4k 50hz devices displaying WASHED OUT COLOURS
I am trying to setup my new Phonak my hearing aids TV Connector with my new LG GP2 TV and Sonos Arc sound bar, connected by via the HDMI eArc port. The TV automatically uses the the HDMI eArc port, and that port only. As a result no signal goes through the optical out port of the LG TV.
Is there a way to make the LG TV sound signal simultaneously go out to both the sonud bar via eArc port and to the Phak TV Connector via the optical out port so that I can connect hearing aids to the Phonak TV connector and also use the Sonos Arc soundbar at the same time?
Appreciate any guidance.

Hi. I own C9 for ~2 years and I've been using it wired to my network. Lately I've moved to a new place and I'm unable to connect it to my home network using Ethernet cable.
In short: TV doesn't get IP from dhcpd. When I provide IP manually it won't connect also (but is listed on UniFi Cloud Key device list with that IP. Seems like Ethernet interface is not brought up by TV).
DHCPD is run on the router which is a pfSense device. When I connect TV over Wifi - it successfully obtains IP from the very same DHCP server.
I've looked into dhcpd logs on the pfSense and when TV is connected via Ethernet cable, it casts DHCPDDISCOVER, gets DHCPOFFER from the server, but then never casts DHCPREQUEST to get DHCPPACK. So I see DHCPDISCOVER & DHCPOFFER loop in the logs.
I've been suspecting there is another dhcp server in my network that LG TV is sending DHCPREQUEST to, but this is highly unlikely and I've enabled dhcpd guarding on the switch just to be sure.
In terms of hardware, comparing to my previous apartment I have a new switch here (Unifi) and new in-wall cabling (Cat 6a). I doubt switch and cables makes a difference here. TV firmware is the latest. Connection is OK (I've checked it with a network tester). Network port is OK, standard LAN VLAN. I've doublechecked everything and running out of ideas.
Any ideas / tips how to diagnoze and solve this issue?
I'd really like to have it wired instead of wirelessly connected.

I'm having problems with terrestrial TV broadcasts after installing the (Version 06.10.30) software package. The TV broadcasts that were saved are out of order and the search no longer runs as before. Suddenly the search bar jumps from 0% to 100% and no broadcasts are found. Neither radio nor TV. I have tried 3 DVBT2 antennas and two coax cables to see if that is the problem. But all of them behaved the same way on the TV, which is an LG 60SJ850V-ZA. I also tried a full TV reset but that didn't help. I also had the TV turned off for a longer period of time with no electricity, but it made no difference. The release date of the softer package is in December on the site, for me it appeared on the TV (OTA) around late January - early February. Should I expect a new patch in the near future or should I try a downgrade? Any other advice? Thanks in advance for your replies.
I'm currently buying a DVBT2 TV-BOX to watch the channels that are important to me, it's just a bit funny that I need this for such an "expensive" TV (for me). It is not a modern AI piece, but still...

While I have Sonos Beam gen2 connected to my LG 65C12LA via HDMI (eARC) I can’t select any other output device e.g. bluetooth headphones. I can technically select it in TV menu for like 5 seconds, and then output switched back to HDMI (eARC). Is it a bug or feature?
Thanks in advance!
I've seen an older thread on this topic but it doesn't look like anyone found a solution to disabling the screen saver, so I'll try a new one.
On virtually all my LG TV's (I have three OLED's and two LCD), the screen saver interferes with my music app (like Plex, Spotify or Amazon Music). I mainly use Plex for playback of my music which is stored on a central server (NAS) and from the app loaded on a Fire TV stick or cube. After about 20-30 minutes, the album art and other related music information (lyrics, song title, duration, etc) all goes black. If I run Plex (or Spotify) directly on the LG TV via the LG Content store app, the screen saver with fireworks always comes on in about 2 minutes.
I've tried all the different methods to disable the screen saver function including turning off the Timers, Auto Power Off, HDD Storage, etc. I also tried opening the hidden menus by pressing the mute button 5 times but that menu didn't have anything relevant.
Interesting is that the screen saver doesn't come on when using Spotify on a Fire TV stick or if I playback music through a USB device. But i don't use those methods often, mainly Plex to access my music server where I have about 500 CD's stored in ALAC format.
Has anyone found a way to disable the screen saver function? I know the logic for having it (to prevent OLED burn in) but I'm not leaving the same image on for more than the song duration (about 3-5 minutes). It's annoying to check the screen for the a music title or see who is on only to find a black screen looking back. Thanks for any help.
After the latest 05.80.15 software update for my LG OLED55E7T (Australian model)...
Any device I plug in via HDMI 2.0 that is 4K (2160p) 50hz gets washed out colours.
I have a set top box that is 4k 50hz and is getting washed out colours. I have an APPLE TV that when I set it to 4k 50hz it gets washed out colours.
HDMI true deep colour is turned on.
*Interesting note, when I set my set top box to 1080i/1080p mode, the colours are normal and vibrant.
I believe this has something to do with the BT.2020 colour space compatibility. Before the software update everything was working fine.
