I was wanting to use HDMI4 on TV because it is ARC, so I used the optic from TV to receiver for sound (OTA antenna) instead of the ARC on HDMI4. I wasn't happy at the time, but now I really don't notice any difference and got past the issue with the optic into my receiver.

Harmony has a macro which is automatically installed when you setup a Samsung display that can't directly address HDMI 4. I previously used it on my JS9500. One requirement for it to function is that you have an active input into HDMI 3. I connected my directv HDMI input into HDMI 3 on the OCB because I never turn off the HR44 (the directv input is also a good source because it doesn't exceed dolby digital sound and therefore isn't degraded by using ARC for input to the receiver). Then when you try to go directly to HDMI 4, the macro automatically goes to source HDMI 3 and then up to HDMI 4.
It may be difficult to understand my above explanation; but it does work.
You will have to re-add your set in Harmony as a JS9000 and then set up all your activities again. When you get to Input the TV should be on you will have several new options for HDMI 4 as shown in the attached image:
This is the upgraded version of the macros. Basically you tell it which HDMI ports on the SEK-3500u have devices connected to them so it knows how many sources to skip.
