Support for eARC

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    Your Android TV™ device supports Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC). By connecting your TV to an eARC supported sound system using an HDMI® cable, high quality sound that the TV can't normally decode by itself can be passed through to the supported device.


    • Make sure to use a High-Speed HDMI cable with ethernet.
    • Your TV doesn't display the eARC connection status. To confirm if eARC is working, try playing an audio format only supported by eARC such as DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby® TrueHD, and then check your sound system display for confirmation.
    • For information on the eARC feature for XBR X900H/90CH models, refer to support information for the HDMI 2.1 standard.
