, ARC (Audio Return Channel) has nothing to do with passing video through the receiver.
Denon suggested I try powering up the TV/DENON/SOURCE in this order and shutting them down in reverse order. This is not practical due to family and other distractions.
Agree with jdsmoothie, invest in a Harmony remote.
SO, I connected the source HDMI cables directly to the TV and the TV audio to the Denon by optical, but now only the front speaker work, although 5-1 works in setup.
Its because your Sony tv can only pass PCM (2 ch) audio (see OM).
Any advise before I throw in the towel would be appreciated!
- Try power down all components, unplug all power cords for about one minute, reconnect power cord then turn on tv, AVR and source.
- Check if tv has the latest firmware.
- Try resetting your tv.
