Still my dream. Only BeoLab 18 must have WiSA wireless. Beer

HDMI 2.1 - eARC Spec'. So when will 4K TVs from LG, Panasonic, Samsung or Sony arrive with
HDMI 2.1 compatibility? Our guess would be early 2019.

Products with eARC, however, are coming out slowly. Onkyo and Pioneer are the first to offer
eARC updates on select AV products, mainly: Onkyo TX-RZ830, Integra DRX-5.2, Pioneer
SC-LX502 and Pioneer VSX-LX503 AV receivers.

If your TV is HDMI eARC enabled, but your AV amp or soundbar is only compatible with HDMI ARC,
it’s likely you’ll get a sound - but the bandwidth restrictions of ARC will mean you won’t be able to
experience the high bitrate audio that eARC can provide. So no, it's not backwards-compatible.

Some AV receivers and soundbars that don’t have HDMI 2.1 chipsets can be upgraded to support
eARC, but it varies between manufacturers and models. It depends if they are using compatible
hardware that can accept the necessary firmware update.

Enhanced Audio Return Channel (also known as eARC) is the next generation of ARC. It’s a feature
being implemented in the upcoming HDMI 2.1 specification.

The main benefit of eARC is a big boost in bandwidth and speed. This allows you to send higher-
quality audio from your TV to a soundbar or AV receiver.

There’s scope for eARC to deliver up to 32 channels of audio, including eight-channel, 24bit/192kHz
uncompressed data streams at speeds of up to 38Mbps.

This means all those high bitrate formats currently available on Blu-ray discs, 4K Blu-rays and some
streaming services – Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio and object-based formats such as
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X – will all be compatible.

Until HDMI 2.1 / eARC is implemented, we can connect 5.1 such.

Surely this is not news to anyone?

A basic home theatre set up really.

HDMI 2.1 - eARC

Q: Will this work with any HDMI cable?
A: This works with HDMI High Speed Cables with Ethernet and the new Ultra High Speed HDMI Cable.

Q: Is eARC available through a firmware upgrade?
A: Generally speaking, no. Check with the manufacturer of your product to confirm.

Q: What audio formats are supported?
A: The latest high-bitrate audio formats are supported including DTS Master, DTS:X, Dolby TrueHD,
     Dolby Atmos and more.

Q: Will the existing ARC-enabled products work with new products that use eARC?
A: Maybe. Manufacturers can produce products that are compatible with both eARC and ARC. However,
    eARC is not defined to be backwards compatible with ARC.

It is not my impression that you will relate to the new HDMI 2.1 / eARC system ?

I know all of this already, literally all of it.

Full HDMI 2.1 will not be available soon, as the chipsets are not really widely available to hardware makers yet.

However some features of HDMI 2.1 are available on what are called HDMI 2.0 a / b  -  eARC is one of them.

Do I care about lossless Dolby Atmos? Not so much that I'd rush out to change my setup.

As it is now, the 5.1 sound mixes on Netflix etc are not the best anyway, so to get the best out of a surround setup (5,1 or Atmos) would require discs.

I was watching Lord of the Rings on Netflix a few days ago - the vocals were so quiet in the mix, I had watch the DVD instead, which was so much better.

All of which means to say - I am sure with a UDH Blu-Ray and 4K HDR screen the experience is better for some types of films. But broadcast and streaming isn't such a big improvement, or very widespread, that I feel in a hurry to change everything around.

I'll wait to see what B&O can offer me in a future setup, otherwise my BV12-65 is more than good enough .

As for the picture you posted - my comment was that it shows the schematic of a basic HT connection, which I'd guess everyone knows anyway.

But I suspect nothing will stop you posting such pictures, however displeasing I may find them.

Seems that there is something we can agree on!

This thread is about: ‘The LG 2019 OLED gets WiSA-based wireless Dolby Atmos Audio

The main thing about that, is that you will need no external device (A/V receiver) for a setup with up to 8 channels —— when you have the optional USB transmitter and you want to go all WiSA.

I am eager to learn how the will present that - soon....on CES 2019 - not hat I need it, but just because I am curious.

And I am curious, whether the LG tv costumers will buy into it?

Or prefer the good old 1: A/V receiver respetively 2: the simple aoundbar option?

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Evidently.

Anyway my point wasn't originally the aesthetics of the pictures, more questioning what new information it actually showed.

The connection of a home theater setup? I'm pretty sure everyone knows that already. What next, a diagram showing a cable box connected to a TV?

But if you found a picture of an Apple TV connected to a receiver and TV useful, then words escape me

Indeed, as the saying goes, there is more that unites us than divides us.

And similarly, I'm interested as always as to how possibilities are evolving with the technology, even though I'm in a good place with what I have.

The broader narrative that worries me is that a single system good for both music and video is getting harder to find. I don't think it was ever that easy actually - I don't trust the big box AV receivers as good enough for music for me, and B&O have been able to tick both boxes well enough thus far.

So I'll wait and see how their offerings will work if a 3rd party screen is required.

But in the end I'm a traditionalist - ultra vivid images and 3d sound aren't critical, I don't watch enough action / superhero stuff, and Blu-ray on my 12-65 is still plenty beautiful to me.

@ SandyB

Consider my pictures as an alternative options, now that the BeoVision TV time is over.

I’m not an AV novice, so they have no value whatsoever.

Even with respect to this thread, I’m not even sure they are relevant.

My initial question asked as much - showing a picture of a lounge with some speakers and a TV doesn’t achieve anything.

The question about WISA based TV’s is how they will interact with WISA based speakers, specifically B&O ones.

That’s a software / internal spec issue , which we’ll have to wait on.

But thanks for showing me what a Home Theatre setup looks like. Who knew.

A majority of LG tv costumers will buy a standard TV. We are we are a minority who pay for surround sound. Embarrassed

Sure - but we still have to find out, if that WiSA Ready/USB-dongle solution from LG can satisfy those of ‘us’, who worship easy manageable ‘surround sound’ (I prefer the term multichannel sound)......and more of what we are used to from the hands of B&O.

If not, we will see, what B&O might offer.....or go looking for alternative solutions (e.g. with a BSysys4), before aiming at a conventional A/V receiver

Personally - like Sanddyb - I am in no hurry right now.
