I'm trying to get the HDMI-CEC to work on my Samsung UN55B7100 LCD TV and my Onkyo NR5007 receiver. I've turned the HDMI-CEC on in the receiver and the AnyNet+ on the TV. When I "discover devices", it finds a "Receiver" in the discovery phase, but does not populate it in the found devices.
Does anybody have any suggestions or ideas on how to get this thing to work?
The Anynet works fine wtih my Samsung PN58C7000. Volume control is fine.
Be sure you enable the HDMI funcations you want in the Receiver (volume/on off I presume).
In addition, you made need to start over, delete device, and plug in the HDMI in the HDMI-CEC order suggested.
I struggled until I read the manual and some posts. I think it is TV first -> plug in Onkyo OFF, Onkyo ON wtih HDMI -CEC. Enable Anynet -> SCAN.
I think the 5007 and the 608B should be similiar
For some strange reason, I enabled the CEC on the receiver again, then went into the TV and enabled it in there. It automatically found the receiver and added it. Strange stuff.
Is there a way to disable the Samsung onscreen menu for the volume control? I have the Onkyo receiver volume pop up at the bottom of the screen, but now it also pops up with...
"TX-NR5007 | "
Thanks for the response and the information.
I eagerly await the new Apple TV, I bet they can make something SEAMLESS that works every time.
There's lots of positives to HDMI, but I do wish things would work better. But like every new technology, it's deployed first and does not play well with others. Hopefully, over the years, things will be refined and work in harmony...
first few days I dint understand how to get it(anynet/ARC) ,worried much that am unable to get sound from receiver for tv apps like netflix and USB movies.
SOLUTION-JUST GO TO SETTINGS-HARDWARE IN LIST-TURN ON HDMI/RIHD..SIMPLE
still u have problem mail me
I have Onkyo TX-SR508 that worked perfectly fine with my old TV. I recently got Samsung UE-55F6340 and I am having a tough time to get audio via Onkyo. Video works perfectly fine and when i tried to configure AnyNet, it recognizes the device at the scanning stage and thereafter it does not appear in the list.
I have connected in HDMI2 which has ARC.
