It's definetelly the receiver if I bypass it using the same cables. FireTV works great! I will check the HDMI inputs.

I'm not sure about your specific model receiver, but on many Onkyos not all of the HDMI inputs are 4K compliant. So I'd check that or swap input ports with the one you say is working.

TX-RZ820 - it supposed to be 4K compliant. The message I get is the the TV is not HDCP2.2 compliat. So maybe the out signal plus a longer cable don't work well together. Again, the cable is active and the direct connection from FireTV to the projector via same set of cables works beautifully.

is 4K complaint HDCP 2.2 complaint?
Because my Onkyo receiver can handle 4K on all it's inputs. But only three inputs have HDCP 2.2. Which is required to be able to watch UHD content with streaming services and UHD BD players.
So I use several 5 port, 18Gbps HDMI switches to accommodate all my UHD devices that are used with devices that need HDCP 2.2. While my other UHD devices that don't need HDCP 2.2 and my HD devices are connected to the other HDMI inputs on my Onkyo.

Does anyone have an issue with the Plex app not resuming partially watched content?

It will only start at the beginning of the given episode, and does not present the option to resume.

Thanks.

Major User Error - the projector was hooked up to the hdmi in that was not HDCP 2.2 compliat - who'd have thought the projector hdmi2 was not HDCP 2.2 compliant!

I guess it's not different than my Onkyo receiver. Only HDMi inputs 1, 2, and 3 are HDCP 2.2 compliant. While the other five HDMI inputs are not.

I was talking about the IN of the projector. So Onkyo reported the "TV" is not HDCP compliant and was right. The HDMI 2 in on the projector is not compliant, HDMI1 is...

When I play TrueHD/DTS-HDMA 7.1 tracks on FireStick, o Onkyo I see PCM.

- does FireStick support these formats and outputing PCM?
- or is Kodi is decoding HD to PCM
- is there any difference in audio quality in PCM vs HD bitstreaming?

Technically no the Fire Stick does not support any lossless audio at all, just Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus (including the lossy Atmos layer on certain content) only. It even lacks support for standard DTS.

Is it possible to stream 4K mkv files from UHD blu-ray rips on the Firestick 4k?

I got 2 of the sticks recently (not for this purpose) but decided to see if it was possible. I have files on hard drives connected to a couple media players on my network (one hdd attached to a Dune Smart D1, and 5 attached to a Zappiti One HDR). All the files on the Dune are 1080p files.

I installed Kodi on a firestick, and tried playing some movies. 1080p files from the Zappiti played fine, but files from the Dune had buffering issues. I figured this was due to a combination of the Dune being limited to 100 Mbps (which I guess the Firestick is as well?) and the use of wireless. So, I added some 4k mkvs on the zappiti to the library and tried to play those. I had the same buffering issues as I had with files from the Dune.

Is the issue likely with the Firestick, the wifi, the Mbps limitation, or some kind of processing limitation somewhere?

I can stream my 1:1 UHD BD/HDR rips from Plex with the 4K FireTV sticks. But the FireTV 4K sticks downscale to 1080P for output for some reason. So they actually stream in UHD/HDR but output in 1080P/HDR. And the audio is transcoded since the 4k FireTV stick can't bitstream the lossless audio from the UHD BD rips. So I'll have 7.1 DD+ output from the TrueHD/Atmos tracks.

But since my 4K FireTV sticks can get around 200Mb/s throughput over wireless AC with my low end AC Access Points, they can even Directplay my very high bitrate(120+ Mb/s) UHD test files with no buffering issues. But still I have the issue with it downscaling to 1080P/HDR before output.

So since they downscale the UHD streams to 1080P, I don't really use them to stream my local UHD content. Not to mention the inability to bitstream the lossless audio.

Hey guys. Did something happen with streaming Atmos? I tried Jack Ryan in UHD and there is no option for Atmos even after I start playing the video. I've tried a hard reset of everything, turned off CEC completely, mulled over settings countless times. I'm using an Anthem AVM60 processor for reference and a Samsung 4k LED TV. I've put this thing away for a while so maybe I remembered it supporting Atmos by mistake. Apologies if so.

Must be an issue with Jack Ryan. I found another title to try - Suspiria and Atmos fired right away. Sorry for the forum clutter.

Jack Ryan is still playing in Atmos here from my Fire TV 4K sticks.

@Cliff Olson , I bet if you try JR again, you'll get Atmos; I had this earlier where it wasn't at first, but then it was after I played something else with Atmos.

I have an AVM60 as well. Hooking up FireTV straight to the TV or to AVM60 worked fine here on Jack Ryan Atmos.

Try streaming from your phone (using "watch on" option) or using Silk Browser to see if it works that way.

I was rewatching it again from the start and I noticed it was only episode 1 that wont fire Atmos. Episode 2 was fine. Went back and restarted E1 and even deleted it from my watchlist and it still wont play E1 in Atmos. Can you guys confirm (in the US) that E1 plays Atmos audio?
