The only thing I can think of is an ARC protocol hand-shaking issue. I don't know how you can get to the bottom of that. Maybe try hooking the Outlaw to another ARC-ready TV?

Shouldn’t I be able to see the OSD? I can’t get it to show.

Have you tried using a different HDMI port on the LG just to enable ARC? Then switch to HDMI2.

No I haven’t. I’ll give it a try.

I finally bought a toslink and it seems to be working but the quality of fidelity seems underwhelming to me.

Captain, LG does not list any specs for the optical connection but lots of audio specs for HDMI. LG specifically says to connect via HDMI for the best audio quality.

For the best connection CEC\ARC every manufacturer states HDMI. SPDIF/Digital will not do ATMOS/DTSX and the likes. They only transfer up to 7.1.
HDMI has become the everything cable for most every device and function.

Another issue could be the HDMI cables version. A cable of a couple years ago will not pass the new codecs. Too a newer machine.

Could be a bad HDMI board. Very prone to failure.
