but I am having a problem getting ARC to work for some reason, let me start with the components I use.
Samsung UN60ES7500: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN60ES7500-60-Inch-1080p-240Hz/dp/B0077Y50JS
Onkyo HTR591: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-mfDMzKSRJTm/p_580HTS5500/Onkyo-HT-S5500.html
Now, I went into my receiver and set it up for HDMI Control RIHD with ARC turned on.
So I go into my SmartHUB and try to watch netflix or pandora with the samsung Apps, my receiver kicks over to the TV/CD channel as I read that's what it does for ARC. So since it does this I can see that the signal is being sent from the TV to the receiver but I still don't get ANY sound... i've tried turning the TV volume up that didnt do anything, I don't know what the problem is.
P L E A S E H E L P im annoyed with this lol. TIA.
2) Make sure no other audio input is assigned to the TV/CD input on the Onkyo ( like Optical 1,2 or Coaxial)
I've had issues using ARC on my setup with my Onkyo and Panny, and I just prefer using the seperate audio cable.
On my Vizio, it requires that the TV speakers be set to OFF (not turned down, actually turned OFF) in order that it can reroute the sound through the HDMI cable.
Not sure if Sammy's require this but you may try it. I don't have my Sammy set up for Arc.
I only offer this because you indicated in your opening post that you turned the TV volume up :)
Perhaps you meant the receiver volume?
