Re: How to connect a Roku TV to a receiver using HDMI cable

Congrats.  HDMI control = CEC (consumer electronics control) handshake.  How's the lip sync?

Re: How to connect a Roku TV to a receiver using HDMI cable

Connecting an RX-810 to a Roku ##TCL 3-series. Was successful at getting sound through receiver to in-ceiling speakers BUT only the TV background sound?! The vocals sounds did not play.

Volume was cranked wayyyy up and wayyyyy down.

Any ideas?!?!

I did everything you did but no sound. Then I plugged in an optical cable and the sound was perfect.

Ok, I figured out the issue.  I needed to have the receiver set up to HDMI control.  Now sound comes through for everything.


@JJ4049 

What setting did you adjust on the receiver for HDMI control?

Re: How to connect a Roku TV to a receiver using HDMI cable

I tried four ways to connect the Roku TV to YAMAHA, no way to make it work.

It is a very bad design.

Re: How to connect a Roku TV to a receiver using HDMI cable

Having the same issue and that downgrade suggestion also did not work.    It seems like it has to be on the TCL Roku Tv side.    Maybe there is a download patch to upgrade this issue so that it is compatible with Yamaha receivers.      I now have two TCL monitors connected to Yamaha stereos (Master Bedroom & family room) and neither are connected to sound yet.
