Question about the Onkyo Tx-nr906
After days of research i finaly decided to create an account here and make a post.
I recently got a second hand tx-nr906 and am trying to set up my home theatre system using the RIHD feature on the Onkyo AVR together with an ONKYO SP809 Blu Ray and a Sony Bravia LED tv.
Now everything works perfectly fine, except I cant seem to get the audio from the TV to go through my avr into my speakers.
The weird thing is, is that the Bravia recognizes the Receiver. As soon as I turn on the RIHD he immediatly switch makes an announcement: audiosystem active. I can even adjust te volume on my receiver using the Bravia's remote just no sound to be heard.
Now, I haven't found any confirmation on this but here's my guess on what the problem is: the tx-nr906 does not have an audio return channel (ARC) on the HDMI OUT. Eventhough it supports RIHD it seems to be only for interoperability between the different devices not to receive audio through the main HDMI OUT.
If this were to be correct all I have to do is get an optical audio cable and I should be good to go. BUT on the Onkyo website they say every receiver with RIHD should support ARC (audio return channel) and this is what keeps me guessing... .
Do any of you heve experience with hooking op a nr906 with RIHD? Does it indeed support ARC? If it does what might I be doing wrong?
