Hi all,
Sorry to spam (I have posted variations of this to the GT50 owner's thread and to my own thread under the AVR section of the forum -- see quote box below), but I was wondering whether anyone else has had issues with the GT50 and getting sound to run to the receiver.

I tried all ARC related connections to the new RX-V573 I bought the same day as the GT50 (65" -- so beautiful); I got return audio from TV to the AVR maybe 3 times out of 20. Totally intermittent.

I swapped out HDMI cables just to check. No dice.

I've added a toslink cable to my AVR -- STILL NO difference!

I spoke to Panasonic, who thinks that it is the AVR's fault; I spoke to Yamaha, they think it's the TV.

I'm now at the point of 1) either trying a different AVR (anyone have thoughts on Denon v. Pioneer Elite v. Onkyo) or 2) having Panasonic come out to service th TV, which is just SO SAD I can barely think about it.

Thoughts? Support? Ideas?

Anyone had similar problems with this TV? Anyone else have this configuration of TV and AVR??

Thanks so much for giving me a place to vent -- this is driving me bonkers.

I JUST got my GT50-65 on Saturday and was logging on here because I have not been able to get a consistent ARC feed back to my (also just purchased) Yamaha RX-V573 AVR.

I have tried everything, including returning the Yamaha for a new unit because I thought the problem was there (not so, apparently). I have tried swapping out new HDMI cables, I even added the optical cable -- nothing seems to work. 9 times out of 10 I get no audio feed from TV to AVR.

I have called Panasonic this morning, they talked me through steps and got nowhere; I called Yamaha, same thing. I may hit Best Buy on way home and get a different AVR just to see if that works.

Anyone else have thoughts? It sounds like this is a running issue now with this model, but it's amazing that even with an optical cable I couldn't get an audio feed from TV to AVR. This doesn't seem like it should be complicated.

Seriously, WTF?

I too love the display, had it professionally mounted (and at 65" I can't move it around), but this is freaking ANNOYING -- so distracting to have things *not work the way they should!*

Not that anyone jumped up, but the issue was resolved through the Viera Tools menu on the Panny.

All is well in heaven and on earth!
