Does anyone read this section and fix anything. I never see any replies and everything reported goes unfixed. Why have this section.

So Wolfgang what are your criteria in selecting an HDMI 2.0a/b matrix? Have you identified any candidates yet? I know Peter ran into trouble, or just less concerning issues with all of the first/second generation HDMI 2.0 switchers/matrices. Mostly EDID issues, but we are at least another year down the road, so what could/would work. The HDFury products allow for forcing displays in HDR mode, so that might be an option for just switching two HDMI sources to one display. But not sufficient if one has to have two or more outputs, or more inputs.

Today I got the almost last update for my Crestron System that drive the whole cinema and much more.

Now I can select all sources via the the hot keys on the display see picture.
Only a Matrix Switcher is missing as both HDMI Inputs from the Barco Alchemy + Input  was blocked already with other sources.
But my 4K 3D computer need per eye one HDMI Input at the Barco.
As I not like to disconnect both HDMI cables and connenct it after I finish the 4K 3D Computer Slide Show
I need such a system that can be controlled with the Crestron System and the hot keys as well.
