- Onkyo 3008 A/V (all inputs being utilized by DirecTV receivers, BD player, Roku, et. al.)
- Panasonic 65VT50
- Skype HD video camera
- HDMI-OUT (ARC) from Onkyo to Panny's HDMI-IN (ARC)
The A/V's HDMI control (RIHD) is set to auto for ARC capabilities. The Panny's audio is set to "home theater" and not "TV". I got everything connected correctly, but I'm running into a problem. When I try to Skype someone, I can briefly hear sound--of the video call ringing, but as soon as the video call is connected, my Onkyo A/V clicks a few times, then its display changes to "TV speakers on" for some reason. However, there is NO audio coming. The other party can see AND hear me just fine. I can see the other party, but I cannot hear them at all. If I turn my A/V unit off then back on, its display reads "TV speakers off," but then my Skype calls disconnects, and when reconnecting, it goes through the same process--ringing is heard, then it connects and the audio disappears after my Onkyo switches and says "TV speakers on." I've also manually turned my TV speakers ON using the Panny remote to see if that might temporarily help, but that hasn't worked, either.
I confess I'm stumped, because I've looked around in the manual and can find nothing to help. While I obviously would like to utilize my A/V to transmit the audio portion of my Skype call, at this point, I'd take audio through the TV if that's the only way to get this to work. However, I don't think that's necessary, because these Skype cameras are supposed to work with one's A/V system.
