Thanks for your message. But just so you know, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for the UK. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So if you want the most accurate information, here's the Samsung UK portal for support on that product: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/UE46ES8000UXXU
Hope this helps you!
I have set up the samsung UE46ES8000 3D LED Smart television to a SAMSUNG HT-E4500/XU 5.1 3D Blu-ray Home Cinema System along with Humax HDR500S Freesat and a PS3 .
I have used HDMI cables from the blue ray, humax freesat and PS3 to the three hdmi connectors on the television; I have put the blue ray home cinema HDMI into the ARC HDMI on the television
Home cinema works fine when using the blue ray player. I then tried the television sound through the speakers. The television sound came on at first and then the front two speakers of the surround speakers started working and the television sound went off. but then when I turned everything off and started the process again i.e television switched on the sound came through the tv speakers, when I turned on home cinema the sound stopped on the television speakers and it appears to swop to the surround speakers but there is no sound at all. I have tried various combinations of turning the television on second the PVR on first etc.
I have connected satellite dish to both the tv and the sat box,
If I power everything down the surround sound appear to work through the television for the first time but then stops as above.
Any suggestions welcome,
