No offense, but I joined AVS and been a huge follower of certain discussions.. Can the user KOTULCN please take the advice of the previous responders or go to PM on how to get your Xbox & Turtle Beach Headsets functioning since you're not using the proper hookup. My suggestion is, if you are not sure, contact Turtle Beach and have them tell you what you need to do since you have hooked up your X360 directly to your Plasma. More likely than not it's user error and not the fault of the HK 1700 or it's audio/video passthrough. As the unit offers 2 opticals and 6 HDMI inputs and most likely a proper sound field/source output when used
Thanks guys, love the info being brought here. I bought 2 of them, arrives Monday. I took the slower shipping method which was fine by me. As it gave me enough time to know about the Online Manual, Windows 7 AIr Play Setup Along with the full functionality of the 1700 Reciever along with the HDMI bridge station.. In all honesty this specific model is going to deliver all the goods and for the Best Buy Price of $200 there is no competiton what so ever.
I strongly suggest those that buy, do your research 1st before purchasing.The weight is not a problem as the audio is still top notch, The Full Manual is PDF, The Volume knob can be dimmed if desired. Using a IOS device volume is used only through that device,Not 100% HDMI pass through, as the AV1700 needs to be powered and audio needs to selected via OSD. My next post will be some of the sources I used to gain knowledge.. Hope this helps
Edit: OK post allowed. Again nothing personal hope to see this topic grow with wisdom. Edited by JAYSDAY - 1/6/13 at 1:32am
