no matter how good and short the connection is. If want your LS10000 to receive 4K content, you have to use your video source player, HDFury, or some other video processor to down-convert a full bandwith UHD signal to 4K @ 24fps and/or a lower chroma resolution like 4:2:2.
I've been using a 40' Celerity fiber-optic connection to my LS10000 for the last 3 years with zero problems (but its limited to 10.2 Gbps). Before that all HDMI cables I tried were a nightmare with frequent HDMI sync drops.
I think I'm just confused about the video aspect. The LS10500 can only do 10.2Gbps. 4K HDR 60fps 4:4:4 requires 18Gbps bandwidth which we cannot ever do with the LS10500.
So, I introduce an HMDI cable that is rated @ 18Gbps - what's the point of it if the LS10500 can't do it?
I introduce the HDFury Linker, which I have, so that I can down convert a full UHD signal to at best 4k @ 24fps, 4:2:2 - is that the best I can get and does it require 18Gbps rated HDMI cable. Also, what are the proper settings for the HDFury Linker with the LS10500. Using my 6040UB, it was easy because there is a sequence of steps (button presses) that would set it for my previous 6040UB. BTW, I got rid of my 6040UB because Epson gave me a full refund on it due to 3 failed units - power supply issue.
So, am I better off just leaving my old Audioquest Cinnamon cable (very old cable, not 18Gbps, 30ft but works) with or without the HDFury Linker. Or, am I better off using the CAT6/Binary B-540 with or without the HDFury Linker. Right now, I'm finding that switching sources takes an extremely long time to sync with the HDFury and/or the CAT6/B-540. Literally, I am waiting 20-30 seconds to catch audio first followed by picture. And, switching between sources then takes around 15 seconds or so to catch audio first followed by video. Way too long I would think. At least, longer than 6040UB from what I remember.
