So I finally have my dreamscreen 4k working without HDMI issues. I have my video card cloning the display - 1 output to my receiver, the other output to the dreamscreen. Isn't this the same thing that the solo does, what would be different? Will the solo support dolby vision?
The only issue is I can't use the dreamscreen if it's not a source from the pc. Possible solutions I was thinking of - hdmi splitter off the reciever, hdmi capture cards in the pc, or upgrading to a dual output receiver.
This seems... less than ideal. So now instead of a hub, with 3 inputs that does nothing but throw up handshake problems and incompatibility issues, you make a device that you now have to run 2 HDMI cables for. Meaning, if I have this device behind my television on the wall, I now have to run 2 hdmi cables behind the TV. I also have to have a device that supports simultaneous 4k output which for a lot of pre- 2018 receivers, isn't a normal feature. Most support 4k on one or 4k on both but with diminished audio capability.
Do you guys even listen to your customers!?!?!?
Why not just have a single unit that works as a passthrough? Single Hdmi in/single hdmi out. The end. No silly switching to contend with or CEC problems. No handshake concerns due to a split signal. No running extra HDMI cables. Just a cable in from source and out to the TV. That's all we want. Fewer options, less problems and at this stage in the game Dolby Vision. Maybe throw in some IFTTT support without a whole additional addon purchasable box requiring even more investment.
Good luck guys. Seems like another half thought out idea with the wrong focus in mind.
