yes, after playing with the unit some more i found that turning off the 1080p out solves the downscaling prob for the 4k out, a built-in 4k switch (not splitter)... one thing i couldn't figure out tho (probably not possible), is how to display video from the main hdmi output while simultaneously listening to music through the main amp from an optical input (audio 1), i.e. no video audio... i know this can be done using zones but i need to do it from the main zone (i think?) in order to achieve my odd setup (commercial environment) as follows:
- same video to 2 display ( a 4k display and a 1080p display), no video audio from main speakers.
- music to amp/speakers.
- video audio to headphones.
i can come close by:
- main zone input: audio 1 (optical input) - music plays through amp/speakers.
- hdmi 2 out input: av1, av2 or av3 - video displays on the hdmi 2 out screen.
- zone 2 analog audio to rf headphone transmitter - hdmi 2 input plays through headphones.
what i can't figure out is how to also display video from the main hdmi out with the rest of the av configuration remaining the same.
why on earth would anyone want this kind of set up? again, commercial (restaurant) environment - it allows diners to enjoy ambient music through the main speakers while kiddies can watch video and listen to the video audio through headphones, customers love it, and it has become easy and cost effective to do given the relatively new mplc umbrella license.
