I bought the samsung hw-e450c and it has a hdmi connection however how do I get it to play hdmi through all sources, like xbox,blu ray etc. I can get it to do it through digtial line however I always heard hdmi is way better for blu ray and gaming. I am starting to think this bar dosnt work and that Im gonna have to get something with more connections.

What do you have connected and where are your connections?

HDMI and digital (optical or coax) will give you exactly the same audio quality, so HDMI is not "better" in that regard. The difference is that HDMI has the bandwidth to transport lossless HD audio, while digital does not. If you had an AVR with a 7.1 setup, that might be important. With a soundbar, not so much.

i just bought the same system. it works great. the only problem is that it only has 1 hdmi imput? does that mean i can only connect my cable box (uverse)? what about my xbox and my blue-ray player? i hate to think i have to unplug and plug those in every time.

please help.

HI Cleverfool,

You can connect you're optical out from the back of the tv and into the soundbar. As long as all of you're other hdmi's are hooked up to the tv it will play the audio for them. If you are using component cables to hook up you're xbox to tv then you will not be able to do this.
