When disconnecting BlueTooth audio, is there a way to choose the new sound out to be HDMI ARC?

So I was helped in this forum (Thanks Ryan!) and finally got my Bluetooth headphones working with my LG OLED65E8PUA TV, but now I have run into a slight nuisance of an issue.

I am using a A/V receiver to output my sound, so my Sound Out is HDMI ARC. To connect my BlueTooth headphones, I just tap Settings > Audio > BlueTooth > Headphones. When I turn off my headphones though, it reverts to internal speak audio instead of the HDMI ARC. So I would have to go back into the Seetings > Audio > HDMI ARC. 

Like I said, a slight nuisance, but if there was a way to change the default sound out setting to HDMI Arc, saves some time. :)

    davellan there would not be. The TV will default back to the internal speakers if its connection to the selected sound out device is lost.
