I thought that it would go away after connected to a wired connection. I never really had problems going wireless but I wanted to get rid of that short distorted sound sometimes its coming from the left H7 or right sometimes both.
Sorry to hear you're still having that issue.
All I can tell you is that when I initially got the SJ9 and H7's to pair with my C7V OLED, I had the main bar connected via ethernet into a R1 MusicFlow hub, and the H7's connected wireless through the LG MESH network, and I had nothing but trouble. Continuous sound dropouts, speaker disconnects, unstable connections. It was terrible considering the amount it all cost (here in the U.K. the SJ9 was reduced at the time but MusicFlow surrounds are rare as rocking horse turd and expensive). It didn't matter whether I was running directly through the HDMI in port on the bar, or via ARC through the display, sound was unstable.
I already had a 5 port gigabit network switch, so I upgraded that to an 8 port one, I also added in a 5 port, full 18Gps, 4K HDR HDMI switch and ran everything into the HDMI IN port on the bar, connected each of the speakers individually via ethernet (note, when doing this I first factory reset each one, and then added each one whilst ensuring the others were disconnected from the power at the time, ensuring there was no way there could be any confusion in connecting them via ethernet or wireless), and I can honestly say I have had never had an issue since. I definitely do not have the issue you are describing, and although I use the Apple TV 4K for my main Netflix viewing (it spools up to it's highest quality a lot quicker than the inbuilt TV app), I do use the TV app on a nightly basis and have never heard the buzz you are describing.
I'm not saying the SJ9 is faultless, there are for sure some niggling gripes I have with it. I was hoping for an update to appear so that individual speakers could be adjusted such as the SK9Y can, considering they basically the same soundbar rebranded. And MOVIE mode when connected to rear surrounds definitely needs fixing as the 2 rears play the same sounds instead of individual left and right rears. Other than that, once I got it setup the way I have described, I have been very happy with it.
I hope you manage to solve your issue,
