Stuck bit in adv7612 BSTATUS register

This question is regarding the BSTATUS_2 register, offset 0x42 in the Repeater page of the ADV7612.

When I read this register bit 4 is always set.

For example I write 0x02 to the register and read back 0x12, write 0x24 and read back 0x34.

The bit is only set with an HDMI input connected. I have tried an HDMI signal generator, Chromecast, and a Bluray player.

I have verified the same behavior on two boards, so it is not a damaged chip.


Per the HDCP spec the field comprised by bits [6:0] of this register are the number of downstream devices & I should be

able to set this to any value from 0x00 to 0x7F.


Perhaps this is a known issue? Anyone else seen this?
