HDMI ARC - Audio Out Not Working (Again)

Recommended Posts

I'm not getting any audio from the apps via the HDMI via ARC connection to my receiver.  This occurred two weeks ago and was unable to resolve it, but ironically there was new firmware released that same day for my B6 (3/31/17) and this fixed the issue.  However, now I again can't get it working after a TV reset and tinkering with the audio settings again.  I tried to load the firmware again, but it appears this is not possible to forceable load the same firmware.

I've experienced this a few times with my UF770V set. 

First time, had the mainboard replaced under a support call.

Second time, it was after I'd been messing with settings - found that ARC wouldn't work with HDMI Deep Colour enabled on HDMI1. Disabled it and ARC started working again.

Third time, seemed to coincide with the update to 04.25.56 firmware. After a *lot* of messing about with resetting to defaults, leaving unplugged, changing ARC/HDMI control settings on the TV and sound bar, I discovered that the following fixed it for me.

  1. Turn HDMI control off at the TV and soundbar
  2. Turn TV and sound bar off and unplug from power
  3. Disconnect all HDMI leads apart from the one between the TV and soundbar
  4. Plug TV and sound bar in, and turn on
  5. Enable HDMI control on the sound bar
  6. Enable ARC and HDMI control on the TV. Sound output to the soundbar show now work
  7. Turn the TV off - soundbar should turn off with it
  8. Turn the TV back on - soundbar should turn on automatically
  9. Plug the rest of the HDMI leads back in and test again

Also, I found that I had been setting the TV to PCM output, which basically meant stereo output even when the source was 5.1. Leave as Auto rather than PCM.

Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for the suggestions. Your third solution worked for me after trying all the more obvious ‘solutions’ provided by other users. My set up is an OLED C7 and SK9Y soundbar.

A little disappointed with LG that the set up procedure is so buggy especially between two LG products but delighted the issue is now resolved

      I have been thinking would it be possible to make a HDMI switch that connects to the TV (maybe via USB to control it), the TV knows it's a switch and add virtual HDMI's and by selecting one of the virtual HDMI's is tell the switch to select the correct port.

      Hi,
      How about a setting to set the default Audio Volume for each input?  Or, at least remember it for each input when you change inputs.

      After my LGOLED55C7 updated to 04.70.85 I have l;ost all sound through ARC.
      I have an Arcam AVR550 receiver which works for everything else and used to work perfectly (even with the latest Arcam update that provided Dolby Digital +).
      Unfortunately after the TV updated to 04.70.85 I have lost all sound over ARC. The reciever switches to RC as normal when, for example, Netflix is started, It shows Dolby Digital + is being transmitted, but there is NO SOUND.
      Any clues?
      I have factory reset both the TV and the receiver :-(

      Great picture but how to fix lip sync problem, only on ABC network channels, coming from Spectrum Hawaii?  Same cable box into my older Panasonic Plasma, using same HDMI cable: do NOT see lip sync problem.  What am I missing, or what is different coming in on the cable that bothers the LG set but does not   bother the Panasonic TV?
