I have the LG B8 and a Denon 2400H but not Sky box to test. Could it be a firmware upgrade for the Denon?

I don't have a Denon but I do have a similar handshake issue with the Sky Q box when it's routed through my soundbar.

I have to switch on the TV first, wait about 30 secs, then switch on the Q box. Handshake then works.

No handshake issue if the Q box is connected directly to the TV, but then I have lip sync issues on 5.1 audio.

At what stage do you turn on soundbar

Lots of threads about this issue ...
All point to an issue with the SkyQ box - needs a firmware update apparently but not yet ready.
I had the same issue - my 'work around is :
Turn on the DENON - wait for the 'loud click (technical term !) select the TV button - usually CBL
Then turn on the Sky box ...
All should be well.
I turn my TV on at anytime as it is simply connected to the DENON via the monitor port (no ARC).
Hope that might help ...
