Okay. I had my cable box hooked to Viz HDMI 1 before I got Yamaha and that worked. If I change the Viz H-1 to the receiver, how do I connect the cable box. I cn't really check the sound unless the cable id working with TV.
Okay. I have H-1 from vizio to Yamaha H-out. and I have cable to vizio H-2. It is working (just need to adjust picture I think). However, still no sound to yamaha/ss speakers. Yamaha display indicates H-2 and is blinking lttle red "HDMI out" which I think means it is working. Since I switched the h cables, I canot get back to TV advanced audiio settings to verify...I just get "Find Channels".
I believe in Yamaha menu tv is set to Arc. the selection for TV audio input (same menu as where Arc setting is) allows for AV1-6, Audio 1 and 2; it is set on Audio 1.
TV is set to H-2
Yamaha set for H-1
Sound is out of TV.
Turned tv speakers off. Did not see anything re: ARC. Now there is no sound. Receiver display still indicates H-1 input.
Through Vizio menu . Advanced Audio > Digital Audio Out is now set to PCM; Audio Control set to External.
Through Vizio menu, TV settings > input source = Cable.
Through Receiver menu, ARC is On; TV Audio Input is Audio 1.
TV Speakers on or off is making no difference.
Sound continues to be only out of TV.
I will answer paragraph 1 of your last answer.
In Yamaha menu I am selecting Input = HDMI 1.
In Set Up: HDMI Control = On.. By clicking a couple more time I get HDMI Control menu that has ARC = On; Standby Syn = Auto; TV Audi Input + select from AV1 - 6, Audo 1 or Audio 2. There is no ARC selection here.
So, Paragraph 2. I do not find a "BD" as an input source on my receiver. The TV input is H-1. Please do provide your thought on the BD...
I am now getting the sound from ss speakers.
Cable into HDMI 1 on receiver. That seems to have been the fix. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX leave it all for now. If I have other questions, I will look for you here. Thanks again.
