TiVo hdmi arc port

Morning All,
I have been sent a replacement TiVo box and I notice there is an arc hdmi out on the back, I assume it is ok to use this if you have the matching tv and av receiver?
Any known issues I should be aware of using this connection? (5.1system).

thanks.

Re: TiVo hdmi arc port

The TiVo has an HDMI connection for linking to your TV, and an Optical connection for linking to compatible A/V kit.

You can toggle audio settings for stereo/PCM sound via Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Audio. I used both via my TiVo for many years (optical to A/V amp, HDMI to TV) and do the same on my V6 now.

Beyond that, I'm not sure what you're asking.

Correction, there is no hdmi on the box sent, it is only shown on the set up guide they sent me. Thanks Virgin.

Re: TiVo hdmi arc port

Can you post a photo of the box you've been sent? Including the connection ports on the rear.

Re: TiVo hdmi arc port

Thanks for your response, I was hoping hdmi arc was a better connection but as it’s not there on the box sent I am unable to try it anyway.

Re: TiVo hdmi arc port

Apologies for the confusion, I am now thinking the guide picture is the tv end with arc but it does not make it clear so I will connect as normal.

Re: TiVo hdmi arc port

My latest query on this is my old box has something call a forward pass equaliser at the cable input whereas the installation instructions show the cable directly to the box. Any suggestions welcome.

Re: TiVo hdmi arc port

The TiVo doesn't need a HDMI ARC port as the TV will not be sending audio to it. Just plug in as normal and all will be fine.
