Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

Correct way to cable my new soundbar?

    I just bought a new Samsung Soundbar and it's up and working but still confused about how best to connect everything.

    I have:

    Panasonic TV with 4 HDMI ports (one ARC)

    Samsung Soundbar with 2 HDMI ports (one ARC)

    Apple/EIR 4K TV with one HDMI

    LG Bluray with one HDMI

    Do I go ARC To ARC from TV to the soundbar?

    Should I connect the Apple TV to the extra HDMI on the soundbar or directly to the TV?

    I see some delays switching between inputs but the single Panasonic remote is able to control everything which is really cool (except DVD) but just check on what you experts would recommend as the best way to connect.

    Thank you!
