My question is, is there a way to have the "audio TV out" for only the cable while still allowing for for 5.1 for the movies? Other problem is when I have the "audio TV out" set to "off" when I turn the TV on it turns the receiver on to get sound i assume, which is annoying. Any help would be appreciated.
I have a similar question - just got all the cabling and everything set up, listening for the first time to my HT system and I'm completely blown away
luckily I have no frame of reference for anything better so I happy as a clam right now
I haven't even run audessey yet and I am still incredibly happy!
I do have a few questions, though: I am trying to set up the passthrough (similar to the situation above) but I don't get any sound from my tv when I turn my receiver off.
I have my fios box hooked up to the receiver with HDMI, upconverting to 1080p (I haven't noticed any problems so far with the upscaling). I have the receiver hooked to my tv (vizio 423xvt) with hdmi as well. I know that the 3xvt does NOT currently support ARC. Is this why I get no audio when I turn the receiver off? I don't really need surround sound most of the time when I'm watching tv, so I want to make sure that I am conserving power when possible
if this is the case I'll hook the receiver up to the cable box with optical or something.
Also, I am considering hooking up a PS3 via optical rather than HDMI. Will I be losing anything? I plan on using the ps3 as a blu-ray player and a gaming machine (obviously :P).
