My CEC is no longer discovering my sound bar ether, I just switched to TV speakers and really don't care at this point because I'm exchanging my TCL S535 for another brand. Too many issues with this $1000 TV.
Same here. I'm looking for a message board with more users reporting.
I've found that ARC will work and the sound bar on HDMI 1 is recognized if nothing is connected to HDMI 2 or HDMI 3. When there is nothing on 2 or 3, power on, sound bar displays "ARC" and sound is working. If a cable is connected to 2 or 3, power on, sound bar displays "D. IN" and there is no sound.
y'all are lucky. I have to unplug and plug back in my vizio soundbar every time i turn my 8 series on. This started in october with the earc update. tcl support claimed the 10 update would fix my problem but of course it didn't. Someone else in the 8 series forum got a replacement i believe. I'm not sure i even want one at this point
