What settings do I use in the Vertex? Thank you.
You cannot do frame rate conversion so 1080p60 > 4K30 won't work.
You can do 1080p24/25/30 > 4K24/25/30
To do that, IN SCALER SECTION UPSCALE you set 1080p30 to > 4K30, you put the max chroma and color depth your display support (apparently you can put the max or leave as follow)
If you want 4K24 to pass thru, then in scaler section you let all 4K30 as FOLLLOW and it will pass thru.

Specifically with the Apple TV 4k was hoping the Vertex would just report back that the display was 4k and HDR supported. I think part of the issue is the ATV doing its auto detection of the display and somehow with the Vertex inline it's not liking something.
From Vertex to JVC, i just wanted it to always send a 4k signal so the JVC wouldn't constantly resync.
That's what i was hoping for at least
You cannot avoid hdmi resync with content dependent sources, if source keep changing the resolution based on the content its playing, then hdmi resync will be performed.
To report that 4K and HDR are supported just use a custom EDID or you can copy SINK EDID and it will be the exact same one as your connected SINK.

I agree if seems like a power issue, if I understand correctly the Vertex never uses more than 5V at 2.5 Amps correct?
I'm going to bring home an Anker 2 Amp charger, and Samsung Phone cable from work and test with that tomorrow.
Max is not even 5v1.5A.
Please do this last test, if no helps, we will replace your unit and send return label so we can study the issue on your current unit. I'm very sorry you are having this issue, we will find out.

Now it is persistent, my nvidia shield and Samsung player are having screen flicker and eventually showing a static noise screen. I've updated to the latest firmware hoping it would help. It did not.
I have tried this with multiple input resolutions and bit depths. I also just tried to hook up my HTPC for the first time in several days with the same results. 1080p @24hz input (111mhz i believe).
Device ==> Dennon ==> VERTEX ==> JVC Projector
Removing the VERTEX clears the issue up.
I've attached a file.
The file you attached is an EDID file, please export your config using GUI>FILE>EXPORT and attach the vertexconfig.txt that get created in the GUI directory once the export process is completed.
Also confirm HDMI cable length

From looking at the controls, it looks like you can only define the top/left and bottom/right corners of a single mask rectangle. In addition you can also adjust the translucency of the black rectangle.
Now most TV stations place their logos in different positions and different sizes. Some even have logos in multiple positions (for example: top/left and bottom/right). Is there going to be a way to store multiple masks (preferably up to 4 for each screen corner) to deal with multiple logos and also different positions of logos? When changing channels, it doesn't seem practical to manually adjust all the parameters of the mask each time through the Android app or computer USB. Ideally, it would be great if you could store several mask definitions and then quickly cycle between them using IR remote control. Is there enough memory on the Vertex to make this possible? Also instead of translucency, maybe also offer a solid gray color option where you can adjust the gray brightness from black to white.
How much memory is actually in the Vertex? Would it ever be possible to upload a custom pixel mask image (not just simple rectangle) that could be overlaid on top of the signal? Even a 1-bit image with adjustable brightness or translucency might be useful.
With the current simple mask settings, is there any way to adjust them purely through IR or is the BT adapter pretty much required if you don't have a computer nearby?
We already said that we will try to add more Mask. Currently fixing some customers issues is our priority so such additions will come later more likely.
Yes it might be possible to upload graphics and display patterns, we already mentioned that too, but as said before, priority atm is getting everyone working perfectly first.
If you read a few pages back i think there is someone actually doing iRule settings so that RS232 commands for MASK get send based on the TV channel he is selecting (if i understand right what he is trying to do)
