I'll send you a special firmware via PM, please check it.
Thanks for the firmware link. I just tried it. Unfortunately same result. I get sound but the TV says no signal found. Same thing with scaling off. I really appreciate all your help.

Just to close this out, I switched to a hyperkin adapter which works perfectly. Thanks again for the assistance.

Hi. Just got the Vertex2 and it fired right up

However, i don’t have a router nearby where the unit is placed. Is there another way of getting control of the unit, like the web server way? There is a RS232 cable and a USB cable included, can they work with a laptop? And if so, how?

RS232 use commands, there is no graphic user interface like you have on the "web server way", same for IR or IP.
If you have a laptop, you should be able to use the webserver (if it have Ethernet connector, otherwise you can usb to Ethernet adapter that you can find for 10 or 15$)

Thanks.

So i can use a ethernet cable straight from the Vertex to a laptop?

Yes, If I recall well it was discussed earlier in one of the recent device thread : maestro, vertex2 or diva.
The trick was setting up the PC as router (just google it)

Vertex2 FW0.31
This update is mandatory in case of issue only.
Anyone willing to update and provide feedback is welcome.


#######> What's new/fixed in 0.31

1. Added mute timing option on Audio Out for equipment that takes time to switch their internal decoder when switching between bitstream/LPCM


2. Added Matrix mode copy sink options under Automix, once activated it will simply copy each output EDID to the input when in Matrix mode

@HDfury
I've got a question: I've searched on the HDFury threads on AVS and also on your website, but wasn't able find a defintive answer.

Will the Vertex2 or any of newer HDfury devices' video processing allow for forcing output to a specific refresh rate regardless of the input's refresh rate?

I have the combination of ATV4K and a JVC 4K X9000.
When going from a movie @ 24P and back to the menus, the projector goes blank for about 11 seconds, while trying to re-sync to the 60Hz signal in the menus, and vice-versa.

I've tried all of the settings on the projector and ATV with no success.

Life is short. Enjoy!
Andrew.

Yes that's typical sync time for JVC, some JVC PJ have 20sec sync time.


We do not do frame rate conversion at 4K, only devices capable of doing that are LRP (7000$) or OPPO203 (1000$)

I just used a old unused router, connected Vertex2 to it with a ethernet cable, and then just connected laptop to that router wirelessly

I had a Integral earlier and tried this with that too, but a unexpected bonus of the Vertex2 is it somehow fixed the Atmos MAT to work with my dual Atmos AVR setup. I have a second AVR connected via zone2 HDMI out of the first AVR to add Atmos channels, and it works just fine for lossless Atmos, but not for Netflix. As soon as i turned on AVR nr2, Netflix reverted to 7.1 pcm. Supposedly because of MAT not handling repeated/serial HDMI handshakes, or something like that.

Not anymore, it works like a charm now with the Vertex2 Awsome !

If you are using Audio OUT now it prolly works because there is no HDCP on audio out, so you could have that working too with Integral but you would need special firmware for it to work the same way as there was no audio out on Integral.
When you cascade two hdmi/hdcp repeaters like that (your 2 AVRs), the keys handling is insane and mostly just fail all the time in most setup, so no solution without special firmware.

It actually worked when i first set it up the "old way" running through the first AVR(using Zon2 HDMI out) with the Vertex2, cascading and all
But i now just use the audio out HDMI from the Vertex2 to my second AVR, as it is easier and less programming on my Harmony.

PS: not sure if it is the recommennded way, but i have my Vertex2 between my sources and my AVR(Denon AVC8500H).
Reason: from my OPPO 203 i wanted the choise of UHD staight to AVR, and when watching 2D/3D BD i wanted to utilize my Darbee. So i put the Vertex2 between, and use output 1 straight to AVR, and output 0 via Darbee and to another AVR input. So i just choose AVR input corresponding to what i watch. And this works just fine

Putting Vertex2 after AVR HDMI wouldn’t work for using the HDMI audio out on Vertex2, because AVR HDMI out has picture only, no sound.

And i connected XBOX 1X And ATV4K on the other Vertex2 inputs, getting the before mentioned Atmos MAT bonus

I can't get any Audio from Audio out. Source: Dreambox DM900 (Stereo), Oppo 103 (bitstream), Rasberry 3 (Kodi, bitstream or stereo), Fire TV 4K. Sink: Projector JVC DLA X-7900, (I beliebe in USA its called X770R) (TX0) and Marantz AVR 7702 (Audio out). The OLED-display shows it but nothing to hear. I changed the HDMI-cable and the input of the AVR but anything helps. The monitor connected to the Marantz shows the test pattern!? Automix: Algorithm Max Audio, Max Video. Audio Flags: Audio out. Firmware in Vertex2 is 032. The Audio out is necessary for 4K because the Marantz has no HDCP 2.2. What did I wrong?

Try new FW0.33 just out and if issue, export and add your config as attachment.
Please note that you can connect to TX1, not necessary to AUDIO OUT, all our outputs are capable of HDCP converting 2.x > 1.x and TX1 can downscale as well if needed.

From an Engineering perspective, why does Vertex2 require a Ethernet cable connected to a router? ... No Go Blu? ... No wireless?

GoBlue is an accessory that allow Android/iOS phone to connect remotely to device that only had Windows GUI support and yet, updating firmware, exporting/importing config, uploading/download EDID is not possible via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), Windows GUI was mandatory for that.


When you connect new generation hardware to lan router then the following becomes possible:


MAC/WIN/LINUX/any computer can be used to run configuration, update fw, import/export config, upload/download EDID
if router have Wifi, then Android/iOS and any wireless computer or handheld device (phone/tablet/etc..) .. can also do the same.


So overall, it's a way better solution than having only windows GUI via USB. but if you prefer such USB link, get a 10$ USB to Ethernet adapter and connect any laptop (mac/win/Linux) directly to Vertex2.
You can also connect it to a wireless extender directly, it's networking, and anything possible in this field.


You can take this under any angle, it's better, superior and more flexible than ever.

Vertex2 FW0.34
This update is mandatory in case of issue only.
Anyone willing to update and provide feedback is welcome.


#######> What's new/fixed in 0.34

1. Updated ARC descriptor (Help getting DD+ via ARC from Sony TV)


2. Added IP INTERRUPT feature which when enabled send a ping to currently open TCP connection. (for IP control)
When its on then a change in the stream parameters will issue an "int" message on the current active IP connection.
Regarding the interrupt message on IP. It is issued after the new status is populated on various variables but before the OLED is drawn with these values.
Depending on the IP query it might need a few msec settle delay after the message issuance.

Lightbulb Coming next on Maestro/Diva/Vertex2

Hello guys,


Just a quick update to let you know that the following will be added shortly to our new generation hardware (Vertex2, Diva and Maestro)


Please note that Maestro won the Cedia 2019 Best Product Award in its category




1) IMAX Enhanced support to be added.
2) eARC descriptor custom upload: ability to upload your own eARC descriptor, this is a feature that will drive crazy any big studios for their testing purpose and will allow any power users to manage eARC audio as they wish.
Since our new devices are the sole in the world capable of extracting eARC and forward it to any AVR input, it makes sense that we extend the scope of that world first feature to some studios needs.

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.

Very nice additions, looking forward to hearing more about them when they arrive. I was watching "Journey to the South Pacific" and noticed that the Vertex2 already passes IMAX DTS successfully to my Denon AVR.

Would it be useful the Vertex2 to solve this Scenario?

Source: Fire TV Stick 4K
AVR: Onkyo TX-SR607 (HDMI input does not support HDCP 2.2)
TV: LG OLED C9

Problem1:
When Fire TV is connected to an LG TV HDMI input I get 4K Dolby Vision properly, but sound goes only to the TV speaker. I cannot make ARC to work to get sound via the AVR to the Home Cinema speakers.

Problem2:
Instead, if I connect Fire TV to an Onkyo AVR HDMI Input I properly get the Sound to the Home Cinema speakers and video output through AVR to the LG TV.
BUT, I cannot get 4K HDR on the TV, because Fire TV says the output is not HDCP 2.2 compatible and thus it display only in HD 1080p SDR. (The LG TV upscales to 4K, not too bad, but I cannot get HDR).

Would a Vertex 2 solve the problems? How should I make the connections?
Vertex 2 input would tell Fire TV that I have HDCP 2.2, so Fire TV would output 4K HDR. But would the Vertex 2 output, going to an HDMI Onkyo input, pass through the 4K HDR video from the AVR output to the TV?
Or should I connect a Vertex2 Output directly to TV, and the other Vertex2 HDMI output to the AVR for just the Sound?

I wonder if a Vertex2 could be worth a solution for this scenario, without upgrading to a new more up to date AV Receiver.

NOTE: This is my second house equipment, don't look to my signature main equipment

Denon AVC X8500H (Atmos 7.1.6, DTS:X, Auro-3D 13.1)
Optoma UHZ65 / Lumene Majestic Premium 270C
Dune HD Solo 4K / Dune HD PRO 4K
Pulsar Audio Ambiente 7 / Ambiente Center / Master M5 / Access AC

Yes it will solve that, it is made for that ! actually there is 2 ways to solve that, so you just have to choose which one you prefer, or try both and decide based on that:


1) Fire TV4K to TV, TV EARC to VERTEX2, VERTEX2 AUDIO OUT to your AVR INPUT


2) Fire TV4K to VERTEX2, VIDEO TO TV, FULL AUDIO to AVR INPUT

Is the vertex 2 meant to be powered on 24/7? If so how does it operate like that? Is it pretty stable or does it often need power cycles in order to correct any issues that crop up? or is it supposed to be plugged into an AVR power trigger on the back, to where it turns on when the AVR comes on?

Yes it is meant to be powered 24/7, it will idle when no signal and operate when signal is coming thru, either from input for video or via TV ARC/eARC for audio.

Congratulations HDFury for Maestro winning the prestigious “CEDIA EXPO 2019 Best Product Award” !

While I don’t have Maestro, I know Vertex2 has many of its key functionalities!

Vertex2 is Maestro TX without HDBT


This being said, winning award is great but it's not yet perfect as we want it so back to work and more update incoming.
Most of the delay in completing perfect firmware for new generation comes from eARC initially poor and firmware changing implementation on early eARC TVs and also us learning from all that

Hello @HDfury ,

Wonderful work you're doing with the update fixes, just curious if there is any news about VRR Passthrough for those of us who have TVs that do not support eARC. Thanks!
