    Looking for optimal set up for my equipment?

    It was more along the lines of should everything go to TV then to receiver via earc or receiver to TV with individual inputs. I did some fooling around Saturday night and it seems I get the best of everything when I go direct to TV and EARC to receiver. Everything seems to be 5.1 audio...

    I’m going to auto calibrate again and see how I like it

    I’m not sure I understand how to set db?

    Thank you I just wasn’t quite sure exactly what they meant. I was just using the 4.0 as an example. I will auto calibrate again and see how it comes out. I believe last time I did it my subwoofer was —db. I don’t think that would be the case

    I’m not sure I understand how to set db?

    If say a right speaker is set to 4.0db and the left is set to -4.0db what does that really mean and what’s the difference. Is it volume level?

    PS4/PS5 Audio configuration 2.0?

    It appears that is what it is doing. I’m just surprised the PS doesn’t have it at 2.1 though

    PS4/PS5 Audio configuration 2.0?

    When wanting to play Spotify on a PS4 and PS5 it does not offer a 2.1 speaker configuration? However on the PS4 when using 2.0 it sounds best and the sub does work. How is that. On the PS5 I can use 5.1 and it will only drive the 2 fronts and the sub. That’s how I would like to play music...

    My Sony STRDN1060 states it has 4K pass through but when I connect my PS5 through the AVR the PS5 states 4K resolution is not supported?

    Is there a way to configure my Receiver and TV so I can continue to watch the game while playing music from another input? New 4K box no optical audio

    I must have just gotten lucky the first time I set it up. I reached out to Sony support and they say the only way is to use zone 2 or zone 3. Am I losing any sound quality when I run the optical cable from the TV to the receiver instead of HDMI’s to the receiver and ARC to the TV

    Is there a way to configure my Receiver and TV so I can continue to watch the game while playing music from another input? New 4K box no optical audio

    Just based off everything I’ve attempted it appears that as long as I’m running the video source through the TV and not through the receiver and back to the TV and then running the audio through the TV’s optical to the receiver then I can watch the television and still switch to another input to...

    Is there a way to configure my Receiver and TV so I can continue to watch the game while playing music from another input? New 4K box no optical audio

    So now I really have got myself confused but have figured out a way to make it work. As long as I run my HDMI directly from cable box to TV and PS5 HDMI to another port on the TV and run my optical for audio from TV I can have the TV playing and switch to another input on my receiver and play...

    Is there a way to configure my Receiver and TV so I can continue to watch the game while playing music from another input? New 4K box no optical audio

    When swapping everything out I did run through settings on the receiver and change some speaker settings but I also may have moved an input setting in error because I’m not clear on how those works. I’m trying to scroll through all settings and see what I might have switched

    Is there a way to configure my Receiver and TV so I can continue to watch the game while playing music from another input? New 4K box no optical audio

    Correct I’d like the video from the cable box which is connected to my receiver. Arc output then connected to TV ARC. The second music source is a DJ controller I run to the SA/CD input of the receiver with RCA’s. This is the same set up I had before changing the box and TV. I may have...

    Is there a way to configure my Receiver and TV so I can continue to watch the game while playing music from another input? New 4K box no optical audio

    A little background. I just had to upgrade cable box and the new 4K box does not use optical which I had running before and I could switch to my SA/CD input that I was running my DJ controller with RCA’s and the TV picture would stay on. Now I’m not sure if it’s because of the box change or I...

    Distortion (terrible buzz) running amp off receiver

    Funny because the No hum says don’t plug into a preamp?

    Distortion (terrible buzz) running amp off receiver

    So I plugged the cable box into the No hum and it really didn’t work. I then plugged the AMP into the No hum and it completely eliminated it! I have the cable box and PS5 running to the receiver and the ARC from my receiver into the EARC of the TV. How do you feel about ARC? Do you think it...

    Distortion (terrible buzz) running amp off receiver

    Actually if the fiber cable works I could then get another to run for the arc correct? Any downside to that ?

    Distortion (terrible buzz) running amp off receiver

    Nice, I just read up a little on it. I’m pretty sure your right on the ARC because my previous box setup I would have to unplug the cable box HDMI to run the ARC PS5 and Vice versa but that’s better than a new receiver!

    Distortion (terrible buzz) running amp off receiver

    You are the man! I’m a little confused when you say make sure there is no electrical connection between the 2. The HDMI causes that connection?

    Distortion (terrible buzz) running amp off receiver

    Yeah I see some cheap ones but not sure that’s what I’m looking for. The Buzz off got delivered so I’ll be trying that when I get home. I’m assuming that I should plug the cable box into that?
