How do you switch 'Input' to ARC?
Hope someone can help with my problem. I've just bought a LG LHB725 Home Cinema system with Blue Ray player. It supports a number of inputs, including HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 sockets, Bluetooth, Optical, and RCA. There is a sub menu that allows one to switch between these, and a dedicated button on the Remote Control. My problem is that after having using any of these other inputs (or the Blue Ray or DLNA for that matter) there seems to be no way to switch back to ARC so that it uses the TV sound. The only way I can get it to work is to switch off both the TV (Panasonic Smart TV with AnyNet) and the LG Home Cinema, wait a while and then switch on the TV again - which in turn activates Simplex and starts up the LG in ARC mode.
Surely there must be a simpler way??
Thanks for any advice ...
What I did about this.
I added the optical cable and I'm done. I see some folk demanding that ARC work. They are still making that demand!
I can do that...
I can certainly do that... and that's my backup plan. I have another piece of equipment that I want to hook up, which has both an optical and analog output - I was hoping to reserve the optical input on the player for it; that's why I'd prefer to have ARC work.
Not only that, I wrote it.
Turn on ARC settings and enable SIMPLINK in LG LED TV
I had similar issue, non of LG support guys could help except the senior tech. I resolved it myself.
Please turn on ARC on your TV and then turn on SIMPLINK on your TV, it will allow ARC to work through HDMI and bring sound from your LG home theater system. TV and home theater takes 2 - 3 minutes to setup and realise that ARC is on through SIMPLINK. please be patience while they both detect each other. your LED display on home theater system will say ARC and not home or anything else. that means it on now.
All I can say is wow it worked!
Thanks, works like a charm :)
big help, have looking for an answer on this : D
Lg blu ray
Hi, I've tried you step by step to what you are saying and my blu ray keeps saying optical and not arc, do you have any advice on how to get sound working ?
Worked TV sound but...
When I switch to Netflix the sound is not coming thru receiver. using Harmon Kardon with ARC.

Apps may not honor TV settings. Look around in the app to see what audio settings there are there.
Works for LG 60UH7700 to Yamaha Amp
Thanks so much. Was very frustrated today trying to get ARC to work.
Enabling SIMPLINK was the missing link.
Thank You! Thank You!
Re: How to get HDMI ARC to work with LG HDTV + LG Blu-Ray pl
Good thing is that both units support the HDMI ARC function, but the 47LV5400 only supports ARC through HDMI 1 and you would have to connect it to the HDMI OUT of the LHB976 for the ARC to work.
One other thing you may want to consider that comes to mind after reading over your description of you using Netflix and Amazon VOD apps, try using the High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet!
Let me know how things work out, good luck! You can also contact LG's Customer Interactive Center at (800) 243-0000 for assistance should you need it...IFV
This seems to be a European model.
There is no way I can find to turn ARC on even though the label giving the HDMIs etc is labelled HDMI1(ARC)
Is this label common to all better lg models? I think that the label is erroneous for this model.
Whilst 3 sites that sold this model say that it has ARC compatibility, one says no ARC compatibility.
Your advice pse.
