Hasn't HDMI.org collected enough money from OEM's, Licensed members, and the end customer. To produce a robust, simple, and a plug and play leading technology solution? Why don't the OEM's support another solution, and stop paying HDMI.org there licensing fee and wasted profits? Why don't the OEM's send a message with there pocket book. Sounds to me like HDMI.org needs a wake up call.
Is there a alternative connector plug/play technology that meets the needs of 4k uhd, arc equivalent, and all the latest audio codecs along with future codecs for the next 10 years? Don't get me wrong, I just dropped a jaw dropping investment in my home theater to be future proof, and the last thing I want to do is sell it all and upgrade to a new plug/play technology. Just to have it all work together harmoniously.
I wounder if we could file a class action lawsuit against HDMI? Not saying this for a financial gain! But the amount of time and money I have invested in my home theater. I am absolutely appalled that it is not working smoothly together. Which is not cool!
Flagship AVR, Flagship cables, essentially Flagship TV. Your telling me with this kind of investment, and I have problems. Not cool, and not acceptable! Something has to be done, and this is not acceptable to me!
Delete HDCP crap ware. How and the hell does the movie system have any right to tell me as a consumer how my devices work together and communicate, actually more like don't communicate together. I followed all the recommendations. Did a hell of a lot of research, and it is not working properly by designed. How is this my problem when I just spent over $10k on my home theater. Thanks a lot HDMI.org, Thanks a lot OEM's, Thanks a lot Movie industry. Because I am very quickly being turned off from this hobby!
