Not sure why it's doing that - I have 2 boxes and 1 test board running, all connected to Vertexes, so they have an EDID present all the time, and mine have never reverted from settings I've made manually, even on very early firmware.Hi Mark,
Until I shutdown the Zidoo, it’s perfect (and indeed the HDR flag and info are kept unchanged using the mapping HDR - checked on Envy input).
As soon as I shutdown and power on the Zidoo, most of the time my config is lost and goes back to 60p + hdr auto. Randomly, the hdr setting is kept.
For my test, I kept everything up (my vertex is placed just between the Zidoo and the Envy with a custom edid (edid 11: 4K60-444 600Mhz HDR BT2020 All sound).
But the config is not keeping the config after shutdown. This is really annoying.. do you know if there is any plan on Zidoo side to have the possibility to force it?
Thanks a lot Mark, will give it a try.Not sure why it's doing that - I have 2 boxes and 1 test board running, all connected to Vertexes, so they have an EDID present all the time, and mine have never reverted from settings I've made manually, even on very early firmware.
Things can get a bit trippy when I'm continually messing with EDIDs, but once things have settled down the config is rock solid.
Try EDID 29 as a test.
This is the same as EDID 11 but restricted to 400MHz which is the maximum you want with the Envy anyway because you would always want 4K60 420 10-bit (400MHz) to match content and not 422 12-bit or 444 8-bit (both 600MHz).
Ok I think I found the problem: the “auto launch at startup” feature.I use Power Off.
Again very strange - you know what I'm going to say......Ok I think I found the problem: the “auto launch at startup” feature.
I used it to start up directly on HT4. But it seems to break the HDMI force config of Zidoo (at least for hdr and frame rate). I saw it with the display input of Envy where during the start up of Zidoo, it’s start with 60p then switch to 23p. When auto launch of HT4 is configured, this step is sometimes skipped. Maybe a ticket for Zidoo.
Mmmm strange indeed.Again very strange - you know what I'm going to say......
I always have HT4 launched on startup. I have HDR set to LLDV (although I used to have it set to Mapping HDR) and frame rate & resolution on 4K23.
There's got to be another variable at play here...
With the help of Mark (thanks again) I was able to understand how to fix my problem:New session shows that the problem persists. So there is another parameter.. I decided to reset to factory settings... will reconfigure my box.
EDIT: reconfiguration done.. seems mores stable but will confirm it.
I forget to mention that before resetting, I test a restart of the Vertex while Zidoo was running. The result was to put back the config to 60p.
