A:AnswerAs long as the Sound Bar is plugged into the ARC HDMI on your TV you can plug all your devices into your TV and they will still use the sound bar. I have PS4, XBOX, Apple TV, and Nintendo all plugged into TV and my sound bar plugged into the HDMI that say ARC and all devices play through sound bar. Hope this helps
A:AnswerI actually got it resolved. It turns out even the HDMI cables supplied with the bar are not adequate. I purchased some 48 gbps HDMI 2.1 cables from Amazon, and, after I hooked up the bar using those, everything has been working fine now. No more audio drops, DV titles on Netflix and D+ all play perfectly. Not sure why this made a difference, as the cables work on my other 5.1.2 system with my Yamaha RX-A1080. Those same cables do not work with the soundbar however.
My guess is it's something to do with the HDCP handshake on your G700. Either way, it's working now.
A:AnswerHi Ck2, thank you for your question. Yes, you can hook up the soundbar's HDMI EARC to HDMI ARC which will give sound. However, the bandwidth restrictions of ARC will mean you won't be able to experience the high bitrate audio that eARC can provide. EARC can be switched on/off for this unit. ~Earl
