When I play Netflix from LG OLED TV, there is no sound on Lifestyle 650 speakers. I could play music from soundTouch app and ensured the speakers are connected and working. I have connected the TV out on Bose console to the ARC(HDMI 2) port on LG OLED TV (65EC970T). Simplelink is turned on and the sound output on TV is set to HDMI (Optical/ARC). I tried connecting optical cable too but no use. I`m out of options, what to do to make it work?
Thanks for your reply. Yes, the console has the source as TV and sound settings have been set to Optical/ARC but still no sound.
Can I connect optical and ARC both at the same time?
Squadie, thanks for your reply, I tried both Default and Alternate but nothing seems to work. In the end I hooked up an optical cable and it`s working now. It`s very disappointing.
The weird thing is that when I connect Bose ARC to TV ARC port and press setup on bose remote, the setup menu doesn`t appear but if I connect to TV non ARC HDMI port then the setup menu appears. Why is it so?
The only reason I can think of would be your LG is set on internal speakers, not HDMI/Optical. I have a new LG 65 OLED C7P and Bose ST300. I have a single HDMI cable from LG HDMI ARC to Bose HDMI ARC. My Oppo DVD and U-Verse are both plugged into LG HDMI in. I also have a device plugged into the Bose ST300 HDMI in (there is only one). Everything works perfectly. The single HDMI ARC connection allows information to travel in both directions between the LG and Bose.
I use the LG smart TV for watching Netflix and other internet streaming apps, etc. That works perfectly also. There is no reason your Bose 650 should not work the same way.
@Xyz987 - which is what puzzles me. I have ensured that the TV sound output is set to HDMI ARC. While a video is playing and if I switch the sound to "TV speakers" I have the sound coming from TV speakers but the moment I switch them back to Optical/ARC, sound is gone. I am wondering what is your DTV Audio setting set to? Auto?
I don't know what DTV Audio is. Is that a setting on the Bose 650? My LG is set to Audio Out (Optical/HDMI ARC). Digital Sound [Auto], Simplink (HDMI-CEC) [On].
