I've asked about this a bit before, but would like a bit more info:
I would like to try, for fun, going from my Oppo 203 (I also have a Sony X800M2) outputting Dolby Vision (for SDR blu-ray discs) to my Lumagen Radiance and have the Lumagen think it's getting HDR so it'll apply dynamic tone mapping. Two questions:
1) What is the minimum device I would need? HDFury Vertex 4K? Or does this workflow necessitate the 4K Vertex2 (I tried seeing the diffs on their website and it wasn't clear).
2) Do I have to do anything special with color profiles or any of that since I'm letting the Lumagen do DTM? Can I just load a basic profile into the Vertex?
3) Am I being silly for trying this? Will regular blu-rays converted to Dolby Vision be compelling enough, given my setup?
