The issue in GetHuman2825685's own words
I am unable to get any Dolby Digital Plus audio to work through a newly purchased Samsung HW-N*** sound bar despite correct settings on both my tv and sound bar.**-I have verified my tv supports this output and have manually set this on my TCL * series TV*-both the tv and soundbar are using ARC hdmi ports and seeing one another but zero audio is being decoded by the soundbar, menu options will not even register sound when navigate my smart tv*-have already confirmed the soundbar will decode regular Dolby Digital audio over same ARC connection but refuses to recognize DD**-confirmed both tv and soundbar on their latest firmware*have already tried moving hdmi input on soundbar to non ARC hdmi in and it will not play audio in any format(and this set up is not described as supported via Samsung Bar manual)**I do not own a reciever and have not tested DD* output to any other device from my TV but I find it unlikely that hdmi would be failing with this format only(it is very similar to regular DD as far as requirements)**I have yet to open a ticket with Samsung regarding the issue but was wondering if you had any suggestions for me to try or if you are aware of known HDMI ARC compatibility issues between this particular soundbar and TCL * series (built in Roku OS)?
