Hey all, I bought a brand new 4k tv, along with receiver capable of 4k. Everything work great through the new receiver. (Xbox one, cable/sat, blue ray). I can switch them over the ARC PORT fine. So I have one HDMI cable going from receiver, to tv. Do I need to run a separate hdmi cable for the TV itself, from the receiver? Obviously I have a smart tv, so if I stream via the tv alone, my surround doesn't work with it. So I need two hdmis going to my tv? One via ARC, to run all my toys, and I have to have another one from receiver to another hdmi port on tv? Sorry if this is confusing.
It's a roku tv and i want to stream over it, I guess I'm asking if I have to run another hdmi cable from TV port on receiver, to a separate hdmi port on the tv since the arc port is already being used on tv for the other devices. I was hoping I only needed one port(arc on tv to arc on receiver) so I dont need to run a separate hdmi cord behind my wall!
