I have a Marantz NR1506 home surround sound amp system but cannot get the Hisense Roku smart tv to connect with the Marantz equipment. I have attached a HDMI cable from the ARC socket on the rear of the Marantz device going into the HDMI 1 slot in the TV, but no joy, am I missing the obvious here or is there a trick to doing this?
ShaznDave, did you ever get this to work? I know you posted this a year ago, but I just purchase a TCL Roku TV and have run into the same issue. Resetting TV and the CEC settings didn’t help. The NR1506 shows up on the devices found list, though it has an asterix on it (I don’t like that).
The tv is volume and power is paired and controls the Marantz, I just don’t get sound when streaming from the Roku side.
I hope you didn’t end up replacing equipment. I love these little Marantz receivers. 🤞
