C9 Update - 05.10.04 - Can no longer connect to Dolby


Recommended Posts

Since this update the Apple TV 4K can no longer connect to Dolby via HDMI.  Immediately prior to this update - it worked.

Now, if you attempot to connect and set it to Dolby - the screen flashes the Apple TV screen on and off - it can't stabilze.

This happened immdeiately after the update.  

Can I revert back to the prior software?  Or, can you send me a version that does not have this issue.

I am experiencing the same thing. I was watching a show in Dolby Vision and stepped away for a bit. The tv restarted and the new software installed. Immediately after, I got the same unstable picture. I had to switch Apple TV to 4K HDR to finish watching the same show I had been watching in Dolby Vision a few minutes earlier. Very frustrating!

Hi, I have the exact same problem, also going through a Denon AVR.

The update broke something, always worked fine until then. I hope the issue gets to LG so they can fix it quickly but until now support blames my internet connexion (fiber lol) and refuses to acknowledge the problem...

On the Denon, if you enable "Pass Through" of the ATV while in standby mode - you can select Dolby on the ATV and the C9 accepts.

Guessing LG made a change that affects HDMI communication with the Denon since it was working fine immediately prior to the update.

I have a ticket open with LG - they said their sofware enginners would get back in a couple of days.  If I get a resposne i'll post it here.

Having the exact same issue since i did the update today. Enabling Dolby Vision causes massiv screen flickering. Absolut desaster.

tried different cables, inputs…

LG messed it up. Unfortunalty not the first time (since half a year 4k 120hz aint working with nvidia 3000 generation. They know it. they are „working on it“.) 

i hope there will be a fix soon.

 

setup:

LG C9. 
Denon Receiver.

AppleTV 4K (2021 Version)

I received the 5.10.04 update to my C9 today.  I am in the US.  The update immediately broke Dolby Vision where it flickers and the screen cuts out like it constantly connects and disconnects from the Dolby stream.  It is worse with 60fps content vs 24fps.  I have a 2019 nVidia Shield Pro and Panasonic UB820 running through a Sony STR DN1080 with 48gbps certified HDMI across the board.  I have had no issues with Dolby Vision until this update.  Please fix or at least let us roll back to the previous firmware.

Enabling pass through of the ATV, I still got a black screen after 3 minutes of watching a video. Seems random, could be every 30 secondes or every few minutes.

LG Support is a desaster…

I reported them about the issue. They answered my with a „no reply“ E-Mail Adress and said they need proof. But i could not reply, because the e-mail doesnt allow it *facepalm*

So i contacted them again and put a link to this discussion it.

I refuse to believe that nobody at LG has an Apple TV or nvidia Shield to test this issue….

      I used 6000 hours. All four corners start to have struck pixels, this is very disappointing us after spending INR 1,00,000. I am sure this should have been tested products for such high value. How would I customer will recommend LG Smart TV for family and friends if the product manufacturing is not worth the money spent on?
      regards,

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      Hi people,
       
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?
       
      software version: 3:03:04

      I have a LG OLED C8 TV with a Soundbar and when connected to Optical the Volume Control is normal with a Percentage 0% to 100% but when connecting to HDMI ARC port like the Soundbar suggest to be connected it just show + or -,  you don't have anyway of knowing what the volume is set  to.    I have tried two Soundbars a LG LAS551H that was connected via Optical and when connected to HDMI ARC it also does not show Volume Control.  I have  got a new Sonos Beam Gen 2 that is now connected to HDMI ARC port and sounds great but if I connect it to Optical it's much lower in volume but has the Volume indicator.   Please advice.    
      I would like to suggest three enhancement request: 1. to show Volume Percentage on the HDMI ARC port.  2. Optical and HDMI ARC have the same output and 3. the Sonos be added to the Device list under Soundbars. 
      Thank you, 
      Jim Brown
