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.

 

Installation:

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.
