Having ARC (HDMI/CEC) setup correctly can resolve delay issues from internal TV apps that Optical connections can introduce which may be the symptons that one guy is having with his TV's YouTube app.
As for the other guy who is having to set a different delay for each different disc format or app played on his K8500 I suspect that might have something to do with his AVR configuration but what surprises me most is neither of these guys have seeked out help on the thread applicable to their Receiver make and model.
But as I always say, to each their own.
For those that would like to explore setting up ARC on their Samsung TV and A/V Receiver, below is my step-by-step guide but please accept the fact that I am not the Helpdesk (unless you happen to own a Samsung TV along with the Marantz SR7005).
How do I set up ARC?
Ensure that you have an HDMI cable running between the ARC port on your A/V Receiver and the HDMI 4
port on your Samsung connect box.
Since all Receivers are different, please refer to the manual that came with yours in order to determine how to enable ARC correctly on it.
The following steps will now describe how to enable ARC on your Samsung TV...
1) Once you have your A/V Receiver configured, go into Menu >> System >> Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)
and turn it On
2) Now go into Menu >> Sound >> Speaker Settings
and change Speaker Select
. If you missed Step 1 the Receiver
option will be greyed out.
3) Next go into Menu >> Sound >> Additional Settings
and make sure HDMI Audio Format
is set to Bitstream
and Audio Format
is set to either Dolby Digital
depending on what format is being streamed from the source device.
: Since all A/V Receiver manufacturers implement ARC a little differently it is important that you read your manual carefully. For example, my Marantz manual says: To enable the ARC function, set “HDMI Control” to “ON”
and refers me to page 77 where the word "ARC" is nowhere to be found. But, if I open my eyes, the words "HDMI Control" are.
If you run into problems, please consider researching and posting your question(s) on the AVS Forum applicable to your particular A/V Receiver.
