Fibre hdmi cable,- issue with receiver?

Got a 5m fibre hdmi cable, but seems to be an issue with my receiver (pioneer vsx-1131).
Connecting the cable from pc directly to tv works, 4k60hz hdr.
But going via receiver theres no signal if i use one of the hdcp inputs on it, only with non hdcp input. But the issue there is I get no hdr in windows.

Is this a known issue with these receivers?

When you say going via the AVR where in the signal path is the Fibre HDMI cable?

Have you tested PC > AVR > TV with conventional ‘non active’ cables to confirm it all works as required?

Is the Fibre cable being used Source > AVR or AVR > Display?

PS You have ensured the Fibre cable is the right way around - they are Directional!

im using it as source(pc)-avr.
yes, its the correct way. Seems like when connected to the hdcp input on the receiver it does not deliever enough data, since its somewaht working on the non hdcp imputs, but then theres no hdr in win 10.

HDCP is an encryption system - all Inputs on the AVR are HDCP compliant, some may support 2.2 (4K UHD with HDR) others 1.4 (HD SDR).

Power is possibly the issue as your Fibre cable has to ‘steal’ power from the Source, Sync (Display) or both - you may have to add a 5V inserter into the Source > AVR signal path when using the Fibre cable.

ok, thanks. guess ill stick to the normal chunky 5 meter cable. Wanted something thinner and flexible in my pack, but need it to work also.

If the copper cable works (which it ought to at 5m) it keeps thing simpler.
