Tv is a KS800060 and when I turn on the Xbox one x it turn on the tv, soundbar and cable which is connect pass through via the Xbox and always have find the soundbar remote to change to hdmi1 so I can get the Xbox cable video signal and run the tv.

Phew, I know that newer TV's automagically use the HDMI-arc but older ones won't. You might wish to try to turn HDMI-CEC on, that might help

What is the full serial number of your TV and/or release data. I can't find it with a quick search query but I suspect its an older TV that is not capable of automatically detecting it.

I tried switching the Xbox straight to the tv and the sound bar to the tv via arc hdmi and it turns on and video display but the Xbox won’t send the Dolby Atmos signal like that unless is connected straight to the sound bar

I have the same issue, with my soundbar, but this has nothing to do with the sound bar. The same issue is with other soundbars. It’s the issue with the TV CEC/ARC. It’s not that smart and it thinks that bar should be on TV/ARC and it switches it. There is no fix or solution for it, Samsung, LG and others won’t fix it so stop asking. The only way to fix it is to use tv as a switch but you can’t get Atmos to pass because your TV does not support it. Atmos requires eARC, its coming next year, they want you to be frustrated until you get a new TV and they get their money$$$.

They can easily fix it with a function that locks input or remembers input and ignores TV.... but they won’t because it cost extra to have someone code this into the bar... needs to be tested $$$.

Stop searching there is no fix.
