No HDMI 2.1 on LG 2019 soundbars...

...and no eARC either. It's so infuriating, they have the new TVs with HDMI 2.1 and all its features but all the new soundbars are HDMI 2.0 with ARC only. Why are these companies so annoying. I expected all the 2019 products to be consistent specwise and have HDMI 2.1 and work together perfectly.... LG 65C9 with LG SL10 plans ruined.

It's because LG only put HDMI 2.1 on their 2019 TV's as a gimmick so it's natural they wouldn't remember to make simple things like eARC available on their soundbars.

Best to ignore 'Version' numbers and stick with Features - you may find the Soundbar's can be firmware updated to offer eARC, worth asking LG.
