Ok, so, what a headache this thing is. I purchased the latest HDMI 2.0 Kit.
Getting HDR to work is hit or miss. To start with neither the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X would work in HDR, both said my display wasn't HDR compatible when it is. Its a top of the line Samsung QLED. I used the cables that came with the Lymti NEO and the cables that came with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X plus tried numerous other cables. Eventually it just started working for some odd reason.
This doesn't work at all with the Xbox Series X. It just goes crazy flashing on and off constantly cutting in and out and the colours don't work it just flickers white light instead of colours. A total mess.
When using HDR with games the colours are so diluted thet are just white. Turn HDR off and the colours are rich and vibrant. So this doesn't work properly with HDR at all.
I've had some audio cut out issues here and there and some stutters.
Doesn't even support LPCM sound or Dolby Atmos.
So, will any of this be fixed via firmware update, or is this as good as it gets?
Hi, I am having issues with audio skipping every 5 seconds. Any solutions?
@Matty UK @have you noticed that black bar correction does not work for old 4:3 aspect ratio? Left and right sides remain off while top and bottom light up.
I've contacted support and I can confirm that the colors are washed out when HDR is enabled.
They sent me a video and claim it's not an "issue" with the device itself but a user "preference".
I claim "BS" on marketing.
Utilizing an HDMI splitter to resolve the HDR saturation problem.
I might go back to my DreamScreenTv 4K for my bias lights.
I’m experiencing the same problem with dolby vision series. Just hd series give much better color. Will there be an update?
Yeah, I tried switching that off but it didn't work. And my cables are all the official cables that came with the Lytmi Neo, PS5 and Series X, plus I tried other top quality cables. The only work around that I have found so far is to plug my games consoles into my soundbar and my soundbar into the Lytmi Neo. That solves the issues with Xbox, apart from the HDR issue, that still remains.
Saw a review on this the other day (before placing my order), and for the Xbox, some of the weird issues according to the reviewer, were resolved by turning off the adaptive refresh rate in the XBox. Apparently this isn't an issue with the Playstation, due to the fact it doesn't change refresh rates. Also, as an installer (in a previous life) I strongly recommend folks check the quality of their cables from 'womb to tomb', as it were. (From the AV component to the Lytmi box, and from the box to the TV/Soundbar) Can't begin to tell you all of the times I've seen quirks happen in AV products, due to someone grabbing cables with varying specs. (Not saying this is the case, just recommend double checking, just to be safe :)
I am experiencing these exact same issues and I appreciate @Matty UK 's diligence in getting these replication steps to the Lytmi team.
My order number is LM3127. I understand this is an "early adpoter" type of product, but no Dolby Vision and consistent issues across the board indicates poor quality assurance.
Please indicate a roadmap to solutions for these and others' aforementioned issues.
The colours started to appear on the wrong side of the screen again today. To correct it you need to go into the Lytmi App, select your device, settings and redo the instillation site setting. Certainly not ideal but hopefully this can be patched soon.
Thanks for the pictures and video provided. For the issues you have mentioned, our R&D team has been working for the soltuion.
Maybe you can try：HDR should be set to "Adaptive" instead of "Always".
HDMI2.0 does not support turning on HDR when the 4K 60Hz color space is RGB. It only supports turning on HDR in the YUV4:2:2 color mode. This means that a certain screen color surface needs to be sacrificed in exchange for a higher refresh rate.
We are working hard to improve it and we would provide the solutions after confirmation.
Many thanks again for your supports!
I've since tried a different approach by connecting my Samsung Q950A Dolby Atmos soundbar to the Lytmi Neo Box and then the Lytmi Neo Box to the TV and my PS5 and Series X connected to the soundbar. The PS5 works this way in SDR but HDR the colours are just white. The Xbox works in SDR but says my TV doesn't support HDR. My soundbar does have HDR pass through. And this way I have gained Dolby Atmos.
As you can see it's back to telling me that my TV doesn't support HDR when it does. It's a flagship TV and HDR works perfectly fine without the Lytmi Neo connected. HDR is on within the Xbox Series X, and the Input signal plus is on the HDMI inputs to allow HDR.
Flickering and no colours etc on Xbox Series X. I can confirm that HDR is turned on via the console and via the TV. All 4 HDMI ports have HDR enabled. This footage is actually the best I've seen it on Xbox. It gets much more erratic than shown here.
I've also found another issue. Every now and then the colours will appear on the wrong side of the screen. As you can see by the bright green ghost on the right of the screen. He's on the right but the green light is on the left. The setup was correct I double checked. It eventually corrected itself after I turned it off and on again.
Hi. Here is a video showing HDR on VS HDR off. As you can see the colours are just white when HDR is on and correct and vibrant when HDR is off. Yes HDR is all setup correctly, all 4 HDMI ports have HDR enabled.
Thanks for the detailed feedback.
It is best to have video feedback so we could better provide suggestions.
Then confirm whether the HDR mode of the TV is on. And turn off the dynamic range matching. In addition, could you kindly try to synchronize the PS5 directly to the TV without going through the box to see whether it can dispaly normally?
It also may be because the Xbox HDMI cable is plugged in first, and then the TV HDMI.
Please unplug the power supply of Neo sync box for 10 seconds, and then power it on again.
Could you attach a small video of sync box connections and LED strips?
We would try to figure out the problem and better provide suggetions for you.
