Hey all, appealing to your knowledge for help please. I have a Pioneer receiver that is displaying just fine to my Vizio TV via the HDMI Extenders (Monoprice model # 6532) with a 75 ft run of dual Cat 6 cables. The input port on the TV is port #5
which is 4K @ 60hz possible. The sources have been my xbox One and xfinity x1 connecting via HDMI to the receiver. The receiver is a SC-65 which is an elite and can handle 1.4a and does 4K "pass through".
I built a HTPC with a gigabyte mobo w/z170 chipset board. I am running onboard graphics (HD530). The HTPC is fully functional via DVI and a small LCD monitor, and can display directly via HDMI to a 720p LG that is not the main TV. When I connect it to the receiver and run it to the Vizio, I get a "no signal" graphic on the TV. Keep in mind, my A/V closet is 75 ft from the theater and directly connecting the HTCP to the TV is not really an option.
After reading through multiple manuals, I think its a combination of the receiver and the extenders. The receiver cannot down compress a signal from certain sources (video compression) - in this case the HTPC. The extenders are rated for 1.2.
Is it logical to think that the xifinity and xbox both are not outputting at 1.4? Ive tried multiple hdmi's on the receiver and the TV. I'm concerned that I will buy the new HDbaseT extenders and that they will not make a difference. Is a dedicated video card the answer or will I still be stuck with a legacy receiver restricting the data via "pass through". Do I need both the new HDbaseT extenders and a vid card? I've found others online with this same chipset not having an issue with 4K @ 27hz. Is it the TV? I guess Im grasping at straws.
Lastly, did you see the most recent Walking Dead? How bout that!!! 'Appreciate your help and feedback.
