I am trying to connect the my new Pyle PFA540BT to my Roku TV. The receiver should work as I can play music from my phone through the ceiling speakers that came with my home. I have tried 2 different HDMI cables and cannot get the Roku TV to play though the ceiling speakers. I plug the HDMI cable into the ARC port on the Roku TV and the HDMI port on the Pyle receiver but it still won't work. Can anybody help me? Please?
I've seen people say using a different cable can fix such problems (apparently not all HDMI cables are the same). Also, in home>settings>tv inputs, you can change the HDMI mode from auto to a specific version. I think I've seen someone say that fixed a problem.
There's HDMI "extractors" that will split the audio out to a coax or optical cable, if your Pyle could accept that. Maybe that would be a way to make it work?
