To make sure Linker is set to downscale to 1080p, you can use quick preset (usermanual p.11). HOLD RST and press INP 6 times. EDID slide on CUSTOM.

Hi HDFury,

Finally got around in getting started on my Ambilight solution from a 4k60 source (AppleTV) that needs to be stripped down to 1080p and without HDR for the Ambilight system to correctly receive the signal. I have followed your steps as instructed but somehow, I can't get rid of the HDR signal through the settings. Screenshots attached. Would be great to get your input on these points. The very last screenshot just shows a a simple 4k60p Non-HDR setup while the first pictures for testing purposes are 1080p HDR signals. The problem obviously persists with 4k60p HDR signals.

How do I setup the LS10500 Epson projector with the HDFury Linker. Is there a preset sequence like there is with the 6040UB?

No current HDfury device can convert HDR to SDR.

This is not about converting HDR to SDR but about simply 'stripping-out' the HDR signal. HDFury, I as per my post above, would be great to get your advise on the attached settings.

Claw is right, you can strip out the HDR metadata so the display attached won't try to go in HDR mode but if INPUT is HDR then output is HDR (with or without HDR metadata).
So you need HDR to SDR converter if your issue is that ambientlight color are not accurate when content is HDR. If issue is something else, try to explain better please.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

You just need to know it's max specs and then use quick preset matching these max specs.


If you are lost, just post link to display usermanual in pdf and i'll tell you the max specs and which Linker quick preset can match it.

I'm using a linker with my Epson 6040 projector. I am able to get 4k HDR Netflix and YouTube from a Roku Premiere+ as well as UHD video from a Panasonic UB900 bluray player and standard 1080p video from a TiVo Premiere all through an Anthem MRX720 receiver.

My only issue is that most of the time when I start up my system, I get a blank screen. Only by unplugging power to the Linker and then plugging power back in do I get an image. I then seem to be able to switch between sources successfully most of the time. Is there a particular startup sequence that is needed to make sure the Linker syncs successfully every time?

Thanks - so, to remove HDR metadata I simply toggle the 'Remove HDR' box on the 'Custom HDR Injection' tab? Will check how accurate the colors are once the lights are all set up and if my unit (Dreamscreen HD) can actually read an incoming downscaled 1080p HDR signal. Thanks again for the quick responses, everyone!

Please first confirm the FW in use and if you can provide GUI screenshot of your settings, thanx.

If you have a video grabber not HDR compatible at the Linker output, you do not need to disable HDR metadata, because HDR metadata will be lost anyway if the device is not HDR compatible, so having Linker removing HDR metadata or having non HDR equipment at output is equal in your case.

Pretty strange data in this manual, it looks like HDR is only 4K24 4:2:2 12b (processed at 10b by PJ) but it seems that PJ can accept up to 4K60 4:4:4 8b. Makes little sense but that seems to be what the manual is reporting.


So please confirm what is your use case, source and purpose of Linker in the setup, if you want to target HDR as much as you can or if you have other goals/needs.

Here is what you can try, see if one give better results:


On FW0.25 try with HDCP2.2 instead of 1.4
If no go, try FW0.23 with HDCP1.4 and 2.2


Total 3 options, one should give you better results.


PS: if 1.4 is mandatory in your system cause of video path and equipment in it, please confirm the video/signal path.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

Targeting best performance with HDR using the linker and the LS10500. So, what settings should I set it to then in comparison to my previous 6040UB.

I have the LS10500 now and I notice that starting it and switching inputs take a long time before the picutre actually shows. I hear the audio sometimes 5 to 8 seconds before the picture locks in. Again, only on switching inputs as once the picture comes on it doesn't cut out at all. It did not take that long on the 6040UB for the picture to display on input switching. I'm using FW 25.

For sync time, you can try options I listed above and see if one gives better results, if none give you any better or expected results, I recommend you exchange for Vertex which is much faster to sync.


Regarding the settings for HDR, according to usermanual, HDR is only supported for 4K24 but as it seems it can accept up to 600MHz, I would first control what happens when you play 4K60 HDR, see if display accept it or reject it.
If 4K60 HDR not possible for the PJ, then you must determine what you want to do with that, either downscale to 1080p HDR (if PJ supports it) or instead use a limited EDID to avoid getting 4K60 HDR in in the first place.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

So, is the Vertex potentially just going to give me faster sync times or is it just a better device overall. When you say, "exchange", I can literally exchange the product or I assume you meant to change over to the Vertex. And, is the purpose of using this to try and achieve 4k60, 4:4:4 or am I better off just foregoing the usage of this device since I no longer have the Xbox 1X and care about HDR gaming? I bought this device to get HDR from the Xbox 1X on the 6040UB.

Vertex will give you faster sync and much more as it is a better device overall.
Exchange means, you can buy Vertex and trade in your existing Linker, so you don't have to pay full price for Vertex. Just send email for that.


The purpose was just my recommendation to make your sync time faster. Both Vertex and Linker supports up to 600MHz, so you can try with any of them.


I think you need to run some test on your PJ first as I outlined previously, some HDR content are 4K60 mandatory, like Netflix on many platform, so I would make a test with 4K60 4:2:0 10b HDR (typical from Netflix or UHD BR) or 4K60 4:2:2 12b HDR (typical from X1X or PS4PRO HDR games) and see how your display react to such signals (this is because the manual listed capabilities are a bit strange as I said before)

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

Ok, but I'm confused about setting this manually as I don't really understand this. Is there any way of letting me know what settings I should try based on the projector I have. I'm confused because you apparently had an auto setting (pushing a sequence of buttons on the linker) to set it for the 6040UB but not for the LS10500. So, if we go by the tabs on the GUI what should I set the options to under each one of them (EDID MANAGER & SCALER I belive are the only two tabs to worry about unless the others as well - HDR/AVI, INFOFRAMES, 3x3 MATRIX, CONFIG).

giving you settings is no problem, the problem is your display usermanual makes little sense to me, so if you read again what I wrote, I'm asking you to make a few tests to see what kind of signal your PJ can accept, those test can be done with SOURCE > DISPLAY directly.
So once you confirm the tests results, i'll be able to give you settings if needed or possible.


We more likely already covered your PJ but in the past a very complete Linker thread was removed from AVSforum, and I'm not sure this one have info on your PJ but you can of course also check this with search feature on AVSforum, may be you find more straight forward answers given in the past.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

Just thinking ahead here for a bit - can the HDFury Linker downsample an incoming Xbox One X (or PC) 1080p / 1440p 120hz signal? Just thinking about making the whole system 'future-proof', then again, I guess HDMI 2.1 won't show up until 2019 / 2020 anyways.

Linker can only scale up/down between FHD and UHD (so 2160p <> 1080p).
I don't recall bandwidth consumption for 1440p 120Hz at the moment but I recall that 1440p144Hz is above HDMI2.0b bandwidth of 600MHz, around 650MHz if I recall right, therefor, 1440p144 can only work with Display port currently.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

Running FW on Linker is 0.20

Cable length from PS4 to Linker and from Linker to Yamaha is the same, 0.80 cm each and these cables are both full 18 gbps and HDCP 2.2 capable.

Here is the link below for user manual Yamaha AVR,

http://www.pdf-manuals.com/pdf/yamah...ser-manual.pdf


Ok please start by updating to either FW0.23 or 0.25, those are the only two for covering most sources.
Since you have to update, after update you can run GUI and take screenshot to share you settings (in case you still have issue after update)
Hello HDFury,

As you suggested, i updated linker to 0.25, and i still have the same issue... When i increase volume through Yamaha, nothing appears on TV and when i push option or another like that, screen disappears, showes like without signal ( last photos posted )

Here below i posted GUI screenshots and video in which my problem is showed...

How is the unit powered, I don't understand the issue with sound level and what you mean by "I push option or another like that".


Make a test connect PS4 > LINKER > DISPLAY using your cable, see if it works or not.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

Powered from the usb port 5V which is on the front panel of Yamaha...

Linker works, i can get all sound and picture on screen... But while i am watching something through Linker, image on TV disappears when i push any button on remote of Yamaha but at the same time i get sound... Just nothing displayed on the screen...

Hope i can explain this time)

My only issue is that most of the time when I start up my system, I get a blank screen. Only by unplugging power to the Linker and then plugging power back in do I get an image. I then seem to be able to switch between sources successfully most of the time. Is there a particular startup sequence that is needed to make sure the Linker syncs successfully every time?

Total 3 options, one should give you better results.


PS: if 1.4 is mandatory in your system cause of video path and equipment in it, please confirm the video/signal path.
Finally had time to try all options described above, but none seem to resolve the issue of no sync on startup. I have to manually cycle power on the Linker just about every time I power up my system to get it to sync. Is this normal behavior?

Try to power from wall plug adapter (5V2A) and see if you have same issue.

It should be issue with MX receiver, I suggest you trade in for Vertex, send email to hdfury.com (see footer of any page) they can give you discount and good offer on your current unit.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

I have followed your steps as instructed but somehow, I can't get rid of the HDR signal through the settings. Screenshots attached. Would be great to get your input on these points. The very last screenshot just shows a a simple 4k60p Non-HDR setup while the first pictures for testing purposes are 1080p HDR signals. The problem obviously persists with 4k60p HDR signals.
Hi @HDfury , what is the latest on cables on the HDFury Linker - any experience with the ones below? Is the minimum recommended length still 3m? Thanks!

According to the reviews %, there should be something like 10% non working for this cable brand, may be more as no one knows which bandwidth was tested by happy customers.


Anyway I would say its a safe bet since we have numerous customers with same cables and they are usually ok.


600MHz recommended length is between 6ft and 12ft, that means between 2m and 4m, we do not create those values out of thin air, actually some AVR usermanual recommend the same.

Use Automix/SINK mode for DV support on AVR-Key/Integral. Linker does NOT support all DV.

Thanks for that - will give them a go as I have found the AmazonBasic 2.0 cables to be fairly unreliable - is this consistent with your experience as well?

Another Epson owner posted on the 5040 owner's thread that he found in another thread how to disable the second input on the Linker, and that seemed to make the performance consistent for him. Is there a way to disable the second input on the Linker?
