Question for you guys (I think this is my first post on this thread):
I'm looking at finally pulling the trigger on a Radiance Pro 4444 or 4446 to go with my Trinnov Altitude 32/24. However, I still have the original Altitude HDMI card that only had Input 1 as HDMI 1.4 with (partially) HDCP 2.2 and a single HDCP 2.2 compatible output with Output 2. Wondering whether I will have to upgrade the HDMI card in the Altitude assuming the following....
Three potential UHD sources (Oppo 203, Roku Ultra, HTPC with a 4K/HDCP 2.2 NVidia card), maybe a fourth that's Apple TV 4K
Lumagen has either three or four 18 Ghz inputs (TBD
), and one 18 Ghz output
6' 18 Ghz compatible cable from sources to Lumagen, and similar to my JVC RS600
My question: if I'm sending 18 Ghz (presumably) video output to the JVC RS600, and audio output from the Lumagen to the Altitude, is there any reason I can't just send HDMI 1.4 compatible output to the Altitude or will I break HDCP 2.2 and cause issues? And do I really need 18 Ghz video output to an JVC RS600 given my sources, or can I get by with 9 Ghz video output?
I could, of course, upgrade the Altitude to the newer board, decide which of my inputs are going to be 9 Ghz or 18 Ghz in the upcoming software update or the beta (if my Roku and HTPC are just doing 4K streaming; do I even need or want them to have 18 Ghz input?), and having a single video output from the Altitude to the Lumagen that's HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 compatible. However, can I get by with the older HDMI I/O card, and save the $700 or so on the card towards calibration, or do I really want to swap out the I/O card as part of the cost of upgrading my video?
Thanks in advance...just trying to avoid breaking what's not broken, so pardon the relatively simple question.
