HW-E450 volume no longer controlled by Sony 40HX800 remote

by jedleland / February 27, 2015 5:21 AM PST

When I first connected the Samsung HW-E450 sound bar to my Sony 40HX800 television with a Toslink cable and an HDMI cable from tv's ARC port to the sound bar's IN port, everything worked fine.

Then, when I picked up and used a new SAMSUNG Remote Control TM930C 32Key to adjust the sound bar's settings, the tv's remote no longer controls the sound bar.

I made sure the "auto volume" is set to "on." I tried both fixed and variable settings on the TV, which is set to "audio system." The volume is now controlled by the TM930C, but no longer the tv remote.

What did I do wrong?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
