Super frustrated right now. Couple of problems.
Just bought LG 970 4K player from BB because of DV (tv is a 65" M Series), YouTube with HDR (I cast everything else), and dual hdmi since I’m not planning on adding more speakers to my 5.1 setup. Receiver is a pioneer elite vsx-42.
1. I can not get audio to stay on more than a second and that’s when I switch from Spanish track to English on 4k discs, it pops on for a second and then nothing. I have tried setting audio to auto and hdmi 2 on the player. Nothing works. I turned off ARC on tv and receiver. This is on discs, usb and apps. I have Hdmi 1 to tv, hdmi 2 to the receiver. When I turn on tv speakers and just have hdmi 1 connected, I get sound from the tv. I also get sound through optical from player to receiver. Hdmi handshake issue? Changed cables and inputs, still no sound.
2. Now with the issues going with hdmi for sound, I think this is directly related. When I turn on Full HD Color on my tv, I get blinking from the set, only time it doesn’t blink is when playing a 4k Disc (no sound obviously). Doesn’t do it with hdmi 1 and tv speakers or with optical from player to receiver.
Unless I totally missed something I might have a bad hdmi 2 port on the player. What are the friggin chances. I am hoping someone can help. I posted in the LG player thread as well, but maybe someone has run into this with their tv
