I have nothing hooked up to the Philips HSB HDMI output, but I could attach it to an unused HDMI port on the TV. I believe it's a feature/bug that when the Philips HSB has nothing hooked up to its output, it normally presents as 1080p60 12b. Hooking up the Philips HSB to an unused port was the first thing I wanted to try.

so if it presents itself as such when nothing connected and if you have nothing connected, then that confirm that AVR is not routing TX1 to monitor 2 before reboot and that could be from any of the reasons i listed before.

Config export

@HDfury
Good Day,
Just wanted to send you my configuration export to see if I am maximizing my DIVA with my JVC RS420 and apple 4K TV while using LLDV.
Thanks.

Looks good to me but i guess you might get better expertise from similar PJ owners that tried various values for LLDV datablock.
I would however recommend to update/use latest firmware.

I also think you have custom gamma curve or something set cause no custom HDR injection set here, in this case you would need to provide details on which gamma curve you installed on your PJ.
this is JVC specifc question i guess, i cannot help much on it.

So may be just ask which value they are using for similar PJ here: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/465-h...l#post59647742

Ok thanks @HDfury . I did install custom gamma curves from fellow users here, I do think the LLDV is great. I tried it on the Oppo 203 watching Wonder Woman, and really enjoyed the viewing.

Yes from my point of view, except that you are not running latest firmware, everything is fine.

The rest is fine tuning between custom curve in use and LLDV datablock values, which i cannot help much with since it is very relative to PJ specs and what your eyes and own perception prefer.

Thanks.
Appears to me that you are using the default Dolby Vision block values in Automix mode which should be paired with a DCI-P3 color profile in the JVC. Otherwise you might be getting a red tint using the BT2020 color profile.

You are not sending custom HDR and you are not using the JVC macros so you must be manually selecting your JVC HDR10 picture mode. That's OK since no HDR metadata means the JVC dynamic iris is not disabled.

Exactly @claw , I am not getting any red tint, and am using the DCI-P3 color profile, as it really looks great. If I do switch to Vudu and want HDR10, then I do manually select it. But the darn LLDV looks great really with everything right now, and the DIVA has it tuned in, I don't want to mess with it...

I believe my issues were exactly as you diagnosed, related to the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. I hooked up the HSB output to an unused HDMI port on my LG TV and there are no issues since with my Xfinity Flex TV nor Apple TV 4K.

But I am having similar, albeit different, issues with my Fire TV Stick 4K. When I turn on everything, the Fire TV Stick 4K shows a blanking screen (shows picture for 5-10 seconds, turns blank for 2-3 seconds, then picture again, then blank again, etc.) with no sound. I reboot the Diva, and everything comes back perfect with video and sound. From your earlier post, I'm guessing similar issues. Any guesses or things you think I should check?

1. TRY to unplug/replug TX1 going to AVR when you have the issue, does it fix it ?
2. Try changing AVR input to another and back, does it fix it ?
3. Try to put DENON AVR at AUDIO OUT and confirm if you have same issue or never again please.

What player would you use for Vudu?

Vudu has some Dolby Vision titles and if the player supports LLDV that would be the way to go for DV content.

For HDR10 content you don't need to do anything with respect to the Diva EDID. The player will still see HDR10 as supported.

@claw , I use sometime the Roku Ultra for HDR10 sometimes, but more recently using Apple 4KTV for Vudu, and Disney +. The DV coming thru just seems to be better to me. Last night the congif export was from Tomb Raider in DV from Vudu on A4KTV, and I thought it looked great, and got Dolby Atmos as well.
Thanks!

@claw , am I really missing out by not using the HDR and macros? I noticed that when I watched something on Vudu in HDX, I believe the projector switched profiles to the all HD profile that I have.

Some will have their player convert both 4K SDR and HD SDR to LLDV, but that requires either an Oppo, ATV4K, or Sony player.

But yes, for HDX the projector should switch to an HD profile with a REC709 color profile and a Gamma 2.3 or so. If you are using the Vudu App in an Apple TV 4K, you can force it to LLDV if you want.

You don't want to add HDR custom metadata for SDR sources. The projector will switch to an HDR mode and colors will be incorrect.

You don't want to add HDR custom metadata for existing HDR10 content as you will overwrite the original metadata values of the content.

If you add custom HDR metadata only when the content is LLDV, your projector will auto switch to an HDR picture mode. But it will disable the Dynamic Iris.

The JVC macros are really nice to have. I never have to manually select a user mode for the type of content. But then I have the first generation RS500 where it doesn't do anything automatically except engage the broken Gamma D for HDR.

Hello guys

I’ve just picked up the hdfury diva.
My equipment is as follows.
> Panasonic 55FZ-950 Oled.
> Fire TV cube
> Marantz NR1710
> Diva

I got the diva because I want to be able to passthrough a hdr10+ signal/ film from my library on Emby + Plex.
If I connect the Fire TV Cube to my tele it does this no prob.
However if I connect the Fire TV Cube via the Marantz, the receiver doesn’t support HDR10+ passthrough, only vanilla HDR.
Hence I got the Diva as a switch...

I’m not too technically inclined at all, but have been trying to read up on the posts as much as possible..
How do I go about connecting all this, and getting the diva to passthrough hdr10+ to the tv, and extracting the sound to the receiver?
Also will I still be able to retain all onscreen menu options from the Marantz receiver on the tv, or will this be lost going via the Diva...

Thanks in advance.

Ps. - I’m willing to pay someone to setup all this up for me...thx

Keep your money and use your logic !

Connect your TV to TX0 output and connect your AVR either to AUDIO OUT or TX1

Then in webserver > EDID page > set AUTOMIX and select TX0 for VIDEO FLAG and select TX1 for audio flag (if AVR is at TX1) or AUDIO OUT for AUDIO FLAG (if AVR is at AUDIO OUT)
If you want AVR output and its OSD to TV, just connect AVR output to TV. (that have nothing to do with our device)

If problem, go in webserver > config > export config and add the TXT file as attachment to your reply (preferably do that when signal is going thru)

Getting full Dolby Atmos on a tv without eARC.

I have an LG c7 and Apple TV. Would the diva allow me to send full Atmos from the AppleTV to the eARC input on a sound bar via the audio HDMI channel? This would be pretty cool - and the ambi led’s would be icing on top.

There is no such thing as "eARC input on a soundbar" an AVR or soundbar that support ARC or eARC does it from it's OUTPUT and that goes to TV INPUT normally (in HDMI output goes to input, you cannot connect input to input or output to output)
Are you talking about SONOS soundbar here? if yes, there is NO SOLUTION in the world yet, but we will have one end of the year.

Now if you have anything else than SONOS (and one BOSE model that also only offer HDMI output), and that have HDMI input, then yes that will work as long as the AVR or soundbar support Dolby MAT2.0 which is what ATV4K use to transmit ATMOS.

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.

If you want AVR output and its OSD to TV, just connect AVR output to TV. (that have nothing to do with our device)

If problem, go in webserver > config > export config and add the TXT file as attachment to your reply (preferably do that when signal is going thru)

Thank you...that worked
I only wish there was a way now of getting my AVR OSD to pop up on the tv now....

Hello everyone. I'm trying to find something that will allow me to use a Yamaha YSP-5600 with a more up-to-date TV (LG CX OLED) and components (Apple TV 4K, PS4 Pro., Panasonic UB820 UHD BD-player).


I've listed a possible setup in this thread:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/195-s...l#post59686998


================================================== ================================================== ==========
TV eARC port (HDMI 2 on a LG CX OLED) -> YSP-5600 ARC port


UHD Blu-Ray (Panasonic UB820) -> HDMI Audio Out to YSP-5600 HDMI 1
--------------------------------------> HDMI Video Out to LG CX HDMI 1


PS4 Pro. HDMI Out -> [Device that can split audio and video] -> HDMI Audio Out to YSP-5600 HDMI 2
----------------------------------------------------------------------> HDMI Video Out to LG CX HDMI 3


Apple TV 4K HDMI Out -> [Device that can split audio and video] -> HDMI Audio Out to YSP-5600 HDMI 3
--------------------------------------------------------------------------> HDMI Video Out to LG CX HDMI 4


Cable Box -> Just the one HDMI cable to YSP-5600 HDMI 4
(Since it's broadcast cable from Cox Cable and they don't have any 4k / HDR programming)
================================================== ================================================== ==========



In the immediate post after mine, user Ellebob then mentioned I could use a HDFury 4K Diva instead of "[Device that can split audio and video]" that I had mentioned several times in the possible setup.


So basically I want to route the video output from almost all of my sources, directly to the TV and route all of the audio output from almost all of my sources, directly to the Yamaha YSP-5600. I also would like to still have at least one available HDMI port for quick connection of devices I might be testing or that someone might bring over.





So what says everyone? Is the "4K Diva 18Gbps" overkill for what I need? Is there something else anyone here can recommend if it is too much for what I need?

After some reading, it looks like it might be cheaper to get one of HD Fury's "AVR Key 18Gbps":
www.hdfury.com/product/avr-key/


and this Monoprice HDMI switch:
www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=302&cp_id=30201&cs_id=3020101&p_id=21 614


I would connect each source device to the Monoprice's inputs, then the Monoprice's output to the "AVR Key 18Gbps" HDMI input.


I'd then connect the "AVR Key 18Gbps":
- audio out to the YSP-5600 HDMI 1 (would it matter which input to plug into?)
- video out to HDMI 2 (eARC) port of the LG CX TV

If your TV is eARC capable, then there is 2 ways of doing it and TV APPS sound is critical information here, if you need TV APPS best sound or if you don't care about TV apps, then recommended device will be different.

FIRST WAY: Connect all your sources to your TV and use Diva/Vertex2 or Maestro to extract eARC and forward to your soundbar HDMI INPUT.

SECOND WAY: Connect all your sources to Diva/Vertex2 or Maestro and HDMI source sound and TV APPS sound (extracted by eARC) will be forward to your soundbar HDMI INPUT.


Then if you don't care about getting eARC full audio from TV APPS, then yes you can use device that simply extract audio from HDMI sources such as AVR-Key, Integral2 or Vertex1, and yes you can put a switch upfront, but you still have to find out that will work well, which is not easy today as many have bug, issues or limitations.
I would recommend Integral2 or Vertex1 to ensure 600MHz/18Gbps play nicely for any usage, AVR-Key is not recommended in 600MHz/18Gbps even if many users are using it for that.

Does anyone know of a way the DIVA can send a CEC Active handshake without a compatible device on the input? I would like to see this as a feature if it doesn't already exist. An example would be how the NVIDIA shield shows as an input even when DIVA is in between and while on any input but defined within DIVA. I would like to see input 0-3 to have the option to force a user defined name through a CEC Handshake and have an always active, or active when input detected option. This way I could use my TV input as a way to control the input on my DIVA.
