HDMI/ARC completely dead after update to


conrad

Question

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 :-(

I can also confirm this issue with my LG 86SJ957V. I was using Denon AVR-X1400H and my ARC was working without any problem.

After the 04.70.85 firmware update, no sound whatsoever. When I select the ARC/Hdmi in the TV it doesn't even turn on the receiver.

Should I wait for the next firmware or should I buy a media player?

      Model: 42UB700T-TH version 03.02.25. Has not got any software update since  3-4 Years - What a mess...…
      This TV is just a random box now... Once purchased this model - new version from LG was introduced; making this just a playing box...
      None of the recent OTT's can be installed..
      We need a fix or else some solution to it.
      Its really a disheartening experience after being loyal to this brand in any appliance we purchase.

      Hi all,
       
      My LG OLED55E7N just updated to firmware 06.00.25. I must have wronged the god of Google, because I fail to find any whatsnew. Anyone?
      Thx

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

      Hello -
      after no updates for approx. 2 years, the TV updated to 06.00.03 about 4 months ago, now to
      this latest, which is described as a bug fix release.
       
      This release has changed the  TV picture, it is too bright, almost garish, with a decidedly blue color cast -
      Let's be honest, a stable and properly balanced image was never one of the TV's strong points, now it's almost unwatchable.
      Why would anybody update the TV firmware picture settings of a 4 year old TV in such a drastic way?

      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).

      Hey everyone,
      Can someone tell me if I'm going crazy?
      I've had this LG   TV for a while now.  I use it with my  
      link hidden, please login to view surround sound system, connected via HDMI ARC and it's great.

      The LG TV only has 3x HDMI, one of which is used by the surround sound.  The surround sound has 2x HDMI inputs that I can use, and switching to it on the TV, and then switching it's inputs allows me to effectively have 5x HDMI in my system, which is pretty good!

      I'm SURE that at some point when I was setting up the TV and surround sound together, I noticed extra devices in the input menus on the TV - like the TV was "seeing" the devices that the surround sound had on offer.  
      Am I imagining things?  Or is this a possibility?  If so, how the heck do I get it to work again?  
      Thanks!

      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.
