Where can I get one of those comms dongles and are they £400 each?

Hi,

Very funny - the 'dongle' - two connectors (DIN comms and SL comms) back to back with a bit of heat shrink tape hiding the solder connections.

Has anyone got one, to post a photo?

I received one comms adapter along with my UHD722!
Absolutely a strange thing - but it works smile

Should there be one in the box with the UHD722?

Yes, I had one in the box and it's also mentioned in the User Guide:

• A power cord.
• Four self-adhesive feet.
• A Meridian Comms Adapter.
• Quick Start Guide.
• Rack-mounting kit (rack-mounted option only).

They must be joking. At the premium they are charging for this machine I expected more.

The box itself seems more like a tin-can more so than the HD621 and hints more to being an installer product to be hidden away rather than something you would have in your hi-fi rack. It uses the same SMPS notoriously used in the G-series, and their solution for legacy comms support is an adaptor that looks like something homemade I could solder and wrap together in my lab.

I am sure it all works just fine, it just doesn't feel right with the prices they are charging.

After you start using it and suddenly 4K works in all its glory, autoswitch function works automatically so for example to autoselect the AppleTV 4K HDMI input when you send Airplay to it or press menu on the ATV remote.

The box is functional and looks better in the flesh, but you won't stare on it as it's black and you are probably watching the screen. wink
