I'm doing my REW for the first time today. Trying to get everything setup on my PC and having some issues. I'm an IT guy so usually this stuff would be a breeze, but I'm following the REW 101 Manual and when I plug my Windows 10 PC into the VSX-44 AVR, i get a picture on my TV, but no sound. If I plug the PC into the TV directly via the same HDMI cord, I get picture and sound out of the TV speakers. Am I missing something simple? If I turn the volume up - there is a rapid steady clicking sound coming out of the subwoofer.

Anyway, if the sub response is reasonable then what's going on with the centre speaker + SW interaction? What can I do to figure out what the issue is?

In post 19163, you show four graphs. Do the HDMI3 measurements include the sub as well?

OK, I am going to review how to properly label the measurements one more time. Hopefully it will stick this time.

There is an area associated with each measurement where you can enter description text, as in this example:




The text you enter will appear in the legend, as shown here:



And finally, when you capture the screen and select "Include Legend", the description is now clearly shown in your screen capture, as shown here:




Is this more clear now?

I would try reinstall your GPU drivers to see if that fixes your HDMI audio issues.

What GPU do you have installed? Are you using the correct HDMI port on the PC as mine has two (1 onboard and 1 pci-e).

Edit** Ignore that - your TV audio wouldn't work if the above was a problem.

Have you created an input on the AVR that has HDMI video and Audio as the input type?

Well, I'm using the GAME input on the AVR. I plugged the HDMI into my Macbook pro and get sound just fine (and picture). For some reason the Windows 10 PC (laptop) had some other "Dell Audio" program running. I uninstalled both devices and drivers and reinstalled the latest from Dell's website. Seems to work fine now. Now just waiting for the UMIK-1 to arrive from Fedex!

Got it, I'll do that in future.

Yes, the four graphs of hdmi 3 in post 19163 are centre channel plus SW.

I'm not sure if it helps but these are my dirac curves.

I have my centre grouped with my L and R but have separated them in one of the attachments to make it clearer what is going on.

Thanks
