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

      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.

      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.

      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?

      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.
