When using an eARC-compatible TV that supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio output

The receiver can receive Dolby Atmos and DTS:X signals sent from a TV or other connected devices. When you connect an eARC-compatible TV to the receiver, in addition to the audio formats already supported by conventional ARC, you can also enjoy object-based audio formats such as Dolby Atmos - Dolby TrueHD and DTS:X as well as Multi Channel Linear PCM, which cannot be transmitted by ARC.

If you use a TV compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X output, perform the following settings on the receiver in order to play back Dolby Atmos and DTS:X-compatible content sent from the TV.

  1. Turn on the eARC function on the TV.

    The eARC output from the TV will be enabled.

  2. Set the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X output of the TV to enable it.

    For details, refer to the operating instructions of the TV.

  3. Select [Setup] – [HDMI Setup] – [Audio Return Channel] – [eARC] on the receiver.

    eARC signals from the TV can now be received.

  4. Select [Setup] – [Input Setup] – [Input Mode] – [Auto] on the receiver.
  5. Press HDMI OUT to select [HDMI OUT A].
  6. Turn off any settings for the operation of other devices on the TV’s remote control.
  7. Switch the input of the receiver to [TV].


  • If your TV has a similar menu for eARC, also check the relevant settings on the TV when you select [eARC] for [Audio Return Channel] on the receiver. For details, refer to the operating instructions of the TV.
