That is good news. Did you happen to notice the PCM icon on your display that I mentioned? I just want to be absolutely sure. What model Denon do you have BTW?
Sorry, I should have been more clear. I've always had the Xbox connected directly to the AVR so I can't really test for the changes using Dr HDMI 4K until I connect it to the C9 instead. I may try it at another time but for now I've tested files on the USB as well as the internal Smart TV apps. Denon is X6400H

Thanks in advance for addressing my paranoia. [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/IMG]


Now comes the the terrifying part where I lay it flat in the packaging and put the stand on and lift it up with my wife's help. We did fine for the 65" C8, but this is heavier and bigger so still nerve wracking. Advanced techniques for paranoid wimps also appreciated. [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
Let us know if it leans back on the stand once you put it together.

If they laid it down while not transporting it you are fine, you do the same thing while attaching the stand.

Find the directions for doing the stand and do it the way they suggest. I made the mistake of trying to do it my own way taking it completely out of the box, that was a mistake.

OK this eARC issue needs a sticky or something! I just got the C9 and have Xbox One X. Also still need to upgrade to an eARC capable receiver. Basically, I want to use VRR and feed Dolby Atmos, or Bitsream, or LCPM audio correctly back to the receiver with eARC. (once I buy one, I have a 4K AVR now but no eARC update available)


1) What actually DOESN'T work right now for this setup? (X1X to TV, TV eARC back to AVR)


2) Do I need the Dr HDMI to fix it, or is there a specific flavor of eARC receiver that works correctly? If not I can just buy this and everything works great it looks like? Do you have to program it with switches once you get it or does it just fix things out of the box? https://www.amazon.com/HDFury-18Gbps.../dp/B07MCMTZWD


3) What about all my other devices like Apple TV 4K, PS4, etc. that don't need to be hooked up directly to the TV since they have no 2.1 features? Can I just connect a different TV HDMI input port to the AVR and use that as the hub for the less advanced devices without the eARC connection screwing things up? Or does using eARC for one device mean I have to use it for ALL devices (I sure as heck hope not because I have an 8 HDMI port receiver for a reason!) I guess if this is a real problem I can just disconnect eARC when using the other devices.


Thanks!!

Thanks, no they didn't lay it flat, they put it on its short side. I guess since the screen ain't cracked it doesn't matter. And geez, assembled in Mexico... so it didn't travel intact from Korea.

There is still the nvidia cards to be announced, so slim chance they will have hdmi2.1 support.

People need to speak up to CLub3d to make a hdmi2.1 to displayport1.4 adapter, show your support by posting over on their forums.

Anyone here using the Panasonic UB820 or 9000 disk players? They are supposed to do an excellent job of tone mapping HDR using their built in optimizer vs turning on dynamic tone mapping in the C9.

Would that still be true if you used calman to set the dtm manually?

Yes they do a great job, However with talking to a few different calibrators, calibration would effect everything you watch where only what you watch thru the player is only effected. Calibration is cheaper then the 9000 and effects everything.......

So it's likely in 2021, all AVR will be HDMI 2.1 compliant, which means at worse you'll have to wait 18 months to buy a HDMI 2.1 enabled AVR as a workaround to the broken eARC.

That out of the way, I still say you should get the C9 because image is good enough relative to the A9G, and HDMI 2.1 is great to have 4 years from now. My A9G is dedicated to critical movie watching in a dark room and I have the Sammy Q90R dedicated for gaming in a more brightly lit room. However, if I was to be limited to one TV dual duty? 77" C9 all the way (even with these eARC issues because we are the 1% first adopters, and that's always the risk).
Thanks for the input. Appreciate it. Nice to know you have both the A9G and the Q90R. I agree 100% on being a first adopter and running into some hiccups. I'm sure the eARC and 2.1 issues will get fixed. Hopefully, as some have already stated on here, it can be fixed via software updates and it's not hardware related.

It prevents your TV from clipping HDR content over 1,000 nits by tone mapping everything to under 1,000 nits before sending it to your TV.

According to the iPhone app AVR Remote, I output through my AVR, Atmos/TrueHD from Blu-Ray discs that carry it, Atmos from the C9 apps/programs that carry it, and Dolby D+ Dolby Surround from cable channels.
Perhaps you misunderstood what was the problem all along and what Dr HDMI 4K was supposed to add to the C9 eARC situation: Dr HDMI 4K is a good solution to let a source (PC/Xbox/otherS) that sends 6/8 channels LPCM uncompressed audio to the TV and then, trough eARC to an eARC compatible AVR.
I think that it is the second or third time that I have explained this...
Dr HDMI 4K has little to do with your situation since C9 eARC works just fine with everything you said to use - Atmos/TrueHD from Blu-Ray discs that carry it, Atmos from the C9 apps/programs that carry it, and Dolby D+ Dolby Surround from cable channels.

If 6/8 channels LPCM uncompressed audio from Xbox do pass-through the C9 eARC without any EDID manipulation then why others are restricted to 2.0 channels LPCM - as RTINGS discovered and tested?

AudioEDID is a subset of the EDID (look below for an actual EDID), and Dr HDMI 4K does modify the AudioEDID, just look in the setting of their "Dr HDMI EDID Utility" app (they even have special audio banks that you can download...).

An actual EDID from a Denon AVR - the first section is the Video EDID, the second is the Audio EDID

There is no such thing as "Regular HDMI EDID only" without the audio part - unless the device actually does not sends/receive audio.

I've used the "Spears & Munsil 10 bit Gradient Test Patterns" video which seems to pretty much break LG's 2019 de-judder implementation. The pattern causes massive artifacts on the borders of the pattern areas.

I'm pretty sure I haven't had this problem on my B6. Has anyone else noticed this problem?
I brought this up several pages back. Also was testing with Spears and Munsil and content. Any amount of TruMotion past 0/0 causes artifacts.

And I believe the 6 series de-BLUR (the bottom setting) did not cause artifacts (I leave mine at 0/10 on my E6, with no artifacts) - but I believe on my E6 any amount of de-judder also caused artifacts. Any amount of de-blur or de-judder causes artifacts on my C9. But I believe the de-blur feature is working differently on these sets.

1) Uncompressed 5.1 or 7.1 LCPM audio (Atmos over eARC works (For most of us, myself included with a Denon 6500H), but I have found audio latency on the Xbox using Atmos (but not on PC), but some have not had that issue). There's a forum on LG's website petitioning for them to add the ability to passthrough uncompressed 5.1 and 7.1.

2) Unclear - see current conversations on this page and last several

3) Just use your AVR for stuff you don't care about HDMI 2.1 features (ALLM, VRR etc).

Yeah he doesn't provide very much information does he? I checked for it last night and it was showing up, I'm in the Mid-West USA.

The new version is 03.60.04 and it appears to have first been reported up in a German audio video forum back on 6/6. There are no release notes so far for this version so I imagine it is minor bug fixes.

I have not retested EARC with this version as I don't expect it would be fixed in a release this quickly and LG have not responded to my forum thread reporting my problems with Denon X4400H... if they had fixed it I would think they would update the thread and tell me to load this new version.

If 6/8 channels LPCM uncompressed audio from Xbox do pass-through the C9 eARC without any EDID manipulation then why others are restricted to 2.0 channels LPCM - as RTINGS discovered and tested?
He tested Xbox -> Denon and not Xbox -> LG -> Denon.

An actual EDID from a Denon AVR - the first section is the Video EDID, the second is the Audio EDID

There is no such thing as "Regular HDMI EDID only" without the audio part - unless the device actually does not sends/receive audio.
OK, my fault for not being clear.


Code:
Type: Regular HDMI
Discovery: Video and Audio EDID 
 Pins: SCL (15), SDA (16)
 Direction: AVR -> Device, TV -> Device or TV -> AVR
Data: TMDS
 Pins: TMDS Data0 (7, 9), TMDS Data1 (4, 6), TMDS Data2 (1, 3), TMDS Clock/Data3 (10, 12)
 Direction: Device -> AVR, Device -> TV or AVR -> TV
 
Type: ARC
Discovery: CDC
 Pins: CEC (13)
 Direction: TV -> AVR
Data: ARC
 Pins: Utility/HEAC+ (14)
 Direction: AVR -> TV
 
Type: eARC
Discovery: Audio EDID
 Pins: Utility/HEAC+ (14), HEAC- (19)
 Direction: TV -> AVR
Data: eARC
 Pins: Utility/HEAC+ (14), HEAC- (19)
  Direction: AVR -> TV
When I said "Regular HDMI EDID only" I was referring to the video and audio EDID for normal HDMI data (the first one on my list above) and not ARC or eARC. The Dr HDMI 4K only changes this one on the DDC channel pins SCL (15), SDA (16).

The Dr HDMI 4K does not touch the CDC audio discovery on the CEC channel nor does it touch the Audio EDID discovery on the eARC channel.

So if the Dr HDMI 4K is having an effect on eARC there are two possibilities:
  1. Either LG or Denon has incorrectly tied in eARC discovery to regular HDMI discovery and we're getting some handshake failure.
  2. Denon is taking what it sees in the regular HDMI (Audio) EDID from the LG and is dropping entries from its Audio EDID on the eARC channel to the TV.

When you get a chance to test LPCM 5.1/7.1 using Xbox -> Dr HDMI 4K -> LG -> Denon and Xbox -> LG -> Denon and see if you do or not get multi chanel PCM displaying on the Denon for each one.

Thanks.


Edit: Put the Dr HDMI 4K in the correct spot.

There's a forum on LG's website petitioning for them to add the ability to passthrough uncompressed 5.1 and 7.1.
When you do Xbox -> LG -> Denon, does the Xbox allow you to pick 5.1 or 7.1 uncompressed? What does the Denon display on its front panel? Is the PCM icon there? Do you get audio?


Thanks.

It does not have to!
AudioEDID manipulation only makes sense before the signal gets to the TV inputs, not between TV and AVR!
So Dr. HDMI 4K is meant to be inserted between the source and the TV:

HTPC ----- Dr. HDMI 4K ----- TV Input - Pass-through ON - TV eARC ----- AVR eARC

The C9 only reports itself as a 2.0 channel LPCM input device - this does not prevent the use of lossy/lossless compressed audio (via bitstreaming), but multi-channel uncompressed audio (LPCM) is not permitted.

Nope, LG has just not added the 8 channels LPCM to the AudioEDID of its HDMI ports.

The failure to discover the AVR (and repeat the AVR capabilities to the TV - as some of our fellow members have noticed) is another thing, and it might be a particular handshaking issue, since some AVRs are affected, and some do not.
I am not clear what is the influence that "eARC Pass-through ON/OFF" setting on the C9 has about the way the TV views the AVR sources (discovery process).

This morning I connected the Xbox directly to HDMI 3 of the C9 so it's now using the "TV Audio" of the Denon. The first thing I got was the message about VRR and I activated that. The Xbox did not allow me to use LPCM 7.1 (I didn't try 5.1 but I'm assuming it would be the same). I got a message on the Xbox that said something like "not supported". The only way I was able to get Atmos back from the Xbox was by changing the audio to "Bitstream". It makes sense because the C9 doesn't support multi channel speakers. The Xbox did let me use 2 channel LPCM.

Yeah he doesn't provide very much information does he? I checked for it last night and it was showing up, I'm in the Mid-West USA.

The new version is 03.60.04 and it appears to have first been reported up in a German audio video forum back on 6/6. There are no release notes so far for this version so I imagine it is minor bug fixes.

I have not retested EARC with this version as I don't expect it would be fixed in a release this quickly and LG have not responded to my forum thread reporting my problems with Denon X4400H... if they had fixed it I would think they would update the thread and tell me to load this new version.
Ok thanks. I’ll check later but it’s not on website.

That's the thing I got wrong. Now things make sense. Unfortunately that means you need one Dr HDMI per device hooked up to the TV and you'll need a (not existing yet) 48Gbps version when the new consoles and HDMI 2.1 PC video cards come out.

I'm curious now what the EDID of the LG looks like. Can someone with a Dr HDMI 4K or other device dump the LG's EDID and post it in the new LG eARC thread?

Where is this LG forum petition to fix this eARC LPCM madness so I can sign it?

And does anyone know if Marantz eARC is just as problematic?

I provided links to the requisite LG forum threads where these issues are discussed in the new thread around C9 eARC.

All;

I have created a new thread for discussing ARC/EARC issues with C9. I'd kindly ask that we break all of this discussion out to this thread since this is the owner's thread and it has been somewhat overrun with discussion of these issues.
