    Xbox Series X disables HDMI CEC / ARC connectivity from TV (LG) to Amplifier (Yamaha)


    TV: LG OLED77CX3

    Amplifier: Yamaha RX-A2050



    Xbox Series X is connected directly to TV HDMI input (for HDR and 120hz compatibility) and sound is routed via TV to the amplifier via HDMI ARC. After TV or/and Xbox goes to standby problem starts.

    When trying to turn on the TV - HDMI CEC/ARC functionality stops working (essentially TV doesn't turn on/off Amplifier, there is no control via TV remote and no sound via ARC). To resolve that I need to put the TV and amp to stand-by - pull out Xbox HDMI cable, start TV (which then without problems starts amplifier as well), and plug XBox back to TV. That works OK until I turn the system off for more than a couple of minutes.

    I have two other devices connected directly to the TV (Playstation 5 and Apple TV 4K) and there is no similar issue with HDMI CEC / ARC with those.

    : Xbox One X won't turn on my TV anymore

    Have you checked the TV itself?

    I have an LG TV (different model) and sometimes HDMI-CEC is disabled on my Xbox One X's HDMI input after I change audio output (if I want to use my headphones for a while, for example). Its weird, I've never been able to get to the bottom of why
    it happens but, sure enough, go to my TV's general settings while on the HDMI input and SIMPLINK (LG's name for HDMI-CEC) is off. Turn it back on and I'm good to go.

    No TV Audio from Xbox One Passthrough?

    Can you explain this a bit more? I have a slightly different setup and trying to get it to work.

    I have the following:

    - Comcast Settop box

    - Xbox one

    - Yamaha receiver

    - LG TV

    I have connected:

    Settop to Xbox, through HDMI

    Xbox to Yamaha, through HDMI

    LG TV was already connected to Yamaha, and I have been switching everything thorough Yamaha already.

    Everything works fine except one thing - audio for Live TV. I have audio for games, video, etc, everything that comes from Xbox directly. Live TV video works, but no audio. I have gone through the Live TV setup and Xbox correctly controls the settop box
    (channels up/down).

    Previously the settop box was connected directly to Yamaha, through the same HDMI, and everything worked.

    Any ideas?

    Xbox One X setup with Soundbar

    Just wondering what's the best way to setup my xbox, TV & Soundbar.

    At the minute my xbox one x is connected to LG TV via hdmi and the TV and Yamaha Soundbar via hdmi (arc). Just wondering if it'd be better to connect the xbox to the Soundbar instead of TV (and leave the TV Soundbar connection via Arc as is).

    It doesn't do ATMOS but does do surround and DTS.

    Many thanks

    Jason
    IMO this is already the best scenario possible.

    The first thing you must know is that every device have an inevitable input lag, the game mode in modern TV help to reduce it by turning off some image enhancement.

    If you connect the Xbox One to the Soundbar, you may risk to add input lag because you have another device that must elaborate and pass video to the tv that can elaborate the video too.

    I'm using an Xbox One X directly connected to a Samsung Q9FN 55" and a 7.1 audio system connected to HDMI ARC, my audio/tv don't support Dolby Atmos, but all works fine.

    Sound issue with the Stereo headset adapter

    Yes the controller + adapter is up to date. The problem seems to be connected to how the console handles the hdmi output. It seems when the connection is not present anymore the console disables the output.

    If somebody could test this on their console it could be really helpful. Basically change the input on the TV or Receiver the xbox is connected to and check if the headset still plays the xbox audio.

    Maybe the issue is connected to my HDMI receiver and how it handles hdmi-switching. I also tried to disable HDMI-CEC and ARC but the problem still exists.

    xbox one s and Sony z9f sound bar

    Olov,

    I am not sure what the actual fix is here, however there are some things you can look at to see if it is the cause.

    First make sure that your TV and sound bar are connected via whichever port is labeled as the ARC (Audio Return Channel) input. In addition to this, ensure the HDMI cable supports ARC.

    Second check to see if Apple TV and the Xbox are fighting over control of the inputs. You can disable the HDMI-CEC function on the TV and see if the issue resolves itself. Generally, if I recall correctly, this is a per port setting with the TV on ports
    that use the CEC function. Try turning CEC off on one or both HDMI ports on the TV and see if this fixes your issue. If your sound bar also has HDMI-CEC settings then that may be the culprit.

    HDMI-CEC allows devices connected to your TV through HDMI ports to communicate back and forth with your TV. The devices can have some control
    over the TV, and the TV can have some control over the devices. This means you could control your Blu-ray player through your TV remote, for example. Or devices can automatically change your TV’s input when they need to do something.

    Also if have not done so, I generally advise firmware updates of both the TV and soundbar. Often these updates will include compatibility fixes.
