OK, so i have just finished testing my setup.
I can confirm the interconnect from the soundbar to the input on the C9 is correct.
Simplink is enabled.
Sound mode is Cinema
Sound out is HDMI ARC
Running latest firmware
Surround mode on SL10YG is set to OFF
I played 5.1 content from 3 sources all connected directly to my C9, then to my SL10YG via Monster hdmi.
1. LG Built in apps - Disney Plus, Dolby.
2. Nvidia Shield - Kodi MKV files, Netflix, Disney plus, Amazon Prime.
3. 4k PVR with 5.1 HDTV Programs (Australian open tennis etc)
Results: I can only get sound from the SPK8 speakers when its in "Movie" or "Bass Boost" modes.
If its in Standard, ASC or Music i get nothing, just a low static hiss (ie distortion)
That is 3 totally separate sources (LGC9 Apps,Shield, and PVR) all fed by separate monster hdmi cables.
Surround mode was disabled via the toggle on the remote or through the app - didn't make a difference.
