Thanks for the info.
Where did you find this HDCP version support information? I could not find it anywhere in manual.
btw, HDCP version 2.0 came out in 2008 (Check Wikipedia), so I am suspicious if this 2013 receiver supports only HDCP 1/3/1.4 (?).
Update on some more testing: When I ran Amazon app from Samsung 4k Player (connected to the DN1040 receiver) and ran 4K HDR show (The Grand Tour), it played in on Samsung 8 series 4K TV just fine. However, the resolution was only 1080p, not 4K HDR. YouTube app tests from Samsung 4k player were inconclusive. The user-uploaded free 4K videos - most were played at 1080p res and others seem to indicate 4k resolution, however, picture color was impacted. Upscale issue? Note sure what was going on.
Speculation: So, it might actually be supporting some form of HDCP 2.x. With my understanding of how HDCP 2.2 works, if ALL devices/cables are not HDCP 2.2 compliant in the chain, the picture will NOT show at all.
As I am able to see the picture through my A/V configuration, this is encouraging news about the receiver.
Additionally, I am surprised that no one here has discussed this issue so far. Perhaps, people with this receiver here are not into 4K yet (?).
