    Equipment List
    Source: Byte3
    A/V Receiver: Sony STR-DN1080, 5.1.2 setup
    TV: Panasonic TC-P55ST30

    Problem/Issue
    With the Byte3 connected directly to the TV via hdmi, the Byte3 works as intended.
    However, when the Byte3 is connected to the a/v receiver via hdmi, receiver does not recognize the device.

    The ideal setup in my case is to connect the Byte3 to the a/v receiver via hdmi instead of being directly connected to the TV because the audio is down mixed to a 2.0 single (source content is of 5.1 quality or higher) by the TV before being outputted by the receiver via hdmi (arc).
    My 7 year old laptop can output to the same receiver via hdmi providing the desired uncompressed audio. The Byte3, for all intents and purposes, was to be a direct replace for the laptop.

    Questions
    Is the Byte3 HDCP complaint?
    Will there be a firmware update to allow the Byte3 to be connected to modern a/v receivers/switches via hdmi that employ HDCP 2.2?

    I am having the same problem with a Yamaha RX-V681 a/v receiver.
    When I connect HDMI display devices directly to the Byte3, they are recognized and work as expected.
    When I connect the display devices to my AV Receiver and then connect the receiver to the Byte3, the Byte3 does not recognize the AV Receiver as an HDMI device.
    I downloaded the latest Intel Graphics driver update, but still no joy.

    Goal:
    To route the Byte3 Video feed through the A/V Receiver so that the audio can be played on the surround sound speakers.
    To play audio from the Byte3 over the HDMI link to the A/V receiver when the TV is off so that we can stream music using the Byte3.

    Is this possible?

    Hello,

    Thank you for using our forums. Regarding to your questions, thanks to a customer called Malcolm Dixon we have noticed that sometimes the receiver won’t pick the signal, he provided a solution as well. This issue can be solved by using a HDMI restorer, he tested two different brands with positive results: Dr. HDMI and Gefen Detective Plus.

    Do not hesitate to contact us directly if you have further questions or concerns.

    Best regards.
