2. Am I doomed/did I get ripped off with SL10YG?
3. Is there a workaround? e.g. I use Nvidia Shield when I use the TV - no other HDMI inputs. Can I plug shield directly into SL10YG to get eARC quality audio without compromising video quality, or is there a tradeoff? I know Dolby Vision 30hz works when I plug it into the sound bar, but not 60hz - which I assume is OK. Are there any other drawbacks?
4. I paid close to $650 USD for the SL10YG + rear pack during black Friday so I think I got a decent deal.

Thanks guys
That is a great deal! Not sure about the eARC update, could happen, I wouldn't count on it though. My TV doesn't support eARC, but I find Atmos over Dolby Digital Plus via ARC pretty damn good for streaming services. As far as I know, eARC is not going to give better quality with streaming services anyway. If I plug a movie with Dolby TrueHD into my TV via USB stick, it will downgrade to DD+ Atmos, but is still a higher bitrate/quality then streaming services would provide, even streaming services over eARC. To be honest, I don't notice much of a difference compared to a BluRay movie with this setup (Dolby TrueHD transmitted over regular ARC as DD+ compared to unadulterated Dolby TueHD). As far as plugging your Shield directly into your soundbar to not sacrifice any audio quality, if you're okay with its Dolby Vision passthrough, I don't think there's any other downside! Should be a perfect workaround for your audio quality concerns.
Thanks so much for your response. When you ask Dolby vision passthrough, would quality of video be any higher if I transmit through ARC, or is it going to be better quality to plug into the Soundbar? Or vice versa? I can do vision 60hz on tv, or vision 30hz on soundbar - that's the only difference. Thanks again

Also, are you saying Atmos on Netflix is the same on both ARC via tv and plugging shield into sound bar? There is no sound quality difference?

No there won't be any difference in netflix as it uses compressed audio.

If you router interferes with the bluetooth connection between the center channel and the sub I would think that no matter where the sub is but if the router is close to the center that would be the problem. I can try moving the router but that's not gonna be easy for me.

Exactly, Netflix does DD+ Atmos at 768kbps max, regular DD+ 5.1 at 640kbps, ARC can handle these no problem.

I believe the wireless sub works over a dedicated 5G frequency, not Bluetooth. I remember reading that in a review somewhere.

Regarding the quality of video, I would say that's up to you if you notice a difference or not, technically it would be higher quality/refresh going through ARC due to the 60hz but you may not notice a difference. You'll have to play around with different options to see what suits you best between video quality and audio quality. Are there any services or files (downloaded files with Dolby TrueHD, DTS Master Audio, etc. or BluRay discs) or are you strictly using streaming services?

That's very odd, I live in an apartment building with tons of interference and have not had a single issue, could something be defective?

To be honest it's really just Netflix.

Unless I'm missing something then really appreciate your help guys, good to know that there is no audio or visual difference when streaming on streaming services, and that for simplicity may as well go with ARC.

That would be awesome! It would probably just be a matter of a software update to be compatible. But, based on all the news announcements, it seems like they're just selling the regular SPK8-S seperate and the upfront Atmos rears are only included with their top model, I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Tonight I am trying an experiment I had 2 routers right behind my TV one for my Arlo security system and one WIFI extender that has 5Mhz and I have unplugged them both. Ive been watching a movie for about 20 minutes and so far no subwoofer cutouts. Ill wait and see how it does after everything is completely warmed up etc and report back.

I don't know if it was on this forum or somewhere else but I remember reading someone who changed some settings on their router under the 5Ghz frequency, to not work on certain blocks of spectrum and it fixed the subwoofer they were having. I wish I could remember where that was.

Yeah, I turned of the 5Ghz radio on my router, and it solved the issue. Any chance you remember what was blocked out to get it to work? Any advice would be appreciated.

Couldn't play the Ultra 4K Gemini Man in HFR 60FPS through this sound bar using my LG UBK90 UHD Player without the colors being off. Works fine when plugged directly into the TV. Didn't want to use the ARC channel for audio. Hopefully they release a firmware for this sound bar to fix this problem. I'm currently on firmware OIMG.191202.006.

Hi, we’ve had the LG soundbar for about 5 weeks. It’s connected by hdmi arc to our LG c9. We stream all content.
The sound is good but it cuts out for a split second sometimes at random places. Anyone else have this issue?

Have ours about 3 weeks and have experienced the same issue twice (that I can remember) so far.

I haven't had this issue, are all software updates complete for soundbar and TV?

Hi, this happens to us just about every time we stream a movie.

I haven't had this issue, are all software updates complete for soundbar and TV?
Hi, this happens with ours just about every time we stream a movie.
Thanks for the suggestion. I don’t know how to check for updates. I’ll search the internet for it, thanks.

I turned off the 5Mghz router that was next to the sound bar and left it off for a week and all was well. Then I moved the router to a spot about 10' away and the subwoofer started cutting off again. So I moved the router into another room and I still have some instances but its less than it was when the router was sitting behind my TV.

Lg sl10y

I have the SL10Y and the OLEDC9 55inc. I have some problems/questions maybe someone can help me.

1 - When connected with optical the TV remote controls soundbar volume and volume level is shown on TV - this works fine
- when connected with HDMI ARC TV remote controls soundbar volume but is slow to respond and TV only shows +/- and not the level. Is this normal?

2 - I dont have Blu ray player yet. Do the ATMOS youtube videos have Atmos sound? Because the soundbar only shows ARC and pressing info shows PCM. Tried different HDMI cables but still the same.

Thanks

It is normal to see +/- on the display when soundbar is connected hdmi arc but you should see volume numbers on the soundbar display. I don't have any delays adjusting sound with my C9 connected to SL10YG via arc. YouTube is stereo only and doesn't support Dolby of any kind that I am aware of.

Thanks, I have managed to play Atmos sound now. Youtube does not support it as you said. But I had to set ATMOS=ON from TV speaker setting first then set output to HDMI Arc (eARC = ON). Without ATMOS=ON on TV the output sound from ARC was just PCM.

I still have the delay when changing volume from TV remote. Pressing the + (or -) several times you can seen the soundbar volume changing slowly. Tried V2.0 HDMI cable but still the same.
My soundbar is SL10Y (not SL10YG). Could this make any difference?

Atmos Sound Quality

I bought and returned a new and refurbished LG SL10YG. Overall I was very happy with them accept the Dolby Atmos playback and one having wifi problems. I found the dialog to be dull and overall sound effects to be underwhelming (either with arc compressed or bitstream from a DVD). When playing other Dolby formats I was quite happy. I was especially happy with music playback.

I tried a few other bars but always wanting to come back to the LG. So here lies my dilemma; do I buy another hoping that I just had two bad ones or should I move on?
I read some review sites stating the same issue. So is Dolby Atmos inherently bad? Hoping current owners can provide some feedback.
Thanks

I haven't tested many soundbars but cant complain about sound quality on SL10Y. Am not impressed with Atmos surround though - was expecting to hear sounds move around better but I guess thats why they sell the surround speakers afterall.
