ARC from this TV to AVRs is a little wonky

Unfortunately it STILL exhibits this problem of switching my receiver to the TV input when the TV is turned on.

What did you do to remedy the problem while still being able to send audio to the receiver from the TV for use with the smart hub apps? Maybe it will work for me too....

Sorry, dude. I didn't figure out a way. I gave up on Marantz HDMI ARC. That does mean I have lost getting the app audio going through the speakers.


But,
1) Skype on this TV doesn't work with ARC even if you have set up. It always defaults to the TV speakers anyway.


2) Most of what you see on Youtube is not 5.1 anyway, so the TV speakers are fine for that.


3) The TV's speakers are actually pretty good.


4) If you use Airplay and an iPhone with the Marantz, or the Marantz internet radio, you don't need any music apps from the TV.


5) The only thing you are really missing I guess is streaming movies from the TV's apps. But cable boxes, BD players, and game consoles all have these apps now also. Just use those. I do.


Hope that helps. Does seem like receivers are a little wonky on ARC. Hmmm.

And whats the input lag like, Is it double that of the latest curved model?. Any advice would be very helpful because I really want this tv for gaming but I'm scared to pay for a used tv. The PQ & sound is supposed be great apparently.

Game Mode on this TV is excellent. Lag is minimal; just be sure to bypass an AVR and connect your game box directly to the TV

I just got this too, and like you, it did not auto-update.


Does anyone know 1203 adds/fixes? I can't tell.

wts an AVR exactly?. I've just returned the Samsung 6400 because the PQ didnt look truly 'HD' to me, it looked average. Thats y I'm apprehensive because its the same brand but this 1s high end so should be quality. I heard it has a stunning picture like the W9

The 6400 you returned more than likely had a non - Sammy panel in it. The 8000 will blow it away.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll just deal with it. A firmware update could so easily fix this problem I really wish they would take care of it.

Seriously? Bastards!.No wonder the ps4 looked average on it. How can u tell if a tv has the right panel?. It was from pixmania, I couldn't return it & eventually had to sell it for a £300 loss. Didn't even support freeview hd in uk.
