I have two questions that hopefully one of you experts can help me with. Im not very good when it comes to setting electronics up.
1) How do I get sound to my receiver when playing the LG TV apps like Netflix? Do I need to hook up the TV to the receiver via the optical output?
2) When playing movies on the PS3, the sound is off. It's very noticeable. The sound happens before the action. I'd say maybe 1/4 of a sec off. Really weird to say the least. I've messed around with some of the options, but I havent tried too many things. (scared to screw it up worse lol) If I delay the speakers via the receiver options, it would affect more than just movie playback correct? Playing netflix thru my ps3 works fine, no delay whatsoever.
Do you think it's something wrong with the PS3, TV, or receiver? Or did I just miss a setting somewhere?
I just purchased the receiver and tv. Havent had the receiver hooked up to any other tv's.
Any help would be appreciated!
If your lg tv has ARC, you should be able to change the settings so it will output the sound into the receiver. Look for CEC or something like that in your menu.
Everyone else, I'm having a curious issue: I started playing portal 2 today, and it, all of a sudden, started doing a relay click (as if I was changing the signal into the receiver) and ended up trying to keep showing the signal but couldn't. It's done this one time before, but that was about a month ago. I'm using my ps3 right now to watch some video and it's working fine. I can't figure out why - last time I was able to get the problem to stop by cycling power to all systems, and changing some settings on the receiver (game mode off) and this time I changed it from upscaling everything to 1080p to doing a straight passthrough. I'll check it again later tonight, but does anyone have any experience with this sort of issue and a fix? Also, does anyone know how to make it so the receiver will pass audio in addition to video in passthrough mode? P
