Thanks guy. I know what a BALUN is. Siri does not.

1. Yet you misspelled it.
2. Yet you called an extender a balun. Excuse me, you called it a balin (isn't that a kind of whale?).
3. Ask at remote central, don't ask Siri.

It's a bit much to think Siri can answer all questions on all topics.

In fact, I wonder if Siri might know the answer, but think that it's pronounced bay-lun, when it's bal-un... that's bal, as in balanced, and un, as in unbalanced; that's what the word comes from.

So try asking Siri about bay-luns. It would be amusing if Siri knew about baluns but didn't know how the word is pronounced!
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Ernie, you must have a lot of extra time on your hands.

There is one incredibly valuable piece of info missing here, are you using a 1080p or 4k (that is HDMI 2.0 HDCP 2.2 compliant)?

If you're doing 1080p, there are lots of audio extractor solutions (cheap Tensun); however if you want 4k the ONLY solution that currently works is using a Key Digital HDMIFIX22 ($230-$250), and then converting from digital coax to digital optical ($50-$80)...only it imparts about a .5 second audio delay and there are no current solutions to delay the HDMI image.

- pricing is retail/MSRP

There is a Wyrestorm extender kit scheduled for release sometime Q1/Q2 and is an Extender with the capabilities and compliance built in...estimated price is $800-1100 (price was not officially set 10 days ago when I was researching a solution for the problem you have); the unit it replaces works...but wasn't HDMI 2.2 compliant and causes problems because of it.

Anyone had good luck with an audio extractor that:

Passes 4K from an AppleTV...AppleTV4K>Extractor>Yamaha receiver>TV
Doesn't throw off ridiculous RF noise (that renders your RTI/URC processor virtually useless)?

Thanks in advance

Ours will support 4K passthrough with Dolby 5.1 downmixing. Does not have to have an HDMI cable connected on the output to work.

I'm streaming Pandora via a Chromecast Ultra from my mobile right now into an amplifier and speakers in my office.

We've shipped quite a few. No complaints of RF issues and none that we have seen in the lab in many different test environments.

Jeff,

Your link didn't work.

I have tried a few of these units from other companies before and ran into the problem of having to connect to the HDMI output for it to work. If your unit doesn't require that, that's a huge plus.

What's the model number and MSRP?

We need a go-to piece for this. Would you please send me pricing info as well?

Thanks

Atlona piece worked well with a Sony 4K Blu-ray through an Elan HDMI matrix.
