I see on the back of my samsung TV it has an ARC hdmi output (#2) currently I am running a onkyo rec. which has HDMI switching but no arc, so I have a single opitcal cord from the TV to the rec, however I was not sure with this as the optical cord is in TV in, when the rec. switches from cable to game would I lose my sound or is the optical cord only for sound coming out of the tv like when I use netflix?
My real question is today my Marantz sr 7007 arrives and I know it also is ARC capable. I am hooking up a cable box, apple tv and PS3 to the rec. and a single HDMI out to the tv how do I use the arc so I dont have to run opitcal cord?
sorry for such I new question.
