Connecting a 4K TV

All HDMI jacks on the receiver support 4K resolution and HDCP 2.2 (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection System Revision 2.2).

HDCP 2.2 is newly enhanced copyright protection technology that is used to protect content such as 4K movies.

To watch HDCP 2.2 protected content such as 4K content, connect the HDMI jacks to jacks that support HDCP 2.2 on the TV and AV device. For details on whether the TV and AV device are equipped with HDCP 2.2-compatible HDMI jack, refer to the operating instructions of the connected device.

When you use high bandwidth video formats such as 4K/60p 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4K/60p 4:2:0 10 bit, etc., be sure to set the HDMI signal format. For details, see “Setting HDMI signal formats (HDMI Signal Format).”

* The eARC or ARC function sends digital sound from a TV to the receiver using only an HDMI cable.

Note

  • Sony recommends that you use an HDMI cable made by Sony or another HDMI-authorized cable. Be sure to use a High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet. Premium High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet that supports 18 Gbps is required for 4K/60p 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4K/60p 4:2:0 10 bit, etc.

If the HDMI jack on the TV is labeled “eARC” or “ARC” and is not HDCP 2.2-compatible, connect the receiver to the HDCP 2.2-compatible HDMI jack on the TV using a Premium High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet that supports 18 Gbps. Then, connect an optical digital cable to the optical output jack of the TV to listen to digital sound.
