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?

      Hi everyone,
       
      I just bought a new LG television for a lobby in the company.
      It's a 55" LG Smart TV with WebOS.
       
      This tv is to show the narrowcasting system. But after a few hours the tv gets in to something like a screensaver.
      The narrowcasting is playing with the webbrowser from the installed apps.
       
      Does anyone knows how to get the screensaver off?
       
      Thankyou very much:)

      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?

      I've got my ThinQ and Google Home apps and Google Home speakers set up to turn off my LG C1.  But they won't turn it on, I guess because the TV isn't listening for commands when off.   I expected that enabling these Settings|General|Devices|TV Management|Quick Start+ Settings|General|Devices|External Devices|TV On With Mobile|Turn on via Wi-Fi would do it, but it did not.
      OMG I just discovered that Alexa turns on the TV...and I never even had to open let alone set it up in the Alexa app!

      Recently my LG C1 has been pausing on its own and going back to the profile selection screen while using native apps. This issue occurs while using Netflix, Disney+, Paramount+, etc.  I tried using my Firestick and it kept pausing my program. I tried a hard reset and that fixed the problem for 2 days before it started again with Disney+. 
      I need a fix for this issue ASAP.
