My new Mitsubishi WD-82740 apparently does not support ARC either.....though I am now checking directly with Mits to be sure. So today when I went to set up my 215, the sound was fine with digital audio...but no sound with HDMI. The reason I wanted to use the HDMI was that since the Mits has CEC, I could control the basic operations of the soundbar with the Mits remote (eg. volume, off and on). So, while attached via HDMI, I could indeed control those functions of the 215...however I got NO SOUND.
It turns out, however, there is a work-around. I simply attached the 215 to the Mits with BOTH the digital audio and HDMI connections. Now I get good sound through the digital audio connection and since it is attached via HDMI, I am also able to control the 215 functions with my Mits remote.
