Am I missing something here. I just run an optical cable from the TV to the processor. Works fine.

Isn't an UHD722 overkill for this. It's not like it's a lossless audio track from a Blu-ray where you HAVE to use a HD621 because of licensing issues.

How many devices actually support DTS-HD etc. beyond Blu-ray players?

I'm asking this out of genuine interest, not to start a war of words.

Thanks

I don't think you are missing anything here, but it's such an obvious feature to have that it will feel as if M have missed something if its not included.

Some of the new TVs are now supporting Dolby True HD and Atmos etc.
Obviously on the TV this is a bit overkill, but it means as the streaming services add these codecs you are now able to pass the lossless audio back to your receiver/processor/UHD722.

How would you get these into your Meridian processor if the Monitor out doesn't support ARC in?

Don't you need eARC (enhanced ARC)support for lossless on the audio return channel? standard ARC is just a single SPDIF's worth of data. of course, I'd love it if the UHD722 supported eARC...

My UHD722 is also ordered at AV-Emotions Switzerland. I'm looking forward to go to the projector with only one HDMI cable. So far, 4K is using a cable from the Oppo 203 and AppleTV-4K to the SONY beamer. and a second cable connects all the other sources of the HD621's.
A lot of money for an HDMI switch/splitter, but I assume it will work fine with the M-Comm's! The long wait has its price; -)

When I look at rear picture of the UHD722 in the UHD722 Data Sheet I can’t see any Comms like I have on my HD621. Does this mean that I will have start and turn off the UHD722 and 861 individually and not as I have today, handling both units from 861?

SpeakerLink has comms. Perhaps it will use that?

The SpeakerLink connection carries the comms.

For those without SpeakerLink equipment a custom cable should be all that’s required to hook it up.

Would the EMMHR connection carry Meridian comms so avoiding an incipient spaghetti-fest for those using it with the G65 or 861v8.

Unlike SpeakerLink there’s no Comms channel on the MMHR RJ45 port.

That seems a little clunky/remiss.

Also why are we calling it EMMHR now?
