No sound out via HDMI ARC

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).

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.

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

      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?

      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?

      Hi,

      I purchased a new 43" LG 4K TV in India couple of months ago. Model Number is 43UJ652t. I use Dish TV DTH service for watching TV. I connected my Dish TV HD Set Top Box  to the TV through HDMI port (HDMI 1)

      I have couple of questions - 
       
      When I select the HDMI input to watch TV, the following information is displayed on the top-left corner of the TV (See pic 1 below). It says 720p there. What does it mean? I have  HD set top box with HD Channel subscription. Why is it saying 720p there even when I am watching HD channels? There is an Icon in the Web OS launcher called Live TV (see  pic 2 below). It doesn't work with DTH set-top boxes? Does it only work with Antenna and Free to Air channels? The TV guide icon (see pic 3) in the Web OS launcher doesn't doesn't play the TV Guide for my Set-Top Box. It asks me to fine tune the programming first  but Auto-tuning doesn't find any channels? Is the TV Guide functionality available only for the Antenna and  FTA channels? Can I add channels from my set-top box to the My Channels menu (see pic 4)? How do I add shows from Amazon Prime to the "My Content" menu for easy access. Currently, it only allows me to add YouTube content Can I add a specific channel from my Dish TV set top box as a long press shortcut in my LG Magic Remote? In the below LG videos, when the presenter selected  the STB while setting up Live TV, the TV automatically searches for the channels and populates the TV Guide? Is it not possible to do it for Indian DTH set top boxes?
         



      These questions are driving me mad. Please help me in understanding the LG Web OS System better
