  1. I have not tried this. I'm a little intimidated by the idea, but I'll give it a try this weekend. 🙂 One thig I want to clarify... you're talking about doing this to the cable that runs from the EA1 to the HDBaseT transmitter IR input? Thanks!
  2. Well, I have seemingly tried everything, and I can't get IR signal to send over my HDBaseT extender. Stereo cable. Mono cable. Mono to stereo and stereo to mono adapters. 5V mono to 12V stereo cable. Am I missing something? Anything else I might try?
  3. @Crustyloafer, can I buy one of these cables from you? Everything else has failed. I tried the stereo cable that @chopedogg88 recommended above. I tried a Mono to Stereo adapter plugged into the C4. I tried a Stereo to Mono adapter plugged into the HDbaseT device. Nothing worked. Thanks!
  4. Interesting. Thanks @chopedogg88. I'm definitely confused now though. 😀 @sonic30101 says the IR outputs on the EA1 are mono. You're saying that a 3.5mm stereo cable from the EA1 to the a HDbaseT transmitter should still work though? Thanks!
  5. Thanks! So, would something like this work? https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-107129-Stereo-Adaptor-Plated/dp/B005E2XZYC/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=3.5mm+mono+to+3.5mm+stereo+cable&qid=1558270183&s=gateway&sr=8-8
  6. Am I correct in my recollection that the IR outputs on the EA1 are mono? I'm trying to use an HDbaseT device that has an IR input that is stereo. Is there a way to do this? Thanks!
  7. I think I understand now. Thanks! I'm an end user. Any thoughts on this HDbaseT extender? It says it has a Contro4 driver. Is this necessary? Do you provide remote programming services? If I purchase and install such a device, can you configure the C4 settings for me?
  8. You lost me here. 😀 Wouldn't Coax output be unable to handle hi-rez multi-channel? What is AV Path Setter?
  9. Thanks @Crustyloafer! This seems like the best/only option. I don't have a spare CAT cable running to the projector. However, in looking at that HDbaseT device you linked to, it mentions IR. Does this mean it would transport IR over the same CAT cable as the HDMI signal? Or, would I still need either a direct IR connection from the EA1 to the projector or something like that Z2IR device? Thanks!!
  10. Thank you for the suggestion @Crustyloafer!! Unfortunately, half of my music collection is multichannel FLAC files. I really appreciate your taking the time to reply! Thank you!
  11. Thanks @RAV! So, what I would be doing with that HDbaseT extender is basically using CAT6 to run a second HDMI connection from the C4 EA1 to my Epson Projector? Then, when using the Roon Nucleus I would switch the projector from Input 1 (Denon receiver) to Input 2 (EA1). That sound right? It's not ideal, since my Projector is controlled via IR blaster, and every now and then it misses a command. But, it sounds like this may be my only option. Would a 4x4 HDMI matrix allow me to use a single HDMI cable to my projector, and have the EA1 HDMI video feed to the projector and the Nucleus HDMI feed audio to my Denon receiver? Also, I should make clear that in this situation, I am using the Roon Nucleus... so, sort of both a Roon software AND hardware solution. Ironically, I bought the Nucleus to replace my previous Roon endpoint because it was the only way to get Roon's C4 driver. I unfortunately failed to account for this HDMI situation. Oh, and I don't think a USB DAC will work since I have a ton of multichannel music that I believe will only work over HDMI. I created quite the pickle for myself. 😀
  12. Could something like this solve my problem? 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher or HDbaseT Extender Kit I'm not entirely clear how these work, but they sound like possibilities and the have C4 drivers. Thanks!!
