    Connecting Wireless Headphones to Old TV? (Help)

    Connecting Wireless Headphones to Old TV? (Help)

    Ok, my elderly father can only use over the ear headphones that he considers really comfortable, he tried my Jabra Elite 85h headphones and loved them. He wants to use them only to listen to his TV and to do so wirelessly. So we bought him a pair as a gift only to realize after the fact that his...

    Center Speaker Suggestions

    Nothing is defective just thought that replacing the "most important" speaker first would be a good plan? But if keeping "like with like" is the conventional wisdom I guess I should rethink this plan (which I am certainly open to being corrected here). I did use the Audyssey system to calibrate...

    Center Speaker Suggestions

    Looking to upgrade my center speaker. Not ready for a complete speaker replacement but my understanding is a center speaker upgrade really improves dialog. I use my setup primarily for watching movies. Was looking at Klipsch RP-440C Center Channel Speaker? Thoughts? Suggestions? Should speakers...

    TCL 65R617 55" 4K Smart LED TV (horizontal lines issue)

    I have no problem ignoring them because once I'm watching something they never appear. But what I fear is long term damage? Do you think I could safely ignore them?

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    (1) Have not updated manually, unless it automatically does so on first setup, just got it within a month or so thought I wouldn't need to. Will try that. (2) How do I turn off network features? Thanks, Joe

    Denon AVR-S730H & 4K Video

    Is it true that a Denon AVR-S730H cannot play 4K video? If it cannot why does the manufacturer describe it as "AVR-S730H 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD Network AV Receiver with HEOS"? I'm seeing reviewers saying it cannot "pass through" 4K? What does "pass through" mean in this context? I'm also...

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    Ok, I thought everything was running like a champ. And most of my setup is working perfectly for my needs. However, I am starting to have problems with the Blu-ray player freezing, this is happening on about 3/4 of the Blu-ray discs but not all of them and never happens with DVDs. All Roku...

    Price Check: 2008 Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH A/V Receiver

    Yeah, I want to just give it to him but he's demanding that he pay me something. He is just using it for music/audio setup and it does sound nice. I'll suggest a good meal, see how that goes. Thanks, Joe

    Price Check: 2008 Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH A/V Receiver

    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I want to sell my older (manufactured in 2008) Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH A/V Receiver to a friend. It has been well kept and everything works fine. What would be a fair price? Thanks, Joe

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    New setup is fantastic. I have everything going through the receiver, including my 4k Roku. I did some fine tuning with EQ and sound modes and everything sounds great. Thank you everyone for your advice and support. I applaud you all. This forum is a fantastic resource. Cheers, Demonyx

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    Thanks! Ok, solved Q2 & Q3. But still need to fine tune the sound. Changed some input/output settings and have everything going from the Denon through HDMI 3 (ARC) to the TV. All visuals look great. Still needs work on the audio. Q1: what are your crossover settings/bass management with your...

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    Ok, got the new gear and am trying to set things up today. Limited success and could use some help here. I have the Denon receiver as the hub. I have one HDMI cable from the Denon going to the TV and all devices going into the Denon not the TV. Video looks fantastic from the Sony, through the...

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    Thanks but I already have a place for it I just need to raise it up higher so my center speaker can be in front of the TV. The supplied stands are too low and the center speaker obscures the screen. Does this look like a good idea? VIVO Universal LCD Flat Screen TV Table Top Stand / Base...

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    When the receiver was working I had everything going thought it. I do know enough to know that that is the correct way. The only connections to/from the TV to the receiver was a HDMI and a Audio Optical cable. I had my Blu-ray player and PC connected directly to the receiver. But I did use both...

    TCL 55R617 Receiver Recommendations?

    Yes, it has Roku built in. But can you override the built in Roku OS? Also, can an Optical Audio send 7.1 surround sound? PS - What is the deal with this ARC stuff? Before this TV I was under the impression that one HDMI cable could send video and audio just fine. Why did they need to separate...

    (1) I have a TCL 65R617 55" 4K Smart LED TV (2018) and an 10+ year old Pioneer 7.1 Elite Receiver and speakers. The receiver is completely dead.
