Help Newbie Sequence of Setting up New E650i-B2 & refurb components
Oh Boy, I am at a standstill as I don't quite know where to start setting up my new home entertainment system.
I have the 65" E650iB2 new, a refurb Denon S700W, a refub Sony BRP. Sony VCR-DVD player 2 Apple tvs, a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5 and a LG 2 TV NAS Drive for Plex. Latest iTunes.
From what I've read I need to factory reset the Denon and the Sony to wipe out old settings.
I want to hook up all my components via the AVR ARC to TV ARC. so I get the sound out of my speakers all the tim. Everything I have hasas HDMI
This is only TV we have and I believe you only get one shot at setting it up with the help screen. I could be wrong...
Only thing is the Quick set up for the TV tells you to hook everything up first so the TV recognizes it. Gads....I need to get that TV plugged in first to even see if it works or have to take it back. The box was horrible shape so I'm worried about that.
My thoughts (could be totally all wrong) Hook only the TV up to the over the air antenna, then plug the TV and rotating antenna in. Turn those two things on and go ahead with set up (trying to avoid the Yahoo give up all your rights to privacy,) Then calibrate the TV color and audio from the settings I got here, (that you so much for those!!) I've never calibrated a TV so this will be a first.
Look forward to hearing from y'all. I figure it is better to ask first than be sorry later I did it wrong. Please know I am a newbie to all of the stereo stuff and TV, but totally am expert with the Mac computers and running the network, wireless or not.
Thank you all in advance
