    The only cable switching, to be clear, is I'm pulling the Cable from the switch that goes to the TV and plugging that one into the back of the XB. That effectively disconnects everything from the switch to the TV and makes 4K work from the XB. When I reconnect that cable to the switch and then plug the cable from the XB to the switch, that's when there's a problem with 4K.

    So, essentially, I'm doing what you suggested and that configuration does work.

    Yes, they do... a 2 flex bridges have practically identical performance to a single HB bridge.

    I'll be replacing them with a HB bridge... but I'm still waiting on anywhere over here to get stock of the one that's the right size for my motherboard.

    And you'd think that Switzerland would be a place in which you could find such things money no object.

    This is the Blackbird 4K Pro box, btw? To be honest I have yet to try one of these on and Xbox One S.

    Try the cable that came with the Xbox One S from the switch to the TV. Essentially swap the cables around, and see if that helps, or if you have any other high speed HDMI or HDMI Premium cables, try those.

    Swiss suppliers don't stock much... they tend to get wholesalers to drop-ship.

    The prices almost compete with the USA though, which is nice - unlike the rest of Europe.

    For example I orders some SSDs and a new monitor for my wife in the first half of August and the ETA is mid-september.

    From a different retailer, I ordered her a new case with supposed 3-5 day lead time nearly two weeks ago and was only just updated that the ETA is mid-October :S I cancelled and ordered from a German retailer which was ordered two days ago, dispatched yesterday and will be delivered tomorrow or monday.

    Most people in Europe looking for an HB bridge are having a hard time finding them. EVGA seem to be fulfilling orders in the USA first at the moment. There's a retailer in the UK with a small handful of the right ones in stock - but they won't ship outside of the UK. Wifey is heading back to the UK next week though, so I'll be able to get her to pick one up if they have any left.

    In the box, was there any software for it, and did it come with a serial port cable? I've seen one of these boxes before.. a bigger unit, and apparently you can hook up the box to a PC, install the software, and with the software you can make changes to how the box acts as well as update the firmware.

    For a second, I actually thought that you bought a huge chandelier! Now I'm laughing at myself.

    Decided to get this headset for my new Xbox One S that's on the way and my PC once it's up and running. The nice thing is it does have a mix amp, my friend has a similar one and they are very nice indeed.

    No software, but, apparently it was the cable! I did leave the TV->Switch connected (the one that was working right connected to the TV/XB) and changed the cable from the XB->Switch and it works! Just played a brief session of RDR @4K.

    Picked this up just now to go with my TV as it dawned on me that it will probably have very weak sound since it is so thin:-

    Yeah I know, that is why I went with Bose. I just don't have the space as my living room is tiny so basically I have to get a sound bar vs. getting a home theater system.

    Got these now, TP-LINK TL-SG105 5-Port 10/100/1000Mbps Desktop Gigabit Steel Cased Switch:-

    I think I sold my other copy so also got this, I already have Reloaded and Revolutions:-
