has anyone managed to get a Mede8er med600x3d mediaplayer working correctly with a HDP Pro through DVI?

The med600x3d is configured to 1080i60. Menus are displayed right, but when playing a movie through it I get picture dropouts and purple/pink tint.

The med600x3d doesn't have a way of setting the colorspace to RGB. A PS3 and a Popcorn Hour A400 show no problems whatsoever (RGB can be set there).

Thanks in advance!

Are the Lumagen Radiance firmware programs compatible with Windows 8?

I updated my laptop to Win 8 Pro 64 bit and just tried to update my Lumagen Radiance XE and was unable to.
I did the unplug and plug back in and hit start after 10 seconds, etc.

I am using a serial to USB cable. There wasn't a problem with prior OS (Win 7 I think) with the cable.

Thanks for any help.

I recently acquired another HDQ for another setup of mine. The unit exhibits sparkles when using the two analogue component inputs (tried both). White dots on black and black dots on white. Rarely colored ones.

After a reset with the output resolution set to 480p I don't see them, but they're obvious once the unit is set to 1080p output.

What I did: changed the HDMI cable, did a forced FW update, tried adjusting the sync-sensing level (0944) , re-calibrated the input (0966).

The sparkles are not present on the digital inputs. On the analogue inputs they're stronger with 480p input than with 480i signals.

And now the funny thing: if I use the same source, but set it to RGsB (Sync on Green) instead of YCbCr (same 31khz, 480p signal), the sparkles are 100% gone. (When I leave the source in YCbCr mode, but set the HDQ to RGsB, they're gone as well, but of course the colors are wrong then).

I got another HDQ which doesn't show these, also a ProHDP, also without them. I know, an old machine, but maybe there's somthing I missed. Any ideas ? Any help is of course highly appreciated !

Thanks !!

I have my HDQ outputting 1080i@96 and every about 10 minutes, it seems to lost synchronization and displays a black screen for 1 or 2 seconds and then goes back to normal. At 1080i@72, I don't have the problem. I am connected to a Barco 808 via HDMI input card.
That's shame because the picture at 96Hz is amazing.
Thanks for your help

I have a problem with my HDQ and I can't solve it. With DVI output, there's no problem but with RGBHV output, colors are not good and yellow color become black or dark brown. It is not a display problem because I try on several and always the same thing.

Anybody have the same problem ?

With RGBHV output, no yellow (popcorn C200 menu)

With DVI output, it's OK (sorry, picture is not very good)

Hi all,
I talked to Gordon yesterday and was wondering if any body else could shed any light:
I have a HDP (last version of software installed)
It operates to a moome DVI in a Sony 1292 (yes i still have the same unit as featured in the calibration DVD I produced for Graham !!) to deliver good 1080p from a Panasonic BDP35 BD player's 1080p24 output and an Oppo SD player's SDI output.
So all fine............

Then I added a Moome V2 HDMI card for some fun and pain + suffering has followed (heehee)!!
I can get the SD oppo via HDMI direclty to the V2 Moome to throw a great 1080p picture. Much improved over the Moome DVI card perfromance I might add....
But the HDP will not talk to the V2 at all; no matter what settings I try (I think I have tried them all!!!)
The Panasonic BDP 35 BD player will not talk to the V2 correctly - it throws the wrong scaled image (I think it looks like 576p is being pushed by the BD when hookd up directly to the Moome V2 HDMI card) We're in PAL land here in Australia of course so I am using 47."something" input frquency on the 1292 with 1080p which looks fine.
So has anyone got their exact settings on a HDP to connect 100% to a Moome V2? This is not the recent version with mods to force connection. I have contacted Moome and with send it back to him if I cannot find an answer.
If in fact there is no answer I'll do that anyway and maybe see if I can get an early V3 card from him instead.
But I would like to make this current setup work first if I can, so any help would be great appreciated!!

Hope any CRT'er's out there that got the DVD from Graham enjoyed it and found it useful !!

Long time no see Wink Which is a good thing indicating that my set up has been running flawlessly ...up till now.

I got a Marquee 9500LC, Sony BDP550 and a Lumagen HDP.

I noticed there was some sync problem during start up sometimes and I figured that perhaps the settings were changed a bit, including the firmware updates of the sony.

So I started to check each bit and the PJ is ok, accepting the 1080p 59.94Hz what the scaler is sending out. So far so good.
However, when pushing the "display" button of the Sony, it shows the HD audio and Resolution while playing a BD disk and it says 480i :roll:

So, let's set the BD player res to ...1080i....low enough for the input of the Lumagen and high enough to capture the full BD resolution-data (right?)
The player seems to be trying to output 1080i when I set the player to "auto" so something is indicating the scalerinput can have 1080i (no?) result, except for the player to go back to lower resolutions as 480i (can also do 480p/720p).

I am puzzled now, since previously when I pushed the "display" button of the BD player it did mention 1080p/24

Anyone got an idea what is wrong and what can be done?

I have looked at the DVE HD "GREEN" stair step pattern and have clipping at the 95 ire and above.

However when I look at the DVE HD "GRAY" stair step pattern (I have a front CRT projector and can turn off blue and red guns to leave Green on) I see no clipping.

Shouldn’t these two patterns show identical?

Is the DVE HD "GREEN" stair step pattern somehow different? Maybe recorded at higher levels?????

Which would be the correct one to look at in regards to clipping green?

My equipment is:
Toshiba XA2 HD DVD player
Lumangen HDP - just upgraded to lastest software
Sony G90 front CRT projector
Sony 550 Blu Ray Player

I'm having a rather strange problem with my HDP.

It worked fine for the first couple of days then suddenly stopped responding to IR commands from my Harmony and from it's own remote. Tried RS232 from my laptop which worked but whatever I did I couldn't get the remote working again.
As a last resort I reloaded the firmware and both remotes started working again.

A couple of days later (tonight) and it will not respond via IR again, hooked up the RS232 to get the TV working and RS232 is fine but, still no IR...

Anybody got any ideas as to what might be causing the problem? I'm running the latest firmware and hoping it's not a faulty IR receiver - I've only had it a week!! Confused

Is there a way to send BDP-S550 video in YCbCr4:4:4 via HDMI to the HDP as while also sending HD Multichannel Audio via HDMI to my AVR? So far, it seems I can have one or the other, but not both, since my AVR (and DVD, cable box...) convert all video with a DVI involved to RGB.

Option 1: Blu-ray to AVR to HDP = HD (HDMI) audio, but with RGB video. I believe I’ve tried every EDID option/combination on the HDP to no avail.

Option 2: Blu-ray to HDP = YCbCr 4:4:4, but with Analog Audio from the BD to AVR. Analog audio equals loss of AVR audio management such as Audyssey…

Note: I’ve tried an HDMI splitter/switch, but have only managed to get 2-channel audio to the AVR.

Lastly, if DVI is the issue here, why do all the Lumagens; save the Radiance, use it instead of HDMI?

My Lumagen works fine over RS232 using all commands descripted here

but I have 2 Zoom commands I did not work out so far.

Arrow ^ on the original remote control zooms the picture up by 5%
Arrow v on the original remote control zooms the picture down by 5%

If I am using the same commands over RS232, I do not get any reaction at all on the zoom of my picture.

Anyone have a clue ?


I found the answer, sorry for asking:

New rs232 commands in the 071706 sw:
"ZY0M" : This sets the zoom factor to M, where M can be 0-2 (or 0-7 if zoom set for 5% steps).

I try to correct the colors of my RS2 with a lumagen HDP without real success. I did read the Lumagen note but it's not oriented to people that have a calibration system. I have a CA6x from progressive labs and also Calman with the ionepro probe.

Any body can help me with that?

First I used a Digital Video Essential HD for the different test pattern needed. Do I understand correctly that I need to display the 75% colors windows (not the 100%) to help me calibrate the colors?

The different control available don't seem to do the trick. If you know a thread here on AVS that could point out the step by step process it will be appreciated.

I've been able to get the colors closer to the triangle x,y coordinate but Y is compleatly off when I do that.

Has anyone with the above player done any comparisons to see whether it is better to have the XE1 do the de-interlacing?

I have this player to replace my Denon 2900 SDI player for DVD playback, so would be interested to hear other's findings...

Cheers, Lee
