TCL roku TV 6 series (2022)Hdmi issues

Hello I have a TCL roku Tv the 6 series running build 4317. I have been having issues since this update with my LG soundbar. Previously I used the hdmi out connection from my LG soundbar which is connected to the Earc port on the TV to play the nintendo switch. However since this update not only will the TV not recognize there I'd an HDMI signal from the Earc port it also trys to change my input to hdmi 1 which has something completely different on it and that device is not on. Both are gaming consoles but the TV should not mix up signal coming from different ports. I have tried using the actual HDMI port on the TV but that doesn't seem to work either as the quality on the port is terrible and I have no audio from the switch at all and there are black bars on the side of the picture which I am able to remove if I change the settings then put the device to sleep each time I use it. Why is this happening and is this going to be fixed so I can use my soundbar again HDMI 3 is a normal port on this TV and displays the fire stick fine roku seems to be not liking gaming consoles and soundbars with this update. Are there any fixes? 

Note:I have factory resetted my TV and unplugged the TV and ports multiple times to no avail
