As moulto6 and R Chill have pointed out, this model does not support "true" 4K passthrough, as one might expect. I finally got Sony to admit that. The reason is that it does not have HDCP2.2, which is required for 4K. After a long conversation with them, they pointed me to this article: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/75522 This, to me, is a workaround, and relies on your TV having ARC (See the article). The passthrough is that it really bypasses the Sony receiver all together, and uses it as a slave. Nothing wrong with that, as long as your TV itself has true passthrough for the audio. The newer model STR DH&&) apparently does have HDCP2.2. One is supposed to see its label on the HDMI ports on the back of the receiver.
