Later today, I will be connecting a new UB900 to my Vizio M75-C1 4K TV and new Pioneer SC-LX801 receiver. My original plan was to connect the UB900's main HDMI output to the receiver and then the receiver to HDMI port #5
on the Vizio TV. Port #5
on the Vizio is [email protected]
4:2:2. However, I think I've read that non 4K playback should go through a different port. The Vizio's HDMI ports 1 & 2 are [email protected]
(not sure if they are also 4:2:2).
I purchased the receiver specifically to get a 4K compatible model. But now I'm thinking that I should run an HDMI cable directly from the UB900 to the Vizio's HDMI #5
4:2:2) and run a second cable from the UB900 to the receiver.
I'm sure the answers are in this very long thread. I've done a bit of searching and can't find it immediately. If someone could throw me a bone, it would be appreciated...
Will my new Pioneer SC-LX801 do all of the necessary upscaling/conversion so that I can run EVERYTHING through the receiver and then to HDMI #5
4:2:2) on the Vizio? I'll also have three standard HD sources (HD DVD player, Mac mini home theater PC, and Channel Master OTA DVR) connected to the receiver. Will all of that play okay through the receiver to HDMI #5
on the TV?
It would be better for me if I can put ALL sources through the receiver. On movie nights in the Booth Bijou Garage Theater, I used the same equipment. I simply connect the HDMI output of the A/V receiver to the projector in the garage. If I have to run a separate HDMI cable from the UB900 then it will defeat my ability to easily switch sources in the garage.
If running HD DVD, Mac mini, and Channel Master DVR through the receiver to the [email protected]
port on the TV is a bad idea, then now much 4K Blu-ray quality will I lose if I simply use one of the TV's [email protected]
Man, this stuff is very confusing!
