    : Xbox One X - HDMI 2.1 connection issues with AV receiver preventing passthrough of 4K/120 and 8K/60 HDR video
    Hi Everyone!

    I found this article that may provide some help or insight into issue with your Xbox One X connected through an A/V Receiver.

    Xbox Series X's HDMI 2.1 headache with AV receivers finally has a solution | TechRadar

    One of the Xbox Series X's most hyped features is its HDMI 2.1 support, allowing for vast quantities of data to pass through to 4K TVs, 8K TVs, and compatible AV receivers – and it looks like of the biggest bugbears in this ecosystem is now on the cusp of being fixed.

    Sound United, the parent company of Denon and Marantz, has proposed a hardware solution to HDMI 2.1 connection issues arising when connecting the Xbox Series X to an affected AV receiver, which had previously "prevented the passthrough of 4K/120 and 8K/60 HDR video" from Microsoft's flagship games console (via 8K Association).

    This has meant players have been unable to utilize some of the console's most impressive specifications for a growing number of Xbox Series X games that can be played in 4K resolution at 120fps.

    The issue only occurs when linking up the console through the AV receiver, rather than directly to a television – except in Japan, where Sharp 8K TVs are said to replicate the issue – but has been causing problems for those that rely on an AV receiver in their home theater system. Affected models include Denon's X-Series range, Marantz's SR range, and Yamaha's RX-V4A and RX-V6A (via What Hi-Fi?).

    The solution proposed by Sound United involves a dedicated HDMI adapter – a "new box" that mediates the signal between the Xbox Series X and AV receiver, and "corrects the 4K/120 or 8K/60 HDR signal so users do not see a blank screen when the AVR is then connected to an 8K or 4K TV."

    If you're worried about having to fork out for yet another piece of hardware, fear not: the 8K Association states that the HDMI adapter (SPK618) is "free for affected AVR owners", whether you own a Denon or Marantz AV receiver.

    Yamaha AV receivers are also said to be affected by the issue, though the company appears to have been left out of the above announcement. Yamaha does, however, advise affected users to plug their Xbox Series X console directly into their TV, and use an eARC connection to loop the audio signal back into the receiver.

    It's not just Microsoft that's faced obstacles around HDMI 2.1 support, of course. The Sony PS5 struggled at launch to output HDR as well as 4K/120fps play on new Samsung TVs, though a firmware update in March 2021 managed to fix the issue.

    :)

    Xbox One X setup with Soundbar

    Thanks. My Soundbar supports 4k Passthrough so I don't need to use optical - as far as I can tell
    Since your soundbar supports 4K Passthrough you should connect your Xbox One HDMI to the sound bar then connect the sound bar HDMI to your TV with HDMI 2.0 or 2.1 cables for best results like Leemur60 said.

    Best gaming monitor - tv for xbox series x

    You don't need HMDI 2.1 for 4k on the Series X...you only need HDMI 2.1 to run at 4k 120Hz. The Xbox One X only ran on HDMI 2.0 but it output 4k perfectly fine.

    Xbox series x

    And what if I buy a cable will it work
    The Xbox Series X will come with a HDMI 2.1 cable,

    But whether you use a HDMI 2.1 cable or not, the HDMI port on the TV needs to be HDMI 2.1 to achieve the 120hz refresh rates at 4K.

    using a HDMI 2.1 cable on a TV port with HDMI 2.0 will still only limit the Xbox Series X to 60hz refresh rates.

    So o can connect the hdmi 2.1 to a regular 4 k 2.0 hdmi port but I will not get the full experience or
    there will be like some xbox series xs that have different cables.
    No, The Xbox Series X has a HDMI 2.1 port therefore it will always ship with a HDMI 2.1 cable,

    "So o can connect the hdmi 2.1 to a regular 4 k 2.0 hdmi port but I will not get the full experience or there will be like some xbox series xs that have different cables."

    Yes, you can connect a HDMI 2.1 cable to a HDMI 2.0 port on your TV, you'll just be limited to 4K at 60hz, which is no different to what it like to play on the Xbox One X right now,

    [table][tr][td]Xbox Console HDMI Port[/td][td]HDMI Cable[/td][td]TV HDMI Port[/td][/tr][tr][td]Xbox One X, HDMI 2.0[/td][td]HDMI 2.0[/td][td]HDMI 2.0 = 4K at 60hz[/td][/tr][tr][td][td][td][/tr][tr][td]Xbox One X, HDMI 2.0[/td][td]HDMI 2.0[/td][td]HDMI 1.4 = 4K at 24hz to 30hz[/td][/tr][/table]

    As long as you have HDMI 2.0 port on your TV you'll be fine to use the Xbox Series X, but if your wanting to experience 4K at 120hz, you'll need a TV or Gaming monitor that has HDMI 2.1 ports.

    Series S bad HDR on a 4K TV

    1440p 120 Hz but 4k 60hz if you really want 4k

    Keep in mind games will drop your resolution if it's too high for their settings

    You need series x and hdmi 2.1 for 4k 120hz

    It's important to leave vvr on
