*Update: We had previously listed the ASTRO HDMI Adapter as supporting output resolutions at frame rates other than 60 Hz, this has been changed to reflect the correct output of 60 Hz at all supported resolutions.* *"If you are asking why we did not HDMI 2.1, which features 4k / 120 Hz and 8k: We opted for HDMI 2.0b for this adapter because 2.0b covers the majority of users and their hardware going into this next generation of consoles. The PlayStation 5 is limited in its 4k output for games to 60 Hz. To include HDMI 2.1 would have more than doubled the cost of the adapter while only being relevant in a lower number of use cases. For those who need HDMI 2.1 support, other HDMI Adapters with optical outputs can also be used with ASTRO hardware

Setting up Astro A50 on PS5 and getting decent sound by scaredofthedark666
Thanks u/scaredofthedark666, which they provide 2 solutions

In Addition since the adapter only works with upto 4K60Hz(hdmi 2.0b) , there is a few things you miss out on from HDMI 2.1 TVs(monitors too when available) depending if Sony implements them (as per what rumours has said)
Dynamic HDR, Enhanced audio return(eARC){which some folks are currently using}, Variable Refresh Rate(VRR),Quick Media Switching(QMS), Quick Frame Transport(QFT), Auto low latency mode(ALLM) & Display Stream Compression(DSC)
based on Sonys x900h specs info 4K120/eARC/VRR/ALLM these
*"will be available via a future firmware update
Currently Sonys x900h has rolled out an update in waves Europe, Australia and USA

*The update enables higher bandwidth on the compatible HDMI 2.1 ports in the TVs. This allows game consoles and media players to feed the TVs with signals in up to 4K120 (4K at 120 frames per second) and 8K60 (Z8H/ZH8 only). The update also enables HDMI eARC and adds the Apple TV app* *Sony said that VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode), which are two optional HDMI 2.1 features, will be enabled on X900H (XH90) with a later update as soon as VRR and ALLM have been formally certified by an HDMI test center. The same two TVs are also part of Sony's Ready for Playstation 5' market initiative.* *Link to info from FlatPanelsHD* This also applies to other Brand Tvs such as LG, Samsung, Hisense etc - they have started rolling out their own update of the 4 features: 4K120/eARC/VRR/ALLM With the above, Astro gaming has also advised that people are not restricted from sourcing a different brand adapter but currently there isnt one that does HDMI 2.1 4k/120hz (not that im aware of either) Thank you no comments yet Be the first to share what you think! == About Community == Members Online Top 20% Ranked by Size
