Dolby Vision works fine for me to LG C7 through the 8802A. Never had any pops ever with mine, so something is very wrong.Scratch that.
The reset fixed that for all of 10 minutes. Then the pops popped back again.
I finally figured out that the pops were caused by passing Dolby Vision through the 8802A. I read that it was a similar issue with a Denon of the same vintage.
So it looks like there is an issue with the 8802A and passing through Dolby Vision. I was using the 8802A with my projector and that didn’t have Dolby Vision before. But now I’m using the Vertex 2 to trick the sources like AppleTV to output in low latency Dolby Vision.
Has no one else encountered this before?
I turned off Dolby Vision and the pops have disappeared.
C7 isn’t using LLDV.Dolby Vision works fine for me to LG C7 through the 8802A. Never had any pops ever with mine, so something is very wrong.
hi woof woof, it sounds very much like a hdfury thing as kind of instability i have seen with hdmi can introduce. however ....the amazon basics is not a premium certified hdmi cable so leaves some uncertainty.... the VERY low cost of mono price premium certified... means really no reason not to use them. We in oz (if have prime membership) get free shipping for over $50 purchases.... can bundle a cable in with something else.... they are really well made high quality cables, I see no reason to spend more on anything else if looking for peace of mindI’m using Amazon Basics HDMI cable. Could that be a limitation? They are rated for 18Gbs.
Might go try a Kordz cable next.
hi rocky allm is auto low latency mode... this is not LLDVIs ALLM the same as LLDV. Are we confusing two different terminology as the same ?
HDR 10+ only added to the current 2020 models and with the "A" upgrade to the AV8805.I now that Dolby Vision and ALLM were both added via a firmware update in 2018, but recently if found out that HDR10+ did not work on the AV8802a L.
I contacted Marantz and they told it should work from the beginning, but after delivering proof it didn’t they suddenly told that is not possible is too ad Dynamic HDR tot the 8802a because the HDMI 2.0a board.
Strange because DV is also Dynamic HDR…
I live in The Netherlands and the person at the Marantz Helpdesk is not capable to answer anything other than what’s in de Q&A database.
Anyone who can help?
no update for me and am in Au,There is apparently a new firmware update on my 8802A. It says Auro3D (for European only).
I’m in Australia. So not sure what that’s supposed to do.
It’s connecting to update now. Fingers crossed.
A manufacturer is only going to support an old product for so long. By the time HDR10+ actually existed, the Marantz AV8805 had already been released, so they added HDR10+ support to the 8805. Five years after release the 8802A is still a very capable and high performing processor. HDR10+ is one of the few new features it doesn't support. And the impact to most users is slim to none. It's pretty tough to sell new products if manufacturers continuously add new features to old products.I know, but what I don't understand is that Marantz refuses to upgrade the firmware of the 8802a to HDR10+.
It has the same 2.0a HDMI as het Oppo 203 and Oppo did the HDR10+ upgrade to output HDR10+, Dolby Vision and HGL...
Thanks Jerry, I have indeed read your write-up, and concur that blindly aligning polarity and delay is not enough.I offer a different point of reference. I always believed sub response would be optimized if all subs were properly time aligned and polarity-matched. However, during a lengthy analysis using REW measurements, I found that in some cases time aligning the subs did not produce the smoothest bass response. Same goes for matching polarity.
Indeed, every setup is unique and has its challenges in getting everything dialed in properly. My point, on which you seem to agree, is rely on measurements, and to not accept preconceived notions about what should be best.Thanks Jerry, I have indeed read your write-up, and concur that blindly aligning polarity and delay is not enough.
I actually use a combination of group delay and FR / waterfall metrics in REW to determine alignment.
In the end, using sharp percussive sounds (in the 60 to 90Hz range) to confirm the timing.
In my case, I have one IB sub front-center, one huge sealed sub rear-center and two nearfield Mid-Bass Modules, and getting the MBMs delay just right took over an hour of tweaking while reviewing metrics in REW.
