Getting ARC to work for SmartHUB

Hello everyone, first time poster but been in and out of this website a lot...

but I am having a problem getting ARC to work for some reason, let me start with the components I use.

Samsung UN60ES7500:

Onkyo HTR591:

Now, I went into my receiver and set it up for HDMI Control RIHD with ARC turned on.

So I go into my SmartHUB and try to watch netflix or pandora with the samsung Apps, my receiver kicks over to the TV/CD channel as I read that's what it does for ARC. So since it does this I can see that the signal is being sent from the TV to the receiver but I still don't get ANY sound... i've tried turning the TV volume up that didnt do anything, I don't know what the problem is.

P L E A S E H E L P im annoyed with this lol. TIA.

I forgot to mention I use a Motorola DVR (Verizon FIOS) and that is connected to the CBL/SAT input and works perfect, but when I goto smarthub the receiver kicks over to TV/CD for ARC, but no sound frown.gif

for ARC to work properly you need to run an optical cable from TV to AV receiver.

I thought ARC was so you didn't have to use an optical cable?

ARC is an HDMI function. But you have to pick the right connection. The HDMI ports on your TV should be labeled, 1, 2 and 3, and also have corresponding preferred auto settings also labeled. Your TV, according to the manual, is HDMI 2 for ARC.Check out page 21 for further info.
