3D is a tough sell, but I'd hate for it to disappear completely. To really take advantage of it the cost of entry is just too high.

I don't plan on measuring and I'm not sure about Zone2, but anecdotally at least I do have a 75 ft active HDMI on Monitor2 that is passing 1080p 3D.

Thanks. I went through your guide previously and it is very helpful, but didn't solve my issue. I'll probably just run optical at this point. The only times I need return audio are for Dolby Vision...

Earlier in the thread I said I would report back on my new receiver, the Samsung UHD player and the m70. I'm still passing 4K HDR without problems with a Denon x4200 now in the mix from the Samsung...

I've had a receiver in between the 805 and x4200 so my memory isn't the best but I can't say I'm missing it even if it was a solid receiver.

It's probably not supposed to. I was able to get it to work on the Vizio M70 but it took a number of tries. It was saying I didn't have any eligible items in my cart before it worked.
