So, I have a 2012 Panasonic-VIERA-TC-P50U50-50-Inch-Plasma (w/ smart features) that is hooked up to a (2010)]Sony HDMI receiver. Everything works great. I turn the TV on and it communicates with the Sony receiver to change its input automatically to "TV" and then I easily hear the sound.

Recently, I got a new Onkyo Receiver (TX-NR535). I hooked it up to this Panasonic Plasma as well and it worked the same way as the Sony did; everything seemed well integrated.

Now, we redid another room that will sort of be a family room area. I got a real basic/inexpensive 55" RCA HDTV for this room and plan to hook it up to this new Onkyo receiver. This HDTV only has two HDMI inputs, 1 composite/component input and no "smart" features, but that is fine since it will be hooked up to the Onkyo receiver (6 HDMI inputs) & I have other components to stream stuff from.

I have initially hooked the two together, but they don't seem to be "talking" or fully communicating with each other the way they did with the Panasonic. I am thinking its because of the no-frills RCA TV I got for this area. I thought maybe this was a standard feature on all HDTVs these days, but maybe not. Or is there a specific feature I need to look out for (CEC, ARC, etc.)?

You need to look in the TV Menu for CEC or HDMI control, it might be there but not activated....

How about ARC

OK, I am not seeing anything about CEC in the manual (RCA model LED55C55R120Q), but it does have one HDMI port that has "ARC" on it. I googled this and it seems like its something along the same line. Is this correct?
