Using my sr7009 with the xbox one s ultra uhd blu-ray player?
I recently purchased an sr7009. It's great but i'm having an issue using it with the xbox one s ultra uhd blu-ray player.
I cannot figure out how to get 4k HDR and dolby atmos at the same time from the uhd blu-ray player that's inside the xbox one s. Is this at all possible?
Interestingly, i can get either one to work by itself - just not both simultaneously!
If i connect my xbox directly to my TV and use the hdmi audio return channel (ARC) to feed audio to my sr7009, then i can play a uhd blu-ray and get 4k HDR on my TV. But to get dolby atmos sound from the xbox, i need to enable audio bitstreaming, and if i do that i get no sound through this configuration via HDMI ARC.
If, on the other hand, i connect my xbox hdmi out to my sr7009 (and then connect my sr7009 to my TV), i can get dolby atmos sound from uhd blu-ray discs played on the xbox one s, if i enable audio bitstreaming (this is a new feature for the xbox based on a new software update for it). But, with this setup, the hdmi video signal to the TV is only 1080p (instead of 4k) and there is no HDR either. I'm no expert, but from what i've read, i gather that this video issue is because the sr7009 support neither HDCP 2.2 which is needed for 4k source material (more important?) nor HDMI 2.0a which is needed for 4k (60Hz) HDR.
So it seems that when playing a UHD blu-ray i can (depending on my configuration) get 4k HDR video OR dolby atmos audio but not both! Is there a work around? Can I just split the HDMI out from by xbox one s (i.e. my blu-ray player) with a splitter cable or splitter box of some sort and send on input to my TV and one input to my sr7009?? I know that most stand-alone UDH blu-ray players have two HDMI outputs: 1 for video and 1 for audio (presumably to alleviate issues like the one i'm having). Or any other solution?
