OLED C9 - EDID / limitation regarding HDMI-eARC pass-through

Well, they seem to be happy selling broken stuff to the majority of customers, so it looks for now I'm not going to be one of them.

    @JamalofLG - sounds good - thank you for your support!
    With PCM Multi-channel support via eARC and GSYNC you provided a great solution for gamers!

    Am I blind or is Jamals answer gone? :D 

    For those who are too late, this was his reply:
    "Good Morning,

    LG will be introducing PCM Multi-channel support when using eARC in the 2 quarter of 2020. This will be possible via a software update for 2019 & 2020 TV that support eARC."

    Still visible in his profile:

    @fenster3000 - Wouldn't be surprised if they deleted that comment and claimed it never existed at this point haha. Whilst I'm happy that this is getting rectified, to get this feature in Q2 2020 seems a little ridiculous seeing as it could have been included rather easily from the very beginning... Glad it's coming though, don't get me wrong.

    Wow, finally an answer - but up to 6 months wait is ridiculous. They must be waiting on a dependency of some sort. Does anyone know if the specifications foe eARC have been fully ratified ?

    They have been.
    Long time ago.

    In the end the only thing that matters is this:
    LG listened to their customers. While a bit more communication over the last few month would have been appreciated they made the right choice. I am pretty sure that a lot of other big companies are not that "open" to requests from their customers.

    They should not be selling eARC on their latest OLED Tvs if it is still in development. Q2 2020? Seriously LG??? That is 8 months away. Total nonsense scam!

    eARC is already working since Day 1.
    Only Multi-Channel PCM is not supported just yet. 

    DTS HD MSTR and True HD are working just fine.

    @fenster3000 Does that mean, if I use LGs internal media player and stream file from my NAS Storage that includes DTS HD MSTR or TrueHD, it will forward it via eARC to my AV Receiver and play it?

    For example, I was thinking of installing Plex tv app on LG and playing the files with DTS HD MSTR and forwarding the audio to my receiver and outputting it on my loudspeakers.
