Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Samsung SmartTV.
Appreciate the additional information Mark.
Is the Samsung UN??HU6950 directly connected to an antenna or cable feed? ...or is there a cable box or satellite receiver used? If the latter, please describe how the cable box is connected to the TV using what kind of cable(s).
And is the HDMI cable rated for 1.4 please?
Unfortunately no. The HDMI cable must be specifically rated for 1.4 otherwise the ARC (Audio Return Channel) feature would not work; i.e. the sound would not be fed back to the Denon from the Samsung.
Please click HERE to view HDMI 1.4 specifications and note Audio Return Channel description of function.
And is the TV directly connected to an antenna or cable feed?
Bear with me; is the Denon's HDMI Control set to "On"? And the HDMI from the TV's HDMI IN 4 (ARC) connected to the Denon's HDMI OUT MONITOR 1 ARC?
Copy that and no prob.
Of course, the DVR can be connected to the Denon rather than to the TV as an alternative connection method.
