Audio Return Channel Woes
Just recently set up my 7701 and seem to be having trouble with the Audio Return Channel function. I believe I have all the settings correct on both the TV (a Panasonic Viera TC-P65S60) and the receiver. I've set TV output in Viera Link to Home Theater, have verified in the 7701 that HDMI Control is on, and have set Control Monitor to Monitor 1, which is the connection being used to connect the TV.
Everything else seems to work other than actually getting sound through the 7701 - with the TV on, when I turn on the 7701, the TV stops producing sound (presumably because it's rerouting to the receiver). I select the source as TV, but no audio comes through. The volume control on the TV remote when used changes the volume on the receiver, so the link from the TV to the receiver is working. Just no sound. I've tried changing the audio mode (PLII/Stereo) and on the off chance I selected the wrong input, cycling through those as well (which not surprisingly didn't help).
The receiver otherwise produces audio with other input sources just fine. Any suggestions or thoughts on what I might be doing wrong or how I could further troubleshoot/fix, would be most appreciated.
