Anthem MRX-520 ARC problem
I recently purchased a new Anthem MRX-520 receiver. I have a Samsung PDP60 TV, and a Rotel 200watt 5 channel power amplifier. Also, a PlayStation 3, Techniks CD player, and a computer. My speakers are Paradigm Studio 100. Trying to perform the Anthem Room Correction (ARC) software with the supplied microphone, it constantly gave me an «0x03 measurement was not able to acquire a proper response » error. The right speaker would start the frequency sounds, and then after a few seconds, it would stop and give me the error. I tried doing the individual speaker test, and each one worked without problem. I ended up doing the ARC with the IPhone with no problem. I returned the Anthem and received a new one, but with the same result with ARC. I swapped 2 different speakers (used the right, then left, then the centre) with same error. I also by-passed the Rotel, using the Anthem directly, but with the same result. The store that I purchased it from tested my returned Anthem and performed the ARC without any issues. I’m also having other problems now. Friday evening I listened to a music CD on the computer for a good half-hour without any problem. Then on Saturday, while surfing with the computer, the signal would fail, giving me a black screen with writing from the TV saying no signal. I turned the Anthem off and then on, and within minutes, the signal (computer) would fail again. I then switched the hdmi cable from Anthem to TV from (TV) hdmi 2, to hdmi 1. I was then able to use the computer without any issues. The problem with this is that I am now not able to control the Anthem volume with my Bell Canada cable box remote. Having it connected to hdmi 2, I was able to control the Anthem volume, but not on hdmi 1, it then controls the TV sound which I do not use. Any ideas what’s going on here? I would appreciate any feedback on this. As a side note, the Anthem MRX-520 sounds incredibly good. Thank you.
