I saw something that eARC compresses lossless audio over HDMI to your receiver or SSP. Is this true? I don't use eARC but thought I would mention and ask here if anyone knows?
A new card specifically with eARC, not the one you have. In testing a few months back. I don't think it's shipping yet. No I don't really need it but some will.A new new HDMI card or just the new HDMI card that went into my unit with the CB V upgrade? I believe mine to be the latest they have. John said it used HDMI 2.0b. I had thought eARC (as opposed to ARC) was implemented as part of the HDMI 2.1 standard:
From WhatHiFi: "
Enhanced Audio Return Channel (also known as eARC) is the next generation of ARC. It’s a feature implemented in the most recent HDMI 2.1 specification."
but I note the text in the data sheet from MDS. That said, I can't see a reason why I'd ever need it. My display isn't going to act a source device for my CB.
