Nx5 Keeps losing mode settings
Hello - I’m new here and thrilled to find this thread! I have the NX5 in my dark cave HT with a Sony UBP-X1100ES player, Apple TV 4K, and Fios TV One as sources and 110” screen. The NX5 is fed from an Arcam AVR390 receiver. I have an issue that’s driving me nuts and some newbie questions.
I updated to the 3.10 firmware this week, and the results using adaptive hdr have been fantastic when used for 4K uhd movies on the Sony. More than half the time though, when switching to Fios, instead of Cinema picture mode for sdr, it’s carrying the adaptive hdr settings, causing the red fleshtones, etc, so I have to keep resetting to cinema. The vice-versa also happens sometimes - switching from Fios to the Sony results in Cinema mode even though the same 4K uhd disc is playing. I do have the hdr10 Auto Select set to frame adapt hdr. Also have these intermittent switching issues going to/from Apple TV.
I’ve read this issue is impacting others, but perhaps not as frequently as I’m seeing it. Are there any other settings to employ to minimize this or other workarounds? Your advice/experience appreciated.
My next newbie question - is the auto switching for hdr and sdr settings supposed to be operational for each individual source? So if it’s sdr Blu-ray on the Sony I’ll get Cinema and if 4K uhd, adaptive hdr? I assume so, if it’s working right, but not 100% sure. Or is it hopefully not set by source, which would mean if set to adaptive for the Sony and a sdr disc is played, I have to manually switch to Cinema? That would be painful!
Last newbie question- hdr hd programming streamed from Apple TV is way too bright with highlights washed out when using adaptive hdr; looks much better with HDR10 picture mode. Any way to automatically set things so hd programs are in hdr10 and 4K streamed content is adaptive hdr, or is this going to require manual adjustments?
Thanks in advance - your help appreciated!
