As I mentioned before, I purchased the Vertex2 (the successor to the Vertex) based on it's features. I understand what you meant by "men in the middle", but the HDFury website states that the Vertex could do ALLM & VRR and that the Vertex2 has all legacy features and more.
From the HDFury website:
Vertex2 Description states: "All HDfury legacy features remain present"
Vertex Description states: "HDMI2.1 features such as Auto Low Latency Mode and Variable Refresh Rate are supported for EDID signaling and source detection."
Please help me to understand why it's stated that is should be able to accommodate those features, but you're saying it can not without eARC support? My LG75SM9070 does support eARC on HDMI2.
Also, I apologize for my input path description. I was using "RX0" as the receive device i.e. my TV LG75SM9070. It was not looped back into the Vertex2.
How I'd like to use the Vertex 2:
Xbox One X -> (in 0) Vertex² (out TX0) -> LG 75SM9070
Pioneer Elite LX500 -> (in 1) Vertex² (out TX0) -> LG 75SM9070
Playstation 4 -> (in 2) Vertex² (out TX0) -> LG 75SM9070
Analog Super nT -> (in 3) Vertex² (out TX0) -> LG 75SM9070
---------------------------------------------------> Vertex² (Audio out)-> Pioneer Elite SC-99 AVR
Yes you can do how you suggested but not for VRR/ALLM/GSYNC/FREESYNC and whatever variable refresh mode "tech" out there.
Since if you read me correctly such tech only can work from source > display, not device in the middle can support fluctuations or very slightly > killing the purpose of such variable refresh mode.
"Auto Low Latency Mode and Variable Refresh Rate are supported for EDID signaling and source detection." >
What you do not understand in this sentence ? EDID signaling ? source detection ?
Our devices are used by studio, content creator and most big companies out there for testing purposes and that sentence is targeted for them. They can test such EDID capability with our devices and that does not mean you can PLAY with it since that's NOT how such tech work.
IF you have eARC TV then good ! all sources with ALLM/VRR/etc.. to eARC TV and then our devices can extract eARC sound and forward to your AVR input... make sure you get used to it because in a year or so that will be the way people use anything, SOURCE > TV > eARC > AVR

OutputTX1_Input0 (vertex2_inputselx0) - HTPC
OutputTX1_Input1 (vertex2_inputselx1) - Xbox
OutputTX1_Input2 (vertex2_inputselx2) - PS4
OutputTX1_Input3 (vertex2_inputselx3) - Fire TV
.... it works and when a particular activity is selected for TX1 the Vertex switches to the appropriate input and TX0 (Denon x1500 - LG TV) does not switch to the same input. However, what is happening is the Vertex is still sending a signal through TX0 to stay on the same input and not change.
What this signal from TX0 causes is the Denon x1500 to switch inputs to the Vertex input and the TV to switch to the Denon input as well. So if my wife is watching TV on the LG TV’s built in app (Sling TV or over the air TV) and I activate an activity on the JVC that changes inputs on TX1, the LG and Denon will auto switch to the Vertex.
Does that make sense?
What should happen if I use a x0,1,2, or 3 command is a signal should only go to TX1. No signal should go through TX0 ... and the same for the 0x, 1x, 2x and 3x commands - but signal for TX0 only.
The only time both should get signals is if inputsel0, 1,2,3 are used.
No it's not clear, do you mean there is HPD event ? if so that's normal you are switching to another source.
If you want one output already in use and not concerned by the source switching to not resync at the same time, we already wrote we will add such feature, so just be patient.
If you mean something else, then just try re explain please, thanx.
Or may be you are talking about cec switching ? if so then just set your CEC correctly on your other devices, nothing to do with our devices here.
Or may be you want to CUT OFF one output completely ?
