Re: STR- DN860 / 1060 HDR pass through via HDMI 2.0a update

lussda - yes you are correct. HDR will not passthrough the amp. This has no effect on HDR streaming from the TV smart features like Netflix.

Thanks so much JeffMel. info is much appreciated. Interestingly I'm not seeing the 1070 available at BestBuy Canada any longer. Assume the DN1080 (with atmost and D-X) is on its way.

lol of course they waited for next years model for Atmos.. ugh.. My bose acoustimass 10 series iv wouldnt support it anyway. Just sporting 5.1 (not even 7.2) and it still sounds amazing. But if you have the room for the setup, Atmos all the way!

Re: STR- DN860 / 1060 HDR pass through via HDMI 2.0a update

I don't need Atmost. Don't even need 7.2 to be honest as I only have 5.1 setup (PSB speakers). Everything sounds great with the 860. I play a lot of DVD-A, SACD content using OPPO. I do plan on getting a 2nd sub though.

Too bad about the HDR issue with the 860. Somewhat disappointing as I'm on the lookout for a 4K TV and PS. If I can't get Sony to replace my 860 I'll be stuck with it as I can't see myself buying a 1080 or any new AV Receiver anytime soon. I'll have to bypass the AV receiver to enjoy 4K HDR video content.

Re: STR- DN860 / 1060 HDR pass through via HDMI 2.0a update

apologies as my question is off topic but still related to the 860 / 1060. My 860 is generating a small amount of heat and assume consuming energy when turned off to standby mode. So i'm thinking it is not fully turned off. Does anyone knwo how to turn off the receiver completely (wthout having to yank the plug)?

Try starting your own topic then.

 

Back to the topic, sony has really dropped the ball on this one. I understand not supporting older models from years past. But this unit is still relevant. The only Sony receiver at Best Buy Canada. I bought one last year, wish I didn't. What makes matters worse, is I also bought a Onkyo, counldnt decide which one I wanted. I chose wrong.

Re: STR- DN860 / 1060 HDR pass through via HDMI 2.0a update

Just wanted to enter in this thread with my situation.

 

Sony 65X850C

Sony STR-DN 860

Xbox One S

 

I have been able to get 4k passthrough on my 860, but as others have stated, there's no way to get HDR through the amp. I was able to plug the HDMI in directly to the TV and HDR was ok but not through the amp.

 

Please Sony, give us an update for HDR passthrough via your 860/1060 amp. 

 

This is a product Sony is currently selling as NEW. I feel bad for all the people that are going to find out it doesn't work properly like we thought it would.

Hello Sony! Please provide the firmware update for HDMI 2.0a support for the STR-DN1060 ASAP.  It is ludicrous that you will not support HDR when I was told when I purchased the product that it would be supported with a future update.
