Question ARC / CEC using Android box and Arcam Solo Receiver


Novice Member
Hi guys,

So I just bought the B6, and to my disappointment I found out that my Arcam Solo 5.1 does not support 4K 60Hz.

So I'm doomed to having to connect my 4K devices (PS4 Pro and Android TV box) directly to the TV.
Now I'm hoping to do this as efficiently as possible. Meaning being able to use my TV remote for the Android box, and for the sound on the receiver.

I have set up HDMI-1 as the ARC device, and set up CEC on all the devices.

See below my set-up:

The following works:
1. Arcam goes to "ARC" mode
2. I can control the volume on the Arcam through the TV remote
3. I can navigate the Android 4K player using the TV remote

But no sound from the Android player to the Arcam.

Likely, when I use the optical cable, I can get the sound to work (haven't tried yet), but my goal is to use the HDMI CEC functionality to get the volume control on the TV remote to work.

Please advice!
