Hello and thank you for taking a few minutes or more to review this inquiry albeit you're in a similar situation and seeking an answer or you have the answers to offer.
General relevant setup:
-Pioneer Sc-75 which supports 4K/30 HDMI 1.4.
-Vizio PX-Quantum (? Higher end version) with HDR10/Dolby V HDMI 2.0 4k/60
-Nvidia Shield Pro 2019 Hdmi 2.0 with all necessary format support
[Side note: until Nvidia gets this ****ty coding in order I do NOT recommend acquiring the Shield. It has potential, the AI-upcaling is VERY good for animated/Pixar type and pretty good for standard movies, but in the meantime, f-you Nvidia. Way too many headaches.]
I want HDR 4k 2160p getting to my TV and all lossless formats getting to my receiver via HDMI.
I have tried this unit with limited success: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P5W7BQ3..._SCV2EbVY8D5FB
Problem is that device keeps trying to downscale to 1080. Under certain conditions (I can identify then if its useful) I can get 4k/30 but it usually reverts to 1080 by the time I get to kodi or every time I restart the system which is annoying as hell. Its also very slow to switch sources during playback and many times causes the shield to hang or needing a restart even.
It also will not pass HDR as I think its removed during the downscale process to match the hdmi 1.4 of the receiver. This is a major downfall I'm not okay with.
I found this device: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DBB31HP..._05V2EbE425KGM
Supposedly it will fix the issue and achieve my goals but the price I simply cannot swallow. I'd sooner buy a broken SC-89 and pull the HDMI board and hope they swap into the sc-75 though Pioneer couldn't answer if the SC-85/87/89 series with hdmi 2.0 will support HDR.
1. Can someone please recommend a non-outrageously priced device that will send lossless formats to my HDMI 1.4 AVR device while sending 4k/60 with Hdr10/Dolby vision to my TV?
*Important note: I do not have individual channel inputs via RCA, so those devices wont work.
2. The Hdmi ports on my unit are quite loose...okay really loose, I bought unit broken. Any suggestions or devices to secure them better? I do have a 3d printer if anyone knows some support structures/fasteners.
3. Probably need a separate thread for this but does anyone know if a newer HDMI boards from pioneer will swap to older generations, ie an SC-85 to an SC-75. I could loosely find the answer but not without extensively looking into the schematics and even then im not sure how the firmware will like it. If anyone has tried this please let me know. Only major difference between the devices is Hdmi boards 1.4 vs 2.0 and Atmos support. Perhaps the Hdmi in conjunction with the front panel display which has the controller processors would work?
Rant: I hope HDCP/HDMI standards personnel (the greedy people at the top) get slapped in the face by a BBC, releatedly, unless that's their thing then i guess I hope it never happens? All the money you're forcing people to throw away is shameful. You are a drain on our natural resources and quite literally the time in our lives we spend working to buy all these replacements.
