Last year we started to see the first recipients coming out with HDMI 2.1 ports that can support 120Hz up to 8K resolution. However the original hardware has been compatible with other devices – the Xbox Series X – and it looks like the repair will be much harder.
As Forbes and HD Guru say, Yamaha, Denon and Marantz are all retailers experiencing the same problems that gamers realized as soon as the new console was launched. Denon and Marantz are both made of Sound United, And he fixed this by giving them an adapter to sit between the Xbox and the receivers. SPK618 will “repair” HDMI data from the Xbox to your 4K / 120Hz TV while playing. Affected recipients may request a box from May 15 by checking with Denon or Marantz.
As for Yamaha, game developers are currently being advised connecting their consoles directly to the TV – which can have its own, as we met – and using HDMI eARC functionality to feed audio back to the recipient. It also said “We will discuss the issue of HDMI 2.1 through future updates to provide customers with the best possible solution.”
