If you want to use a single remote for the whole HDMI chain of devices you do not need to disable SimpLink or HDMI Control, of course.
needed to use a universal remote, he did not want to use CEC at all.

I have updated the list, so it is more clear.
Updated list for known AVRs vs LG C9 eARC
AVRs known to work with LG C9 eARC
- Denon AVR-X3500H
- Denon AVR-X4500H (*2)
- Denon AVR-X6500H
- Pioneer VSX-LX503 (*1)
- Yamaha RX-V685 (*1)
- Denon AVR-S750H (*3)
- Denon AVR-X1600H (*4)
AVRs known to not work with LG C9 eARC
- Denon AVR-X3400H
- Denon AVR-X4400H (*5)
- Denon AVR-X6400H (*6);
- Marantz SR7012 (*7)
(general) - all the 2018 or 2019 Denon/Marantz eARC models are expected to work just fine;
(general) - all the 2017 Denon/Marantz eARC models are expected to NOT work, this is NOT the LG's fault, but Denon/Marantz fault (Denon/Marantz support should be contacted ASAP to let them know and resolve this problem);
*1) requires HDMI Control/CEC=ON on the receiver for eARC to work;
*2) if you do not need SimpLink/HDMI Control (you use an universal remote) eARC works (ignoring the TV Audio setup) with CEC=OFF and ARC=OFF on Denon and eARC=ON on C9 (also works about the same with the 2018 Sony A9F/AF9 OLED eARC TV, with CEC=OFF on both and ARC=OFF on Denon), this setup should work with all the 2018/2019 Denon/Marantz eARC models;
*3) requires SimpLink=ON on the C9 and HDMI Control=ON on the S750H for eARC to work (but with the TV Audio setup?);
*4) also works with 2019 Sony X950G eARC TV;
*5) on TV Audio is capable of only Stereo with the 2018 Sony A9F/AF9 OLED eARC TVs internal apps, HD audio does pass-through!);
*6) on TV Audio is capable of only Stereo with the C9
*7) also no HD audio with the 2018 Sony A9F/AF9 OLED eARC TVs internal apps/Plex
Samples for testing the ARC/eARC link:
- lots of HD audio samples are available to download in the Kodi wiki - bitstreaming or uncompressed LPCM files are included;
