10G symmetric but you don't need 10G in both directions, so there is some repurposing going on.Good question because 10Gig is the limit on CAT7, if so something special must happening via compression
Thanx for the suggestion, well noted.Got a question for you guys. In the CEC packets, does it contain a value for the current volume?
When we bypass our receivers, we lose the onscreen overlay of the receiver. Most TV's will overlay a Volume Up and Volume Down graphic -- but not the value.
Since you have built the OSD capability, if that data were available, would be an awesome feature to place an OSD of volume level whenever CEC volume command is received.
Please post back if it helped or not.I am going to turn off the hdmi video passthrough feature on my Marantz AV8802A. This feature allows video (no sound) to be shown with the inputs on the TX-Central unit without the Marantz being powered on. Maybe this has something to do with the constant signal dropping on the RX unit.
I will send this to dev. Can you please post the config file for the rx and tx units here.I haven't had any signal drops from the RX unit ever since turning off the HDMI Video Passthrough feature on my Marantz preamp. It was a major annoyance after going through many different cables but in the end, it was all user error.
There is small thing that has been bugging me. On the OLED display on the RX unit would sometimes turn on by itself and doesn't turn off/fade until I go into the configuration, select OLED Display On, and then select Off.
Please post the length of the hdmi cables you will need.Hi,
I am trying to get the projector game and I think the maestro is what I need but just to be sure, I'll describe my use case,
As of today, in the living room, I have:
- Apple TV connected to the TV
- Sonos ARC connected to the TV via arc
i would like to switch to the following case:
- Apple TV connected to the Maestro (or good alternatives)
- Maestro sending the feed via hdmi to the TV
- Maestro sending the feed to the projector (via a router on the way and CAT 6 cables)
- Maestro sending the sound to the Sonos ARC via optical (no atmos then).
Does that sound correct? Would the router create any issue or should I have a direct cat 7 cable between the RX and TX?
Is there any way I can extract the atmos on the way? I don't want Atmos bad enough to buy an arcana but if there is a new Maestro with earc output coming this year, I could wait a few months.
I think that's it. If I forgot, just let me know, I'll fix.
Thanks in advance.
I ordered the Arcana which I should get in a few days.Please post the length of the hdmi cables you will need.
But you cannot use cat6 from a router. The cat6 cables need to be direct from the maestro rx unti to the tx unit.
No you cannot get atmos without the arcana.
But we may have other cheaper options depending on your setup.
Will the tv and projector be in the same room?
HD Fury, I need a little help with my setup. I'm having sporatic HDMI handshake issues and something is preventing me from getting full dolby HD signals from my apple TV and sometimes my blu-ray player. I've played with some settings and got the bitstream to be passed through the maestro, but I can only get dolby digital signals from my appleTV. If I don't convert to dolby digital in the appleTV, I only get 2 channel LPCM.
I would firstly disable power save on the maestro rx.
I would also pick an edid to use instead of automix to deal with the audio issue.
Any edid with the full sound in the file name will be a good choice.
Any issues upload the txt file from the maestro and attach. As posting the contents makes it hard to follow.
Post a link to the exact Classe unit you have so we can review specs.Have any of you guys had been successful in using the TX as a switch and extracting HDMI audio from an appleTV 4K for delivery to a older 1.4 processor/receiver? I can get uncompressed audio from my blu-ray players, but something is causing the appleTV to give me either 2 channel LPCM, dolby digital multi-channel, or no audio at all. HDFury on Discord wasn't any help after a lengthy session today. They were trying to get me to settle for dolby digital, telling me my classe CT-SSP can't handle 7.1 audio (which it will with 4k bluray. They told me to search google for an EDID. I though the HD Fury products could manage this so I could get the better audio out of the appleTV 4K. I'm getting 4K HDR 444 video to my RS3000 from all sources. Any thoughts/help would be greatly appreciated?
