Would Auto sound mode still correctly set everything if I were to add two Atmos speakers?

I didn't observe any buttons that corresponded to changing the dynamic volume, guess I will need to look again.

The source I've tested the most is a Panasonic U820 BD player and I've been playing a variety of discs with a variety of soundtracks.

When the LG C9 is configured to send ARC to the Denon then I am getting either DD+ or Atmos depending on which BD track I am selecting.

I have never seen that I am getting any other multi-channel formats but of course would need to test further.

If I switch the LG C9 to "eARC" in the audio settings menu then the audio drops down to 2-channel stereo regardless of what audio track is selected. It will be in "stereo" at that point for all TV connected sources such as my Apple TV 4K or my PS4 Pro.

It's rather frustrating to me that there doesn't appear to be an indicator on the Denon to show if the connection is legacy ARC vs EARC. Perhaps I've missed it but I don't see any way of deducing what it thinks is going on.

The fact that I lose picture/sound at exactly 1 hour makes me somewhat suspicious that there is some problem with an HDMI handshake between the C9 and the BD player. I might have to disable any HDMI control to see if it has any effect on the problem. I haven't seen the problem on other sources but haven't used them much.

I can also try swapping the cable but the consistent 1 hour mark (happened 3 times) leaves me suspicious that some control channel timer is expiring and the LG TV or BD player is puking on the connection.

HDMI CEC sucks which is one reason I wanted a new TV that supported the eARC feature and why I replaced a perfectly serviceable 4 year old Denon with a newer one.

My bad. I misread it as dynamic EQ. Same advice though for dynamic volume. The 4 quick select buttons are for setting several source specific settings like DV,DEQ, speaker levels, overall levels at startup etc... You can rename them as well .

Why use eARC when you have a perfectly fine receiver that is capable of handling all your sources instead of running it stupidly through the tv.

ARC and eARC will continue to have issues.

Thanks for calling me stupid. There are gaming features that don’t work through the AVR such as VRR (was going to be an Xbox One soon).

Additionally I have always battled issues with lip sync and other video processing artifacts when the AVR is in the video chain.

Thanks though for your “input”.

I’m not calling you stupid, I’m saying when your receiver is more than capable, it’s silly to have things connected to the tv, then through the receiver.

I’ve had a bunch of Denon receivers and never had video issues or lip sync issues, I tweak as needed (if needed at all)

Not necessarily which is why I've never used AUTO mode, but rather much prefer selecting the green MOVIE button and then selecting whichever mode I want to use to include which mode to use to simulate 5.1 audio to the additional 2 speakers (Atmos or floor). The mode selected is then remembered the next time that same source audio is received.

Interesting, which would indicate either the eARC capability on the LG C9 is not activated at this point or it cannot detect the AVR is capable of accepting the HD audio. My guess would be the former, otherwise, if the latter, it would simply revert to the same setting as used for ARC.

When you go through the LG connection manager it doesn’t seem to think the Denon is EARC capable but the problem could be on either end.

Unlike regular ARC, eARC requires the use of an HDMI w/Ethernet cable connecting the AVR to the TV.

Yes, I'm aware of this which is why I specifically purchased brand new 18gbps cables from monoprice that include ethernet channel.

In the event that somehow the Monoprice cables aren't cutting it I bought a different brand of cable yesterday that also includes ethernet channel and swapped it out to no effect.

Now what I found today that is quite interesting is that Denon EU just dropped new FW in that market that is not available in the US market.

The release notes for this new X4400H version specifically mention ARC fixes.

I'm still trying to decide on my AVR upgrade. I'm looking at the x6400h or the x4500h.

I have a 5.1.4 setup. The AVR is only needed for the Center, side surrounds and 4 Atmos speakers. I have a separate tube amp that powers the left/right speakers for music listening and doubles for home theater thru the AVR pre outs.

The question at hand is would it be better to have the X6400h with its monolithic amps or the feature upgrades of the X4500h with less power and non-monolithic amps?

Ah, that makes sense, thanks. I need to go back to the MyHarmony software and see if the Movie button is available as a programmable option.

I did a search on here for "eARC, C9" to see if there are any postings but got 0 results. I've also posted on the LG OLED C9 thread and have found a few suggestions but nothing that has worked so far.

Has anyone been able to get eARC working correctly when your 2017 Denon is connected to an LG OLED model C9 (2019) TV? I've have talked to Denon, LG and even an LG C9 forum member spent about an hour with me trying to get my X6400H working with the LG with regards to eARC. ARC works just fine but when I turned eARC to "ON" on the LG then the Denon is reporting only "Stereo" for the audio. If you have been able to get it working, would you post your Denon and LG settings? The only thing I haven't tried up to this point is resetting the Denon back to factory defaults. I have reset the LG to factory defaults but this didn't make any difference.

I guess the search didn't bring results because I don't believe this post talks about "C9". This post is the exact same thing that is happening with my X6400H. There are others in the LG C9 thread that are saying eARC is working just fine on their Denons and that's what is frustrating. Why would it work with some Denon AVRs but not others? Some have suggested a factory reset but I'm not sure that will help. I'm looking for setting changes that may fix it before I resort to the reset.

Are we waiting on the firmware update then?

eARC has been turned on for some time. Are you using the right cable?

I know but I just got an eARC capable TV. I'm also using a cable with Ethernet which is what I believe we need.

You're forgetting the fact that Europeans use the DD-MM-YYYY format. The update you list was released on Feb 6, 2019 not June 2, 2019.

Note also, I list this same firmware update in post 6 of this thread under Feb 6, 2019.

Some have suggested a factory reset but I'm not sure that will help. I'm looking for setting changes that may fix it before I resort to the reset.

Are we waiting on the firmware update then?
From LG? Yes, as it appears to be an LG issue.

Edit

It appears I fixed the problem I was having with the Denon adding a colored Halo around very small HTPC text. However, I had to disable the volume osd mode, now I have no volume level indicator.

Anyone else come across this issue?

I turned the video processing off and set the receiver to game mode. See below for the issue if anyone was curious. I recommend everyone else checking this because it may be hurting your image in subtle ways. It's very hard to notice unless you look at the text on an HTPC in notepad or something and look for color fringing.

-------------

I was having a problem with the Denon avr-x3400h adding a colored halo around my text, and when I removed the receiver and go direct NVIDIA > Projector, the problem disappeared...

See this thread as it contains images of the problem:

X3400H taking control

So my X3400H takes control of my set up for the first 5-10 seconds. It usually switches to its own smart menu (where it displays Denon and its current input, plus 4 quick inputs, and a few other icons), but sometimes to a particular input. If I direct the tv (LG OLED B7A) to the input I want, it will briefly go there and then the receiver will take it back to its smart menu or the input. I've taken off one of the CEC controls, but I don't want to fully uncouple the tv & receiver. What I want is for the receiver to turn on when the TV turns on, but to freaking obey me, not to assert its own will! It should just go to TV Audio or the last input it was on, but not wrestle control back from me.
Can anyone help?

Yeah, I have the same set and an x6400 and it was a pita. I can't remember what exactly I turned off so it wasn't quite as bad. My main input is a tivo which does not have cec (yet). It likes to jump to the Roku because it thinks there's nothing on Tivo. I'm pretty sure it was on the Denon side and not the tv. I don't use ARC much, but I believe it is still working.

This is the Smart Menu function which allows you access to various functions using CEC and your TVs remote. Unfortunately, not all TVs have a good implementation of CEC. As an example, my 2018 Vizo which like all things Vizio, had the barest minimal support of CEC. There was no way to access that menu. My Sony on the other hand which has a good CEC implementation, can access that menu as intended. I dont have an LG, but perusing AVS for many years, LG has a very buggy CEC stack. Its not surprising that you are hitting that menu when you shouldnt be. You can turn that feature off in HDMI settings/Smart Control = off


Smart TV Connectivity
Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality in your Smart TV, you may be able to control your Denon AVR with the Smart TV's remote control. With “HDMI control” set to ON in your receiver, you can set “Smart Menu” to ON to start controlling your Denon AVR with your Smart TV's remote. The Smart Menu home screen provides you quick access to source and surround mode selections, the AVR’s setup menu, and 4 Quick Selects.

Question about my LK970 projector not working through my Denon X4400H. WHen i hook up my cable to HDMI 1 which is the HDCP 2.2 on projector i get no picture but get sound hooked op to the AVR. When i hook up HDMI 2 i get sound and video. When I go straight to the bluray player skipping the AVR from HDMI 1 i get video. So should i try a new receiver? Or is there a setting i can try on the receiver or the projector? I feel like giving up.

that looks like it--thanks. If I turn that off, will the receiver still come on when I turn the TV on? that's what I really want to continue

No it won't. But get a universal remote like a Logitech Harmony remote and it will turn everything on in a sequential order
