I have a Samsung 55" LED TV connected to a Samsung Soundbar that works just fine.
I also just got a new Sony Receiver connected in a 5.1 arrangement that works as both my audo receiver for music and a Home Theater setup.
The question is - is there an easy way to have BOTH the Soundbar and the Receiver connected to the TV so I can use either one (not both). For example, when watching the news or when I need to keep the volume down, I don't need full 5.1 sound. However, when watching a movie, I want more than the Soundbar and want to use the receiver.
Currently, when I turn the TV on, the soundbar automatically turns on. If I also turn on the receiver, there is a terrible "echo" in the sound because of a delay, so using them together doesn't really work.
Does anyone have BOTH a soundbar and a receiver and found an easy way to connect them to the TV, so you can easily choose which one to use?
