Good tips. ThanksI tried turning off CEC on my receiver, that didn’t do it. For now the workaround has been to disconnect the Sharc’s usb power when I want to use the tv’s speakers and plug it back in when I want to use the receiver. Doing this automatically switches the tv’s output audio without me having to go into the menu which is what I want. I emailed tech support and told them I might get a cheap USB On/off switch off amazon so I’m not constantly unplugging and they said it was a good workaround for now and wouldn’t damage the unit or void the warranty.
Speaking of the tech support I have to echo the statements here of a few people and mention how excellent they are in responding. Sometimes I’d get an email alert in the middle of the night even. It’s unparalleled tech support this day and age.
Evil Boris from HDTVTest did mentioned in our AVSForum that the C9 does have BFI that can refresh at 120Hz when you have a 120Hz source. This includes it refreshing at 120Hz BFI at 1440p and 4K as well when he tested with the Club3D DP 1.4 to HDMI 2.1 adaptor to get 4K 120Hz running on the C9.
For HDR, 100 is correct. For SDR I have it at 30.After a week of researching, I finally got my C9. Is there a recommended OLED Light setting? One of the videos in youtube (iirc tech giant) recommended 100 but presumably, this can lead to burn in and other issues in the long run.
The audio return channel (ARC) is used so you can play audio FROM your TV through your AVR. Your Yamaha is being automatically switched to AUDIO 1, because that is how it receives the audio FROM your TV (the TV's internal OTA tuner, internal apps, and any devices connected directly to the TV) over the ARC HDMI cable. For any devices that are connected directly to your Yamaha AVR, you must select the appropriate input (such as AV2 for your cable box). If the cable box were connected to the TV instead, then you could use the ARC over HDMI OUT 1/ARC/AUDIO 1.I have the 77C9 and a Yamaha A2080. I have my hdmi from cable box to AV2, PC to AV3 and PS3 to AV1. I have the hdmi out from Yamaha going to the arc in on the tv. When I turn the tv on it triggers the Yamaha to come on but the Yamaha defaults to audio 1. I have to switch the Yamaha to AV2 in order to get sound. Why is the Yamaha going to audio 1.
