So I have the following setup in my living room:
TV: Samsung UN55ES7500
HTIB: Yamaha YHT-397BL
Devices: PS3, Time Warner Cable Box (Samsung), Apple TV2.
HDMI Cables: Redmere from Monoprice
Speaker Wires: 16AWG
I have all devices connected to the HTIB receiver thru HDMI 1,2 and 3 inputs and the HDMI output going to the Samsung TV's HDMI2(ARC). The setup is using ARC so no need for optical cable.
The issue I am having is with the Yamaha receiver. When I turn the receiver and tv on to watch cable, the input on the receiver shows HDMI1 (where the cable is connected), but after a few seconds it automatically switches to show source as 'Tv' AV1-4 and the sound stops coming. I need to hit HDMI 1 on the yamaha remote one more time to get the sound working again. This pretty much happens every time I turn the tv on.
Does anyone else experience the same problem? What's the solution to this? I have the tv mounted on top of a fireplace so I am avoiding running any more wires than I need to to the TV.
