I am having a very annoying issue with HDMI ARC.
I have hooked the Vero 4K+ up to my Onkyo TX-NR646. The Onkyo is hooked up to a LG OLED55C8. I watch Netflix and YouTube with the apps on the TV with audio via ARC to the AVR. Before I had the Vero everything worked fine. But with the Vero connected the audio form TV to AVR frequently stops working. I tried to pin down the exact circumstances when it happens, but I didn’t succeed at that. I read several topics about ARC-issues and already tried some things:
- Disabled CEC on the Vero
- Enabled HPD Lock in Kodi
- Tried different HDMI cables (Premium certified). Bought two new ones for between vero and AVR and between AVR and TV.
- Use the suspend feature (via Logitech Harmony, so the Vero is always suspended when I don’t use it).
- Tried using spdif from TV to AVR, but that is not an option for me, because with spdif Dolby Atmos over DD+ doesn’t work (with ARC, it does).
A temporary fix to the problem is disconnecting the HDMI cable in the Vero. But when I put it back, the sound via ARC is off again.
The only solution is rebooting the Vero. After the reboot, the sound via ARC returns.
The problem occurs one or more times a day, so it is very annoying for me and my family. Can anyone help me with this?
