Does my TV have ARC
I have 37PFL8694h/12, bought it '09, i believe. Although it doesnt say ARC in the manual nor next to a hdmi input, i do have Easylink and manual mentions something about having "System Audio Control" which kinda sorta is like ARC, at least its described quite similarly
System audio control
When you connect your TV to HDMI
CEC compliant devices, your TV can
switch automatically to play audio from the
To use one-touch audio, you must map the
audio input from the connected device to
You can use the remote control from the
connected device to adjust the volume.
I am a little bit confused as to the part "switch automatically to play audio from the
connected device. ", though. Does it mean "switch automatically to play audio [coming] from the
connected device. " or rather like "switch automatically to play [TV's] audio from the
connected device['s speakers]. " ?
and if it's the former, why would CEC be important at all in that case

your TV does not have ARC.
What your TV has is HDMI and so it has CEC (easyLink).
So you can connect an Audio System via HDMI and Digital Audio Out.
Audio Out will transmit Audio to the System.
via HDMI the TV and the System can interact change controls, so it would be possible for you to control the volume of the TV via the Remote of the Audio System etc.
