No Dolby Digital when HDMI-CEC is on (only PCM works) - S90C

Some time ago I started a topic "No Dolby Digital if HDMI-CEC is on (PCM still works) - QN95A"

https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/tv/no-dolby-digital-if-hdmi-cec-is-on-pcm-still-works-qn95a/td-p...

Now, exactly the same problem exists with S90C firmware 1410 and Yamaha RX-V473 receiver.

When HDMI-CEC is enabled in TV settings, only PCM audio signal is recognized by receiver.

When HDMI-CEC is disabled in TV settings, then Dolby Digital or DD+ are recognized by receiver via optical cable (there is no option in TV to send audio signal via HDMI in this scenario).

Just to add, HDMI-eARC option is disabled in TV settings as my receiver supports HDMI-ARC only.

Based on the comments from the previous topic, I understand that TV firmware update solved the problem - now it seems we need to request Samsung to look at their code repository and apply the same fix again.

Hey, I have the same problem. Since a few weeks now, no DD+ is recognized by my AVR (Denon s960h) anymore. I have tested it with Netflix, Amazon Prime and youtube. Now reading here that version 1420 do not resolves the problem disencourages me 😞

Btw: I have the S90C as well. A TV being capable of transmitting a native 5.1 signal (via DD+ i.e.) is essential for many "home-cinemas" and not just a nice-to-have imho. We are paying a lot of money for those TVs to get these features!

That’s rigth.

eARC means no DD. Disable eARC and you get it. A mess and a shame.

That is not so simple. DD over HDMI ARC worked flawlessly on older Samsung Q80R and my receiver. And I disabled eARC on my new TV as I wrote it in my first post.

Every model, every overall configuration and -in this case- even every single TV seems to be is an entire world
