Help with setup

I have a UE55JS8500 Samsung. I wish to connect a YSP-CU4300 soundbar. I am a newby in home theatre. I connected both through an HDMI Arc cable. Connected 2 set top boxes to HDMI in of soundbar. I enabled HDMI-CEC control to 'ON'. I disabled TV speakers to 'AUDIO OUT'. But when I tried to highlight 'Receiver' in Speaker List, it remains greyed. So far, I could not source input the soundbar. I need to flash its setup on screen to complete the connection. Please, may somebody help. The moderator, Profitt suggested I dump it. But I surely know of many YSP 4r300 owners who successfully connected.

ARC is as you discovered hit and miss.

You also have a soundbar and not a receiver so that sounds correct here. Try other connections like optical and if need be analog which might be minijack to the sound bar.

You try all hdmi connection on the TV?

It seem only one is ARC compatible. If they are not labeled, then you need to try them individually. Good luck.

(NT) 'Receiver' option in Speaker list of TV remains greyed out.

(NT) Because you do not have a "Receiver"
