I'm just wondering which Samsung HDTV's support ARC? Is it only the 3D one's?

I have a LN46C630 which I believe came out this year and was wondering if it supported HDMI 1.4 so I could use ARC

What is the meaning of life?

I believe the HDMI ports must be certified as ARC compliant for it to work.

The trick is figuring out which TV's possess ARC Compliant HDMI Ports besides 3D TV's and they don't have to identify them as such.

Samsung 65F8000, 60D8000, 40HU6350, Panasonic 50E60 LCD's

No, the LN46C630 does not have audio return channel because it's HDMI 1.3. You need HDMI 1.4 (3D capable with ARC)... See wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

Although its a year since this question was posted, someone else might hit on it. Hence this post.

I recently bought a Samsung UA40D5000 (Series 5 LED) and couldn't get ARC to work to my Onkyo AVR.

However, you can find "Tech Specs" for each model on samsung.com (find the model, click the Tech Specs tab) and they are, at time of writing quite specific about ARC under the heading "Features" - for my model, no HDMI 1.4 ARC.

For the Series 6 40" LED, ARC is supported. I haven't compared a lot of Samsung models but I suspect that ARC is supported from Series 6 on.

I just bought a 6200 series samsung 55"; it does not support HDMI-ARC :(


Thinking about returning it for one with that capability.

No ARC on Samsung UN55H6203

Brand new Samsung UN55H6203 55 inch TV
Brand new Samsung HW-H450 Wireless Audio Soundbar

Who would guess that they don't play nice? The TV's HDMI doesn't support "audio return channel" (ARC). Are you kidding me?? This feature is part of HDMI 1.4 from 2009. Why would Samsung release a TV in 2014 without ARC? Best workaround is to use TOSLINK to connect them.
