- MUTE SOUND GOING TO TX1 from CONFIG PAGE, see if it fix it.
- TURN ON SONY ANDROID FIX, see if it fix it. (on config page as well)
- Try Custom EDID mode instead of Automix
- Connect OPPO203 directly to DIVA input (bypass AVR for test purpose)
IF none of the above help for the issue, you can revert back to default value and yes please compare hehavior between TV input 1 and other inputs, as from the TV usermanual input 1 and all others differ.
I have tried with FW 0.38 you sent me via PM. And the results are the same.
Tested with Automix (Max video, max audio) and Autoscaling 4K30-> 1080p 8b
Mute Sound going to TX1. Same results.
Turn On Sony Android Fix. Same results. With this option the hdmi handshake is quicker. Normally, the hdmi sync seems to occur twice. PJ screen normally says:
"Searching…No Source found…Searching… Source Found".
With Sony option checked, it is quicker just "Searching...Source found" and this way I don’t lose the first seconds of the Intro before the BD menu. But results are the same or even worse, because successive tests going from 60p to 24p have let the TV with No Signal.
With Custom EDID (11). It does not Work. TV No Signal.
Also connecting the Oppo directly to Vertex2 RX0, without using the AVR, same results.
All this have been with HDMI input 1 (ARC) on TV. Repeating all tests with HDMI input 2 on TV give the same results.
TV only works OK when Vertex2 is NOT doing downscaling on TX1. This is achieved starting all equipment except the PJ from OFF, or recovering a TV no signal, by rebooting the Vertex2 keeping the Projector on TX0 powered Off. This way Automix present RX0 with 1080p RGB and the Oppo (with setting Video Output on Auto) gives always an hdmi signal 1080p.
This way the TV works OK for long time without any blackouts with following signals, depending on content:
1080P59.940 RGB L 12b 223MHz
1080P23.976 RGB L 12b 111MHz
1080P23.976 422 BT709 12b 74MHz
1080P23.976 444 BT709 12b 111MHz
Note that we have here 12b and it works.
But when Vertex2 is doing TX1 downscaling something different must come in the HDMI signal that makes TV work bad. In this case, always TX0 Projector working properly, the TV only works receiving TX1 following signals:
1080P23.976 444 BT709 8b 74MHz, But with periodic Blackouts
1080P23.976 RGB BT2020 8b 74MHz, But with periodic Blackouts
1080P23.976 444 BT2020 8b 74MHz, But with periodic Blackouts
For me, all this is fine for the moment, as I only need one of the displays (either TV or PJ). When switching from one to the other, I know now that I have to “restart” the devices in that way, to avoid Vertex2 TX1 downscaling. Then all works as intended without having to change configurations on equipment, just doing a particular starting sequence.
No doubt that the TV Philips 42PFL7695H / 12 that has some hdmi glitches, but if you are willing to investigate anymore, my guess is that there is a difference on TX1 signal when doing downscaling from RX0 (4K) that when passing directly the 1080p from RX0. And TV doesn’t like that difference.
Many thanks, again, for you great support!
