Question about Marantz SR-5600 Receiver

2 Answers

I have the following hardware: Marantz SR-4003 Receiver, Samsung LN52A650 HD TV, Samsung BDP-1500 Blu-Ray player, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD cable box, two Paradigm Millenia 20 LCR Bookshelf speakers. I have the cable box and blu-ray player hooked up through HDMI cables into the receiver, and then an HDMI cable out of the speaker into the TV. Now, here's the issue: when I have the TV OFF, I get sound through the speakers for the cable box & blu-ray. However, when I turn the TV on, there is no sound output through the speakers. Suggestions?

I had the same problem. The new Marantz RS-4003 receiver supports HDMI 1.3 for video, but is only 1.1 for audio. When you turn on the TV, a conflict develops between the 1.1 audio and the TV's 1.3.

There are two fixes I am aware of:

1) You can connect the HDMI directly from your Blu-Ray and Cable Box to the TV and send the audio separately to your receiver via Toslink or Digital Coax. However, this defeats the purpose of having a switching receiver, and requires you to change the input on your TV each time you switch between cable and Blu-Ray.

2) The better option is to run both HDMI and Toslink or Digital Coax from your Blu-Ray and Cable Box to the Receiver, and then HDMI to the T.V. This allows switching through the receiver. The downside is that you will not get audio to your TV speakers unless you run a separate set of audio cables from the receiver to the TV.

One other possible problem with the second set-up. I have seen instances when you run an HDMI video signal through the Marantz, and I hit INFO on a Samsung TV, it will tell you that the video signal from the Blu-Ray player is only 1080i and not 1080p. Since the HDMI signal is supposed to be a simple pass-through, I am not sure why this is. If it is somehow downgrading the signal, you may want to consider the first fix, above.

Remove the HDMI cable (out) to the speakers from the receiver.
Connect regular speaker wire from the receiver to the speakers.
Of course, remove the (now extra) HDMI cable from the tv.
That will remove the loop.

If there is an RCA output (red & white), you can get an RCA to 3.5mm mini jack adapter at a store like Radio-Shack in the US or the Source in Canada.
