Typically with devices which support ARC, one connector would be marked as the one that accepts ARC and not the other.

It would seem odd to be that they wouldn't route ARC down the MMHR connection.

Is there a chance that the ARC via SpeakerLink is to allow you to just plug a UHD722 directly into speakers with no processor? If so, I'd hope it would also output stereo from any of the HDMI sources too.

Well I just chanced across this thread and indeed am thinking about moving to 4K but the impression I get is that it's still in a sh*tty box that doesn't exude M's style nor match their other kit (not even as an option) and should have more inputs and especially outputs for 2000GBP.

What you really get is a bog standard if decent off the shelf video board with I assume a token bit of M hardware too and a price that smacks of should be 1000-1500GBP even at M prices but lets charge 2000GBP and give a discount to get some quick sales to shift the batch of video boards we had to buy, existing users will think they are getting a bargain, M get some revenue and in a year or so we can chop the price back to the HD621. Not saying it's wrong by M to do this but that what it looks like.

Oppo audio into HD621 and 2nd HDMI separate video seems to be the rational path here, it's the only source other than streaming that I'm really looking for SQ anyway.

With both Richard and Bob out of M; I continue wish M every success but sorry my loyalty left with them.

Hi Carl,

My use-case has been described in this thread already. Basically I stream a lot through my Smart TV and would like to get surround sound. Right now I use ARC to get sound to my Oppo which passes it to my HD621. I’d rather skip the Oppo in this chain.

Best,
Dirk

Surely one of the monitor outs on the switch will receive the audio from your TV (ARC our of TV) back in and pass that signal out again to your processor?

Indeed, that's what I would expect.
So actually the UHD722 will have 8 HDMI 'inputs' you can select in its configuration.
7 from the dedicated HDMI Inputs and one from its HDMI output that has ARC

Has that been confirmed? It wasn’t obvious at all from the video I saw.

With around 50% of viewing now done through streaming, and most using the apps on their TVs to do so, I would hope this feature hasn't been missed?
