HDFURY LINKER FAQ
Got questions ? We have answers !
My display is supposed to accept 4K60 4:4:4 signal but it does not work ?
For most UHD TV set we tried, there is always extra configuration options to active in order to achieve a 4K60 4:4:4 600MHz link. For ex, on samsung: in order to enable the 444 colorspace for 4k in Samsung TV:s you must go to “settings” and “hdmi” and “UHD color” and enable it. Then also you must assign the HDMI port1 as “PC” in the tools menu. Only after these two steps will 600MHz be accepted. Similar activation trick is require on most UHD TV. Additionally, most UHD TV only have certain specific ports that are 600MHz capable.
I have a PC mode on my TV (or a PC monitor) what resolutions are supported for graphics mode ?
All PC graphics mode within the 600MHz bandwidth are supportedby the hfury linker, including ultra high resolution such as WQSXGA, QUXGA, QFHD, WQUXGA, 4K.
What output resolution does the HDfury Linker support in HDTV mode ?
All known SD, HD, Full HD and UHD formats are supported including: 480p50, 480p60, 576p50, 576p60, 720p50, 720p60, 720p100, 720p120, 1080i25, 1080i30, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p30, 1080p48, 1080p50, 1080p60, 1080p72, 1080p75, 1080p96, 1440p50, 1440p60, 2160p24, 2160p25, 2160p30, 2160p50, 2160p60 (these are examples only, anything within the 600MHz bandwidth is supported).
What version of HDMI does the HDfury Linker work with? Do I need HDMI 1.3/1.4a/2.0a? Does it matter?
It does not matter. HDfury Linker works with any version of HDMI from 1.0 and up.
Do I need to set anything special in my HDMI source device to set resolution correctly?
No. The HDfury Linker will be detected as 2160p60 4:4:4 capable device by your source and always accept and process the highest quality stream from your source devices. There is no need to set the HDMI source to any specific resolution.
Is there any latency (delay) introduced to the signal?
Virtually none. The latency added is in the order of a few pixel clocks only. Nothing noticeable at all.
What is the USB port for?
To supply power from the supplied USB power unit and for firmware upgrades when new (additional) functions and enhancements are offered.
What about long HDMI cable runs? Can I expect issues?
For 600MHz user must use “high speed” cables, Similar as used with 4K24 content, for 1080p or less almost all cables are ok. HDfury Linker acts as an HDMI repeater device. So having a HDfury Linker in the path will amplify and recover the signal. You should not need any passive (or active) HDMI amplifiers, especially if you put HDfury Linker in the middle of your cable run. If you previously had to use an amplifier, the HDfury Linker can most likely take its place. The HDfury Linker has been used with 50 foot (and longer) HDMI cables without issues.
How are the new lossless audio formats via HDMI input handled ? E.g. DTS-HD/MA and DD/E-AC3 : Are they stripped down to DTS core or Dolby Digital respectively to fit the requirements of the S/PDIF standard ?
Everything supported, Lossless audio is transmit through HDMI output. HDfury Linker does not compress or otherwise create loss to the incoming audio.
