BT2020 on Rec709 display
Hello from across the pond in the UK!
I’m looking for some advice please.
I have hundreds of movies stored in a MKV format on a Synology NAS drive, many of which are ripped from Ultra HD Blurays preserved with wide colour gamut BT2020 and HDR.
I play back the files via KODI on my Nvidia Shield 2019 which is connected to my Marantz 7011.
The Marantz then hooks up to a HD Fury Vertex which feeds the HDMI to my LG B8 OLED (signal is passed through) and my HD750 JVC projector (signal is auto downscaled).
My issue is that the UHD MKVs look completely washed out on the PJ as it is playing them back at REC 709.
I’m wondering how best to address this issue short of buying a replacement PJ. I will in time replace the PJ with something like the Epson 9400, but I can’t justify several thousand pounds outlay for a couple of years yet.
Are there any settings I can utilise in the HD Fury Vertex for example? I don’t mind spending a few hundred pounds on alternative equipment to see me through.
