Just replaced my Marantz SR 7010 with a Cinema 50. They eliminated the larger display behind the front drop down panel (which I question). When I stream via apps on my LG TV I am unable to view the Marantz menu on screen. I am using ARC.

Is there a way to display the Marantz on screen menu while streaming via the TV apps? I do realize I can use the phone app but it would be nice to have it on screen.

Thanks in advance,

Randy

Unfortunately, no, that can't be done. It's not a fault of Marantz. It's just an inherent aspect of ARC that you can not view the receiver's menu on the TV while using ARC. ARC is specifically designed to show sources from within the TV only, not from an external source. It can be done if you use the digital optical output from the TV for audio instead.

Another option is to use a streaming device connected to the receiver instead of the TV's internal apps. There are some Roku devices that are rather affordable, though the much more expensive AppleTV is the best overall.

Thanks John, that’s what I thought. Yup, going to look into another streaming device.

Actually, the AppleTVs aren't as expensive as they used to be. Still more than Roku, but more like twice the price of a top end model, rather than three times the price.
