Audion Return Channel
Any advice would be helpful.
I currently have a Pioneer LX55 Amp and both my amp and TV support ARC. I currently have everything connected by Hdmi direct to my amp - Blu-ray, Sky HD, Apple TV etc with one hdmi cable from the TV back to the amp for video. However, if I connected everything to the TV Hdmi's instaed would there be any noticable difference to the sound returned by ARC given the sound would be fed back to the amp through the TV by Hdmi cable.
The only reason I'm asking is the amp always reverts to TV/Sat input when you switch it on which is a bit fustrating. By connecting the above I hope the TV will switch between it various inputs as and when in use and I'd simply leave the amp on TV/Sat.
Not a major problem but I'd like to know before unplugging everything.
