ok, I am not sure I understand why there are several devices in the
first place. Can you elaborate on what these 4 devices are? Can all
these devices be used concurrently with different streams,ie up to 4
independent HDMI outputs/cables? Or is each device stereo only, and
the hardware will multiplex channel pairs on the same HDMI link?
