LN46C670 - ARC

by barryware / March 22, 2011 2:48 AM PDT

Greetings. I searched but did not find a definitive answer. Does the HDMI in my LN46C670 support ARC (audio return channel)? I have read about the optical out connection on the TV does not support 5.1 output but nothing in regards to ARC.

I could just test but I would need to purchase some additional cables so if someone knows, It could save me some un-needed expence..

My problem:

I got a new HTR amp that supports HDMI connections. Out goes to the TV, cable, BR player, and game console go to the ins..

My problem... all the video gets sent to the tv.. The amp intercepts the audio and processes it. What I failed to realize is that the TV makes it's own audio (internet@tv, netflix, etc).

It is not a problem I can't overcome.. Just won't be as simple and neat unless... the tv has ARC.

Well this is disappointing.. I have spent the last day searching & goggling if this tv supports the audio return channel. It seems that it is part of the HDMI 1.4 specification.

However, I can find no information about this TV. It does appear that SOME of the "C" (2010) series samsung HDTV may but I can find nothing on my tv (LN46C670M1FXZA).

The manual is very disappointing to say the least as well as the samsumg website. Under specifications, it tells me how much the tv weighs and the measurements..

Is there anyone who can tell me where I can find some of the technical specifications I need?

Found my answer:

The C670 does not support Audio Return Channel since it only offers HDMI 1.3. Only the Samsung 3D TVs will support HDMI 1.4 and the Audio Return Channel out of the HDMI2 port. -MrSamsung

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
