    When I turn my Series X on it turns on the Samsung Tv but won’t turn on the Samsung soundbar. The soundbar is using ARC and the Tv and Xbox are communicating via CEC. When I turn the Xbox off it’ll shut off the Tv and soundbar, as it should. It’s only when turning the Xbox on the soundbar won’t turn on. Extremely annoying, Microsoft should’ve stayed with the IR Reader, CEC sucks.

    You are the only one out of this whole fucking YouTube who helped me out. My Samsung tv wasn't picking up my Vizio sound bar and I called up vizio and Samsung, whoever isn't getting HDMI/Receiver you have to turn on Aynett or whatever it's fucking called, give it a few seconds to kick in tho and your Samsung tv should recognize it like this guy said in his post. Thank you very much, I was about to throw all my shit out the fucking window until I saw this…..
