New to these forums and hope I’m posting in the right place. I have ordered one of these and am excited to receive it soon.
A few setup questions:
Is it possible to disable HDMI CEC? It is not required in my setup and I find it can sometimes be problematic (things turning on accidentally etc)
Relatedly, recommendations for using this with a Harmony Elite/Smart hub? I guess I can use the IR extender for IR control. But is it possible to add as a Harmony bluetooth device? Or IP device? If anybody could recommend the device/manufacturer to add would be much appreciated.
The main reason I purchased this is to play 4K UHD rips, which I have just started making from my discs using Makemkv (archiving as m2ts files). I have bought an Anker USB gigabit adapter in preparation after seeing some people finding movies which would not stream reliably over the 100 ethernet port (I don’t want to use Wi-Fi). I just tested the USB adapter I bought on a raspberry pi 3, using iperf3, and it consistently gives 300Mbit/s. I believe the architecture is similar so I can expect the same performance with the Vero 4K just by “plug and play”? I also I assume I will be ok to use this from first boot onwards?
Relatedly, should I still bother setting the buffer size in the advanced settings file to optimise playback of UHD rips given it will hopefully have a 300Mbit/s LAN connection via my USB adapter? I have set everything up in advance so the network shares will be via nfs and fstab.
I bought this after getting fed up of colour space issues with an Nvidia shield. It will be connected to a Sony 4K OLED via a Denon 2400 AVR. Should I be ok to just use default settings and expect REC 709/REC 2020 colour spaces to be switched automatically? It will only be used to play 1080p regular blu-ray rips (all rec 709) or 4K UHD movie rips (all HDR rec 2020). I.e. I don’t have any “special case” files in terms of colour space/resolution combos.
Sorry - I know is lots of questions! If you have 2 cents to offer, even on any partial question above I’d be grateful.
