Well for me, I am 0/2. I tried 2 different HDBT solutions with the AVR Key, and neither give me any sound output. I spent hours troubleshooting with my monoprice matrix switch and no combination I could find works. The new HDBT solution I bought doesn't really have any way to be configured... it's a simple converter with no settings to modify, and it doesn't work either. So either I have very bad luck, or the claim that the AVR Key has been tested with numerous HDBT devices and confirmed working is not true. I asked a simple question if I could be provided with the model number of a HDBT device that is available via retail that I could buy right now that is confirmed to work with AVR Key, and now I've gotten no response.
I no longer feel like doing R&D for the device. I think you need to retract your claim that AVR Key should work no problem at all with HDBT, as that is the claim that got me to buy your device, and it has been proven false. Unless I can be convinced that HDFury is working to resolve this issue, I am going to return the device, and I will have to leave a negative review on the product, as I've wasted a fair bit of time and money and gotten nowhere. Sorry for the frank response, but I am absolutely frustrated, and the radio silence from HDFury after I reported that a second HDBT device is not able to send audio is what drove me to make this post.
Because we did not reply on a sunday out of so many others ? seriously ... what kind of support are you getting from your MATRIX HDBT or than new HDBT company ? if any at all.
Anyway, please make a decision, whether or not you are willing to get this working or not, because if you are decided to get it working and ready for concrete test and report, we will purchase this device you mentioned and ensure AVRkey works for it.
Now if you want to go further please confirm the following:
SHIELD (what resolution, what sound format set ?) > AVRKEY > UHD/HDR TO TV and AUDIO TO > TX > CAT CABLE > RX > AVR
Set AVRkey AUDIO slide to stereo and repower/reboot every device in the chain before trying out, make sure Nvidia shield is set as stereo (it should automatically set itself at stereo after reboot, confirm this point too)
If you don't get stereo to your AVR with the above, we will buy same device. please report back on this and your motivation.
