i am from Austria (yep) and i bought this nice surround receiver "LG-AR702 NS". I bought it used last year. I'm very pleased with the sound and i really like it.
Here comes my problem. LG Austria, Germany .. do not support this product anymore. You can't even anything about it at LG-Online in my country. Its' like it didn't ever exist.
So when i found out that there was no support here in my continent, i started researching and found out, that there are some information about it down under.
So my problem is, that when i connect my PC or PS3 directly via HDMI to the LG, there is this problem, that it recognizes the "multi-channel" input, but messes it up, and center comes from surround right. I got this problem on PC when using windows-sound-configuration. when i click on the center, the test-sound comes from the back. When i watch a downloaded 5.1 video (movie-trailer), the sound goes right. But games, programs and windows do not work well.
Same at PS3. Netflix works fine. Amazon Prime Video not. Netflix even works fine, when i got 1. PS3 to TV via HDMI. 2. TV to LG via Toslink)
I think it depends on the signal that comes into the AVR. I found out, that there was a similar problem with "Denon" receivers. This could be fixed with a firmeware update. But i couldn't find anything for the LG.
Do you have any idea in fixing this?
BTW. as i bought this used, i didn't get a microphone for audissey set-up. and it is IMPOSSIBLE to geht one used-part here in Europe. is there any help for me too?
thank you a lot. nice greetings from the other side of the world
As doggie obliquely suggests, give it a try. Control Panel and Sound. Select your outputs. Just make sure everything is plugged in.
Note sometimes I need to set a desired output as default to get it to start working.
Hmm http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/howto/reception.html ; is the hisense capable of mpeg4 or if older only mpeg2 ? that's 1 bottleneck .
For other channels if your sat setup emulates the above link ? any 2k res is downconverted to 1080i50 [ as we use that pal frame rate ] . 4k transmissions would have no clue sorry
Even uhd bluray is only 24p mostly and I don't have a htpc putting out [email protected] ; btw if you are concerned with motion blur Geoff Morrison enquired about which were 60 or 120hz
