How to setup Onkyo ARC hdmi output to Smart TV pt2

What is ARC tv hdmi input? Samsung D7000 smart 3dtv to Onkyo amp setting up arc “audio return channel” tv to surround sound, this eliminates the need for connecting tv’s audio out cables like optic cable or composite red/white audio cables going back into audio receiver tv or aux input, basically setting up ARC sends audio out from tv to receiver and when tv turns on the receiver will turn on too in sync with tv (if tv has no arc feature this won’t work)

    These receivers are by far the most tricky, you have to be beyond patient, this tutorial worked for me, however if it doesn't for try resetting your receiver by holding vcr and power at the same time it'll say clear, then try setting up again. I've had maybe 6-7 different kinds this receiver has taken me the most time.

    My Blue Ray, Cable TV and CD player is connected to Onkyo 609, HDMI out is connected to Samsung TV HDMI (ARC) port, When Onkyo setup HDMI (Control (RHID) is set to ON and Audio Return set to Auto, it does not seek and ARC does not work. What could be the problem?

    Connecting a LG TV to a Harmon with arc.
    I got it working however after about a month I think .. it will not turn on the receiver when TV is turned on. Shutting off or turning in individually does nothing. Power cycling TV does nothing. Changed HDMI cables no change.
    Power cycling (unplugging) the receiver seems to fix it.
    Any ideas?

    Tech support for either wasn't much help. Harmon's support is awesome though.
    Unfortunately I don't have enough equipment to change out components and test

    I had setup all following your instructions but I am quite confused what INPUT my Onkyo needs to be in order to receive the audio from my Sony Bravia. Could you explain a bit more.?
    I do have Netflix and Amazon directly on my Sony Bravia TV so I want to send the audio to my Onkyo with out adding the extra Toslink cable.
