eARC madness?


Andrew Peebles

Question

I recently bought and hooked up a Sony HT A9 to my LG C9 OLED.  And that works ... but to my surprise now, when I power on any other connected device (Nintendo Switch, PS5, AppleTV) when my system is off, this powers up the TV, which then powers up the Sony.  Perhaps this is the intended behavior, but sometimes it get wonky ... like I'll power up the Switch, but the AppleTV also comes on, and the Sony might be outputting the AppleTV or the Switch.  I actually want to go back to the old days where my universal remote powers on the TV, the device I want, changes TV input to device.  That is how the system worked before all this Sony HT A9 eARC business.  Did exactly what I asked with no randomness.  Any ideas?

      I had an issue with powering on the tv in which pressing the lg power button on the first ocassion did not turn on my Oled C1 77 inch Tv.
      LG replaced the powerboard, however since the replacement I have an issue with intermittent audio dropouts via earc. 
      EARC has functioned previously on my Tv when connected to an Anthem 710 receiver and for a few months now on an Anthem AVM 70. 
      The set up has remained the same in terms of audio settings, passthough, match screen and sound set to bypass and I have tried multiple cables, switching the tv off, resetting earc, but I still have the issue. 
       
      It is very odd that after a replacement power board I have this issue. It almost seems like a comparability issue between the new board and the existing components or something else is wrong with the TV.
      Any ideas?

      I have an Onkyo TX-NR6050 connected to a LG OLED77C2PUA using a high speed HDMI cable.
       
      When the TV is tuned on the Onkyo comes out of stand-by mode. The volume control on the LG remote is able to raise and lower volume control on the receiver.  The LG has a connection to the Onkyo but the LG is not passing any data.
      If the receiver is out of stand by mode (by either turning the receiver on first or turning the TV on --> off --> on) then there is a data connection and sound can be heard.
      The issue seems to be in the timing of the handshake between the two devices. The LG has no problem turning on the onkyo but whether the data connection is established is based on the receiver being out of stand by mode first.
      I tried everything found on line from changing HDMI connection type form Auto, PCM, and pass through. I have tried disabling the quick start from LG setup.
      It is very annoying considering the amount of money invested into a setup that is suppose to be eARC 2.1.  I should not have to use the home theater remote.
      Any ideas?

      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.
      Thanks, M55

      Hey guys,
      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!
