What the heck are those things?

 

They look like the ramps I used to set up for my Hot Wheels tracks.

 

I don't really think you need to worry about that extra stuff.  If it is working, then leave it and tuck all the cables along the corners of the floorboards.


I concur whole heartedly....

Re: Ordered the STRDN1080 Sony Receiver

There is always a caveat to all solutions. 

 

I was hoping to solve the problem of the Playstation inability to output HDR when the VR is connected, by splitting the signal so that one feeds to the VR and one does not and using the receiver to select which mode that I want to be in; VR or HDR.

 

 

The caveat is that the receiver auto-detects a new signal from the VR side, when playing a game on the HDR side, and attempts to auto-switch to the VR signal; It doesn't quite activate and you get this blanking of the screen.

 

Thus I am back to using straight-through HDMI couplers.

 

Playing VR, I would connect the PS4 HDMI out to the VR box which is then connected to Video 1 on the receiver.

 

Playing HDR games, I would connect the PS4 directly to the Game HDMI input on the receiver.

 

 

Out of pocket for $600.
