I don't have an SP3 so I can't say for sure. Your quote above says
Quote:
that owners of the SP3 who have good HDMI cables have been able to pass Dolby Vision with the new board.
At any rate, it starts with the cable. If the cable can't carry the signal, you will have difficulties.

Default Video from SP3

If you're supposed to get video from the HDMI output, I never have and I've tried a number of times. So HDMI A/V goes from my Ayre disc player directly to the projector, HDMI audio goes to the SP3, analog stereo to the Ayre preamp.

My SP3 has the HSR-72Q HDMI board and will only lock if it is connected to a source (a blu ray player) and a screen (my TV). It seems your SP3 is not connected to a screen and still locks. Which HDMI board do you use?

I connect HDMI from an Ayre DX-5 DSD disc player to HDMI 1 of the SP3, connect HDMI out from the SP3 to the projector, and balanced front LR analog from the SP3 to a by-pass input of an Ayre KX-5 Twenty preamp. No video, but HDMI video sent from the DX-5 directly to the projector is excellent. HDMI audio sent from through the SP3 to the KX-5 sounds nearly as good as stereo analog from the DX-5 to the KX-5.

I've had the SP3 for years and have no idea what HDMI unit is in it. My only reason for wanting to use HDMI video output from the SP3 is to pass video from a Cox cable box.

What projector are you using? Can it accept Dolby Vision?

For stereo, analog goes from an Ayre disc player directly to an Ayre preamp with a bass manager between it and a pair of subs. For surround, HDMI goes from the disc player to the SP3 that returns front LR to Ayre bypass. I want to add LFE from the SP3 to a third sub. In the SP3 menu, I've set all speakers to small except the front LR. Should I set EXTRA BASS to on? Does the SP3 LFE output provide low-pass filtering or do I set that at the third sub?

The answers to my previous question seems to be (1) run the front LR full range, XTRA BASS in Bryston parlance, so the three HGS-15s are used rather than only the one running LFE, and (2) turn off the crossover of the HGS-15 that's running LFE so it passes all the information in the LFE channel.
