Hi JD - with the Denon x5200 and ARC enabled, if you set this option to "off," that only affects your tv from switching to TV Audio when first turned on, correct? In other words, ARC will work fine once you go to a TV apps source or OTA. I believe I need to change this setting to off as my tv always gives me a notification that it's switching to external speakers upon booting up with my cable source.
Also, do both optical and ARC do DD+, which can handle Dolby Atmos from streaming sources? Any difference in compression or sound quality between ARC and optical on the x5200?
