FTFY. :p\n\nTo a certain extent I'm kidding.\nBut the 2020 Denon and Marantz receivers do actually have functioning HDMI 2.1. It might not be perfect, but it does work.\nThe 2021 Yamahas are still locked down.\n\nIf you don't need the functionality, cool. Nothing wrong with that. But you still have a year old machine that isn't operating as advertised. *shrugs\n\nI've been hoping they fix it and move on. Cheering for that, dare I say. So far, Yamaha is pulling an Emotiva on that one.\n\nFor me at least, I don't have a need for HDMI 2.1. I recently purchased an Xbox Series X but have it hooked up to my new Sony TV upstairs. My JVC NX5 doesn't have 2.1 or 120hz. But I will eventually bring it down and hook it up. Graphics will still look amazing. I don't play the massive first person shooter games so doesn't bother me not having 2.1 in the theater yet.
