I am trying to connect a Vizio smart tv to a samsung sound bar with hdmi. i've plugged the hdmi into the ARC input on my tv and the hdmi in the tv out on the soundbar but still have no sound. i've also turned off the tv speakers. i've tried every source on the soundbar and i'm still not getting anything. My hdmi cord is a little order. Do you think it isn't ARC compatable? is this new technology? or am i doing something else wrong?

What is the TV model? You may have to be on a specific HDMI, ie, HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, in order for it to work. You will need to know which port, if any, carries the ARC signal and is compatible. It may be that none do if the manufacturer has chosen not to implement it. A new cable might be necessary, as indicated in this article that addresses the same questions you have posed:

I had the same problem, finally figured it out. Go to settings, then CEC Settings. Enable the CEC and turn on audio control. Then use device discovery to find the soundbar and it will finally work!!!

Go to Settings, CEC and enable CEC. Enable system audio control and then use device discovery to find it and you are good.
