I just got this OLED65b7a TV yesterday. I have everything set up.
My setup is shown in the attachment
I have a couple of problems I can't resolve.
1. Sound comes from two sources simultaneously.
I turn on the xbox which turns on the receiver and the cable box and outputs signal back to receiver to the TV (hdmi ARC).
I turn on the TV and see and hear the TV through the xbox. (or I choose a game or something else on the xbox and see and hear that on the TV)
I choose on the TV to show Live TV from the internet.
Now both sounds come out from both sources. I think the sound system is doing one and the TV speakers are doing the Live TV.
2. I want to control the cable box with the remote.
When I want to configure the remote for the cable box, it wants the cable box to be plugged into the TV. If I do that, the remote can control the cable box, but when I return the hdmi to the receiver, I don't think the remote still worked. I think it said there was nothing connected or something.
3. Should I be changing my connections?
Should I be plugging the cable box and the xbox into the TV? And then go from the TV to the receiver? How will the remote work then? Will I be able to turn the xbox on and off with the TV remote? Will I have to disable the devices that the xbox is turning on and off through the Kinect IR blaster?
Thanks a lot for any direction in this. So far I haven't found anything on the web that is set up like mine to model after.
