Hello. I have a samsung hw-e450 hooked up through the optical cable on my Samsung HDTV. The soundbar works but it is causing my TV to have major delays at start up. It is taking up to five minutes for the TV to power on. the powerbar goes on as soon as I hit power on the soundbar remote but the TV is taking way too long to start up. If I unplug the optical cable the TV powers on just fine but once it is connected it takes approx 5 minutes to power on no matter what way I power it on (soundbar remote, tv remote or power button on the TV itself). The Samsung TV is probably about 4 years old but Best Buy said it shouldn't be a compatability problem. Can anyone help?
