Samsung HW-J450 + Samsung UN40J5200 = no ARC?
So I have that equipment. Both say they support ARC. For the life of me though, I cannot get sound to work. I have tried a few things:
Source (XBONE) to sound bar, sound bar to TV - what this gets me is control over sound bar volume and power, but when I turn the TV on, it turns the sound bar on to input D.IN, which is the optical input, and as such no sound as it isn't hooked up. I have to manually change the input to get it to HDMI and get sound.
Source to TV, TV to sound Bar ARC HDMI port - This again gets me volume no power control, but again changes the input to D.IN, but still no sound. No sound on HDMI input now either.
Source to TV, TV to sound bar ARC HDMI, source to sound bar (via optical) - this gets me to where I want to be, but requires more cables than I would think necessary. I have to add an optical cable from the source to the sound bar to get audio.
Both TV and sound bar claim to support ARC. I can find no documentation on which port on the TV is ARC, and I get the same results regardless. Both products are Samsung, but talking to them is like talking to the wall. Anyone have any ideas what I might be doing wrong here? HDMI cables are 1.4 compliant, so that should be good. Both sound bar and TV have been software updated. I just don't know what to try next
