We're in a transition phase here in terms of how this stuff gets implemented... Sonos and others are using the app-based, mobile-device control scheme because (1) it's very good, and (2) it doesn't...

Yes, it's certainly possible there's a break in the wire (could have been hit with a nail). A more comprehensive cable tester would show you the distance to fault and what is wrong. Assuming this...

With it dialed in, and this being all digital channels these days, probably not. And I don't generally recommend fooling around with stuff that's working! :D

Yep, that's the issue. You won't get 5.1 and stereo audio output from HDMI at the same time. The source (cable box) has to deliver something that works on all attached displays - and can't send...

Yes, certainly it can. Definitely try removing the amp from the chain and see what you get from that 2-way split only. +26dB (I didn't check your math) is probably way too hot.

And why so many...
