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.
What you are experiencing is more than likely an incompatibility with ARC/CEC. Anynet+ is Samsung's version of CEC. Both require an HDMI connection so if there is an issue with one, it will probably affect the other. CEC (Consumer Electronic Control) is a great idea but the current iterations have lots of problems. The reason is simple. The CEC protocols are not standardized. Many are optional so the mfrs can pick and choose what they want to incorporate into their devices, and that leads to incompatibilities across product lines, sometimes even within the same mfr. There are no firmware upgrades or patches that will make incompatible devices play nice. And there is no way of knowing which devices will work correctly, and continue to work correctly, with each.
A lot of us gave up a long time ago and use an optical cable to receive audio from the tv to the receiver when using the internal ATSC tuner of the SmartApps and use a programmable remote, such as a Harmony, for simple, universal control of the HTS.
Once the fully implemented HDMI 2.0 hardware specs are finalized and incorporated into all newer devices, the CEC problems should go away because the mfrs will have to use a single set of protocols called CEC Extensions. However, that means that all of your connected HDMI devices will also have to have the finalized HDMI 2.0 hardware specs as well.
