Maybe someone can help. First, check my signature to see my system. I want to take advantage of the split audio/video setting into CXU to be able (in a near future) to send 4k signal to my soon to be new tv knowing that my RSX-1562 receiver can not passes it through (hdmi 1.4a input and output) So I connected hdmi 1 (video only) output of the CXU directly into the tv for video. Then I connected hdmi 2 output of the CXU (audio signal) to hdmi 1input video 1 into rotel. No hdmi cable connected from Rotel output to tv input (unless to see the Rotel menu on screen to do the settings) . Now I go to the Rotel input setup menu to do the settings for input 1:
listen: hdmi 1
video intput : hdmi 1
audio input: hdmi audio
Result: image, no sound
listen: hdmi 1
video input: off
audio input: I can not choose hmi audio
Please note that I am in the same situation that one with a projector. How do you choose the settings for the hdmi in Rotel menu to get the sound through the receiver?
From Rotel owner manual:
AUDIO INPUT: assigns a physical input connection to use as the default
for the source displayed in the ﬁrst line of the menu. Can be OPTICAL
1–4, COAXIAL 1–3, ANALOG or HDMI Audio.
Note: HDMI Audio input is assigned to a specific VIDEO input.
When a digital input is the default, the unit will check for a digital signal
when the INPUT SOURCE is selected. If no digital signal is present, the
unit will automatically revert to the analog input.
When an ANALOG input is the default, the unit will not access a digital
signal, even though one may be present at the digital input; thus, the
ANALOG setting forces the unit to use an analog signal. Assigning a
digital input (with its auto-sensing) is generally the preferred conﬁguration
for any source with a digital output.
