Re: audio turns off on ARC

Hi RokuBen!

Yamaha RX-V575 with TCL 49S405 for apodtele.
Yamaha RX-V375 with TCL 55C807 for Pops37.

I hope you have a (newer) Yamaha receiver to test? It is strange that the workaround involves poking the Yamaha inputs but the breaking event happens on the Roku TV side.

Thank you for noticing us.

Re: audio turns off on ARC

I experience a similar problem with ARC. It is possible to recover from dropped ARC connection by switching your receiver to another channel and back to AV4. Please try. What is your Roku device?

Re: HDMI ARC handshake issues

7.7.0 build 4135-30. I still experience ARC drops when I switch channels, recoverable by recycling the receiver inputs.

Re: Roku Ultra is a piece of garbage - I am done with Roku

I does look like Roku is understaffed. They experience explosive growth (despite you leaving). All these Roku TV partnerships are great, but they come with responsibilities of supporting more diverse hardware and HDMI connections to vast electronics universe. Dale and Shawn are clearly software guys...

Re: HDMI ARC handshake issues

I got 7.7.0 build 4111-30 a few days ago, which did not change anything. Just in case this is up TCL or Yamaha alley I have filed requests with both of them along these lines: Title: HDMI ARC *almost* working This is my connection: Yamaha RX-V575 === HDMI ARC (AV4) === TCL TV 49S405. Both units have...

I found a couple of similar reports searching for "hdmi arc roku tv" when components are recognized but either almost work or not at all.

Re: HDMI ARC handshake issues

Here is more observations after spending another day with my "working" ARC connection between TCL Roku TV 49S405 and Yamaha RX-V575 receiver. The Roku version is 7.6. The connection gets broken every time a new streaming video or commercial starts, or when I switch between antenna TV and s...

HDMI ARC handshake issues

To begin with, I did manage to connect TCL Roku TV (49S405) with Yamaha RX-V575 AV receiver using HDMI/ARC and get it to work. The issue though is that when I turn my TV on and it wakes up the receiver the handshake fails and I get no sound. I have to manually switch the receiver input to some other...
