Re: Bose Soundbar 700 HDMI Arc issue
I bought the fullset soundbar 700 with bass and surround few days ago, and my TV is LG OLED C8PTA. Both on latest firmware update. Same thing happened as everyone, at least several times. No sound from TV. I tried everything people suggested but the only thing that works is to unplug the soundbar, wait 10 sec, plug again, then wait for it to reboot. Very frustrating for a $2000 speaker.
I notice it usually happens when the soundbar is in standby mode but the tv is turned back on. OR when the tv is in screen saver (not playing anything but still on), and I switch to bluetooth then back. TV will switch back to internal speaker. No sound when I change back to ARC, despite the soundbar and remote is working. Must replug.
One more thing, bluetooth is crappy too, I use it wih my PC which has bluetooth 5 integrated in mainboard (GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI), and the sound always has delay for about 500ms. So can’t play games with the bar.
