Regarding Audio: what comes in / goes out untouched and this is a fact ! Yet that apply to HDMI sound because ARC and eARC does not work the same way.
In the case discussed here, eARC, TV is reading CDS and Diva/Vertex2 and Maestro are the first and sole devices in the world that offer CDS customization... and guess what, C9 mid October finally made it react to CDS change as it should.
so talking about eARC, CDS and solution, we are on world highest summit already here. Wake up !
That sentence is not correct: " If a simple test that could give good results for every PC user with diva is not interesting I dunno what is"
Correct version is: "if correcting LG latest flagship eARC issue that was admitted, recognized by LG and for which LG promised an update and gave a timeframe, so if correcting such issue for any owners of LG C9 that do use eARC and do also have a HTPC in his setup with Diva is not interesting, I dunno what is".
There is a rule in this industry, "first adopters always get screwed" and in your situation, you are very lucky.
Because while I understand the frustration of buying new TV with new tech to then discover that the new tech is not working as it should and will need a postponed fw update to work fine, it is nothing compared to buyers of Samy latest HDMI2.1 TV that does not have and will never have eARC at all while it is sold as HDMI2.1 display that is supposed to have it included ..
Anyway, back to the topic:
It might be not hard to code and implement, however:
1) It will break support for any working eARC TV such as all Sony TV. So such Fw would be exclusive to ... YOU till LG delivers their promise.
2) It is useless since LG admitted the issue and promised update and gave time estimate for it already via official rep on official LG support forum.
3) We cannot do such special "useless" firmware for 1 user, if there is dozens and dozens asking, then sure we will consider it
Given the above, the only way we can do anything is if there is more and more people asking for it.
If you want a custom firmware done for some special use case, please note that we offer custom firmware dev service.
It is then a paid job to reach a specific behavior defined by the customer. Please send email for that.
