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.

      When I open the DSTV Now app on my lg tv I get the error “We’re sorry Something went wrong. Please try again.” 
      I have re installed the app, checked for firmware updates and even reset TV but the error keeps on appearing. 
      Any suggestions on how to fix this? Is it a tv issue or is it the app which is faulty?

      We ran an ARC sound bar with surround sound on a C9 OLED TV - this works fine . I would like to add a bluetooth headphone for my partner to use as her hearing is getting worse but key is to operate both the sound bar and the bluetooth headphones at same time  - Has anyone done this . I can see away to do it with internal speaker option but quaility of speakers is not too good on the C9.
