Please assist with 5.1 out...

Question

Hi Everyone

 

Not sure if anybody's able to shed any light on this....

 

I recently bought a 55UF860V, which I like a lot.  I have it connected to a Pioneer HTP-072 sound system, which is working nicely, BUT I have discovered that I cannot get 5.1 surround sound out of the TV.  I have tried using both the optical out and the HDMI ARC thing, and both appear only to output stereo.

 

I've had a good old fiddle with the menu settings, no no avail.  5.1 works fine with anything connected directly to the sound system.  Funny thing is, I could have sworn that it used to work- I previously had an HDMI cable in use that didn't want to work with ARC, but since swapping it with another, I have been unable to enjoy Netflix in surround sound.  Really wierd.

 

Any suggestions gratefully accepted!

 

Cheers

Charlie

OK, here's an odd thing.

 

The setting you mentioned above does seem to have been the culprit.  Having changed it to/from "Auto" several times", all of a sudden, the 5.1 seemed to spring into life.

 

Also, I've been trying to get ARC to work, but it looks like too much trouble, tbh.  LG's implementation seems to be at odds with my other connected gadgets, so I'm getting strange goings-on.  Back to optical for me!

 

Thanks again

Charlie

      My version is 4.10.4 which says it's the latest to my uhd tv .. I have a problem that picture is faster than sound and I only have option to increase the amount which make it worse .. anyone knows a way that the siftware gives me an option to make this value like -5 or something to have correct lip sync ?
      I use internal speakers.

      Hi,
      i have a Pioneer 5.1 receiver connected via HDMI-ARC.  Sound by watching live-TV is ok, Dolby Digital output too.
      Watching Netflix or Amazon Dolby Digital output is not working and gets very heavy sound failures. Sound's working only in PCM! That's very poor.....
       
      My settings:
      Audio output via arc "automatic"
      DTV-audio settings "automatic"
      firmware 04.70.45
       
       
      Any solutions??

      I recently purchased a second remote (LG AN-MR650A Magic Remote Control ) so both my wife and I have a remote to control our OLED 55B7A TV.  However, when I paired the second remote then the first remote no longer controls sound.  Both remotes appear to have other functionalities but the sound control only works with one remote.  Any ideas on how to resolve this issue?

      I recently purchased a B6, and came to realize my good old AVR (a Denon 1612), featuring HDMI 1.4, won't do HDR pass-through, so intending to keep the Denon, I switched to having the TV in the middle, instead of the AVR as I did until today.  I have managed to get audio sent from the TV to the AVR via both ARC and optical, multichannel working fine, but the problem came when I tried to have multichannel audio from the PC to the TV.
      The problem is, the PC (using a GeForce 1070) sees the TV as accepting only stereo PCM audio, and only allows to select stereo in the device's speaker setup. Needless to say, I need 5.1 PCM to get multichannel audio in PC games.
      I even tried using an EDID override, copying the audio capabilities from the Denon to the TV, which allowed me to have Windows think it can send the TV any of the stuff the Denon takes, but even then any audio from channels other than left front and right front  is lost along the way to the AVR. My guess is that for whatever reason, the TV is decoding the stream and only letting L and R through.
      On the bright side of things, multichannel pass-through does works fine for DD and DTS streams, allowing to watch a movie on the PC and have semi-decent multichannel on the AVR. Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD, though, are a no go, even using ARC (optical obviously doesn't support HD audio).
      So yeah... Any ideas? Suggestions?
      I'd like to think I won't be forced to buy a new AVR just to have it pass through HDR, so any help will be appreciated.
