Possible to modify a Yamaha RX-A2020 for HDMI2/HDCP2.2?

Recommended Posts

I realise this may be a stupid question - does anyone know if it’s possible to modify a Yamaha RX-A2020 for HDMI2/HDCP2.2? When we picked our up in 2012 I was hoping the 4K passthrough would help future proof it. While I realise HDCP2.2 can be stripped out or downgraded to an earlier version compatible with the AVR, I believe 4K passthrough maxes out at 30hz and I doubt HDR would get through either.


As our TV takes 4K/60 and HDR I was hoping I could bust out the soldering iron and my SMD rework gear to replace some ICs, but I suspect all the gear in the Yammy will be custom. Still, in case anyone had played around I thought it couldn’t hurt to ask :) The budget won’t stretch for a new AVR for a while so I was curious if I could otherwise breathe some extra life into our AVR!

No, not going to happen. There are other options like an AVR Key (price is US$).

I thought it might have been a long shot! Good to know about the AVR key though to split off HD audio to keep that rolling!
