Changed out TV from a Sony to LG..everything runs thru the receiver..TV on HDMI2 and PS3 on HDMI1. Well when I turned on the old Sony the receiver would come and play on HDMI2..just like it was suppose to. Now when I turn on the new LG, receiver comes on but starts on AV4 then I have to change it to HDMI2 manually..how do I get it to start on HDMI as the old one.
post #2047 of 2142
My Vizio TV does the same thing b/c I am using ARC. That I am aware, there is no way to change this within the receiver b/c the receiver powers on to the desired HDMI input - but the TV switches it to AV4 b/c of ARC.

That is a pretty common problem and your solution is what most people do.

I have my Blu-Ray player on HDMI 1, DirecTV receiver on HDMI 2 and Xbox 360 on HDMI 3. I am running Toslink to AV4 for ARC from my Vizio TV, and the Vizio is set up for audio control. I still have to manually switch to whatever HDMI input I want after everything turns on.

Is there something else that I can do to avoid this?

Not that I know of.

That's what I figured - short of spending a few hundred on an IR/RF, macro-capable remote like a Harmony. For that amount of money, I can live with pressing an extra button.

I to will live with pressing the extra button...I suppose I could run a Toslink to AV4 an just use that...does Toslink support 5.1 ?
post #2054 of 2142
It supports 5.1, but not 7.1. Toslink only supports Dolby Digital and DTS, not Dolby Digital Plus or DTS-MA. Also, I believe you lose audio auto sync from the receiver if you do not use audio via HDMI.

If you use toslink only for the internal apps on the tv as suggested then 7.1 and DTS MA are not supported anyway. The only sacrifice would be DD+ and I doubt you could ever tell the difference between DD 5.1 and DD+ 5.1.
post #2056 of 2142
Somewhat confusing to me..but anyway I dont think its worth the trouble taking the TV down to run a cable behind the wall..as long as my wife learns which buttons to push Ill be ok:)
post #2057 of 2142
ARC?...I have my cable box to HDMI2 and PS3 to HDMI1 and HDMI out to TV. Simple set up..my question is when I connect the TV to the internet I get the video but the sound is still whats coming in from the cable box..I thought if the TV received sound it would pass it back to the receiver and I would hear that. Both ARC is set to on on the TV and receiver..any ideas.

And this
post #2063 of 2142
There may be other steps required to get ARC working, such as enabling external speakers on the TV. You also need to make sure the HDMI input you are using on the TV is capable of ARC. Most TVs only have one ARC input.
post #2064 of 2142
Yes..Ive checked both...
post #2065 of 2142
As others have indicated, ARC can be squirrelly. There is almost certainly some combination of settings that will work, although it may never work as well as you like. Optical is cleaner and more reliable, but if running the extra cable is not in the cards, then ARC will be the way to go despite its flaws.

Thanks..probably will do that,,when I feel like taking to TV down

No. Do the settings actually change? What do you mean reapply them? Are you actually rerunning YPAO?
