LG 55UH770V - audio issues

Question

Hi,

 

I am hoping someone can help, as I've not been having any joy elsewhere.

 

I have an LG 55UH770V running the latest firmware/software.

 

I connect to my A/V receiver via HDMI 2 (ARC) and for TV apps (Netflix, Plex) have surround sound.

 

I connect my Xbox One and PS4 to HDMI 1 and 3 respectively. Up until yesterday I would then have surround sound, via ARC, playing from my A/V system for the PS4 and XBox One.

 

Yesterday, I noticed that the sound from the PS4 was only in stereo. On checking, the same is true for Xbox One. The Xbox will not even allow me to now select 5.1 or 7.1 in the audio set up, saying my receiver (i.e. the TV) does not support it. The TV apps, remain fine, playing surround sound

 

I cannot understand why this has suddenly happened or how to solve it.

 

Any help is appreciated.

I had this problem with the same TV It used to work and then was only outputting stereo to my amp. I found out the problem was the sound out output for optical/HDMI arc under digital sound out was set to PCM and needs to be changed to Auto. I hope this works for you.

I did also notice when I have both the internal speaker and digital out on at the same time it sent only stereo to the amp that was with Netflix app not sure about the hdmi inputs at the time only enabled digital out only as the fix for me.

In the words of FE Smith, I am none the wiser, but better informed.

 

The problem appears to be limited to audio output from the consoles which is linear PCM. If I set the Xbox One or PS4 audio settings to bitstream and either Dolby or DTS, and provided that the digital sound out on the LG is set to auto (instead of PCM), then I have surround sound. However, if the audio output on the PS4 is set to linear PCM or on the Xbox One is set to uncompressed 5.1 or 7.1 (which I guess is linear PCM), then this is not detected by the TV, and I simply get stereo, irrespective of whether I have the digital sound out set to auto or PCM.

 

Will be calling LG tomorrow!

Okay - "solved" this issue. The TV (nor TVs in general) does not support linear PCM passthrough other than 2.1. I have therefore configured both the XBox and PS4 to DTS output. Guess I was mistaken when I believed that it had been working previously.

    • Magic Remote support for controlling Definitive Technology Studio W sound bar

      The Magic Remote has universal remote control support for a number of different sound bar brands, but not for Definitive Technology and their W Studio sound bar model.  I would like to see this support added.  It would also be nice if the interface allowed manually setting the remote control codes for various functions, in the case where corresponding devices are not listed.

    • Question: No Sound from HDMI Input

      I have a LG OLED55C7T TV, with the latest software. I replaced my Topfield 2400 PVR (1080P) with a Beyonwiz U4 (2160P) on HDMI 1.  I get picture but could not get any sound to the TV via HDMI.  I tried both SD and HD channels. All show video, but no audio. I checked all volume and mute setting on the TV and on the Beyonwiz. I checked the TV firmware is the latest available release. I tried all of the HDMI inputs and 3 different HDMI cables with no luck. I tried other devices in these TV HDMI inputs and all worked properly (i.e. had sound). I re-flashed the U4 Firmware and went through the setup again. Still no change. I tried setting the TV to factory defaults and setting it up again, but still no sound. I connected an optical cable from the S/PDIF output to my amplifier and sound works. I tried plugging the U4 into another TV via HDMI and it works properly - both video and sound. But the combination of the U4 and the LG TV does not work. So, I'm convinced that its software or a setting on either device that is mismatched. The LG work perfectly with all other HDMI devices that I connected to it (BlueRay Player, Topfield PVR, Nexus Player, Canon 5dMk4 Camera) but I can't get it work with the Beyonwiz U4.  The U4 works fine via HDMI to another TV.  So why won't they work together?  What settings should I try changing?
