing non-HDR content]
[EDIT: if you know you have 18gb/s HDMI Premium certified cables, you can try EDID 2 as a set and forget option, which might work for everything, but it will not work with non-optimal cables. In that case, EDID 8 for HDR is a safer option].
[EDIT: if you have an Integral as well,]it doesn't really matter which EDID the Linker is set to as long as it's after the Integral in the chain, but set it to Sink EDID so it works wherever it's placed.]
[EDIT: if your player doesn't display its menus in HDR, you might need to select the default EDID, a custom EDID or SINK EDID (or possibly EDID 2 if you're sure you have good cables) to get a stable picture when you stop playback. I do this automatically with the Integral and iRule, and the Panny displays its menus in HDR, so I haven't noticed any instability myself].
You need to have the latest f/w, 019 or more recent, which will be available anytime. [EDIT 02-18-17: the f/w019 is now available for download from HD Fury's website].
You can use the Linker to change EDID when needed, either manually through the GUI on the PC or, if you get the BT dongle, with the iOS / Android app. This should ship shortly.
Then the Integral (only if you have one / need one for IP/IR remote control, you don't need one per se to disable the HDR metadata). You should use bottom in / top out if you have an old version, top in top out (preferably) if you have the most recent one (with the faster BT). Also make sure you're using the last f/w. If you have both the Linker and the Integral, set the linker to Disable HDR and forget about it, and use the Integral to change EDID, locally or remotely, using BT with the iOS / Android app, or IR (and IP2IR with iRule). The Integral adds flexibility and comfort, but it's not necessary.
I advise putting the Integral (if present) after the AVR, before the linker, if at all possible. So you have: source > AVR > Integral > Linker
Make sure the source is set to 4K resolution, not auto. I had the Panny set to auto (so it would switch to 1080p when I use my Dell PC monitor on HDMI 2) but while it works fine with only the Linker or Only the Integral, when both are connected they can get in an endless HDMI sync loop. So set the resolution to 4K on the source, if at all possible, at least if you have both the Linker and the Integral. Other than that, there is nothing to do with the source because it will still believe it's connected to an HDR display, as normal, and should send the full HDR BT2020 content.
I haven't checked this with any other display, but it should work the same way, so could allow to bypass a non optimal HDR implementation. There is nothing to do in the JVC, just select your HDR user mode, select BT2020 and your custom gamma curve (you can even select Gamma D if you want to) and enjoy. No forced Gamma D, DI enabled (more on this later).
That's about it.
If you have any questions when you try to get it to work, please post all your questions in the HD Fury Linker thread here https://www.avsforum.com/forum/37-vid...ry-linker.html
, especially if they are not specific to the disabling HDR feature we can use with the JVC, otherwise this thread will become unmanageable. HDFury (Ken) is super responsive, super helpful, he knows their products inside out and he knows what we are doing as we developped it together, so he'll be the best port of call for support for this if you have any issue when following this guide and it doesn't work.
