HDMI ARC TV to Sound Bar not working


Jose Antonio Campo

Question

Dear Friends ,
Really looking forward to your help and support
My problem is i can not make work the HDMI ARC conection between TV and Sound Bar

So far:


 

TV LG OLED55B7P-S (latest firmware)

Sound Bar LG SK9Y (latest firmware)

NVidia Shield Pro 2017 (latest firmware in my region, waiting for Oreo)

HD Set Top Box Arris/Motorola (Cable) HDMI

Used the device manager on the WebOS to connect the Sound Bar , assigned HDMI ARC , Simplink , and tried both auto power yes and no, sound test did not work

 

NVidia shield connected to SK9Y HDMI IN , HDMI OUT (ARC) to TV LG HDMI 2 (ARC)

Works fine image and sound, sound of course is ok as it goes from NVidia to SK9Y directly

 

HD cable top box to TV LG HDMI 4 and I get no sound from the TV thru the HDMI ARC port (previously establish  HDMI 2 (ARC) to sound bar)  

I plug in the optical and works fine, Internal tv speakers works fine , BT fine….everything works but the HDMI ARC.

 

What I am doing wrong?  I am worry it may be a HDMI ARC port problem, TV Is about 3 months old, soundbar is about 2 weeks old


Thank you in advance

Nice soundbar! My idea is probably too simple. When setting up my LG TV & LG soundbar I couldn't get any sound via ARC either. 

My soundbar has 2 HDMI connections one marked sound in and naturally, I connected the TV ARC port to the soundbar  port port marked Sound In.  I couldn't get any sound unless I used the optical connection. To my surprise, I found that if I used the other HDMI port on the soundbar it worked perfectly! This still seems wrong to me but everything works and sounds good so have not made any inquiries.

Hi Mate

 

Thanks for your reply ,  yes is a great SoundBar I really like it

 

I already tried that , swap ports to see if it made a difference , same result no luck.

In my case the correct way as described by LG as by Industries standards it should be from Soundbar HDMI(ARC) out to TV HDMI (ARC) in.......and is not working

I am almost 100% positive there is an issue with the TV, I tried with a 2nd sound bar and i got the same result

      We have a 65UM7300AUE with software version 05.40.10. We have a Google TV dongle plugged into the HDMI 1 port and that is the input we use most of the time. Until recently every time we would turn the TV on it would default to HDMI 1 and the Google TV home screen would be the first thing we’d see. Life was good. Several weeks ago that changed and now the LG OS (I assume) home screen is the first thing we see. Then we have to use the LG remote to select HDMI 1 each time. We never used to have to do this or use the LG remote at all. Kind of annoying. We think we have HDMI 1 chosen as our default input but it doesn’t seem to matter. Any ideas on how we get things back to the way they used to be with the TV defaulting to HDMI 1 automatically?

      I wish I could control the volume of my LG TV 65NANO96SNA (webOS 4.50.71) using Apple TV 4K 3rd Generation (tvOS 17.3) with HDMI CEC (Belkin AV10176bt2M-BLK cable). The Apple TV has it on Settings, however, the TV does not respond to it. Turn on/off works. Volume control only works with IR. Could we prepare an update to support and fix it?

      i just started using a new LG 43UR7550 (cheapest model from them).......1st time using a LG as well as a Smart TV too.......and so far having a hard time adjusting the picture and sound (never had such problems with previous TVs)😒

      1) sound is worse than i thought since the speakers are down-firing (my previous TV had front-firing speakers)...........it has the AI Sound Tuning - so after it had tuned the sound - do i set the Sound Mode to ''AI'' or should i use ''Custom Settings'' to use the equalizer ??😬

      2) the TV has many different settings like Noise Reduction, TruMotion, etc.......so how to calibrate for best picture since i read that people say it's best to turn them all off ?😬

      3) i can turn off the screen when watching free-to-air broadcast channels.........but can i turn off the screen if i'm using Youtube app on the TV..........?..........what if i use a HDMI cable from my PC to the TV - can i turn off the screen ?🤒
       
      many thanks in advance😃
