If you plan to game and especially online competitive game, then input lag should matter to you, if that's the case ,then running signal thru AVR will add noticeable input lag. I'm just doing recommendation/advise here, you do what you want with it, of course.
The dreamscreen site is: dreamscreentv.com.
I checked the manual, there is not really a spec list available besides the list I posted.
To be honest there are a lot of issues with the dreamscreen, their forum is full of complaints. And I wonder if the provided spec list is 100% true.
What I find strange is that:
Xbox One X - DreamScreen 4K - Denon AVR x2300W - LG OLED 55C8 : works without issues. Full 4K HDR, no real problems.
As soon as I hang the DreamScreen behind the receiver it causes issues with the Xbox One X. Black screen on OLED and you see that the receiver is receiving signal with constant interruptions.
If I switch from Xbox One input to Humax TV decoder, you see and hear that the receiver tries to establish a connection, after couple yes/no/yes, it works. Resolution 1080i.
On the dreamscreen forums i’ve read that people had positive results with either HD Fury Linker or Vertex between the receiver and DreamScreen.
I’ve also contacted DreamScreen support and they said the following about an upcoming product that would limit the issues they have with DreamScreen working nicely with receivers:
“the DreamScreen solo has all the features of a 4K except it does not have a passthrough. This means is does not have an additional splitter that needs to process the DHCP and cascade it. It is specifically designed to work with receivers that have two outputs.”
Seeing that there is no ETA i’m Currently trying to figure out how to get the DreamScreen 4K working in my current setup.
I do not really worry about input lag seeing i’ve Been gaming like this for years.
Thanks again for the replies.
