I recently picked up a Samsung HW-F450 sound bar + wireless subwoofer for my living room. Initially I connected the audio with the supplied audio cable. I was having trouble getting audio from the TV and decided to try an optical cable. I connected it to my TV as well as the sound bar. I am not getting audio from the sound bar at all with this connection. I've tried to use the internal mute on the TV as well.
I am able to get audio clearly from my phone using the Bluetooth connection however. Is this an issue of compatibility with my TV? I've got a Samsung LNT4042H model (slightly older TV I know). Could the TV be the issue?
When going into the TV menu and going into the sound tab, the sound select option is grayed out and set to "Main". It will not allow me to change it.
Any feedback/help would be appreciated.
