Thank you both, helvetica bold & HockeyoAJB. And the setup you described is exactly what I have going on, HockeyoAJB. After fiddling around for an hour or more last night I gave up. I woke up this morning and it's all working. I have to assume a full power cycle on the PS4 was what 'fixed' it as that's the only thing different this morning than last night. I should've remembered to reboot the computer...

And now that I have it working, I can even turn off CEC on the Vizio, but as noted I do need to leave it on in the receiver. And thankfully my old Logitech Harmony can handle all the input switching brilliantly.

I'm just going to post this as a mental note:
1 - PS4 to HDMI5 on Vizio (game input)
2 - Vizio HDMI1 (ARC) to HDMI out A (ARC) on receiver
3 - Receiver HDMI control on, off on Vizio
4 - TV input selected on Receiver

Thanks again!

I already posted this question on a different thread, but it seemed good to ask this question here.

I own a Sony STR-DN1040. My front left and right speaker are full range with built in powered subwoofer. On my receiver, I set the front L+R speakers as full range and disable the subwoofer out (I don’t have a separate sub). The rest of my speakers are set to small and crossed over at 90Hz. All the bass is routed to my front left and right. This leads me to my question.

In order to use my new Earthquak MQB-1 tactile transducer, I will need to use the subwoofer line out on my receiver. If I enable the subwoofer out, will ALL low end frequency for my center and rear speakers be routed to the subwoofer line out or will the front left and right still receive LFE from the other speakers? I want to keep the LFE from my center going to my front L+R speakers. How do I keep the LFE going to my fronts L+R speakers?

Okay, I was able to connect my front speakers and still send them a full signal. I posted how I did this in the following post:

Tactile Transducer Setup Post

I know sony has released three updates to this model, but I still hope they send out firmware updates to keep this one up to date. Plus, after looking into the reviews of the "newer" modals, it seems the DN-1040 still provides a cleaner signal at higher levels. Look at the reviews from Sound & Vision and check the test bench.
