Samsung sound bar not working

by Alectimmerman / March 5, 2013 7:43 AM PST

I have a HW E450 sound bar and wireless subwoofer just purchased.

I have a 55 inch samsung smart tv, just recently purchased.

I have a blu ray samsung player, purchased a couple years ago.

Like the directions say, I hooked hdmi out from blu ray to sound bar, and soundboard out to tv in with hdmi.

If I turn Aynet+ on, it plays the audio from the blu ray but leaves the tv on!

If I change the source to blu ray player it will play the blu ray audio and show it on the tv.

I tried just hooking up the tv hdmi to both input and output.

These are Samsung devices and I followed the directions exactly nd turned on Aynet +

Why won't it play the tv audio! Why will it only play the blu ray audio?

Hi Alectimmerman,

Sorry to hear about the problems this has given you. A couple questions: what's your TV's model number? Did you turn Anynet+ on both the sound bar and the TV? Which HDMI port is the sound bar connected to on the TV?
