Can I set my Soundbar to default audio output when I start my UE75NU8000?

New Member

I have my soundbar connected via optical cable to my tv. It turns on and off with the tv but I have to switch the audio output from tv speakers to the soundbar everytime I start my tv. Is there a way to define a standard and have the soundbar as default audio output channel? I was searching the internet and the settings menu but couldn't find a solution.


Thx for feedback.

I have this same issue. Does anyone know how to set the default audio output to optical on a samsung tv?

Hi @Baranjagon and @Rinoan.


There's a note on this on page 38 of the user manual for the TV. This refers to making sure the audio device is switched on, before connecting the optical cable.


Give this a whirl and let us know how you get on.
