Hdmi In need a fix and shoud work
Maybe a bit out of topic here but still
I decided to do some experiment hoping to find something that could be useful
To improve Hdmi in
After my Zappiti arrival I did some experiment with hdmi in and here is the info about what I found
For this –this time*** I dint’t linked the player to a 4k tv –that will be done next. For now I just used
1 regular hd 1080 p (& 1080 24 capable) sony tv
1 oppo 95 Br player (hdmi 1,4a)
1 regular cable tv box capable of only 1080\50
1 regular DVD player yhamah capable of only 1080\50\60i
1 denon 3930 DVD player capable of 1080p
1 denon av amp (1,3 hdmi )
* Zappiti 4k player hdmi out to TV thru denon
**(I guess that’s one of the reasons why in its settings only appeared resolutions for standard & hd till 1080p the other the TV itself being limited to regular 1080p)
*** (for now because next time I will use my 4k tv and my 4k cable TV box)
1-All devices were accepted fine but not the oppo. Image of oppo menu or movie shown
on TV was greener than green – incompatible !
Funny because this was the only 1.4a hdmi device there besides the Zappiti !...
2- Cable TV box
2.1-just passing the signal thru the denon “direct” to TV
2.2 – Using denon setting for resolution
a) 2.1-results were better = the image issues were a bit less noticeable
b) Setting 1080 p for output from 1080i TV box gave the worst results in motion.
Completely inacceptable for a football game or movies
c) Setting box TV to 720p:
C1- setting 1080i in Zappiti output resolution gave better image than c2 but (still inacceptable)
C2-- setting 1080p in Zappiti output resolution gave better image than 1080i input signal
C3- setting 720p in Zappiti output resolution gave the best image
for moves and TV
- Not so: to football\ sports with lots of motion but much better than with 1080i sources
First I thought: well it likes progressive inputs and dislikes interlaced .
If it was just that I wouldn’t be writing this.
After doing same with the other devices I realized this: (the important part of this mg)
1-the info about resolution that appears at the bottom of TV it is about the signal in i Zappiti
2- When the input was 1080 50 or 60i regardless the device (TV box \ DVD players)
The info always shown 1080 25 I and it should be 108050i
So the hdmi in app has this malfunction interpretation
I think the image issues with standard hd material are due to this bad interpretation of the input signal
if that one is interlaced and not progressive
Can this help the improvement of hdmi in ?
