It will pass UHD -- just not HDCP 2.2 protected UHD (that pretty much all but YouTube are covered by).Well that sucks. It won't pass 4K content like it advertises.
This is a situation where it doesn't pay dividends to assume that the cables are substandard. HDMI uses the cables differently to achieve its speed and if you bought high-speed cables before, they may well qualify now. It is a little like when everyone assumed that CAT6 would be required for Gigabit but it turns out that isn't the case by a long shot.Of course, I'll need to swap out all my 10 year-old HDMI cables since I doubt any of them are anywhere close to HDMI 2.0 compatible.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread. Neutron, were you ever able to find a receiver that did what you needed?
I picked up an Onkyo TX-NR656 for under $400 at Crutchfield. It may be last years model, but I'm really impressed with the network capabilities (I like it better than the Denon AVR I set up for a friend) and it does all the video conversion to HDMI so we can still support the older technology in our vacation home. The recent download added Chromecast capabilities, too, in addition to AirPlay and Bluetooth. Plus, three of the HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.2 and HDMI passthrough when powered off.
I just bought the exact same receiver for my new home. I left behind my older AVR and speakers in my divorce. Needed a new AVR and speaker setup to go with my LG OLED.Hey, it's been almost a year since I last resurrected this thread, so why not do it again? Our new Denon AVR-X3400H IN-Command arrived today. Denon reduced the price to $400 off MSRP (must be making room for the AVR-X3500H) so I pulled the trigger. Step 3 on my totally replacing everything with 4K HDR Technology (Step 1 was the replacing the Vip 722k with a Hopper 3, Step 2 was getting an ?TV 4K to replace the 3rd gen ?TV).
DVI is mostly extinct. VGA is on the downward slope. Most high-zoot display cards have one HDMI and one or more DisplayPort outs now. Laptops that have video outputs are increasingly featuring miniature DisplayPort jacks rather than HDMI.DisplayPort is all but extinct, isn’t it?
I think they're hoping that everyone is going to lug around a USB C breakout box and connect to TVs that way. That said, it is surely better than the WiDi systems that Intel offered.Odd about the laptops. Seems they don’t see much value in connecting to TVs.
