Does anyone out there have any experience with ARC (Audio Return Channel) I'm trying to set it up with my ONKYO HT-R590 and my LG 47LW6500 TV, I seem (at least I'm pretty sure) to have followed all the instructions from both manuals but all I get is silence.

I'm in the same boat with this receiver and an LG LM6700. Do LG TVs just not work with ARC?

Heh, right after posting this I discovered the solution. I just had to turn on Simplink. I originally ignored that option because it states it allows you to control other "LG" devices which I do not have. But enabling that option got ARC to work and the TV remote will even adjust the volume of the receiver when in ARC mode. You can find simplink under the input options of the TV.

ARC requires that HDMI-CEC be enabled on both the TV and the receiver. Consumer Electronic Control goes by all sorts of marketing names that vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

I just tried it - amazing it immediately worked, it even automatically changed the receiver input to TV/CD - why couldn't they have put that in the manual? Thanks for your help.

Hi Mick*Altanta, sure its in the manual. Read the "! Note" box under ARC Mode setting.

- The ARC mode only works on the HDMI 1 input on the TV
- Activates the SIMPLINK feature to use this feature

I've found it in the manual now and have been suitably chastised by my wife - who I'm always accusing of not reading the manual properly. Thanks for your help everyone.
