I initially chose the Integral over the Linker because if the Android APP on my phone/tablet
for switching EDID 8<-> EDID 10, (HDR <->SDR) for use with my Panasonic UB900.
The Linker would have been a pain to run through my laptop GUI for every change.
I just noticed that listed on the Vertex page there is an Optional Bluetooth Dongle ($49)
Please tell me I don't tell me I need to buy that too in order to use my smartphone/tablet now?
I really don't want to spend another $50 to use a free app,
but I don't want to have to get up every time I need to access the Vertex info or make EDID change.
(or to access signal info on-screen)
I run my Integral After the AVR (Yamaha RX-A3050) and then a 40' run to my JVC
(Cheap High Speed Redmere Active cable from IOGear that sent 4K 24 HDR 4:4:412Bit with no issue)
The Integral would not work before the AVR (All short cables are from HDFury, bought the 4 pack)
The only Movie that stressed my 40' cable was Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk
that played 4k/60 4:2:0 10Bit on the JVC (4K60 4:2:2 12Bit on the OLED with HDFury short Cable)
Sometimes I had to power cycle my AVR to get a solid connection through the long cable run.
My other HDMI out from my AVR is a short 6' run to my LG OLED
When the JVC was turned off and the Integral was left on,
I could not get HDR to work on the OLED unless I turned the Integral off.
I'm guessing my AVR saw the Integral as an HDMI device that was not HDR compatible
If the JVC was not powered up (even if it was last set on the EDID for HDR on the JVC) ?
I never had any issues running the JVC and OLED simultaneously from the two HDMI outs from the Yamaha,
But both had to be in HDR or Both without, could not do one without the other.
(Obviously there was never a need to turn HDR off for the OLED or fool it to enable a dynamic iris
I'm guessing I wont want the Vertex before the AVR,
since I have two very different needs from the 2 HDMI outs of the AVR.
The question then becomes do I only want to use 1 HDMI out from the AVR to the Vertex,
and connect both displays to the Vertex instead, are there limitations doing that?
