Turn the HDD recorder back on and it recognises the audio system is active and plays through the Receiver.
If the HDD Recorder is powered on and I turn off the TV is also turns off the Receiver (which is what I thought Control did).
I am confused that I need to have the HDD Recorder powered on, even when I'm only using the TV and Receiver.
Thanks for your help.
Ok, I am still a little confused as to what your'e saying but first, when u say tv, I assume u
Mean the tv input on the reciever which is a hdmi Input, what is the source u have connected to that? A cable box? I understand u have your'e recorder connected to the hdmi DVD input right?
So I think your problem is that when your done using your recorder whether u turn it off or switch the input back to "tv" it goes back to the tv speakers, that shouldn't happen unless your trying to turn the recorder of by the reciever, or turning the reciever off. The only reason it changes to to the tv speakers is because u have control with hdmi on, have u went to options on the tv, selected speakers and then selected audio system?, also, try turning off the control with hdmi and arc, and on your tv have you went to settings, channels/inputs, HDMI settings, device list, then select enable to send a ping to connected devices, it could also be that your'e recorder doesn't have control with hdmi and you'll have to use it with it off or connect it directly to your tv and use and optical and or digital coax for audio..
