Guys just wanted to pick your brains, won a Lumagen XE on the auction site and will be picking it up this eve.

I have the current setup:

TH50PF10 Plasma TV
PS4
VU+ SOLO2 satellite Receiver
Arcam AV9 processor/ Arcam P7

I was thinking once I get it to do the reset 'Menu 0999' save.

Then plug via hdmi PS4 & VU+ SOLO2 direct to XE and to the TV via HDMI.

Audio via coax from XE to the AV9 (as HDMI is only a switch and does not carry audio)

Would this work ok?

Thanks to all your help guys. I’ve got the XE up and running. With just the basic setup, no calibration of any kind. The picture is amazing ;), I see what all the fuss was about all these years.

One thing I’m stuck on. I can’t get DD 5.1 to play through the Arcam AV9 via coax from the XE. PS4 & VU both feed into XE via hdmi. Only outputs Dolby pl2 help please.

Can you not send audio out via one of the hdmi to the AVR?

Hi guys managed to sort in the end. Basically the AV9 hdmi inputs are a switch only and do not carry audio.

I followed the manual and did the below and now I get DD5.1.

Does anyone know how you shutdown the XE. If you need to disconnect the power supply etc. Manual only shows going to standby.

Ok just heard back from Jim Peterson. Says just pull the power cable out to shut down.
