So, I've been banging my head against this most of the morning. I'm trying to get my Vizio TV to send audio to my Denon receiver. By accident, I discovered that the reason the Denon and the Vizio couldn't see each other was the DVR. Is this something I can fix, or am I stuck with it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The very important question is how do you have everything plugged in and is your receiver ARC compatible? ARC is usually a direct connection between the TV and the sound bar itself. The standard Optik boxes are not ARC compatible.
Fair question. The receiver, a Denon AVR-X2400H is ARC compatible. I have the PVR plugged into port 1, and Xbox plugged into port 4. That goes out through HDMI 1 to ARC capable port 1 on the TV. All connected with high speed 2.0 HDMI cables with Ethernet.
That's what makes it weird. If the PVR is connected, no bueno. If it's unplugged, it works like it should.
I have a new VIZIO TV and recently got a soundbar and it's connected directly to tv via HDMI ARC. It will be non discoverable by the TV unless I disconnect the HDMI cable to my TELUS IPV5050 is hooked up to. I found this forum through a search and seems like I'm not only one having this problem! It's not my cables are HDMI ports on tv - I tried mixing matching all and finally narrowed the problem to this Telus TV box.
Why does this TELUS IPV5050 box cause connection issues for other CEC devices? What's the resolution I can't use my soundbar because of this box causing it. Are there newer boxes that fix this problem?
