Be prepared for repeated questions from those who can’t find the time to read the other threads, yet find the funds for the B6. Dunno about everyone else but I prefer to do lots of reading and research beforehand [emoji1303]
But we are of a certain vintage i believe to any new comers just buy it if you can get it for less than £1600 it's a no-brainer. I just saved the millennials a good few mins there trying to figure out how to rephrase the same questions.Be prepared for repeated questions from those who can’t find the time to read the other threads, yet find the funds for the B6.

Just bought a B6 and pretty happy, except lip sync issues with SkyQ. Have it set to -5 which is the max and still not quite enough.
I am connected direct to TV via HDMI then ARC to Yamaha soundbar.
Any ideas of what else to do?
Have you got that hdmi deep colour option turned on, on all hdmi ports?
If you have maybe try testing by turning one of the ports ultra deep colour off. (think this what its called).
I'm sorry to bring something back from part 5, but it seems this issue isn't solved.
No matter what I try, I can't get 5.1 audio from the built-in Netflix app via ARC to my AVR (Yamaha RX-A860, latest firmware as of last week). I've confirmed that the TV itself can handle this: Playing a file from USB stick plugged into the TV will correctly send e.g. DTS to my AVR. But the Netflix app is always stereo. The app does show that content has "5.1" support now -- it used to not even show that two weeks ago. But playback will always be in 2.0 PCM stereo.
I've tried switching the ARC output format to "auto" on the TV (it was "PCM") but that made no difference for the Netflix app. Switching off HDMI-CEC ("SmartLink") makes it so there is no audio from the TV via ARC at all anymore. If HDMI-CEC is on, at least the AVR automatically switches to AV4 and there is 2.0 audio.
There are no settings in the Netflix app that could influence this. Playing back the same Netflix content via a Sony UBP-X800 plugged directly into the AVR gives 5.1 audio. So like others have suggested, unless someone knows of a definite fix or what could be wrong in my settings, I believe the Netflix app on webOS can't do 5.1 via ARC at the moment.
I have a new (possibly) issue!?! Have had to reset my B6 twice in the last 6 weeks due to it not recognising anything through any hdmi ports?
Once was after watching something from my NAS, the other when watching Netflix. Watched whatever it was fine, select Sky Q, then get audio through my AVR but no picture. Tried my Nvidia Shield, Samsung bluray, same problem, audio but no picture?
First time it happened I tried plugging the hdmi into the other TV ports, same result. Tried different hdmi leads, same? It's like all the hdmi ports stop working? Last night I didn't even bother checking everything. Tried a few things this morning that didn't work, so just reset it again, all worked after!!!
So the only way to rectify it is to reset the TV back to factory and set it all up again?
Anyone had similar or have any suggestions to stop it happening again?
Has anyone heard any updates as to when or if LG will bring HLG to the 2016 range? I seem to remember LG said they'd be bringing it out in an update. That must be about 9 months ago.
