When connecting your UHD Blu-ray player to an AV receiver, it is important to know if your AV receiver supports 4K Pass-through. If your AV receiver does not support 4K Pass-through, and the UHD Blu-ray player is not connected properly, you will receive an error message when trying to play a 4K Blu-ray disc.

Connecting to an AV Receiver that Supports Pass Through

  1. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI OUT 1 port of the Blu-ray player to the HDMI IN port of your AV receiver.
