An issue has been identified in certain emerging video signals, such as 4K/120Hz, from select sources, resulting in a loss of picture and sound when passed through AV receivers. Yamaha is aware of the issue.
The latest AV receivers from Yamaha currently support HDMI pass-through of 4K/60Hz signals with HDR (HDR10 and Dolby Vision) and may be used with the latest gaming devices. The newest Yamaha AV receivers also currently support HDMI eARC, which allows 4K/120Hz sources to be connected directly to a compatible TV, with the audio fed to the AVR via eARC.
From the time we first announced the newest AV receivers from Yamaha, such as the RX-V4A, RX-V6A, we have stated that we will support emerging HDMI 2.1 capabilities (such as 4K/120Hz pass-through) via future updates. We will address the reported HDMI 2.1 issue via these planned future updates in order to provide customers with the best solution available.
