I just purchased a Sharp Elite PRO-70X5FD LED LCD TV. It has the Netflix app. When I click on Netflix, the Elite will display the video, but it will not provide sound thru the HDMI cable. I am able to get sound thru the speakers in the Elite, if I turn on the internal speakers.
Here's what the Elite manual says:
AUDIO RETURN CHANNEL
This function allows you to listen to the TV audio via audio equipment without using an optical fiber cable, which conventionally is required.
REQUIREMENTS FOR USING AN ARC-COMPATILBE AV AMPLIFIER:
ARC-compatible AV amplifier connected to the ARC-compatible HDMI terminal (HDMI 1). (Refer to the operation manual of the ARC-compatible equipment for details.)
Use of an ARC-compatible cable.
AUTO:You can listen to the TV audio with ARC-compatible audio equipment.
OFF: This fuction does not work.
If the TV audio cannot be output from the AV amplifier even after making the necessary setting, connect the TV to the AV amplifier with an optical fiber cable and select "off".
So guys, am I missing something? I believe I have the setting right on the Elite (any Sharp Elite owners out here?). I've talked to Elite on the phone and she said it most likely is the receiver. To make sure the HDMI cable is qualified, I bought a AUVIO cable from Radio Shack that says: Auvio cables incorporate HDMI Ethernet channel, Audio Return Channel, 3D and 4K technology.
If I'm watching Directv and click on Netflix, the Elite screen will now show Netflix, but the sound will continue to be what's on Directv.
Does the D2v acknowledge ARC - Audio Return Channel?
I have, v2.10 update. I believe that is the most current?
Life is a garden, dig it.
