Panasonic sound bar model no SC-SB1 my tv is a samsung smart

Customer Question

panasonic sound bar model no SC-SB1 my tv is a samsung smart hub When I've connected the two the sound from the tv goes off but doesn't come from the sound bar. I spoke to a Panasonic rep in ***** ***** yesterday who told me that the HDMI cable needs to go into a socket marked ARC. My tv has no such socket marked and I have tried all 4 of them. Any ideas please?

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Could you tell me the model number of the tv, please?

On most samsungs, the ARC port is hdmi2, note also that you need to be connected to the hdmi OUT port on the panasonic.

Could you try rechecking there initially, and with it connected go into the samsung menu under sound/audio, and then look for speakers audio out, and set it to theater external, to make sure it is detected there.
