I just got the setup (Christmas present that was back ordered). It all installed fine and connected easy enough. However, anytime I have everything turned off for a little while and turn it back on - the ARC is not connected. I have to go through the steps a lot of others mentioned (unplug TV, wait a couple minutes and plug it back in) to get it back up and running. I found a LOT of threads on this, but no real solution and they all seem closed (so starting a new one). I do have an older Samsung, model JS7000F - which I think is a 2015 year model. I had it setup w/ the HDMI (ARC). I tried the other trouble shooting steps I found (disconnect everything, unplug TV and ARC, start w/ Just TV and ARC and then add each component back one by one). No luck - initial setup is fine, but after turned off for a little while it does not find it when turned back on.
My full setup is the TV, ARC (and 2 ones as surround), Apple TV 4k, Cable Box is FIOS (Arris VM 1100) and an old blue ray player that I have not even tried yet w/ the ARC so it is staying unplugged for now.
- Is there a real solution for this?
- I just changed the setup to use the optical out and after a short test, that does seem to retain the output sound to the ARC/surround speakers. If it continues to hold, is this setup sub-optimal and should I keep playing w/ getting the HDMI ARC config to work?
