Problem running LG TV with TV decoder and Soundbar

Hello,

So, I have LG UJ750V, Sony HTCT-290 Soundbar and a TV signal decoder from my television provider.
Now the problem is making these three work together in unity :/

TV decoder connection is HDMI , SoundBar is HDMI ARC.

If TV is connected with SoundBar only or Decoder only, it works perfectly fine. Connect them together and the SoundBar no longer functions, that is there is no sound and SimpLink function is gone.

The only way to make it all work together is turn on TV with SoundBar only, Decoder cable is unplugged from TV. When TV is awake , plug in Decoder back and it works like a charm . Turn TV off and on and the issue reappears.

Any ideas ?

Yes, optical cable does the trick. Although I would prefer HDMI due to some features and less remotes, but it is how it is. I should've gotten myself a soundbar with HDMI IN instead of ARC, looking around I get the feeling it's not very reliable,

Thank you :]
