If I understand it correctly, marking DV FLAGS: CUSTOM STRINGS on the EDID page will use the factory default Sony A1 LLDV string from the CUSTOM DOLBY VISION DATA BLOCK on the HDR/DV page. And thus should function exactly as it did with the previous Force DV check box.
About the update in general: yes it' s a serious update and it have lot of new values in export, especially various status for input/output that should allow us to understand and solve tough issue more easily, actually it is getting close to signal analyzer
About the above, yes before LLDV forced A1 string, but guys here wanted to play with the string values, so now the DV string is fully exposed, default is same as before LLDV from Sony A1, but now anyone can play with values, or force any other LLDV or normal DV from any DV TV just by copying the string in it, so you can just connect your DV TV, see the string on the DV page and copy it to be used while applying some changes... of course that is for advanced users only, so normal user should just use Automix normally and it will use their TV DV string or check DV custom string and it will use Sony A1 LLDV.
Of course, no need to ask us which bytes does what or what represent what in that string, no one actually knows unless you pay Dolby fee and they of course do not allow small company like us in their paid membership club, so one needs to have some skills and patience and try to figure it on its own, that is what we made possible here, people can now try to deduct what does what.
