I have a problem connecting my Philips 8605 TV via HDMI with ARC to my Onkyo TX-NR609 A/V Receiver.

Whenever I turn my TV on, the receiver also gets turned on, or if one of them is turned off the other is also turned off. Because this is unwanted behaviour I my case I've turned Easy link off thinking it has something to do with the HDMI CEC signal. Whenever you turn off Easylink however HDMI ARC is also no longer available.

I have been experimenting with the several setups in the Eeasylink menu (turning Easylink remote off while leaving Easylink and HDMI ARC on, but this doesn't solve my problem). Any thoughts on how to solve this ?

I have tried turning Easylink off completely and connected a cable from the digital out of the TV to the A/V, but this gives a lot of lipsync issues which are not ideal as well.

Hello,

this is strange: Easylink "off" should avoid such behavior.

Hi

ARC can only work if the Receiver receives HDMI controls. THis is CEC, so if this is disabled, it simply does not work.
Using SPDIF as an alternate connection is a good Idea, however you need to configure Lipsync on your Onkyo.

Thanks Thomas,

Ok, so ARC is dependent on Easylink, but what makes that both devices shut down each other (or start up each other), because that is the part I would like to turn off. Have tried to set easylink control to off, but that didn't seem to work.

The HDMI ARC is the desired way to connect both devices.


I have used SPDIF as 'second best' option. Lipsync seems to work only on HDMI. The onkyo has a A/V sync setting which can set A/V delay. This works, but as soon as I turn my onkyo off, it loosed this setting again... I will inform Onkyo on this
