is that by powered speakers or soundbar

I want to be able to control the volume with the tv's remote
I have a Samsung A950 that I would like to "better" the sound with out using my home theater set up
I have a blu ray player & satellite receiver conneted to the tv via hdmi. I would like for the sound of both of
those + the ota sound to play through the external speakers or soundbar. Is the best option to connect via
the audio out from the tv or use the earphone jack as the connection

May God Guide and Guard the USA!

Why don't you want to use your HTS? You can always get a programmable remote like a Harmony (that's what I do) and control everything with a single remote. I guess I don't really understand your setup. I have everything running thru my avr with a single HDMI out to the tv and an optical out to the avr for OTA audio. The tv sound is turned off and all audio (OTA, blu-ray, AppleTV2) is played thru the avr. I don't know how well the audio would be playing it out of the headphone jack to powered speakers. The audio would probably only be stereo so you'd be missing a lot. Audio out (optical) to a soundbar would be the better of the two options I would think.
