That will get you SDR Rec2020 422 12 Bit as the Lumagen sends the correct no-HDR EDID back to the player.

My concern is the Colour Bit Depth only, which the player is reporting being sent at 12 Bits, but the PJ is reporting being 8 Bits.
If it's like the XE, you can just hit enter with no menus showing, and it will take you through the status/debug screens and show you input and output formats.

Yes, its the same with the Pro, but I can't see colour bit depth listed in there, unless I'm completely missing it (which is quiet possible).

Beta 052116- Fix for bad fan behavior and overheating. After this update completes---make sure it's complete---unplug power for 5 seconds, replug it and then power up. The fan controller chip only resets with power removed. Please continue giving us your detailed feedback on issues via email at [email protected] .
Update time ~1 minutes @230k from previous firmware

Thanx Mark,

i absolute agree the SDR 4k picture is better so far.
But I think what 2020 and HDR later, was the reason for you to buy the pro ?
I was ws hoping you can report a solution with the Fury in use to remove HDR and get a now faded 4k SDR 2020 Picture work !

If you check you will see that when playing a HDR Blu Ray using the Samsung K8500, the Pro 444x will only output SDR709 [email protected] Not HDR2020.

For me the manual fan speed of 1 to 10 work well. I set the fan on 8, my chip stayed about 60 C. There was no bug in the manual temp fan setting

Yes the Pro 444x will output SDR709 2160 8 bit, but not HDR2020 or SDR2020.

Both Jim and Pat know about this issue.
The 05/12 beta update only works for the Panasonic 4K Blu Ray player that is not currently being sold for zone A/USA/Canada.

Yes, you can. Download the older firmware and install it. But I would try a boot mode update first with the newest firmware. That helps sometimes.

As far as I remember, that's a "problem" with the K8500, because you cannot deactivate HDR. When the K8500 sees no HDR (the Radiance PRO cannot pass-through HDR at the moment), it deactivates BT.2020 and also HDR.

Well, that's not an issue. That's because of the fact that the K8500 can only output BT.2020 AND HDR. The UB900 can deactivate HDR, but still outputs BT.2020.

Well, it is a issue when you can't use the very high end Pro 444x to play/process a HDR 4K Blu Ray.
Particularly if your are using a 3DLUT calibration for BT.2020.

As far as outputting SDR709 2160 at 8 bits, there never was a issue. The issue is inputting/outputting SDR/HDR BT.2020.

I am able to get the Pro to force input SDR2020 (as reported by the Pro), But no SDR2020 out only SDR709.

As for HDMI cable, I use the BJC Belden Series-FE HDMI Cables (6' to 8') with NP.
It is interesting what you say about the Redmere 10.2 Gbps cable. I got a few of those cables when I got the K8500, I sent them back.

Well, the Radiance Pro cannot pass-through HDR at the moment, but BT.2020 ... and YES ... only with the UB900. It has never been a secret, that the firmware of the PRO must support HDR AND BT.2020 first, to do this. And yes: I would also like to use my 4446 with my K10A and LightSpace ... but when you really want this and have no time to wait until end of July, you must use the HD Fury integral for injecting HDR

I have already tried to explain it: buy the UB900 ... there you can deactivate HDR independant from BT.2020. Unfortunately it's not possible with the K8500 ... but that's not the problem of Lumagen ... it's the problem of the "stupid" design of the K8500.

Well, the 10.2 Gbps Redmere cables do NOT work with the K8500, when I use them without the Radiance PRO 4446. But WITH the Radiance PRO 4446 it's possible. The reason is very easy: the PRO uses enough current on its output, the K8500 not. By the way: I know many peoples who use the Monoprice Cabernet cables with 30, 40 and 50feet ... DIRECTLY with the K8500 and 4k without any problems!

Yes I understand all about the Pro's limitations and the "stupid" design of the K8500.
Non the less I can get the Pro to except input SDR2020 from the K8500, but still the Pro will not output SDR2020 even @24FPS /8bits. Why can the Pro except SDR2020 from the "stupid" K8500 but it is not able to output SDR2020??
imho, if a processor can except input it should be able to output the same, unless there is a issue with the processors firmware or hardware. In the case of the Pro outputting SDR2020 at 24fps/8bit is not a hardware issue.

The UB900 is not being sold here in the States or Canada. Also I have read the UB900 is region B, as you know here in the USA we use region A. Plus the power conversion from Uk to USA. So for those of us that live in the USA buying UB900 is not a option.

I can see exactly the same there with my 4446, the K8500 and the JVC-X7000: 2020 on the input, but not on the output. As far as I understood Jim, you MUST be able to deactivate HDR to pass-through the 2020-signal at the moment. I think you can do this with a HD Fury Integral.

Yes, I also think you have to live with another region code at least for BDs/DVDs. Only UHDs will be region free. The power conversion is not really a problem, because all manufacturers use a voltage range from 100 to 240 volts.
I decided for the K8500, because the UB900 produces black crush with my X7000.

This is working.
I would try a boot mode update with the newest firmware. It's working fine for me.

Which projector do you use? With HDCP 2.2?

What settings on the K8500 are you using to see BT2020 on input? With mine I can only see 2160p 444-SDR 709 input. Could you show a screenshot of the info screen? Thanks.

Look at the tip sheet PDF that is included in the zip of any update. It's on page 3 of the PDF.

Never did one before until a few months ago. Worked really easy for me.

Beta 052516- Added input colorspace to test pattern mode command in the menu under Other: Test Pattern: Test Mode as well as corrections to the test pattern mode function. Bugfix for fan turnoff if Auto power-on was enabled---if you were using this or are not sure then you should remove power after completion of update before restarting. Bugfix for proper function of settings in menu under Other: OnOff Setup. Bugfix for correct checkmarks on CMS's after modifying Output Setup. Bugfix for sometimes using incorrect CMS color decoder, black and white settings. Bugfix to avoid corrupting a test pattern if the active but undisplayed source turns off or changes modes. Added rs232 command to set test pattern mode with input colorspace, ZY533ICSDM. The 'I' field is the input colorspace with legal values of 1 or 2 corresponding to Rec709 or Rec2020 (for further information on the other fields in this command see the ZY532 command in Tech Tip 11). Added rs232 command ZQI50 to to query Rec2020 support on the display connected to main video output (4 on 44XX and 2 on 42XX). ZQI50 replies with 'Y' or 'N'. Expanded rs232 command, ZY46, to handle output colorspace as well as pixel format. Usage is ZY46FC where 'F' is pixel format as described in Tech Tip 11 and 'C' (legal value 0-3) sets the current CMS output colorspace to Auto,601,709 or 2020 respectively. Other small bugfixes and improvements. Please continue giving us your detailed feedback on issues via email at [email protected] .
Update time ~5 minutes @230k from previous firmware

The Pro can accept Rec 2020 as has been mentioned. Some say they can't get the Pro to output Rec 2020 info frame flag, but we know this works with the Sony TV we have with the Radiance Pro CMS color mode as "Auto" mode. So there is likely a compatibility issue with these other devices.

The CMS now has a color space setting. With the new "Auto" setting, if the display/projector EDID reports Rec 2020, the CMS "Auto" should output the Rec 2020 info frame if the source is Rec 2020. So this may mean we are not getting the Rec 2020 EDID information from the projector to know we can send Rec 2020.

Two things to try:

1) Set the CMS mode for the CMS that is selected for Rec 2020 source to "2020". This should force the Rec 2020 info frame flags in the output, and then the TV/projector should report Rec 2020.

2) If the "2020" CMS mode gets the TV/Projector to report it is getting Rec 2020 (or even if not) we would like to ask that you email [email protected] pictures off the EDID information from the TV/Projector (see below). This will help us make sure we can parse the EDID and extract the Rec 2020 if the EDID is different than expected.

If you have a Rec 2020 TV/projector and it is not working with the Pro Rec 2020, you can bring up the EDID info as follows:

If you have a 444X, with the TV/projector on Output 4:

Press "menu 0909" for first 128 bytes and take a picture, press "menu 0909" again to get 2nd 128 bytes and take a picture.

If you have a 424X, with the TV/projector on Output 2:

Press "menu 0907" for first 128 bytes and take a picture, press "menu 0907" again to get 2nd 128 bytes and take a picture.

Then email the photos to [email protected] and include as much detail about your system as you can, but at least the source device and the TV/projector model.

Are you talking about 052516 firmware.
If so, we first need a fix so the Pro 4444 can get a stable connection from the Sansung K8500.
With firmware 052516 the K8500 is basically unusable.
If you roll back the firemware to 052116, then there is a stable connection with the K8500.,

The features in question are the same in 052116 and 052516.

There is an issue in 052516 for some units. Looks to be an FPGA timing issue. The FPGA tools are not perfect and sometimes we get a reported good timing for an FPGA design that is not as good as the tools say it is.

We will fix 052516 issue in the next release. In the mean time you can do the Rec 2020 testing with 052116.

Good to hear, thanks.

I just want to be sure the Pro's triplet patterns and CMS for 3DLUT's are working as they should.

Saw that there was some updates with triplet patterns and CMS in the 052516.

For Rec 2020 with 052116, you can use the patterns for Rec 2020 but make sure the source is Rec 2020 so the hardware does the right thing.

With 052516 the source does not need to be Rec 2020 mode to calibrate for Rec 2020, since the new commands allow the test patterns to be in Rec 2020 mode even if the source is Rec 709. NOTE: The calibration software programs do not have this new feature in yet, so probably still easiest if the source is Rec 2020 for now anyway.

New Owner 4440

Just picked up the 4440 , have a huge learning curve ahead of me for calibration but first just want to plug and play for a while, get use to the remote and other features.

For reference I have a Sony VW600ES , Oppo 103D and Denon X5200 in the chain . Since the X5200 is not compliant I'm running the Oppo and other devices through the Denon, into the Lumagen and then to the projector. Projector is on line out 4 as instructed .

I turned off all processing on the Oppo and Denon, the VW600 also does not do the scaling, I've been trying to do that through the Lumagen. Oh, and I mostly watch movies only and have a anamorphic lens in front of the Lumagen most of the time.

Checkingthe lumagen output it shows 1080 in and 4K out, I assume the no-ring scaling is going on. Problem is I am seeing edge artifacts on text and on other objects that I have never seen before. I also do not believe the stretch is being done properly , it looks wider. I tried setting 16:9 but cannot figure out how to stretch now, the menu is still quite confusing to me at this point.

Anyway, just want to get the stretch process working first and then start playing with other features later. Right now I've taken a step backwards, I'm sure it won't take long to put this back on track.

Dedicated Theater: Sony VPL VW 885ES , Panamorph DCR & ISCO III L Anamorphic Lens, Draper TecVision XT1800X Screen, 2.40:1 134" diagonal curved , Denon AVR-X8500 , 9.2.6 Atmos, Panasonic UB900, Oppo 203, Lumagen Pro 4440 , (3) Paradigm CI Elite E7-L+C+R fronts, , (2) CI Pro P80-IW Rear, (2) Paradigm SA-ADP In-wall Surround, (6) SIG-1.5R-30 v.3 In-Ceiling, Subwoofers: (2) SVS SB-16 Ultra , SVS PC13-Ultra .

To be honest, rec.2020 and HDR updates don't excite me. These are expected features, nothing special. The product is still beta which means any promised feature delivered before alpha isn't late. I am more excited about what other suprise features we are going to get from the pro after it hits alpha.

UHD, for me, is the big missing bit of my setup's puzzle... am having to bypass the Pro entirely if I want to see the sources in their full glory... and that pressure is only set to increase. The only thing I really need otherwise, right now, is better video deinterlacing.

100% agreement, especially with the video deinterlacing and the current artifacts!!!

In all honesty I do not know. I'll have a look at this tonight and edit the post later. I would have assumed this to be auto based on the input.

I thought you bought a VW5000 but come to think about it you only just had the 1000 repaired . You'll have faux HDR with the Pro soon though, should get you
by until the next purchase. That's my plan if I keep the VW500 for a while .

I have two Pros. The 2nd is driving my UHD OLED TV, so that's the one that needs HDR now... The projector is the Sony 1000, yes, so hoping for faux-HDR on there via the Pro at some stage.
