Thank you for pointing out that there is a difference in the headers of the signal and the signal itself. (What is being referred to as the container)
I'm not trying to carry Dolby Vision here, (The x800 isn't Dolby Vision capable and server will be nor is the Integra (but it will be soon with a firmware update). What I would expect to be able to achieve is a signal that is 4k 24Hz, 4:4:4: 30bit. This, as best as I know would give me a 10 Bit non compressed image at 4K resolution and the correct (native) refresh.
P.S. I bought a Vertex (per your suggestion) and look forward to learning. I know I have a ton more to learn about this stuff...
Yes Ok, i answered about Dolby Vision because in your first post you wrote : "When I use my AppleTV 4k to watch a 4K HDR (Dolby Vision) Movie, My Integra reports the Input as "
For what i understand now, you should be fine with Linker or Vertex.
If what you are trying to do is to define how all 4K60 should get out or how all 4K24/25/30 should get out and have a device that will take any 4K60 or any 4K24/25/30 and always output what you have defined, then yes, both will work.

In this configuration the Roku does work, but I get a random bar of static flash along the bottom of the screen every 20-30 seconds. I didn't get a chance to see if switching inputs still requires me rebooting the linker. I can also remove the 3' HDMI cable and replace it with another 1' HDMI cable, but the 25' has to stay.
Would it be better if I move the Linker's location in the chain? For example...
Source->Reciver->1' HDMI->Linker->25' HDMI->HDMI Coupler->3' HDMI->PJ
I'm sorry, but please explain me why you cannot in this chain as you describe it below:
Source->Reciever->25' HDMI->HDMI coupler->3' HDMI->Linker
Disconnect the 3' HDMI going to HDMI coupler and connect to your source directly once you have moved it closer to PJ for testing ?
Also, don't use too short cable neither, recommended length for 600MHz is more than 6ft and less than 12ft.

Per Manni's instructions I have it last in the chain and all HDMI cables are the approved Monoprice ones. I run a 20' Monoprice hdmi HDR cable from hdcp 2.2 AVR, Linker, then 3' cable of the same brand. Panny UB900 player.
Linker is set to Edid 8. Thru, HDCP 1.4
Without the Linker the Panny Video status screen shows
3840x2160/24p HDR/BT.2020 YCBCr4:2:0/10bit
With the Linker the top line is the same but next line changes to
1080/24p SDR/BT.709 YCbr4:4:4/12bit
The good news is I the DI is working! HDMI handshake times are very similar to without the Linker but my picture is now very low resolution with major red tint.
Is this just because I have a 3' cable from Linker to the PJ or is there something else to look at?
Put HDCP on 2.2 (good post btw)
