4K soundbar/projector issues


Distinguished Member
Hi all. I’ve just tried to hook up my UHZ65UST pj to my nVidia Shield and my bluray player, via a Yamaha YSP3300 soundbar. However, I was only getting a 1080p signal being reported. It turns out that although the soundbar boasts 4k pass-through it is not HDCP2.2 compliant. After a bit of Googling, it turns out that this is useless for watching 4k disks. I took the soundbar out of the equation, and all was well, picture-wise, with a 4k signal getting through.

So, am I right in thinking that the only way I can utilise the soundbar, and keep a 4k image, is by going directly to the projector with HDMI leads, and then feeding an optical cable from the pj to the soundbar? It makes sense in my head, but thought it best to check in case I’ve missed something. Cheers.
