    Cheers for the advice. Was wondering if you know what arc is for?
    Many thanks

    ARC = Audio Return Channel

    If you are watching freeview, an av input or using internet tv, the audio should pass back to the amp without the need for another cable.

    Keep in mind ARC only works if both the TV and AVR are ARC enabled!
