Question Samsung ARC not working with HDMI connected laptop.

Aug 22, 2022
Samsung ARC not working with HDMI connected laptop. The Soundbar disappears from the sound options, and the sound goes back to the TV speakers. The soundbar works fine with apps on the Samsung smart tv options, but when I need to use my laptop through the HDMI cable on my Surface Book USB-C adapter.

I CAN get it working by either bluetoothing my soundbar to the TV, AND if if I do another HDMI cable from my laptop to the Audio IN of the soundbar. All work, but the ARC option, which would be the less headache doesn't. Soundbar dissappears.

Also once it disappears I basically have to unplug both TV and sounbar for a while before the soundbar reconnets.
