HDMI video + A/V in audio


havox

Question

I have connected my PC using a HDMI cable from my PC video cards HDMI out to TV HDMI in.

I would also love to get the sound to TV internal speaker and this has been quite the challenge for me. I connected sound cards RC jacks to TVs A/V in yellow jack at the back, and now I can either choose HDMI and get picture, or AV and get sound, but not both.

Opening Device Connector and choosing connect PC only allows picking HDMI as source.

There is some kind of multi-view program where I can choose HDMI and AV but as soon as I click HDMI full screen button the sound disappears.

Tried HDMI1 and HDMI2(ARC), no difference.

Tried getting latest software update, no changes.

Tried calling local LG service number, they weren't very helpful.

Surely I'm overlooking something simple? There has to be a way to turn the sound from A/V in jack on?

 

TV: OLED55C6V

Software: 03.15.10

webOS TV version: 3.1.2-114 (dreadlocks-denali)

Forget the AV cable. The sound is already transferred via HDMI - you need to change your audio output on your computer to HDMI. Right click on your volume icon the left click the Play Back devices and there you see the option to change to HDMI audio instead of speakers.

I was hoping to use the dedicated sound card with AV cable which should have a better sound quality, but that is better than no sound at all, thanks!

 

Another question, has anyone run into brightness being reduced automatically? Doesn't happen with fast changing images like gaming or watching movies, occurs every time when image doesn't change much like browsing internet forums. Very insidious, because the change is so gradual and slow you don't notice it until 10 minutes later you go - crap, I can't see the text any more! Reverts to normal brightness on a fast screen change, say alt-tabbing to another window with big pictures.

Picture mode standard (User). Eco mode is off. Energy saving off. Eye comfort mode off. Black level low. Motion eye care off. Dynamic contrast/color off and greyed out. Gamma medium. OLED LIGHT 0. Brightness 50. (Weird, both settings seem to do the same thing, adjusts brightness)

I went over every picture setting a few times and for all that seem to fiddle with brightness turned them off but it still happens.

I think the HDMI sound output is digital over the cable to TV so the sound quality will depend on the TV end.

the sound quality will depend on the TV end.

The sound quality on 55C6 is ATROCIOUS. Quite the jarring contrast between the best picture I've ever seen and the worst sound, I'm not audophile but even my mobile phone sounds better than that. Ended up attaching really cheap speakers to the sound card, even that sounds better. LG really cut corners on the "budget" model sound system this year, and I use the word budget here very loosely, what with the 3000EUR price tag and all :)

 

Meanwhile, whenever I'm not gaming/watching movies, every half hour I have to grab the "magic remote" and fiddle with buttons to get my brightness back. 15 years ago I bought a dumb TV very cheap, could just plug it in and it worked. But this thing has a cutesy animated bird cursor, that totally makes the quad core processor inside the TV worth it. Good job LG, I'm so happy to save on electricity after spending that much on a new OLED *grumble grumble* *old man rantings*

 

Update: After several days on the phone with local LG support, I have been told this 'feature' exists for TV protection and cannot be adjusted, looks like I'm out of luck on that one. Next step will be trying to e-mail LG and hope for a software update.

      I wish I could control the volume of my LG TV 65NANO96SNA (webOS 4.50.71) using Apple TV 4K 3rd Generation (tvOS 17.3) with HDMI CEC (Belkin AV10176bt2M-BLK cable). The Apple TV has it on Settings, however, the TV does not respond to it. Turn on/off works. Volume control only works with IR. Could we prepare an update to support and fix it?

      I have been trying to get my Google Home and Nest Audio Speakers to turn my LG OLED65C24LA TV on and off.   I have linked ThinQ to Google Home but it still wouldn't work.  So plan B was to get a Chromecast to do this one simple voice activated request....I have no intentions of using Chromecast for anything else!
      So this actually does work, however, when asking it to turn the TV on, it defaults to the home page of Chromecast TV, I want it to just open to my normal TV system, which is Sky Q.  Ideally, I would like to disconnect the Chromecast and just get Google Home and ThinQ to do this !!
      I have checked every setting and trawled the internet for a solution.  I've posted on the AV Forum in the UK and the Google Forum and I'm waiting on a call back from LG Support UK.
      I expected this to be a VERY simple task !!
      Can anyone help with this ?

      With Immersive Sound, Versatile LG TV Integration and Enhanced Features,
      LG Provides Elevated Audio Experience With Latest Soundbars

      SEOUL, Dec. 19, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) unveils its 2024 soundbar lineup, including the S95TR, SG10TY and S70TY models. Crafted to seamlessly complement LG TVs, these soundbars promise an elevated home cinema experience through their robust sound quality, well-rounded features and sophisticated designs.
      Creating an enhanced synergy between the soundbar and TV, the elevated audio quality of LG’s newest soundbar models enriches the home entertainment experience with a heightened sense of immersion and greater convenience. When paired with WOW Orchestra, the soundbar and LG TV harness the full potential of their audio channels, creating an unrivaled audio experience with an enlarged soundstage and improved depth and height. The ideal choice for a surround sound experience, LG’s new soundbars deliver the superior quality of Dolby Atmos, driven by the advanced technology of DTS:X.
      WOWCAST takes audio excellence a step further, allowing the S95TR and SG10TY models to connect wirelessly to LG TVs, ensuring superior sound without any compromise, even when playing Dolby Atmos audio. All three new soundbar models feature the WOW interface, an intuitive and user-friendly method to effortlessly manage soundbar settings and share sound modes with the TV.
      At the forefront of LG’s new soundbar lineup is the premium S95TR model, delivering an impressive 810W output and captivating surround sound through its 15 channels. The S95TR boasts five up-firing channels, including the industry’s first center up-firing speaker, creating an unparalleled three-dimensional audio experience with enhanced clarity and an expanded soundstage. Moreover, the angle of the center up-firing speaker ensures a seamless audio-visual experience with precise elevation to the TV screen’s level.
      The S95TR features improved tweeters for clear and precise audio, while also incorporating a passive radiator to enrich bass sounds and optimize the overall balance between the soundbar and the subwoofer. Notably, viewing quality is further strengthened in the S95TR model, designed with a matte color palette, materials and finish to effectively reduce reflections.
      The SG10TY, another new LG soundbar, serves as the perfect audio and visual companion to LG’s premium OLED TVs. WOW Orchestra, WOW Interface, and WOWCAST enable the SG10TY model to seamlessly integrate with LG OLED TVs, completing the viewing experience for a greater sense of immersion. Remarkably, connecting WOWCAST to the SG10TY model and an LG premium OLED TV creates a wireless home entertainment experience with no visible cables between the screen and the soundbar. This Wi-Fi enabled soundbar provides a flawless listening experience with a high-fidelity audio quality for listeners to enjoy their favorite tracks on music streaming platforms including Tidal Connect and Spotify Connect. The thoughtful design of the SG10TY flawlessly aligns with the width and frame colors of LG OLED TVs, resulting in an impeccable visual match when paired with an ultra-thin OLED TV.
      LG will also roll out the S70TY soundbar model, ideal for LG QNED TVs with its simple and compact design. This model also features the industry’s first center up-firing speaker, providing sharpened voice clarity. The angled design ensures harmonious audio and visual in alignment with the TV screen’s level.
      A dedicated bracket for the S70TY model* allows users to place the soundbar directly beneath the QNED TV for a refined appearance. This bracket provides a convenient solution for direct attachment, eliminating the need to drill holes in the wall during installation. The bracket allows customizable wall-mounting of the S70TY soundbar at various heights or locations, guaranteeing an aesthetically ideal setup, great convenience and an optimal sound experience.
      LG Triple Level Spatial Sound technology applies channel analysis through a 3D engine to mesmerize listeners with lifelike sound and a compelling sense of space. What’s more, LG AI Room Calibration – a feature praised by both consumers and experts for its audio enhancement – rapidly analyzes the environment of a room and adjusts the settings, enhancing the audio to harmonize with the room’s acoustics. New for 2024, the AI Room Calibration extends its capability to calibrate the audio of rear surround speakers, expanding audio immersion and offering more flexibility for installation.
      In 2024, LG also plans to introduce new editions of speakers and earbuds to the global market. Despite its compact design, the most recent XO2 model offers the authentic, omnidirectional audio of the LG XBOOM 360 speaker. Featuring a distinctive conical-cylindrical design, it radiates sound in all directions, ensuring consistent, high-quality audio enjoyment for everyone in the listening space. Its compact dimensions, along with 20-hour battery life and IP55 rating, increase its portability and versatility. The most recent XBOOM 360 speaker boasts unique 360-degree mood lighting using audio reflectors, presenting a new lighting design that emanates a sense of openness and diffusion.
      LG TONE Free earbuds continue to be ideal for an on-the-go option with user-centric features and a comfortable fit. The latest T90S model offers balanced sound, improved Dolby Head Tracking and refined Adaptive ANC. Additionally, the T90S supports Plug & Wireless, allowing users to enjoy their favorite shows, movies and music on non-Bluetooth devices by using the charging case as a Bluetooth transmitter.
      “LG has always been committed to delivering unmatched audio-visual experiences with superior quality, all to bring a better life to our valued customers,” said Lee Jeong-seok, head of LG Home Entertainment Company’s audio business. “We remain dedicated to providing immersive home entertainment experiences through LG’s premium soundbar products, ensuring our customers enjoy the very best with further enhanced surround sound optimized for LG OLED TVs and LG QNED TVs.”
