will ALLM,VRR,QMS,QFT etc etc work only in game mode??
No, but one would assume that a TV compliant with ALLM would automatically invoke its Game mode if the signal being conveyed to it is inclusive of the associated metadata? This mode disengages all video processing that would otherwise cause a lag, delay or latency.will ALLM,VRR,QMS,QFT etc etc work only in game mode??
Many thanks for your report and sad that you are now affected by it too.I updated my RX-V6A to the latest firmware last (presumably 1.23) and I immediately noticed the banding in Dolby Vision content. This was not happening before the update. I'm certain they are now writing firmware for this and will be fixed. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Aaarrrggghhhh! You quoted my post before I could fix a typo!Many thanks for your report and sad that you are now affected by it too.
So big warning to all owners: Do not update to 1.23!
I could not remember if this was an issue with 1.20. I recognized it first with 1.23 but I did not use it intensively before the update and I'm new to HDR. But now I can stop questioning myself and it was not bugged with 1.20 and I did not recognized it because of that.
Funny, previously I did not know that color banding is a thing at all but it was obvious that the graphic could not be right.
There are two big updates already announced right now.As this is a new piece of gear with at least one major firmware update still to come, I'm sure Yamaha will fix this Dolby Vision bug.
Was able to get my Xbox connected and confirmed Dolby vision working correctly playing Netflix. So it seems the issue is with the Shield tv. Odd as it worked flawlessly with my Denon. Should I raise this issue to Shield or Yamaha? Not sure who would be able to help me correct it. Has anyone else tried playing Dolby vision content from Netflix on a shield and had trouble?Is Dolby Vision buggy for anyone else using a Shield tv? When I first setup it wouldnt even display. I could hear audio when playing a DV movie but no display. Maybe a HDMI handshake issue I eventually got it to display but it will randomly kick me off after playing for a few minutes sometimes too.
edit: turned everything off for an hour and came back and tried to watch dolby vision Netflix movie. Back to the original issue, audio will be playing but no display, just a black screen. Has anyone had this issue? I'm running premium HDMI cables and didn't have this issue with the same cables on my Denon. Using a Shield for Netflix, plugged directly into the V6A. V6A plugged into HDMI 2 eARC on LG B9. HD and Ultra HD4k labeled movies work with no issue, only Dobly Vision. Thank you
Thats good as im not a fan of CEC let alone the TV and console being switched on accidently and everything being switched over to blimming game mode and having to switch it back lolNo, but one would assume that a TV compliant with ALLM would automatically invoke its Game mode if the signal being conveyed to it is inclusive of the associated metadata? This mode disengages all video processing that would otherwise cause a lag, delay or latency.
"Auto Low Latency Mode" (ALLM) is a HDMI feature defined in HDMI 2.1 that allows a source such as a gaming console to direct all compatible components in the HDMI chain (e.g. AV-Receiver and TV sets) to enter its low-latency mode automatically without requiring the user to navigate a menu to set the optimal latency for their content. This allows the picture to be displayed with least possible delay which is desirable when gaming.
Displays using ALLM will reduce their motion compensation and picture processing etc. to minimise delays before presenting the information onscreen, making the gaming experience feel more responsive.
Compatible AVRs should disable the following functions as same as Game mode in the conventional video mode setting when the ALLM mode is enable at HDMI input signal to achieve a lower latency:
- Picture Adjust
- Audio Delay adjustments and auto Lip Sync adjustments
The other features although associated with games, do not necessarily need or require the games mode to be engaged. All you'd need is a TV that is equipped to exploit these features.
I don't think anyone has committed to a date, but I would think the plan is for by the end of the year.Does anyone know when the HDMI 2.1 Firmware is going to be released? Also which three HDMI inputs will support it? (I assume 1, 2 and 3) I'm using this receiver mostly as a gamer to overcome the Samsung TV limitation of 1 HDMI 2.1 port
I have a general newbie question. This receiver (v6a) is 7.2 but when I look at the Atmos specs its 5.1.2. What happens to the second subwoofer output? Is it disabled or is it actually 5.2.2?
Keep in mind that YPAO's distance setting is based on how long it takes sound to arrive from your speakers to the listening position as Yamaha know what the speed of sound - it's not actually measuring the distance as such.Anyway, I was just going through the settings and checked what YPAO did with my quick set up the other day. It completely goofed on the surround channels in a way I've never experienced before. Both are a little over 6 feet from the listening position, but YPAO set one at over 11 feet away and the other at over 23 feet away! I've since corrected that. When I run RSC this weekend I'll see if it duplicates that error.
For the V6 and V4 you can't save two speaker settings unfortunately. Or I am blind and have not figure it out how to do that.As you can save 2 x different speaker patterns, copy the original settings to the second pattern, then tweak them to what you think they should be - and compare the two different results.
The ability to save a second configuration is a feature that you only get onboard the high end Aventage models from Yamaha. THe RXV models have no such ability.For the V6 and V4 you can't save two speaker settings unfortunately. Or I am blind and have not figure it out how to do that.
Thanks for the confirmation, then I got it right. Would be a neat feature since my gaming and watching a movie position are 3m away. But I did not want to spend more than 1000 bucks.The ability to save a second configuration is a feature that you only get onboard the high end Aventage models from Yamaha.
