  4. Yep, I had all equipment going direct into receiver, and only required ARC for TV audio from likes of inbuilt apps like Netflix and Stan, but it wouldn't play nice. Basically, the only way it would work was to turn everything off and on again, so could not switch from say Foxtel to Netflix and have ARC kick in. Didn't matter which order things were turned on, it just wouldn't switch into ARC. Very frustrating process I must say (especially scrounging through my box full of old cables to find an optical cable as I hadn't used one in years!)
  5. I found the ARC unreliable on my Sony and had to resort to running optical to receiver as well, but only for streaming from TV. Fiddled around with alot of settings but couldn't get anything to fix the issue. I'd love to know if someone has found a solution.
  6. Hi mods, you can close this.
  7. Ok, thanks for all your help.

  9. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone knows a good contractor/installer for an upgrade/reconfigure of my Hills Home Hub in the Sydney area? Current setup is fairly small Hills hub in garage, with phone module (no longer required since nbn, no home line), audio distribution module running to 4 pairs of speakers throughout house, an 8 port patch module & AV distribution module which is completely outdated (sending 576i through coax) All my equipment (Foxtel, Beyonwiz, bluray player, receiver) is in the lounge room, and previously there was a modulator that fed foxtel and beyonwiz to the hub and around rest of house, but with iq3 box there's no composite outputs and I think it's time to upgrade to hdmi. The receiver then linked to the hub via zone 2 speaker wiring, but something in that chain is broken as I haven't been able to get it running for a while. What I'd like to do is move foxtel box, beyonwiz and 4k apple tv from cinema room into garage, and replace Hills enclosure with a fully enclosed av cabinet. I also have a Nas in my computer room which I'd like to relocate into enclosure. So, in the enclosure I would like the following: Foxtel Beyonwiz 4k Apple tv NAS NBN modem Archer wireless router 24 port network switch AV distribution (Bluestream, or some other hdmi over cat 5??? ) Audio distribution of some sort Might also be interested in integrating some smart lighting but nothing OTT, and some security cameras too. So, can anyone suggest someone in Sydney up to the task? Cheers, Jo.

    Oppo Uhd 4K Player

    Well I've installed the beta fw update, and all the discs that didn't play now do. Was a bit worried about Thor Ragnarok, cos it took quite awhile to spin up, but it eventually started. The other discs were much quicker. Very happy, cos I really didn't want to have to lug it back to the retailer (especially as I'd have to remove the region free mod)

    Would that beta version be U.S specific? Or would it work on Oz model? Would love to be able to play discs on the long weekend 🙏

    Point 6 of interest to me. I do have a Sony TV with DV but Oppo is not connected to it😁

    Still waiting for the next firmware update, getting a bit impatient as I've got half a dozen discs that won't play. Anyone know when it might drop?

    I have heard back from them today. I will wait for next firmware update, and if that doesn't work, I'll take it back to retailer.
