Now I just recently purchased a 7.1 receiver and I'm using the HDMI ARC channels and now I have my cable box connected to my receiver instead of my TV. What puzzles me is the ARC should allow Audio to output from the TV to the Receiver but it doesn't while using the internet. I see that the TV has only one Optical output port on it but that still doesn't output any audio to my receiver when on the internet and all it's applications. Does anyone have similar issues? Please let me know if this can be resolved or not. Thanks.
Try this first, have everything connected HDMI to receiver than output HDMI to TV HDMI arc input 2. Now go to TV settings- Menu-setup-viera link settings-default speakers- and choose Theater. Than I don't know what receiver you have but on my onkyo I just enable ARC and it works.
Other option is optical which should work also. Optical to receiver.
