Please detail exactly how you have the SHARC hooked up in your HDMI chain, noting device inputs/outputs. There is simply not enough information above to properly troubleshoot. Per the manual, yes, the USB power is required.OK guys, am looking for some help again. I know I`m dumb before anyone says
I got the SHARC delivered today.
Initially it seemed to work OK then realised it was USB power driven. Plugged it in and no sound. Manually switched the sound to internal then back to passthrough and eARC on. My TV doesn`t even pick up the picture from the AVR any more.
Powered everything off at the wall, started afresh but can`t get the Denon home page to show to restart my set-up of my peripherals.
What am I doing wrong and is the power to SHARC strictly necessary. I presume so or they wouldn`t have supplied the cable.
I can get sound but no picture with the peripherals.
