Getting ARC HDMI to work permanently with Arcam SA30

Question

Getting ARC HDMI to work permanently with Arcam SA30

I am trying to get the HDMI ARC to work from LG OLED55B6V to Arcam SA30.
I can do this by removing all other HDMI cables from the TV and then configuring to work. This is OK for some time, but then going back to it means going through the whole process again.
Does anyone know of a way to set this up permanently?

@Derekc You do not describe exactly what the issue is, BUT the HDMI-CEC (called "Simplink" in the LG TV), can cause odd issues, and you can turn it off for some, or all of the HDMI ports (depending on the model). You would of course lose any "auto-power-on or off" functionality for the TV/AMP pair (as I am suggesting you try the ARC port first).

Another thing that can cause odd HDMI functionality failures, is low spec cables, so try to find which device, when connected one at a time, might be causing the issue when re-connecting, then check the cable has the actual spec printed on the cable jacket (1.4B, 2.0 etc) and should also state if 4K compatible.  I tried to use an old unknown one for one of my devices on my 4K TV a while back, and it caused all sorts of odd flickering and sound drop-out issues on the TV until I changed it.  Try to ensure the cables are all the same spec (ideally all 2.0).

That's what I was trying to do, but couldn't see how to.  Would you be good enough to let me know how.

The issue is that once configured to work, after a while the connection is no longer there and I have to repeat the whole procedure.

@Derekc Try this:: open the general Settings menu, or open the Quick Settings menu and then navigate to the Advanced Settings icon at the bottom of the menu. On some remotes, you might need to press the SETTINGS button for 5 seconds. On some models Simplink can be seen in the "General" section under settings.

If turning off Simplink  does not rectify the issue, try turning off the "QuickStart+" setting, then unplug the TV from power  for 5 minutes, then test your issue again. There have been reports of "odd" issues with the Quick Start active on some models.

Hi .  Thanks for this.

What I was trying to do was to switch off Simplink per input.  That was triggered by your reference in the first reply.

On a completely unrelated issue, every time I switch on the TV I get the WEBOS banner across the bottom of the screen.  Is there any way to disable this?

      I have a NANO91ANA LG TV connected via HDMI to a Yamaha RX-V677 Receiver. Normally when I turn the TV on it also turns the receiver on and I can control volume via the LG remote, whether it is an app on the TV or from another device connected to my receiver (Apple TV or cable box). Now the receiver is not turning on and ARC audio is not working. I think there may have been a software update the other day, but I'm not sure. However, everything was working properly until last night. The last time this happened it seemed to correct itself (it seems to be kind of sporadic), but this time it did not. I do not know what to do to correct this, but it is a major pain as I'm now having to deal with 4 remotes, plus I can't get sound out of my surround speakers when using an app on the TV.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?

      As the title sort of says, whenever I rename the HDMI inputs on my new TV, they seem to reset at random. Sometime's they've reset when the TV is put on standby mode for several hours. Other times, I've noticed they've reset while the TV is still being used. I always end up renaming them in the morning, and eventually, they've reset themselves back to HDMI 1 (Xbox One X) and HDMI 2 (Elgato Capture). 
      Sometimes, only 1 of the names reset. Other times, they both reset.
      Does anyone have any ideas as to why the names keep resetting? TV off or on, it doesn't seem to matter. Any help would be great!
      Please and thank you!

      SEOUL, Nov. 25, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that William Cho, its Chief Strategy Officer, will also take on the responsibility of Chief Executive Officer effective December 1. LG’s top strategist since 2019, Mr. Cho was responsible for establishing LG’s Business Incubation Center and fostering new businesses opportunities in the form of in-house ventures as well as startup partners during his six-year tenure as president of LG North America.
      Having joined Goldstar in 1987 and spending four years in LG’s overseas office in Germany, Mr. Cho has a storied career including roles as president of LG Canada, Australia and the United States. A graduate of Pusan University, Mr. Cho received his master’s degree in business from Yonsei University in Seoul.
      Other notable changes include the appointment of Kim Byoung-hoon as Chief Technology Officer. Currently serving as the head of the Future Technology Center, Dr. Kim is being promoted to executive vice president and will simultaneously assume the roles of Chief Technology Officer as well as the new Information and Communication Technology leadership position.
      Jang Ik-hwan, a 31-year veteran of LG, is being promoted from SVP to EVP and will assume the top position at the Business Solutions Company after successfully growing the IT business portfolio to make LG one of the fastest-growing brands in the notebook, laptop and monitor business.

      Going forward, the new leadership team will accelerate changes focusing even more on customer value in pursuit of growth with each business unit assuming greater responsibility. Toward this end, LG will reorganize its Customer Satisfaction Management Center into the new Customer Value Innovation Office with oversight by the CSO. The role of the CVIO will be to more effectively identify and incorporate customer feedback and pain points into the product planning, development and sales processes. In addition, the Customer Experience Innovation Department under the Home Appliances and Home Entertainment Companies will be upgraded to Customer Experience Innovation Division.
