Got the new Mighty box today. My setup is as follows. FetchTv....LG 55 inch smart TV...Yamaha YSP2700 sound bar.. On the old gen2 box i had everything running thru the Yamaha.I.E. TV HDMI1 (ARC) to the Yamaha HDMI out. Fetch box to the Yamaha HDMI1 input. I had the antenna from tv to the aerial out on the fetch box and the aerial wall connection to the aerial on the fetch box. All this worked fine.
When i got the Mighty box I noticed no Aerial out on it. So i went and bought a Aerial splitter ( on for TV and one for Mighty box) when i plugged the mighty box in i got the message "HDMI ouput on soundbar needs to be connected to an HDCP2 compatible HDMI input on your TV to view this content" .
So i went and purchased ($54) a HDMI 2.2 cable and tried again...Same message. So i thought bugger this and went to use my old Fetch box and lo and behold it had been terminated No activation.
Then i tried once more to setup the Mighty box and this time got a Critical HDD error when it tried to boot....So now i have two Fetch boxes and none will work. Can i get my old Fetch box re-activated and send the Mighty back.
Thanks for the reply.....Not buying a new Soundbar..(it cost $1360) My Tv is not 4K So the HDMI splitter Might be an Option. But if i can get my Gen2 Box re-activated somehow I will stick with that as everything worked well with it even the Yamaha.
The other thing is i will have to send back the Mighty box (Critical HDD failure) and iof its not going to plat faair with the Yamaha then its no good to me.
Optus won't reactivate a box (but do certainly ask).
The issue wasn't a lack of capability, but as is so often the case just copy "protection" that those that want to copy bypass and those that legally pay to just watch find they are locked out. So no, you don't need a HDMI 2.2 cable.
NB Its a great soundbar. Do have a quick play around to see if you can send the sound to the SB from the TV (they have audio out).
Well that will teach me: I was having a look around the menu's of th Mighty box and in the Audio/Visual section there's an Advanced option where you can disable the HDCP 2.2 and force HDMI 1.4a.
So i disabled it and now i am back to my normal setup with everything connected to the Yamaha. I wish Fetch would have put that option when installing the mighty on non 4K TV's.
