HDMI CEC-Less adapter?

Would this work like this as I’ve only read about these type of adapters the other week.

I despise the use of HDMI-CEC or whatever marketing term your equipment calls it but I do like the ARC feature. It seems like all of my equipment requires me to have HDMI-CEC in order to even use ARC but I use a Harmony remote control so I do not need or want to use any control features.

ALthough I can individually turn of just the Power On/Off feature on my receiver but I still think it messes with my use of a activity based remote.

Will one of these HDMI CEC-Less adpaters allow me to still use ARC but it gets rid of any speck of HDMI Control feature?

Receiver : Pioneer Elite SC-LX701
Main & Center Speakers : Phase Technology PC 3.5, & Surrounds
Amplifiers : Emotiva UPA-1 Monoblocks, SVS SB3000 Subwoofer
MonsterPower HTS5100, Harmony Elite Remote
TV & Sources: Sony 75” 900F, Bluesound Node 2, Xbox One & Apple TV4K

The reviews are mixed. Most of the time the Lindy adapters should work to block the CEC signals so that you can use ARC. All you can do is try and see if it meets your needs. Keep in mind that some systems require the use of CEC for ARC to work so just experiment and see how well it works.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.
