When mine comes on, the lights blink then only one (the TV/BD light) stays on.
Tried the configuration suggested above with no luck either. This really should not be difficult!
We had to do some experimenting to get everything working as we like but it wasn't hard to at least get sound. Some things to remember:
1. The ARC port will send sound from the TV itself to the soundbar. If you are getting your TV programming from DirecTV, the only sound going from the TV to the soundbar should be from the Viera Cast applications.
2. The Digital Audio sound out port on the TV will always output 2.1 so there is really no point in fooling with it at all.
Starting with the TV -- if you connect the DirecTV receiver to the soundbar via HDMI then use another HDMI cable from the Soundbar to the TV, do you get sound for TV?
