So I have narrowed my choices down to these soundbars to use with my Panasonic P50S30 plasma:
Panasonic SC-HTB20P (will connect Directv to HDMI in, blu ray to optical in, HDMI out to HDMI arc on tv)
LG NB3520A (will connect directv tv and blu ray to soundbar via optical and digital coax or just send optical out from tv to soundbar)
Yamaha YAS101 (same connection as LG)
Toshiba SBX4250 (will connect DTV and BD player via HDMI, then HDMI out to tv)
I dont necessarily need to have DTS sound from my blu ray player, so I may just leave everything hooked up via HDMI and then use the optical out even though it's just stereo sound.
Anyway, I guess I am confused on what dictates whether a soundbar will turn on automatically with the tv or not and also if volume with adjust with Directv remote?
Thanks guys and gals for any feedback
