I don't want to derail the thread with cable recommendations too much as there are multiple threads about it.

I went with the AQ Vodka RJ/E and the controversial AQ RJ/E Diamond. Nowadays you have a lot more brand cables to choose from and there could be more costefficient cables out there apart from pure DIY with MFP8 TeleGärtner connectors.

Has anyone tried running an Amazon Fire TV (Gen 2) box with the new UHD722 and an 861v6? I tried this out on Saturday and had difficulty getting Dolby Digital 5.1 sound to pass through. It does successfully pass Dolby Digital 2.0 though. When I run a 5.1 video from Netflix I hear unprocessed digital data going to the 861.

When I was using the HD621 I used to successfully process 5.1 from the Dolby Digital Plus Auto setting.

The Amazon OS allows you to turn off Dolby Digital Plus but doing so forces apps like Netflix to only send Dolby 2.0 on all titles.

I have a similar problem with a cable receiver (Humax iHDR-5200C) and the UHD722 / G65. Dolby 5.1 just leads to terrible noise. It worked fine on the HD621 before. Switching to stereo in the audio settings of the cable receiver works fine.

Fortunately I hardly use the cable receiver, so my stereo-workaround is fine with me, but it seems like there may be a UHD722 / Dolby 5.1 compatibility issue.

This is good to know. I reported the 5.1 Dolby incompatibility finding to my Dealer in hopes Meridian will address it soon.

Ditto, I have suffered exactly the same issue with Fire TV gen 2 and the UHD722. Meridian have been aware of the problem for the past month and apparently are working on it but I've heard nothing yet.

I'll let my dealer know that two other folks have had exactly the same problem to give him an excuse to chase Meridian. Hopefully this demonstrates it isn't an isolated issue or an issue with set up but is actually a fault. You also cannot blame the cable for this one given the Fire TV uses a dongle!

In a funny sort of way I am thrilled someone else is suffering the same issue, confirms I am not going insane. Thanks for sharing!

I need the measurements of the UHD722 carton for a transport. Any change to HD621?

Maybe a early adaptor can help.

Many thanks in advance!

As someone who only really watches two video sources, AppleTV4k and Oppo 203, I think I'm going to skip this. I plugged the ATV into the back of the Oppo and switch on the Oppo. The Oppo sends sound to the HD621, and the image to the projector.

I'll probably do a second run from the HD621 to the Sony 4k projector for any legacy 1080p video equipment, but frankly I don't think I'll need to hurry.

The ATV has apps for all of the streaming services that I normally use.
The rare times I need to watch the output of my 4k video camera I'll just plug straight into the projector, or use the cable that goes to the ATV if I need sound.

In the US, are there any other devices/services that I should be aware of?

Thanks!
