So the JVC macros have been a godsend and seem to work great.

Looking at all the custom curves for 4K nit, 2K nit, 1k nit, and HLG etc... and the macro capabilities, it seems that the JVC PJ (or at least my RS500) is the limiting factor as it can only hold 3 custom gamma curves at a time.

Am I missing anything (or maybe the newer PJs have more custom gamma slots?) or can the PJ only hold 3 gamma curves and you have to manually import as needed?

You do need to make a choice between HDR and other formats.

If you don't care about HLG (many don't as there is little to no content yet in most countries), then you can have granularity and use up to three custom gamma slots for HDR10, i.e. 1100nits, 2200nits and 4000nits.

But you can also use just one or two, that works fine. For example, I use automatic mode with 2 slots for HDR10 (1100 and 4000nits) and one slot for HLG BT2020.

You could just as well use a single universal curve, provided it is well-designed, clipping at 4000nits or 2200nits or even 3000nits for HDR10, depending on how much brightness you can squeeze out of your set-up, and have one curve for HLG BT2020 and one for something else.

The three curves for HDR10 is a luxury, it's really not needed.

Although it would be nice to have more custom gamma slots (no, newer models don't have more), the real limitation is your calibration abilities.

I could very happily survive with a single well-designed 4000nits curve, or even hard clip a bit lower than that if I needed the slots for something else.

I only keep the HLG slot for testing, I have zero content I want to watch in HLG at the moment but I find having it handy more useful than a third HDR10 curve at 2200nits.

I don't have the 2 sources direct to the vertex because I cannot get them to reliably change. I think this has to do with the fact that the appleTV doesn't truly "turn off" so the vertex isn't seeing a change?


Ok, please update to 1.30.1.30, then you will lock icon and be able to visually see once it's removed.


We will have an update to switch input based on some special trick for such sources in the future (at least, it's on todo list)

Black screen and audio dropouts

Have a new Vertex. Trying to watch amazon on the PS4 Pro or play games is impossible. Multiple black screens and audio dropouts. Sometimes stays stable for a few minutes then goes black or audio drops out. Have HDMI cable from PS4 Pro to vertex then simultaneously output HDMI TO Sony receiver and othe output to Epson 5040ub projector. I had to take the Vertex out of the loop to go back to a stable watchable experience. Replaced my HDMI cable with a brand new 18Gb/sec Monoprice HDMI cable but it is even worse with the new cable. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated because the ability to force 4K into the PS4 Pro is nice whenI get fleeting stretches of stable picture and audio.

OK - Understood. I'm a little new to the custom curves party so I appreciate the clarification and practical application guidelines.

Thanks for all your work and help on the JVC and HDFury (and I'm sure other) fronts - your expertise and time has helped quite a few of us.

Just update to latest firmware and then remove lock icon as explained on first post and you will be fine.

Question for Vertex owners....

I have a Linker, which works well with my JVC projector and blu ray player, but often defaults my DirecTV resolution to 480p, which requires a mess of moves to get it back to 720p and 1080i.

I'm considering stepping up to the Vertex in hopes of resolving that problem.

Anyone else experience this and solve it with the Vertex?

Thanks.

Few questions from new owner:

1. Is it possible to downgrade firmware if I need so, later on?

2. from which firmware I can see Max CLL/ FALL data?

3. where I can see firmware changelogs for all of firmwares?

So, I should inform that Nvidia Shield (6.3) doesn`t send Max CLL/ FALL data.
himedia in same setup have no such problem. bug of Shield, one more shame on Nvidia.

That all depends where the content comes from. There is no metadata available separately on HDR content from youtube for ex. (explained in previous pages)

Question on HLG HDR for DirecTV 4K Vertex users

Attention DirecTV 4K Vertex users - I have a question for you please... When you are viewing a native 4K channel broadcast in HLG, such as the Masters that was HDR HLG (and whatever else may be known to be broadcast in HLG), what does the Vertex show in the OSD info for the HDR info, which is in the second line of the OSD output, starting with RX-HDR? Thanks!

Himedia and Shield doesn`t support HDR from Youtube.
I use HDD for HDR content in both cases. So, it is Shield or mixed Vertex/Shield bug.

I took the plunge to upgrade my Linker to the Vertex in hopes of solving my resolution issues DirecTV. A bit of processing overkill, but I want that problem solved, and I still want my DI to work with HDR on my JVC rs620.

The issue is that my DirecTV C61 keeps defaulting to 480p and won't allow me to check the 720p and 1080i boxes thereafter. I have to reset the receiver, then reset everything, but it doesn't stick. Within days, he defaults back to 480p again. Without the Linker, my HDR doesn't work with my auto iris.

So the Vertex it is. Hope that does the trick.

Advice please.

So, I set the EDID to 11 and disable the HDR metadata as I did with the Linker. Is there anything else I can take advantage of that isn't being handled by my player and projector (professinally calibrated by Chad B)?

Then I guess it depends the player and please leave Vertex out of equation, you can inject custom HDR with it, thus solving the shield problem you reported forever, it's doesn't bring problem, just new solutions

Just follow first post and remove lock icon, use autoscaling and custom default edid, that's all you need to do to get working. (and yes disable HDR for your use case)
If you have long cable at output, you need our bigger PSU.

Doesn't it come with three plugs? You're saying I need to use the biggest one?

Thanks for the response.

It comes with default power supply that you have selected when ordering.
What I'm saying is that you might need to purchase our UNIVESAL POWER SUPPLY in case you have long cable in your setup or active cables non-powered by their own power supply.

I've never had an issue with my Linker in that regard with my 25 foot cable. The Linker works great with my Panasonic UB900 UHD player. The issue is with maintaining resolution with the DirecTV genie.

Would the power supply be the cause of the DirecTV issue? It seems it would also cause issues with the blu ray player, too, if that were the case.

I thought it might be the HDMI cable quality between the genie and AVR, but there's no issue when I take the Linker out of the chain.

It all depends where the long cable is, if it's after an AVR and before HDfury, then it's usually fine. (you are not giving enough details about your video path to give exact answer)
Anyway, that was general recommendation. you can still wait to have it in system and tested before concluding.

Anyway, that was general recommendation. you can still wait to have it in system and tested before concluding.
Here's my current chain:

DirecTV C61/Panny ub900 > two 3-foot HDMIs > Anthem preamp > 25-foot HDMI > Linker > 3-foot HDMI > JVC projector

I'm changing the 3-foot HDMI between the Linker and projector to a 6-inch HDMI, then moving tha 3 foot HDMI (high quality) in between my DirecTV C61 and the Anthem.

So it will be...

DirecTV C61/Panny ub900 > two 3-foot HDMIs (one improved) > Anthem preamp > 25-foot HDMI > Vertex > 6-inch HDMI > JVC projector

Video: JVC RS620/X9500 projector, Stewart ST130 screen, Panasonic ub820 UHD player
Audio: Anthem AVM60 preamp, Anthem MCA525 amp, B&K Reference 125.7 amp
Subs: dual SVS PC-12 cylinders
Speakers: RBH SV-661R and SV-661CR fronts, Jamo 626k4 side/rear surrounds, DefTech DI6.5R heights

Within days, he defaults back to 480p again. Without the Linker, my HDR doesn't work with my auto iris.

So the Vertex it is. Hope that does the trick.

Advice please.

So, I set the EDID to 11 and disable the HDR metadata as I did with the Linker. Is there anything else I can take advantage of that isn't being handled by my player and projector (professinally calibrated by Chad B)?
I do not have DirecTV but have been following some of the threads. I have seen other people report the same or very similar issue and supposedly it is a known issue, at least known within the AVS community. Have you checked with others in the different thread here to see if its the same issue as you and how they solved it? In what way might the Vertex be able to help you solve this? I am thinking about getting DirecTV so I'm very interested in how this plays out and what you find. Please let me know.

What thread are you referring to? The Linker thread?

Hey guys so I just hooked my vertex up. I have a Denon receiver and I'm running an epson 5040ub projector. I have visual and what not, but in my PS4 when I go to turn on hdr it says your TV does not support hdr. What am I missing? Thanks in advance

That way should work fine but in case of problem, you know the solution is to add stronger PSU (5.25V vs 5V)

All depends your Denon specs. what is the exact model ?


Assuming it's HDCP2.2 and 4K60 4:4:4 and assuming you have cables between 6ft and 12ft


Then you can do SOURCES > AVR > VERTEX > UB


In this case, UB at TOP OUTPUT, Vertex SCALE slide switch on autoscaling and EDID slide switch on CUSTOM EDID and you should be good (if there is lock icon on VERTEX OLED you must remove it, read first post)

I don't think shield can play HLG (neither DV), try chromecast.

Maestro: 4I/4O +4K HDR over HDBT +Autoswitch any sources +HDMI/ARC/eARC sound to AVR input +webserver. [Won Best Product Award]
Diva: 4I/3O +Ambient Light +Lag Tester +4K HDR > 1080p SDR +HDMI/ARC/eARC sound to AVR input +autoswitch +webserver.
Vertex2: 4I/3O +Autoswitch any sources +HDMI/ARC/eARC sound to AVR input +webserver.

HD, here's what I have going on. My avr is a Denon AVR-S910W. So I updated my epson firmware, I have ps4 on now and my projector is saying in the info color depth 8 bit 4:2:0, color format bt.709 sdr

See I haven't seen hdr yet so I'm not sure exactly how much different it'll look.. But I'll say this I couldn't switch to hdr on my PS4 prior to adding the vertex, I'd get a purple screen before so that is a positive.

Let me know of I can supply you with more info to see if we are close here

Actually strike that... I think I'm good good to go. Hdr wasn't flipped on in God of war settings and looks like I finally have it, awesome.. Thanks for the help man.

Also one last question, is there any way to remove the green info panels that come up when switching sources etc?

@HDfury - When I play HLG HDR demo clips from the UB900, the Vertex does appear to correctly identify them as this: HDR RX-HLG BT.2100-0 LUM 0/0 0000maxCLL/FALL. In that case, do you know what EOTF flag is set in the recording, which translates to this? IOW, what codes (EOTF or otherwise) are in the signal that Vertex picks up on and tells it that it is HLG)?
