Just another data point.   I bought another Shield TV this week for the 
loft TV.    Very different TV model and same receiver brand ( but 
different model ).

I started with a new fresh profile and am having the same audio issues 
with this one too.

I never had issues with either of these TVs or receivers with the old 
minimyth2 frontends.
