    Hiya,
    Does anyone have a fully functional solution to this problem yet? I've already got a HDMI 1.4 -> CVBS splitter, which goes into a video grabber, then into my Pi running Hyperion.ng.
    I thought i'd found the ideal solution to this problem, which was a 4K HDR splitter/downscaler combo box from clearvisionsystems over in the UK (https://www.clearvisionsystems.co.uk/hdmi-splitter-with-scaler-18gbps-hdr-4k-1in-2out). The little box proved perfect, ideal infact, and i could connect this onto the output of my Onkyo amplifier, and split the signal into my 4k Samsung TV, and the other side downscaled into my HDMI->CVBS device.

    However, I've sadly had to return this: as there was what appears to be an incompatibility with my Onkyo amplifier which caused corruption to intermittently appear on my TV output (YMMV). clearvisionsystems were superb, and i highly recommend them - they sent a replacement to me initially as we thought it was possibly a faulty box, but the problem persisted :eek:(

    Anyway, like everyone else in here i'm looking for the holy grail: a HDCP 2.2 compliant downscaler/splitter that will allow my UHD 4k HDR TV signal to pass through to my TV, and then downscale this to HDMI 1.4 spec (1080p signal ideally) to be passed through to hyperion.
    The only other issue i noticed with the device from clearvisionsystems, was that the 1080p downscaled signal still contained HDR colour space, so the colours were washed out (again another topic discussed in here).

    Currently im considering a Lightberry HDMI kit 5, but wondered if anyone else had alternatives from elsewhere that solve this problem? Ideally i would like the ability to return if my problem isnt solved, and im not sure whether lightberry would accept returns unlike amazon etc...

    salut tout le monde..
    j'ai dans l'esprit de me lancer sur le sujet, j'ai un rasp 3 b+ et en led j'ai de l'apa 102 mais que faut il acheter alors pour la suite?? j'ai fouiller un peu partout sur le forum mais rien de concluant.
    Quelqu'un pourrait m’orienter sur du matériel sachant que j'ai une télé samsung 4k qled et la ps4 pro.
    merci les gens ;-)

    Hi isn't it then just a software thing? I mean can't you convert the HDR signal to SDR inside the pi somehow?

    I just want hdr10 on my samsung tv without washed out ambilight colors :D anyone has a solution yet? without the fury expensive hardware?

    I bought this one from aliexpress (sorry, no link - product seems to be replaced by a new one):

    Unnlink HDMI Splitter 1X2 HDMI2.0 UHD [email protected] 4:4:4 HDR HDCP 2.2 3D EDID

    I use it on the second HDMI-out of my Onkyo AVR with 4K60p input then downscale to 1080p an then on to the RPi with Hyperion. My TV on the first HDMI-OUT gets 4K60p. So far, so good. But what I somehow missed, is that I won't be able to get 4K24p on the TV - and so movies are stuttering. After all a bit disapppointing...

    Is there any way to have Hyperion running and get 4K24p ? I don't care about HDR...

    Hello guys, new hyperion lover here :)

    So I'm also one of those people who want an hdcp 2.2 encrypted 2160p picture on TV and still be able to feed the rpi with an 1080p source.
    My current setup: AVR with 2 HDMI outputs -> 1st output to 2160p capable TV & 2nd output to UTV007 (1b71:3002) -> rp0w. Since the AVR has no downscaler, simultaneous output of the picture downgrades both outputs to 1080p.

    My idea: I found this product on Amazon and think, it's worth a try. It seems to work without an external psu.
