The O Word – This is Only a Test 628 – 12/2/21

After a restful Thanksgiving holiday, we’re back with an extended Moment of Science for Kishore to answer our questions about the Omicron coronavirus variant. We also give a spoiler-free review of the first two episodes of Haweye and recap the Unity Slices VR demo Norm tried last week. Plus, what’s one movie you’d want to be able to watch again for the very first time? No wrong answers here.

  1. One problem with (e)ARC and optical pass-through with the new LG OLEDs (CX and newer) is they don’t support DTS pass-through, only DD. This means if you rely on (e)ARC to your receiver from your disc player, some movies won’t get surround sound unless your player is set to decode it to multi-channel PCM before sending it over HDMI (and this only works for eARC, ARC and spdif don’t support multi-channel PCM). Fortunately many 4k bluray players have a dedicated audio-hdmi connection so you can connect the video direct to the TV, but connect the audio direct to the receiver.
