Great news! I went through a lot of pain myself. :-) I did want to mention that if all else fails with ARC, you can always run a cable from the digital out. Of course for those of us who are wall mounting, we know what kind of pain in the butt it is.
Just curious, how would you compare your Samsung to your new LG? Some say Samsungs are supposed to have a little more pop with the colors, but I'm pretty impressed with the 8600's colors. I wanted a bigger screen originally, so I was looking at Sharps, Panasonics (plasma), and Samsungs, and the LG 6200. I always came back to the picture of the 8600. So finally I just gave in and put off getting the bigger screen till my next go around.
