I've been using the BDP-7501 since it came out, with my JVC RS400 Projector, and it works beautifully. No complaints.
However, I do have one issue that I'd like to resolve. One shortcoming of the JVC Projectors is that the HDMI sync, or handshake, time is rather long, in the 15-20 second range. This is triggered whenever there is a change in resolution, Hz, etc. So when turning on the player, putting in a disc, etc., there are several points where the handshake is renegotiated, resulting in a delay in getting things going. (Once they're going, the image is spectacular, fortunately!)
The base homescreen of the Player is 4k/60 Hz, while the HD and UHD BD discs themselves are 24 Hz. I would like to configure the Player so that it outputs only 4k @ 24 Hz. That way, only one HDMI handshake would need to take place, at the very beginning, and it would be smooth sailing after that.
I've reviewed the manual which addresses 4k/60 Hz output options, but it doesn't seem that any of the available choices would do what I want.
Does anybody know if there is a way to get only 4k 24 Hz output from the player?
(I'm going through a Marantz SR7010, but there doesn't seem to be an option there to output only 4k @ 24 Hz. One setting addresses this, but it still outputs 60 Hz when the incoming signal is at that frequency.)
