Advantiv™ EDID Editor version 0.41


This program was designed to be an integral part of AVES software however it is a full stand-alone EDID editor able to read, create and write the standard VESA block along with multiple CEA blocks.  It is compliant with CEA861E, EEDIDrAr1 and HDMI specification 1.4b.



Run the included .msi file to install the program.  I recommend using the default location if AVES is intended to be loaded later.  The installer will add a shortcut to the desktop and insert a short cut to Program -> Analog Devices -> AVES


This program requires .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.  The installer will attempt to install it however if that fails then the Profile can be found at:


This tool is provided AS-IS.


If bugs are found or potential improvements noted please post a comment so I can improve/fix the program and upgrade it for future users.
