Just got the HWF750 sound bar and UN60f6300 tV for Christmas. Reading through the forum, I'm seeing several different ways for hooking everything up. Can I please get some help here.

Samsung UN60F6300 TV
Samsung HWF750 Soundbar
Samsung Blu-Ray Player
DIRECTV GENIE

What is the best way to connect everything?

My first choice would be to connect the BD player to the HDMI IN on the soundbar, connect the DirecTV receiver to the TV via HDMI, and connect the HDMI/ARC port on the TV to the HDMI OUT port on the soundbar. You will be using ARC to get sound from the TV to the soundbar when watching DirecTV and a direct connection to the soundbar when watching a blu ray. I would also turn AnyNet+ on on all devices. There are other ways and people might have different preferences but that's what I would try first.

Thanks for the responce...

 

Why would it be better to connect the BD directly to the soundbar instead of the directv?

Your Blu-Ray player is capable of outputting more information for your soundbar to work with than Direct TV. Whether this is audible?

Thanks to David for responding. I agree with what he wrote. There is some debate as to whether people can hear the difference on most soundbars but, whenever possible, I prefer a direct connection.
