I ditched the A8F for the A9G because of the ARC audio output issue (no sound) which started plaguing users back in January. It finally got fixed with a firmware update a few weeks ago, but I was already upgraded by then.
I just set up the A9G and now I'm experiencing audio dropouts on my Yamaha receiver when using the TV's internal apps (Netflix, HBO, etc.). The Hulu app is pretty much unwatchable due to the constant dropouts.
I have no issues if I switch to the TV's internal speakers. My PS4 also outputs audio from various apps without any issues, so I know it's the A9G itself. It's causing my Yamaha receiver to switch from DD+ to Dolby Surround every few seconds.
It must be either an eARC issue or something tied to Android TV. I even tried rebooting the TV, but the issue still remains. If I call Sony, they'll tell me to factory reset the TV, which is nonsense.
I don't want to use optical either. Needless to say, this is super annoying.
