I have a Verizon Fios box, Vizio Sound Bar (SB4051-CO, )Samsung UHDTV (Series 6 6400) and Samsung Blue ray player (BD-H6500) what to hook up to what using which cables to achieve maximum results. Also would like to know if I use ARC, digital optical cable, or HDMI for sound bar/TV? Help....Thanks
 
Check that your TV will output in 5.1 surround sound through the optical and HDMI ARC connections. Should be a setting in the TV audio menu. If it does then
Fios box to TV via HDMI
Blueray to TV Via HDMI
TV to soundbard via optical
would be the simplest and best option for hookup. No advantage to the HDMI ARC connection in this case since the soundbar doesn't support lossless audio codecs.
You could use the HDMI ARC connection but you lose an HDMI input this way.
