Sky Q Silver: 4k, HDCP 2.2, no HDR
Panasonic UB390 UHD Blu-ray Player: 4K, HDR, HDCP 2.2
What I want to do is as follows. (all connections are HDMI, no optical etc.)
Connect the HD Fury Integral to the TV HDMI 2 port with deep colour enabled, and ARC
Connect both the Sky Q and Panasonic sources to the two HD Fury Integral inputs
Connect the Arcam AVR to one of the HD Fury Integral outputs.
So, the integral would act as a 4K, HDR compatible switch, and also send either the HDMI audio from the Sky/Panasonic to the AVR with a 4K SDR or HDR picture going to the TV, or when using just the TV (for things like Netflix, Amazon) get ARC audio sent from the TV to the AVR.
Is this possible, and if so how?
I can get the Integral to act as a straight switch, and get 4K in HDR/SDR no problem, but as soon as I attach the AVR I can't get 4K pictures anymore, and can't get ARC to work at all.
No it's not possible because Integral is a splitter/matrix and you need a scaler or audio output only device with full hdmi sound, please refer to my reply just above: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/37-vid...l#post53876129
To get this working, you need Integral to split UHD/HDR, and then you need UHD/HDR scaler to downscale the signal going to the AVR, since your AVR doesn't support it !
The only case where integral can do the job alone for UHD/HDR signal is when the AVR is HDCP1.4 but still capable of 600MHz, so no downscaling needed.
But your AVR doesn't accept anything above 300MHz, so you need INTEGRAL to split signal and you need Linker at the output going to AVR to convert the UHD/HDR into FHD for AVR to accept it.
This is something you can do with one device using upcoming Vertex ! Currently you need Integral + Linker for same results.
We also have another device dedicated to this purpose as you can read from the linked above post.
This being said, ARC is another issue that can be solved, so here you go for that:
The ARC port on integral is TOP output, so make sure you connect TV ARC port to INTEGRAL ARC PORT (top output), once this is done, using GUI or Android/iOS APP or IR, change CEC ID from Video processor (default) to Audio System and you are done and can listen arc sound !
However, keep in mind that ARC sound comes into integral and it's then available on the optical out, so you still need to drive optical from integral out to your AVR !
