Yamaha RX-A 103 & Panasonic VT30 50" Plasma ARC/HDMI handshake problem or incorrect setup ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there !

This is my first time posting here, so please be gentle.

I replaced an Onkyo HT-R980 AV receiver with a Yamaha RX-A 1030 av receiver.
TV is a Panasonic VT30 50" Plasma from 2010.

All HDMI cables are Supra and Audioquest.

I have connected from receiver HDMI out ( ARC able) to HDMI 2 in (ARC able) on the tv.

Other connections to the receiver with HDMI in are: Oppo 103 BD, PS3, and my precious HTPC.

With my older Onkyo av rec, I turned on the TV and the Onkyo with the TV remote, and sound from receiver through HDMI.

I was also able to shut both TV and AV rec off with the TV remote.


With my new Yamaha AV rec, only TV is turned on by TV remote.
When Turning the TV off with TV remote, also the Yamaha AV rec turns off.

Also I have the sound completely off sometimes, the sources on the receiver looks fine, audio 1 for TV and AV4 for Oppo 103 BD.

I have also tried to connect a Toslink cable from TV digital out to AV rec digital in, Audio 1. As an alternative to HDMI sound.

So i supect ARC/HDMI handshake problem or something is wrongly setup in either TV/AV rec or both ?

Any help deeply appreciated.

The HDMI-CEC (HDMI Control) feature will generally power OFF all devices but may not power them all back ON again .....just depends on how well the devices communicate with each other. You may want to consider purchasing a Harmony remote to get the job done.

For the HDMI(ARC) feature to work, the TV must have VierraLink enabled and the audio set to "External Speakers" or "Home Theater".

Viera link is now on, was off.
The setting is kept when i leave the menue and go back in.

I hit the Viera link button and changed: choice of speakers from TV to Homecinema.

But it is back on TV again when i go back and double check it ?!


Which Harmony remote is best regarding to fastest response ?

Got a Logitech Harmony Ultimate remote and couldnĀ“t be happier.
Everything is working as it should.
