i think i need to use ARC but i have never used it before. HDMI 4 is labeled ARC on the TV and i do have it connected to the ARC port on the AVR.
i just cannot make it switch over from the input audio coming from the cable box to the output of the tv for netflix.
Yeah...I have a Q6 and ran into this as well...the answer is so rather obvious, it might make you feel a bit foolish -- it happened to me, so try not to feel that bad ;-)
But, basically, make sure you have it connected the way you do, and then you have to choose "TV Audio" as the input source to hear the apps (Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Video, etc.) on the Samsung TV output audio to the speakers. Also, even though it should be automatic, you might need to go to the settings and change the sound output to "Receiver" instead...
See? So simple, it might make you feel a bit silly...Good luck to you and hope this helps...
