LOVE this product. I strongly suggest, if you are a newbie to A/V, to read up through the discord and ask questions. The information I discovered allowed me to setup my Arcana 2 VRR within a few minutes. I am running my Xbox Series x to a Samsung QN90B that supports HDMI 2.1 4k 120. However, my Anthem MRX only supports HDMI 2.0. I ran my Xbox to the Arcana 2 where the HDMI 2.1 output connected to the Samsung’s HDMI 2.1 input while the audio out connected to my AVR via HDMI (downgrades to 2.0). Samsung does not support DV but I was able to display LLDV (4k60) no problem. If I want to game at 4K 120, that was not an issue and I didn’t have to deal with messy CEC/eARC handoffs between my TV and AVR (Samsung eARC requires Anynet+cec enabled and that would cause my Anthem MRX to perform random input switches).
After getting this product configured, my media center is complete and allows me the flexibility and scalability to take full advantage of my components.
