    HTB5250DG Vs. Samsung UE32F6400

    Hi,
    Last week, my parents bought a Samsung UE32F6400 TV and a Philips HTB5250DG Home Cinema Set.
    I need some guidance in relation to connectiing the two, so that TV sound is played through the HCS.

    We have connected the two with a brand new Hitach HDMI-cable supporting Accoustic Return.
    On both the Samsung TV and the Philips HCS we have used the connector marked HDMI-ARC for this.
    Not knowing whether such cables are directional, we tried both directions.

    On the Samsung TV, the HDMI-CEC protocol is enabled.
    On the Philips HCS, EasyLink (HDMI-CEC) is enabled.

    On de Samsung TV, I've tried options "audio through TV-speakers", as well as "audio through external speakers". The former gives audio from the TV, the latter gives us silence.
    On the Philips HCS I cannot find any way to manually select the HDMI-ARC channel for audio, but maybe that's supposed to go automatically.

    Are these HDMI-cable hot-pluggable or should I switch off both equipment before (re-)connecting and if so, would that be "unplug" or "stand-by mode"?

    What else am I missing?
    Stephan

    Dear Stephan,

    Thank you for the post.

    Please, have a look into the User Manual at the page 9, where you can find instructions for the connection with HDMI Arc: http://download.p4c.philips.com/file...12_dfu_aen.pdf

    If you cannot hear the audio output of a connected device through your home theater speakers, do the following:
    - Check that you have enabled EasyLink on all the devices, (see 'Set up EasyLink (HDMI-CEC control)' on page 11) and on your TV, set the audio output to "Amplifier" (instead of TV speakers). For details, see the TV user manual, and setup the EasyLink audio control.
    - Press 'Home' button and select [Setup], and then press OK. Select [EasyLink] > [System Audio
    Control] > [On].
    - Select [EasyLink] > [Audio Input Mapping].
    - Follow the onscreen instructions to map the connected device to the audio inputs on your home theater.
    - If you connect your home theater to the TV through an HDMI ARC connection, make sure that the TV
    audio is mapped to the ARC input on your home theater.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Kind regards,
