I tried to connect my new Philips Home Cinema HTS9241/12 to my 42PFL7406H/12 TV. I have used the HDMI ARC connector of my TV and both the TV as Home Cinema have the latest software versions. When connecting I double checked the HDMI settings of both the TV and HTS Home cinema.
However when I want to use the HTS Home Cinema the TV says it can't find the external amplifier and keeps using the TV speakers. When I force the HTS Home Cinema to find a HDMI device is says he can't find one althoug the TV is connected and powered. Strangly enough when I play a DVD in my Home Cinema the image is working OK but the sounds is comming from the TV Speakers.
