I need some help with my Set-up.
- Connecting a Samsung SoundBar to the Sony TV using ARC.
- Volume does not reach full volume - Compared to Bluetooth and Optical cable. I am getting low sound.
- Volume gets stuck when increasing with TV remote at random numbers i.e. max is 100 but doesn’t go past 68 or 53 or 74 etc. (with TV remote). Will go to 100 using sound bar remote but volume will not increase
- Volume increase and decrease with tv remote inconsistent on soundbar
- Sony Bravia kd55x8500e
- Samsung MS750
Set up
- Using HDMI cable that came with Samsung soundbar
- Soundbar - HDMI Out (ARC) port
- Sony TV - HDMI 4 (ARC)
Other Points
- Works with Optical
- Works with Bluetooth

I do not have Wifi so I have not updated the TV or the Soundbar.

Need some help and suggestions

I had the same issue for days! Turns out the cause was another usb cable plugged into the hdmi port on the back of the TV in the centre (as opposed to the side hdmi ports where my sound bar was plugged in). The TV must be confused about which hdmi input to talk to. As soon as I removed it, it started playing through the sound bar.
