590 with UHD TV?

I have a AVR-590 and will soon upgrade to a 4K TV. While I will like upgrade the Denon to one of the newer models designed for 4K functionality I want to know how to connect the 590 to a 4K TV. Will the 1.3a HDMI's on the 590 function with the newer 2.0 HDMI on say a Samsung UHD set or will I need to go optical for the sound?

The 590 is not ARC capable, so yes, you'll have to connect the TV's optical audio output ---> 590 if you want to pass the TV's smart app audio to the 590. Also, you'll need to connect a dual 4k BDP with one HDMI (video) --> TV and the other HDMI (audio) --> 590.

Thanks, JD. In the interim (not using any 4K sources) would I still have to set up the optical as a bypass for the ARC?

HDMI(ARC) = Audio Return Channel

This feature only refers to passing the smart app audio from the TV ---> AVR; however, both the TV and the AVR must be ARC capable for the feature to work. As your AVR is not ARC capable, your only option is to use TV (optical) --> AVR unless of course you don't want to pass any audio from the TV back to the AVR.
