Hello everyone, just got my new YAMAHA YAS 207, i am using it with AKAI 505 TV and google chromecast
For some unknown reason the soundbar does not output 1080p only 720p...

the connection is as following:
chromecast connected with HDMI to the YAMAHA HDMI IN,
HDMI ARC out from the soundbar to the TV HDMI in.

when i connect the chromecast directly to the TV i get 1080p (but then no sound go thru the soundbar).

please help me out here, i am lost,
tried to update the soundbar firmware.... did not helped...

thanks to all!!

Hi helpstar,
unfortunately my TV does not have optical output, only headset jack, so if i connect the chromecast directly to the TV i cannot have the sound in 5.1, but it does transmit 1080p in this configuration, so i believe the TV firmware should be sufficient to receive 1080p

so just to summarize:
Chromecast connected directly to TV - TV gives 1080p
chromecast connected to the soundbar and soundbar output hdmi connected to the TV - TV gives 720p.
My laptop is connected to the soundbar and soundbar output hdmi connected to the TV - gives 1080p.

any idea?
