I have a Mac, but used the iPhone app (with the iPhone internal mic) and it worked very well. rolldog, you might want to give the app a shot if you have an iPhone.

I honestly don't think my problem is the cables since I old Marantz receiver will pass 1080p60 but the Anthem MRX720 will not. The 720 has no problems passing 1080p on my appletv or ps4pro but maybe the 1080p60 is the culprit, who knows! Just seems really odd. I do have a mix of cables, some 10GB and some 18GB, but I guess this is a process of elimination until I find the culprit. Glad to see Blue Jeans is on Amazon so I can have them before the weekend. I just don't want to get a year down the road and have a new 4K TV and the 720 not be able to pass higher resolution 4K video. At least Anthem has a 3 year warranty. Other than that and learning new terminology, the AVR sounds fantastic, my wife even mentioned that she could hear subtle detail that she would have never heard on the Marantz.

Still no reply from Anthem technical support.

Problems could be:
1) New Cable box (XG1v4);
2) Cables;
3) Handshake issue; or
4) AVR.

Are the Blue Jeans FE cables fairly flexible?

1080p60 seems like it could push the bandwidth requirements. Does anyone know how to calculate this? Some posts give general guidance for high speed cables but it would be nice to see the math and assumptions behind that recommendation.

"Fairly flexible" is perhaps a bit subjective. All of my HDMI cables are BJC Belden Series-FE but I don't put any hard angles on any of them -- at most, a big "U" shape -- preferring instead not to stress the cable or connection point. Sounds like you might have some cabinet or space constraints that create challenges. Can you confirm? If so, it would be interesting to see what others are doing to manage this.

Just one more upgrade and things will be perfect.

Agree regarding bandwidth. No hard angles but I do have to snake the cables around some corners in my BDI Ola cabinet. I have a few HDMI right angle adapters. Speaking of hard angles, anyone know if the right angle HDMI adapters degrade the signal quality?

Are you connected directly to your router via ethernet, or are you connected wireless?
I have my Anthem hardwired into my network, while I'm using my Microsoft Surface Book 2 on WiFi. I checked the port settings on my router, and I don't have any else using this port. One thing the ARC software mentions when it starts up is to make sure that nothing else uses the receiver's IP control. Everything in my house is IP controlled since everything is running on a Control4 system. I wonder if this might be causing the issue? I could unplug any devices hooked up to the Anthem when I run ARC and see if this fixes the problem.

Certainly give it a shot by disconnecting everything else, process of elimination. Have you tried it on wifi exclusively? Disconnect it from the router and see if it will work wirelessly at least. Can't help you with the Control4 aspect, above my paygrade, though I do see on Anthem's support site something about drivers for the AVM60 and Control4. Dunno what that is.....looks to be categorized as Remote Codes, so likely not gonna help your issue if I were to guess. This all might be worth a call to Anthem.....

Noticed that the android app is finally working again for my 1120.

Go to Google play and type Anthem MRX 2 and it should come up.

You can control the unit from your phone now. (it's about time!).

With the recent firmware update and improved app everything seems to be working really well for me... I"m happy.

After doing a hard reset of the MRX-720, can I reload my ARC calibrations or do I have to recalibrate? Thanks

So, I’ve done a little detective work. I took the HDMI cable that was connected from the 720 > Panasonic plasma and connected it directly from the cable box > Panasonic plasma and switched the resolution in the cable box from 1080i to 1080p60 and it has a great picture, not a single flicker.

I then did a system reset (select and main power buttons at the same time) and reconnected the 720 to the plasma and the same problem persists, 720 will not pass through 1080p60, only 1080i.

I can rule out the TV and cable box. So...is this an AVR, handshake or HDMI cable issue?

I’m so frustrated!!

I take it if you choose "DTS neural X" as the multi channel option, and you give it a Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 it will use neural X to upmix it, or would it only upmix if DTS? Not to mention there is also a separate "DTS Neural X mode" setting in the Input settings that has no mention in the manual other than the menu screenshot.
DTS Neural X is the DTS upmixer.
Dolby Surround is the Dolby upmixer.

Personally, I use "dolby surround" across the board for movie mode set in the input.

DTS and Dolby provide code libraries in the processor. The upmixer will upscale the content (whatever it is) to either atmos (Dolby surround) or DTS-X (dts neural x). If the content is 2 channel, it will upscale it to full atmos and does a pretty impressive job. You can walk around and hear things like only voices coming from the center etc.

The upscaler will pass through and not upscale dts-x or atmos when in say "dolby surround" mode and receiving say dts-x. So you can set something like dolby surround and just forget it.

Where you run into problems is if your source upscales first. For example, if you have a PC or xbox and installed the atmos app, then the source will send atmos to the receiver and since it receives atmos it will do no upscaling. Another example, you have your pc set to 7.1 sound and play back a mkv with AAC 2.0. Because AAC is not recognized by the receiver it will not be bitstreamed so the PC will decode it. Because it's 2 channel audio, the PC will populate the left and right front channels with the 2 channels from the AAC 2.0 sound track. Then the 7.1 output from the PC will get sent to your receiver with only front left and front right channels populated. The receiver will *not* upscale this because rather than receiving 2.0 audio, it's receiving 7.1 audio but with only 2 channels populated. The correct solution here is to set the PC in this case to 2.0 speaker setup then play back the sound track. Then the receiver receives 2.0 and does the full upscale.

Due to the above, you want to set your source where possible to 2 channel stereo and bitstream every known format. The ones that can't be bitstreamed get sent in 2 channel mode this way and get upscaled by the dolby surround upscaler.

OK this is really weird. I have had a "bootleg" copy of this app for my Samsung phone for three months (Anthem sent me a copy). Well that version has been working just fine, but I was waiting for the "official" version to come out. I loaded the official version and it works, however there is something missing: My bootleg version has two addition settings screens that you can access my swiping to the right. These include pretty much every control you could want. I don't see this in the new version. Just a single page.

Anthem: Is this an issue?

Can you be more specific about the missing controls? From what I can see I can do everything the app used to be able to do and what the remote does. What I like about the app is that is displays the bitrate of the sound when you use it for tv.

Love 'em! Especially the 55C center. I think they sound great in my space, and the look works for me and the missus. Although not a perfect speaker, they offer tremendous performance for the price point in my opinion.

OK this is weird and may be only an issue on my phone as I had a bootleg copy to start with.

When I first installed the official app it of course showed up on my home page, and was named "Anthem MRX 2". When I opened it only the first page was accessible (Input / Volume / Zones).

So now when I look at my home page the app is called "Anthem MRX" (The "2" has dropped) and it has the same three pages my bootleg version has.

Well never mind I guess... As long as the official version has three separate screen I am good to go.

Where do you get the working remote? I got sent one from anthem but it wouldn't load on my tablet (not sure what Android version the beta supports, or if they sent me a dud apk).

You mean the remote app, I downloaded mine from the App Store. I downloaded both of them and deleted the one that didn’t work.

Ah right I see there are two separate ones listed now - The Anthem MRX Remote by Anthem Electronics, and the new one by Paradigm Electronics.

For me neither of the two android apps work. The old one just endlessly tries to connect, the new one permanently gives me "device disconnected" errors.

Yeah, just downloaded the iPhone app last night, was surprised to see how FAST it found the AVM, compared to other apps I have looking for their corresponding devices. It's pretty cool actually. Does what I expect of it, though my preference is for the actual remote since I've got line of sight right to the AVM. Might use the app more at night...

I normally would not need an App based remote, but have found a good use for it.

I have my Sony X800 connected using both HDMI outputs. HDMI1 is for video only and goes directly to my display, and HDMI2 is audio only going to the Anthem. Long story as to why I am bothering with that, but suffice to say it relates to display input tweaking for SDR converted 4K/HDR content on my non-4K Panny Plasma.

Since I can't see the Anthem GUI on the display over that input, the remote app lets me tweak things on the fly without having to change inputs on the TV, which is seriously bad show when watching a film with the family unit. I can tweak like crazy and no one need know.

That is one cool looking right angle adapter. I don't need one with my gear today but it's nice to know such products exist.

Just one more upgrade and things will be perfect.

I then did a system reset (select and main power buttons at the same time) and reconnected the 720 to the plasma and the same problem persists, 720 will not pass through 1080p60, only 1080i.

I can rule out the TV and cable box. So...is this an AVR, handshake or HDMI cable issue?

I’m so frustrated!!

HDMI cables are such a pita. Can't wait for the move to HDMI 2.1!

You mentioned having a mix of 10GB and 18GB cables. Have you tried using only the 18GB cables on the entire path that's giving you issues?

BTW it might prevent some headaches by upgrading all of your cables to certified high speed as Anthem calls out pretty much as a requirement on page 10 of the manual. While the old cables seem to work well with other gear, Anthem gear seems fussier about this. It doesn't have to be expensive, either. Monoprice sells a 3' certified premium high speed cable for about $4. I've been using Blue Jeans Cable Belden Series-FE which is also certified high speed and it works well. (No, this is not an ad.)

All of that said, replacing cables isn't guaranteed to fix your issue, but it would eliminate a potential source of problems.

How long are your HDMI runs?

Just one more upgrade and things will be perfect.

You may not need to buy 2.1 cables when it's time anyway: https://www.techhive.com/article/325...cy-cables.html
