Audio Out from Samsung TV to AVR using HDMI

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi All

I am struggling to setup the audio out from my Samsung UE37ES67 to my Onkyo NR414 AVR.

I did not put an optical cable behind the walls so I would like to be able to do this vias HDMI. From what I have read it would appear possible by connecting the HDMI lead to the port 2 which is also the ARC port. I have therefore connected the TV from the HDMI 2 port to the Port 6 on my Receiver which I have setup to be TV.

The main reason for me needing to do this is so that I can listen to the interactice services on the TV via the surround setup.

Is this even possible and if so what am I doing wrong?!

Thanks in advance

you are misunderstanding what you need to do... smile.gif

"arc" works over the SAME hdmi cable that goes from your avr's OUTPUT to the tv... you don't connect the tv to an INPUT port on the avr...

connect your avrs OUTPUT port to the arc enabled INPUT port on the tv, and you should get what you want... smile.gif

Bingo - thanks for that - there's been lots of swearing at the telly today!

Any idea why I can only change the sound settings on the amp and not via the remote whilst on TV mode?

Thanks again - much appreciated!

nope, that part i can't help with... not familiar at all with the units, so i'd just be throwing stuff against the wall hoping it would stick there...

No probs - thanks all the same. It's strange as I can change the settings on both the front panel and via the iphone app but not from the onkyo remote itself!
