A new version of the Config program will be on the website soon.
In the meantime dealers have a pre-release version for UHD722 setup.

Yep , build 3.7.0.3586 is on the firmware page already .

A bit of clarity regarding ARC set up would help . How much use is it if 722 can't decode anything ?

Well, one would assume the use of the UHD722 with a Meridian surround sound processor, in that scenario you should be fine with everything. ARC allows 1 SPDIF's worth of data, so that could be a lossless CD or HD stereo track, or it could be Dolby Digital or DTS (plain versions, not TrueHD/Master Audio). These would simply be routed to your M processor which could handle them all.

If the UHD722 supports eARC (I don't think it does but maybe?) then it wouldn't provide any support for Atmos or dts:x, but then I imagine the UHD722 would advertise that it doesn't support those protocols anyway. It could however receive 8 channels of PCM which it could feed to an 861 or G65 (the latter would be able to accept 6 of those channels).

Per user-guide: The ARC input is only available on the SpeakerLink output. This audio output is a direct audio signal from HDMI Out 1 and therefore bypasses the UHD722 digital signal processing.

Hi David,

No the UHD722 doesn't support eARC.

Apologies if this has been asked before, but I'm only learning now about the ARC thingy.

On my Samsung 6000 series flat screen TV, there is not HDMI out, but I did noticed one HDMI ARC input. Could I connect it to the HDMI input of my HD621 and get the sound out of the TV?

Thanks

No, you’d need the UHD722 to do that

At the worst case you might need an extra HDMI cable but surely you can find one for less than the £1500 UHD722 upgrade cost???
This is the best advice I've heard. I did a bit of research and I think some people had trouble passing HDR content through this input. Still researching. For me two 4k devices would be a reasonable stop gap measure. But I would want both to pass HDR.


Research done. Apple TV 4k and Oppo 203 are both in glorious HDR. I'll be fine now with the HD621 until I buy another 4k source.
