2020 CX OLED: What is the point of selecting HDMI input audio format?
on the OLED77CX - there is an option to select HDMI INPUT audio format? What's the point for this?
I understand the concept of selecting output (passthrough vs xyz) - but the TV should recognize/accept whatever audio is input - no matter if it comes over PCM or in a bitstream?
I have the TV connected to an eARC 7.1.4 soundbar system with audio passthrough on. Why do I need to pre-chose what audio INPUT would be?
I am using a switcher to input to TV (then out to soundbar via eARC), so the input audio will change from PCM to bitstream.
TLDR; What does HDMI INPUT audio format do, and why is it there? What if I input PCM but the input is set to bitstream?!
