    Hi, so I have my Sky Q connected to my AV Amp ( Marantz NR1402) by HDMi and the Marantz into my TV ( Sony OLED) also by HDMi. I can use the sky remote to switch on the Sky and TV - but it also switches on the Marantz.... and normally I only want to listen to the TV sound, not the...

    Connections from AV Amp to TV and Projector

    Hi, I've recently purchased an Anthem 540 AVR to drive my Samsung QLED TV and Optoma P1 Projector and just wanted to make sure I've got it set up correctly as I can't seem to output to the projector without the TV being on. The Amp has two HDMI outs, OUT 1 is currently connected to the TV's One...

    Sky movies not playing in 5.1 surround using a Sony AV amp.

    I finally connected up my old Sony AV Amp to my new LG CX Tv, using an optical cable (the amp is too old for HDMI) and have got it all working nicely with the auto selection and optical sound output for the TV. All the onboard apps work fine (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney +, etc.) as well as my...

    TV takes ages to fire up AV amp.

    I have Sky Q connected to a Denon AVRX540 and then a JVC TV. When I switch the TV on using the sky remote the TV comes on outputting sound and then a minute or two later the amp kicks in and then outputs the sound. All HDMI set to on, sky into the amp and the master cable from amp to TV. In a...

    Repairing a Denon AV amp - advice please

    Hi, My faithful Denon Home Cinema amp has lost its surround channels, though the stereo channels seem to be sound. Would welcome advice on whether its worth repairing given advances in AVRs since it was built c2008, compared with replacing. It was a powerful amp and really drove my Kef 'eggs'...

    Flashing TV image unless AV amp removed

    My Anthem MRX520, Pioneer Kuro TV and Virgin 360 box was working perfectly. I then changed the Kuro for a Panasonic TX-65jz1500B (2021) and connected to its HDMI 1. The result is the TV showing a program image for just two seconds then no image just continually changing text showing different...

    TV speakers plus AV amp speakers?

    I have had a 50" Pioneer Kuro since its launch and since it does not have speakers I have been using a 5.2 AV amplifier with large transmission-line speakers. If I now buy a new TV, e.g. Panasonic 65 jz2000b, can my AV amp and speakers work at the same time as the TV speakers. If yes would...

    AV Amp vs HDMI splitter

    Afternoon guys, Time for change it seems. My 2 channel stereo amp can no longer accommodate our needs, or does it ??... Some years back I did away with the old AV amp and kept things 2 channel, with a decent Rotel integrated. As my son is now enjoying his games, we have a lack of HDMI...

    Radio streams better on AV amp service than web browser stream?

    Listening to radio streams through the amps dedicated Net radio function seems to get a higher quality stream than through the web page direct from the radio station. Maybe they nerf the web stream to save bandwidth but the difference is big. I believe Yamaha use airable.radio as their NET...

    Hi all. I am looking for an AV Receiver that can handle a TV & a projector that have different display positions. The Projector is set up to display on the back wall of a square room, and the TV is above the mantelpiece. There are 4 speakers in each corner. At present, I can either setup...

    Arcam Solo Movie 5.1 AV amplifier hums when powered up, then gradually fades.

    I've had this nice little amp from new (probably 15yrs old now!) and it still sounds good. However, over the last five years or so it has been humming (sounds like 'mains hum') upon power-up, then over the next few minutes it gradually disappears. It started off very slight, now it's quite bad...

    Time to upgrade Onkyo tx-sr605?

    I have the Onkyo tx-sr605 amp with the Jamo 102 HCS5 speaker package (Sub has been replaced with the BK XLS200 MK2). I am about to purchase the Samsung QN95A 4k screen. I know this amp will not passthrough 4k, so will connect all sources to TV, then optical out to AMP for audio. Is it worth...

    Youtube or AV amp?

    Morning All, I noticed last night whilst streaming some music videos (official ones) fromyoutube, that the sound quality was bland, and lacking in base. Playing the same tracks from my own music collection was way better. Is this likely a youtube quality issue?, or has the time come to replace...

    Upgrade to a new 4k and 8k AV Amp "YET"?

    Recently bought a 4k Qled TV and wondering if to upgrade my trusty 2015 Onkyo tx NR 622. The amp works fine, but I found out that even though the HDMI inputs on the back say 4k, it was not showing 4k video via my Virgin Media v6 BOX. I have now plugged the V6 box directly into the tv and...

    Cyrus OneCast AV Input do I need an AV amp too?

    Hi This is a bit of a stupid question I'm sure, however, I've bought a Cyrus OneCast as a "one box solution", however, can I input my sky directly to it (via optical) or my TV (via Optical or HDMI) or do I need to connect an AV amp to it? It would be a shame to have to have 2 x amps to drive 2...

    AV amp with chromecast facility?

    I'm at the early stages of planning an upgrade of my aging, and failing denon AVC-a1 amp. Seeing that the amps now have wifi built in these days, does that mean I can disband my audio and video chromecast devices and cast directly to the amp to play, or is that a facility limited to only some...

    AV Amp upgrade. Denon or NAD?

    I currently have a Denon X2400 and thinking I need to upgrade so I can take advantage of the better audio via earc that the X2400 doesn't support. I now have an LG C9 TV that I stream Netflix/Prime/Disney+ through. I also now have Focal Chora 826-d's and centre speakers that I hope will benefit...

    5.1.4 - do I really need to spend £1k on a AV amp ?

    Hi all, its been a long time since I bought a new AV amp and my first foray into Atmos. Now, I want to go for a 5.1.4 setup which clearly means a 9 channel amp. I have investigated this for a while now and my option appears to be only amps that cost over £1k eg Denon X3700H. Have I got this...
