Then I know it's working if in my avr I have the 'Multi Ch In' option available in the AVR.
Yes I tried many times, it won't work no matter what. (plugged PC to TV HDMI 1 and HDMI2 with cable to AVR HDMI out).
Windows sound settings (speaker setup) detects the TV and AVR as "TV Speakers". IT will ONLY do 2.0 Stereo - but instead of the TV speakers - will use the 2 front Speakers I have plugged into the AVR.
No matter what I did - I can't bypass the AV-R.
Windows insist to display only 2 speakers, no options to choose from, because I don't have the PC connected directly through the AV-Receiver. This was always an issue with every TV I had (even with Optical btw). Seems the TV doesn't know to tell the PC it needs 5.1 or it simply can't do 5.1 surround.
Do you need to have specific settings? Or did you plug through AVR?
So I have 2 major issues now:
1) Connecting PC to and through AVR and into TV - I can't get 4K 60HZ and HDR with Deep Color ON.
a) Receiver on standby: it works 4K 60HZ HDR.
b) Connected directly to TV: it works.
c) connected through AVR and disabling Deep Color (which is absolute must have): it works.
I don't understand why my AVR insist to send a 1080p DVI signal when it's virtually impossible for it to do so, and only with this TV.
2) I can't do a workaround, "alternative" or even temporary solution - because I can't plug the PC directly into the TV and send Audio back in ARC and still get full surround 5.1.
Windows only does 2 speaker stereo. Even the Atmos App option won't work. Tried different Sound Settings in the C9 - but still shows "TV Speakers" and Stereo 2.0.
I heard many people doing BYPASS and sending audio only back with ARC (not passing through AVR) - but it never works for me. Ideas?
I really really need help guys, and it's quite urgent because I might need to return the TV.
Also the service lab for Onkyo tells me it will take up to 10 days at to check - they are quite trash it seems.
