Finally got the HDMI/ARC to behave by switching various settings off and on again until sounds finally came out of the correct speakers. What fixed it? 🤷♀️ But also got the TV/audio shelves tidied up, Apple TV that we don't used unplugged and packed away, and antenna plugged in to the TV. Still needs a dust but I feel accomplished.
So we have been making our way through Cressida Cowell’s How to Train Your Dragon books on audiobook. Two things: these books are deeply funny, cool, and wise. I love them way more than the animated Dreamworks adaptations (and I did mostly enjoy those films). And I didn't realise David Tennant can do ALL the accents, and his voice acting is a gift to humanity that we all should treasure.
So we got the wifi router working with the NBN modem (eventually), but somehow in the installation process the audio output of the TV stopped going through the receiver into the speakers 🤦♀️ Eventually we will get it working again, so we can promptly forget how everything is hooked up and go through the same process all over again when it breaks 4 years from now. At least we finally managed to update the firmware of the Fritz Box.
