Digital Audio Extractors. HDMI Versions, HDCP and Newer TVs?
My wife and I are thinking of heading over to the local Costco tomorrow and grabbing a TV upgrade for the family room. Then it struck me: We're using a digital audio extractor on the HDMI connection between our Amazon Fire TV and the TV so we can get digital audio over to our legacy Yamaha receiver. I discovered, quite by accident, that this thing appears to be stripping HDCP from the HDMI stream, because, after I installed it, we started getting digital audio from the TV when the Fire TV was selected on the TV.
I don't really care about that (even though I feel that's the way these things should work), because I can get digital audio directly from the extractor to the receiver.
What I am concerned about is whether that extractor being there, and stripping HDCP, is likely to cause issues with a newer TV? I'd really hate to haul the thing all the way home just to have to box it up and return it.
Thanks in advance.
