I'm having a problem and I haven't been able to find it addressed here, I've searched on a few things but have had no luck so far, so sorry if I missed it. When I watch HDR video from Amazon, Netflix, etc., on my Nvidia Shield fed through my Oppo 203 to the 540 the projector sticks in a mode where it thinks it's receiving a different color space than it is once I leave HDR video. Whites are blown, flesh tones are horribly off, people's faces tend to have a black, splotchy appearance, other stuff like that. I have to switch inputs on either the Oppo or the 540 and then it gets back to the right mode.
I'm using the 203 to handle the HDR conversion. HDR Off, Target Luminance 300, HDR to SDR Mode 3. Pretty much all the other video settings on the Oppo are set to Auto as are the color space settings on the projector.
Whenever watching something from the Shield in the 540's Info page I see Color Space YUV and Colorimetry BT.2020. This doesn't change before, during, or after watching HDR. Now when I first was watching it tonight the 540 was showing the Color Space as YUV 12-bit until I cycled inputs, then it said YUV, I went back into another HDR video, exited, and it still said 12-bit, I cycled the input on the 540 and it fixed the appearance problem, and went back to YUV 12-bit. It seems as though changing the input on the JVC causes it to show YUV 12-bit, but changing the input on the Oppo causes it to show YUV. What it shows there doesn't seem to have any relevance to whether or not the problem occurs when leaving HDR, it always happens. Once it enters this problematic state the HDR settings menu on the Oppo looks as though it's receiving normal video from the Shield because the Luminance and HDR to SDR Mode are greyed out like normal, so I don't believe the Shield to be the problem. It's been doing this with the beta firmware and UDP20X-56-0224. The JVC version shows x12.1.
I've tried changing color space settings and the like when in this bad state, but I haven't found anything that works other than changing inputs.
I did put in a 4K blu-ray and then switched to a regular blu-ray and that works fine.
Any ideas what might be causing this and is there a fix?
