I am trying to use the audio return channel (ARC) on my TV and RX-A800. I have the HDMI cable connected but I don’t have any sound. How can I get this to work?

You can enable or disable the audio return channel (ARC) function within the setup menu of in receiver.  Make sure that you have ARC turned on.


Using the Yamaha remote, press ON SCREEN, go to Setup, and select HDMI.  In the HDMI menu select ARC and turn it on.  By default AV4 is setup as your ARC input on TV1 and AV1 on TV2.  You can change this by adjusting the TV Audio Input in the HDMI menu of the receiver.


Please see page 98 in the instruction manual for more information. 


*Ensure that you have the HDMI out on the back of the receiver ran to the HDMI input that is label ARC on the back of the TV.
