I am having the "popping sound" issue while playing playstation 5.

I connected the Sonos Arc to the HDMI2 of the LG TV (eARC) while the Philips Hue Box to the HDMI1 input.

On the Philips Hue Box I connected the PS5 to the HDMI2 input.

 

my TV settings

Audio Output: HDMI Arc
DTV Sound Setting: Auto
HDMI audio input format: bitstream
Digital Audio Output: Pass Through
eARC: ON
Simplink (HDMI-CEC): Disabled
 

my ps5 settings

Device Type: AV Amplifier
Number of channels: 5.1
Audio format (priority): Linear PCM


Can someone explain to me why I keep getting the popping sound? Thank you!

I found the solution to my problem.
 

The philips hue sync, even though I disabled the CEC, still caused the popping sound.

 

I applied a NO CEC LESS adapter and definitively solved the problem.

 

I hope it can be useful to someone!

did you put the adapter on the hdmi cable connected from the TV to the sync box? one way is enough?

Do you still experience the popping sound if you enable Simplink and set the number of channels on the PS5 to 7.1?
