I just bought a Samsung HW-F450 Soundbar today and was wondering if anyone could help me with the best possible setup please?
The Soundbar has both HDMI in and out ports, as well as a Digital Audio Optical port. My Samsung TV has 3 HDMI ports, one of them being ARC. I also have a TiVo and a PS3 which I watch all my movies on.
I've heard that the ARC port is best to use, but if I have the ARC, is there no need to connect my TiVo and PS3 to the Soundbar? Can they just be connected directly to the TV HDMI ports?
Both the TV and the Soundbar also support the Samsung feature "Soundshare", which means the Soundbar can be connected to the TV via Bluetooth. I tried it and the idea of no wires are great, but not sure if it'll give me the best sound.
Ok, however I've read that it is also good to connect my Blu-ray player (PS3) to the HDMI IN on the Soundbar, should I do this, or will I still get the same benefit of connecting the Blu-ray direct to the TV, since I have the HDMI ARC?
