Why? Because my Tivo remote will not control the volume if I use the Digital audio. It turns out, this is a bug in the sound bar, as I've found many other people having the same issue. Can't understand why Samsung hasn't issued a firmware fix for this yet.
This and my Samsung BR player are really testing my patience with Samsung products. The TV itself is great, but the other stuff is borderline garbage. I have to constantly unplug the BR player and plug it back in to get it to respond. Also happening with this setup is that if the BR player turns itself off/goes to sleep, it automatically triggers the TV to change the input source from HDMI to regular TV (i.e. channel 3). The level of confusion with this setup is driving everyone nuts. What I think I have to do is eliminate the Rocketfish HDMI box, as I'm wondering if that's contributing to the problem.
Regardless, something needs to change.
EDIT: And to be clear, the bar doesn't default to D. In when I turn it on. It does it roughly 15 seconds *after* it's turned on. So if I have it on HDMI, turn it off and turn on the next day, it starts as HDMI. But then it automatically jumps back to D. In.
