Yes, and sorry, it's not my mother tongue.
Xbox goes to the receiver HDMI IN 3. The receiver - HDMI OUT 1 ARC - connected to the TV - HDMI 2 ARC.
I use Over-The-Air TV signal, so use the built-in digital tuner for watching TV. For the rest I use the TV's HDMI 2 port.
If I turn on the TV it should turn on the receiver (not working now) and when turn off should turn off the receiver (still working).
If I change the source back and forth on TV - HDMI <> Tuner - the receiver recognize so switch to HDMI (Xbox) or TV audio. But no sound on TV Audio. I tried the built-in media player, but no sound.
The Himedia & Xbox works well (home theater speakers).
BUT, when I turn off the Yamaha while use the XBOX or Himedia, the sound went through and the TV speakers worked. Now It's not. I have to change to TV Speakers and I have sound again.
The problem is between the receiver and the TV in the ARC line, because the rest still working, but I don't know which end, so the TV or the Receiver has the problem.
Finally got it. Figured it out, if the Xbox plugged in (but still off) I have the problem, but If I disconnect the Xbox HDMI or unplug the XBOX, everything is fine. Maybe an update the reason, but sill so strange...
