Idk exactly how eARC would work, does tv have to support the formats or as long as the bandwidth is there it will just pass thru
eARC support on TVs only requires them to pass the audio codec through to the AVR or soundbar. It does not require decoding support on the part of the display, nor conversion to PCM. If implemented correctly, everything is possible...including Dolby ATMOS and DTS-X.
