Are you trying to pass HDMI source with receiver power off?
Go into receiver HDMI Setup menu and set HDMI Audio Out to "TV".
So you did resolve my issue. The moment I switched HDMI Audio Out to "TV" in my Denon X6300H, I started getting audio from TV.
Now, I have to ask. Clearly you are more knowledgeable about this then I am.
Here's my problem now:
My Denon X4300H has 2 HDMI outputs.
One goes to a 150" Projector. The other used to go to a Toshiba 4K TV.
An HTPC/Gaming rig & Xbox One X is connected as input sources to the receiver.
I have a Gaming Chair to which i send Audio to using the "headphones" output on the TV.
Ok, the way all of this is used is:
When we watch movies or TV shows or any type of media on HTPC or Xbox, we watch it on the big projector screen. Audio is always played on the 11.2 Dolby Atmos/DTS:X speaker system, i.e., the receiver.
When I Game, whether HTPC or Xbox, I do it on the 55" 4K TV. At this time the receiver would always stay Off/Standby Mode. The audio would go from TVs headphone jack to my Gaming Chair and played through the speakers on the gaming chair.
All of this worked without a Hitch on the Toshiba TV. I never used any ARC, any CEC settings. And my HDMI Audio Out was set to "AVR" from day one. Never touched it. Never touched any setting to make the above scenario work. It was out of the box, so to speak.
Enter, TCL 55R615 this morning, and the whole system breaks down.
Yes, after your suggestion, I can get audio to my Gaming Chair through TCLs headphone jack IF and only IF HDMI Audio Out is set to "TV" AND the receiver is on. It didn't work in Standby Mode.
This would be fine - Only - now when go to watch media on the Projector, I'll need to change it to AVR again to get audio from Receiver/Speakers. Then I go to play game, again, change to TV. I'll have to change this setting every time.
Furthermore, Receiver will need to be on for the TV sound to work.
So three million dollar question? Why was this not the case with Toshiba and all preceding sets I had? Why do I need to do this with TCL? What changed?
Thanks. I appreciate your support.
