Apologies for the delayed reply due to the long weekend. I categorized below for readability
@Gery_R thanks for the heads up. Yes it looks like Flex Molds are very new and Oticon literature is not yet up to date on that, and my audiologist remains clueless. I hope to discern on whether these Flex Molds are useful for our level of hearing loss or if our acryllics are the best available.
@Volusiano Thanks for sharing the useful tips on noise reduction. The app setup from my Android to OPN is very straightforward (agree that audiologist intervention is not needed, but it was a nice to have).
My programming stuff (Hi-Pros, etc.) are in the mail so in the meantime I am perusing the Genie and audiology courses online to get up to speed to understand nuances like Speech Rescue. I’m sure there will be more questions afterwards.
On an related note, I also purchased a TV Adapter 3.0 but I am unable to get sound streamed into my ear in surround sound mode. I may have to call Oticon support to troubleshoot. It could be something simple that I’m missing.
I currently have my AV Receiver hooked up to all my devices (it does not have an optical out, only optical in). From that AV Receiver, I have a single HDMI cable going to my Samsung TV that does have an optical out. My devices emit sound either through two ways: (1) when the AV Receiver serves as a HDMI “pass-through” to the TV or (2) through the surround sound system when my AV Receiver is on.
So I hooked up my TV Adapter to that TV’s optical out and was hoping to hear audio in both ways. My TV Adapter pairs with the OPNs very quickly and I am able to select the TV program through the Android app. I hear a series of beeps. In (1) “pass-through mode” I hear audio very clearly in stereo mode. However, in (2) surround sound mode, I am getting silence, which implies that the TV Adapter does not get audio that is being transmitted to the surround sound system when the AV Receiver is on. Any suggestions on how to get the TV Adapter working in surround sound mode with the AV Receiver on?
