I really cannot as I've been sitting on the side lines in regards to 4K. Been an early adopter all my life but, I finally had enough with all the hdmi madness. I'm waiting on 4K and OLED to mature a bit more before I jump in this time. I have a couple of nice plasmas to get me by until then. And I'm living a pretty much glitch free life with perfectly acceptable 1080p. Good luck with your search.

Sources available in Zone2?

I was trying to listen to Spotify on my Nvidia Shield through Zone2 (speakers on my deck) yesterday and could not figure for the life of me how to do it. I can listen to Spotify through the app/input on the SC-79 but, it's very buggy and unreliable. I had to restart everything twice before giving up totally. Anyway, is it not possible to do what I'm attempting?

What outputs are available on Nvidia Shield? I seem to remember that the Pioneers would only play analog sources out to zone 2.

He was a bit vague on that. Would imagine you either go through the headphone jack or BT adapter to analog in.

Sorry about the lack of info. I have the Shield connected via HDMI. It doesn't have an analog output. I'm going to assume after googling this issue that this avr doesn't pass digital to zone 2. From what I can gather that didn't become an available feature until a year or two after this model came out.

So, the general consensus is; this receiver does not support HDR even when in passthrough becuase the HDMI ports predate HDMI 2.2?
