    Audio Return Channel (ARC) HDMI out from your TV (if it has one) back into your AVR.

    Another workaround but not for those who want Atmos.

    Is RVU required?

    RVU doesn't work over HDMI

    Or more to the point, if your TV has RVU and you use that instead of a client, HDMI is not used.

    Though that's no guarantee you will be a problem-free, and in a couple years when the TV stops receiving updates likely it will eventually cause problems for Directv.

    Lancaster,...
    I have a C61k-700 and running 0xfbf. I have Native ON w/ all resolutions checked. I’ll have to check my HR54.

    You can't. Oh, you can turn off just the tv, but when you go to turn the tv on later, the C61k turns off, even though the Samsung remote isn't supposed to turn it off

    btw, the way I fixed the unchecked 4K thing, and I'm pretty sure it's a coincidence, is I plugged the C61K into HDMI input 3 instead of 1 of the One Connect box and it stopped doing it. Other problems continue to exist.

    I don't know if this is true, but someone here or in another thread mentioned that this might just be a syncing issue between the AVR and the HR54 and that the GUI is just not catching up to the sync and that even though the box is unchecked you're still getting 4k. To me, even with the box unchecked it still looks 4K. But you get the annoying "your tv doesn't support 4k...blah blah..." There's so little worthwhile 4k on DirecTV that for the few times I use it, it's just not that big a deal.

    I think you're onto something. Currently watching the Yanks-Sawx on 106, ignored the message and the HLG HDR icon appears on my B6P. The resolution given is only 1080p when I press the info button for the LG but it HAS to be 4K. I checked the 4K box and I see no difference in PQ. I UNchecked the 4K box in the display settings and the HLG HDR icon shows up again but there's virtually no difference in PQ. My eyes ain't what they used to be but I can tell the difference between 4K & 1080p!

    Good call.

    What happened? Hasn't 0xfbf been out for a while? As of today, I'm no longer having the 4K resolution unchecked issue. It was happening just yesterday and now it's gone.

    I'm having the same issue. 4K resolution keeps unchecking after turning the C-61K off for a period of time. (It's kind of funny...on my prior C-41, that would drop the 1080p resolution forcing me to the do the same thing to fix it...go to Display setting and add a check mark next to that 1080 p setting). Makes one wonder if it's something with how the D software handles data from the TV. I have a LG OLED C7.

    What happens if you leave the C61K powered on? I think it was already mentioned there's no benefit to turning it off since it doesn't consume that much power anyway.

    I'm still trying to figure out how this issue has gone away for me on its own while, AFAIK, nothing has been updated.

    yes, that's been a recommendation against loosing 4k check mark

    Not sure if it changes if left on. Will have to try that overnight. Leaving on all the time isn't really practical for my setup. I'm using the RC73 remote to control both the C61K and the TV (power and volume) and when hit power off for TV it will turn off the C61K. Don't really want to have to use two remotes just to turn off TV.

    This might sound crazy but try pressing the ON button to see if it turns off the TV. Sometimes the ON/OFF buttons act like power toggles instead of dedicated on/off buttons. It does on my Samsung.
