Can someone post pics of their macro tabs always wanted to do this..
Do you have a DB9 RS232 cable and 3.5mm audio extension cable run from the HDfury device to the JVC RS-232 port? That is the first step.
DB9 serial to 3.5mm audio cable to connect to the JVC serial port:
25 foot 3.5 mm Audio extension cable to connect from the above cable to the HDfury serial port:
You can get a shorter one if 25 feet is not needed, or you can connect two extension cables together if the distance from your HDfury to the JVC is longer.
I have attached a screen shot of the Macros tab in my HDfury Diva.
SDR-BT709 (HDTV) for 60P
SDR-BT709 (Film) for 24P
- I have both of these set to DO NOTHING
rather than have my JVC switch to my SDR-REC709 user mode. I do this so that the BT2020 filter does not click in and out each time playback of BT2020 material returns to an SDR menu. I watch so little SDR REC709 content that I manually select the user mode when I do.
SDR-BT2020 User 4
- User mode 4 is my SDR BT2020 picture mode. It is configured to use the BT2020 color filter and Gamma 2.4. Source is mainly MadVR playback of UHD discs.
- Both set to DO NOTHING
as I don't watch 3D, and x.v.Color is for older JVC projectors.
- Both are set to my User 6
custom user mode. I have a custom HLG curve loaded since my RS500 did not have HLG support like newer models do. I used to get HLG from Directv, but now limited to YouTube HLG videos.
HDR10 User 5
- If you have two custom curves, this is the user mode where you have your 4000 nit curve configured, otherwise set it to your single curve user mode.
HDR10-Opt User 2
- This is where you set the user mode where you have your 1000 nit or similar custom curve configured. Or to your user mode where you have your single custom curve loaded.
HDR10-Rec709 User 2
- This is where you would configure a user mode for HDR10 REC709. I have never seen such a signal and don't have a user mode configured for it. I just set it to the same user mode as for my 1000 nit custom curve. I could just as well set it to DO NOTHING.
LLDV User 3
- This is the new macro added to the latest generation of HDfury devices (Vertex2, Diva, and Maestro). This macro will send the RS-232 command to the JVC to switch to my custom user mode configured for LLDV.
- Note that if you have the original Vertex, it does not have this LLDV macro. When the Vertex sees LLDV it treats it as SDR BT2020 and will send the command to switch to your SDR BT 2020 configured user mode. If you don't have a SDR BT2020 user mode because you never have such content, you can enter your user mode for LLDV into the SDR BT2020 macro.
Each time the HDfury sees a content type change, it will execute the appropriate macro for the content type. The macro will send the proper RS-232 command to the JVC to select the configured custom user mode. If the macro is set to DO NOTHING, the macro will not send any command.
The CUSTOM HEX strings beside each macro allow the macros to control displays other than JVC. Leave them as they are for JVC, they are not used. If someone has a TV or projector that supports an RS-232 command interface they can determine and enter the Hex string to switch to a user mode or picture mode.
SEND ON EVERY SYNC
- The ENABLE checkbox enables or disables the Macros. I have found no reason to SEND ON EVERY SYNC.
- For now set it to Automatic. This setting will use the macros I described. Semi-Automatic and Custom make use of the additional CUSTOM HDR10 PROFILES macros. You could use these to select user modes based on HDR10 metadata values. I don't use them.
