    New HDMI Cable Required?

    Hi Gang I have a few older HDMI Cables (more than 6 years old) .... Keeping the discussion away from 'eARC' - With the new ARC Ports in Yamaha Receivers and TV's is there a need to purchase a newer HDMI Cable to connect from ARC to ARC between reciever and TV? As Always Thank You!

    Buying a reciever with one less optical port .... um?

    Ok then Lord Dalek Thank you .... So then it appears the 385 should be able to handle 4k - yes? And the price is modest (then maybe I can sell my 467)? As for Banana plugs, I would have actually preferred that style of connection but the darn things force the whole unit to 'stick out'...

    Buying a reciever with one less optical port .... um?

    Hello Mr. Lord Dalek I'm a great editor @ 73 years old & disabled - but I don't know what an X81 is? Yes I do have roku Ultra but currently don't have any problems/issues with playback .... Wattage - yes I realize those units are all over-rated. But I'm totally satisfied with what I hear now...

    Buying a reciever with one less optical port .... um?

    Thanks Guys! :dancing-banana-04: BTW - How would you guys rate that RX-V385 compared to the others: HTR-5835 and RX-V467? Aside from naturally being a later model with ARC, hoping I get at least comparable wattage? Thank You - Mike

    Buying a reciever with one less optical port .... um?

    Hi Gang Everyone here are helpful, courteous and professional - that's what makes a discussion forum a great place in which to post questions freely :cheers: (thank you)! I've owned two Yamaha recievers over the years (enjoyed them), from an HTR-5835 to an RX-V467. But I was a bit behind the...

    New Smart TV With ARC - Older Reciever With Only HDMI Out

    "There's no such thing as an ARC port" Thanx but we're getting away from the question-statement. The newer style TV's have HDMI ports clearly labeled 'HDMI ARC' As far as I can tell (again as stated); To take advantage of HDMI ARC, you’ll need a television and audio processor (AV receiver or...

    New Smart TV With ARC - Older Reciever With Only HDMI Out

    Hi John Thanx for your comment ... :) As indicated I'm using an older Yamaha Reciever (2009-2010). The reciever has #3 HDMI ports, #1 HDMI Output Port (along with other typical ports) like optical etc ... So again strickly using my current equipment, (unless of course I buy a new reciever...

    New Smart TV With ARC - Older Reciever With Only HDMI Out

    Hi Gang Would I still need to use 'Optical Audio' out from a Smart TV to an older Yamaha reciever (no ARC), if I ran an HDMI cable from the Smart TV ARC port back to the 'HDMI Out' of the reciever? Although the reciever was produced in 2009-2010, (approx. same year as ARC), there is no ARC...

    Older Yamaha RX-V467 - No ARC - Configurations

    Thanx John Are you suggesting this 'could' be a feature found in a more current 'Smart Style TV' which isn't possible right now with the Non-Smart Sceptre TV I'm using right now?

    Older Yamaha RX-V467 - No ARC - Configurations

    "That's just how it works" Well that's it John - sorry for the confusion (I was the one who was confused) ... And again I ask the question; would it matter if I had a 'Smart TV' - probably not - I'd have the same situation regarding the Blu Ray Disc Player .... yes? I believe there might be...

    Older Yamaha RX-V467 - No ARC - Configurations

    Hi again John (thanks for sticking with me on this). Yes I absolutely agree with you: "stick with a dedicated streaming device like a Roku" And yes you're correct: "The traditional way to connect things is to connect them all to the receiver, then a single hdmi from the receiver to the TV"...

    Older Yamaha RX-V467 - No ARC - Configurations

    "If the CD and Blu-Ray players aren't Yamaha, the remote probably can't control them" Correct again JohnRice! - I finally realized that when I couldn't find any codes in the book ... so I just go thru the AVR remote buttons to pull up the CD Player and DVD Player .... What I also needed to do...
