So with the worldwide release of the B9, C9 and other new LG 4K TVs, HDMI 2.1 with eARC is available. If my understanding is correct, this should allow built in TV apps to pass through up to Atmos and other HD audio tracks to sound bars and AVRs.

What are you thoughts on this matter? Any way to test it out?

It doesn't look like LG is making the feature available to third party apps.

The receiver must also support eARC. If not, i'm sure the LG OS will not allow the playback.

"  This is on a C9 and Denon x4500h receiver with eARC on." ... it was tested with an eARC Receiver ..  :(
