Believe this may be a generic issue? My LG 55LW5600 TV is having issues with ARC and my Denon AVR-591.
My cable and Blu-Ray player are connected via HDMI to my Denon and speaker system. TV is connected to Denon via ARC. I am using ARC HDMI out on Denon connected to HDMI1 on the LG (ARC in). Cable and BD work fine, sound comes through Denon, all good.
Issue is when I want to watch content right from the TV itself using native apps like Netflix, YouTube, etc. No sound through the Denon. Only TV speakers, which are crap. I'd like the sound to come through my home stereo as well, hence the ARC setup.
Everything is set up correctly, cables, HMDI settings, yada yada.
It works if I unplug the HDMI cables for the cable and BD from the Denon. The LG Simplink sees the TV and bada-bing everything sounds fan-ARC'd-tastic.
As soon as I plug in the other HDMI cables for the cable and BD into the Denon, the ARC won't work - in the Simplink menu it does not 'see' the TV.
Really aggravating. Anyone have a fix/suggestions?
As soon as I plug in an HDMI input into my Denon, it breaks.
Annoying as hell. Would be nice if the manufacturers all got on board with a common spec. Each has their own implementation it seems and they don't all play nicely together.
I have a Denon AVR-X3000 and have the same problem as you my ARC will not allow the volume to play through the stereo speakers but the volume controls and everything else works fine but the CEC on my vizio can not discover the device does anyone have a clue why denon stereos have this problem my receiver is barely 30 days old
except for the ARC (Denon - TV).
This setup will allow the TV to "centralize" all the HDMI input sound into the Denon,
According to which input is currently selected.
It works perfectly with my Panasonic Amp. and my Philips TV.
To my Philips TV connected with HDMI: XBOX, Satellite Receiver, PC (all with the regular HDMI Ports) & the Panasonic Amp. with the Special HDMI 1.4 port.
This way i can hear ALL those devices with 5.1 DOLBY Channeled to the Amp.
Even the PC! (the HDMI port at the back of my GIGABYTE NVIDIA display adapter transfers the sound as well!)

I don't bother with ARC because of the inherent issues. I just use an optical cable from my tv to the receiver so I can hear discrete 5.1 when broadcast via the internal ATSC tuner. And I keep my tv speakers off. All other audio is processed via the receiver and only video is sent to the tv. If your setup truly works the way you say it does, then congratulations.
1) Turn on ARC on your TV (make sure you HDMI is in ARC port)
2) Turn on Simplink on your TV.
3) On your TV make sure your speakers are selected as external speakers and not TV speakers.
1) Turn on ARC
2) Turn on HDMI Control
3) (here's the main thing) From your settings somewhere, most likely HDMI CONTROL, make sure to select AV X (input for sound). Make sure to use AV input and not HDMI input.
Then, play something from your TV native apps play a video. Picture should change and then it should automatically switch the audio to AV X (on your receiver)
I can't post the link of my receiver but search for Yamaha RXA730 manual and then look at page 21, 90, & 91.
