Hi . I have problem. When using ARC the AVR audio will stop after each video segment. So one option I added optical and turned ARC off (also moved HDMI to port 1 for input only to TV (55C803)). However after lots of setting changes I still do not get any audio over the optical at the AVR (yahama v-375). But best solution would be to make ARC work without shutting audio off after each segment. For example watch Crackle start movie then must switch AVR to another AV then back to AV set for HDMI ARC. When a commercial starts the audio at the AVR goes off. Must do the AV port change again. And again when next movie segment starts. And so on...
Please help P.s. sugest y'all have a test audio page in system settings that would send test sounds . Thanks
Yes I have the same fix (swutch AV ports to recover audio). (Roku:55C803) Hope to get advice how to fix right. No joy right now. And when I tried optical there was no audio at all. I looked at your link it sound like same issue. Let me add an observation. I can see the AVR is live for audio while I surf Roku. As soon as I select a segment the AVR does a recycle of sound settings and the audio goes off. If I use the BACK button on Roku remote the AVR recycles and audio is ON for surfing.
UPDATE: I noticed that if the segment is audio only then the ARC audio is good does not drop off. For example FOX News channel selected Live Audio and all is well. same for some stream radio only with no video content. Hope this helps. Please help solve this issue.
