No sound out via HDMI ARC


paulc

Question

I have an LG 55SJ810V TV and Philips CSS5530B Surround Sound Speakers. The speakers work fine with everything except my LG ARC, including optical and BT from the LG and the ARC from a JVC TV, but I just can't get them to work off the ARC from my LG TV.  

I have played around for hours with the TV settings. The Sound Out is set to External (Optical/HDMI ARC), although it often returns to default internal speakers. I've tried it with SIMPLINK on and off and the mode as Auto and PCM. Nothing sticks. I say sticks because I've had it working for a few seconds a couple of times, then it just goes off. E.g when switching cables from my JVC ARC to my LG ARC it worked for a few seconds.

I've tried the Device Connector a few times, using either the Soundbar or Home Theatre set up. I've tried this after resetting the TV back to factory settings too. Nothing.

LG customer services didn't seem too helpful and said a technician would call but if they do they're not quick!

Any ideas would be much appreciated, otherwise it's going back for another brand because the twin tuner feature doesn't work as expected either (can't record one and watch another).

Thanks oldfogey. Before I give it a go, can I just check the exact procedure that works for you? Is it...

1. Both units are on - what is the Philips input set to?

2. Switch TV sound to "Audio Out (Optical/HDMI ARC)"?

3. Remove power to Philips - not just standby?

4. Switch Philips back on. Doesn't it remember the last input setting?

5. Wait for Philips to automatically detect ARC from TV - doesn't the TV switch back to Internal Speakers?

I have a similar LG TV / Phillips surround combo. It's very annoying but I can restart the Phillips and then the two begin cooperating again. I don' t set the input mode on the Phillips as the HDMI-ARC  connection will set itself after restart.

I've just tried that in various ways but, still no ARC from TV to speakers.

      We have two LG OLED TVs. WebOS appears differently on each. And we are able to download the Paramount+ app on one TV, but not on the other.
      OLED65C7P (older) running software version 6.00.25
      WebOS TV Version 3.9.0-62709
      Does not allow the Paramount+ app to be installed
      OLED65C9PUA (newer) running software version 5.10.25
      WebOS TV Version 4.9.3-5340808
      Allows the Paramount+ app to be installed
      How can we get WebOS to appear the same on both TVs?

      In the last few days my LG TV OLED65B8PTA suddenly drops the volume significantly fleetingly every few minutes. 
       
      Am also hoping this isn't the start of the end of this massive investment I made a couple of years ago !!!

      Hello guys
      I can't play Dolby atmos in TrueHD format when playing from hard drive after I update my firmware and only DD+ is playing.
      I reset my device also but nothing changed.
      any Idea what to do?

      Hello There,

      My tv keeps increasing the volume. It differs by how much some times it jumps from 10 (my standard) to 11, sometimes to 14 and a lot of other random numbers between 10-100, it appears on the screen and the number increase in speed as someone is pushing a remote.

      Some facts from my situation:

      - I know it is not my own remote, as i've tried removing my remote batteries.

      - Theres no one on my network, except me.
      - It tends to happen more and more, the longer the tv has been turned on.
      - If i put my TV on standby, it turns on the next time it increases the volume. (This is not happening if i press the volume button on my magic remote, BUT it does happen when i use the joystick beneath the screen)
      My TV model is LG UF772TV and i currently run on webOS 04.25.85
      i hope someone knows what to do, as it is seriously annoying.

      I dont have warranty anymore.
      If you have any questions, just shoot!

      Best Regards

      Asbjørn Dam

      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.
