Interesting Issue with HWMS650 Soundbar

Apprentice

I recently bought a HWMS650 soundbar to run with my Q7 TV. 

Initially I had problems with the reliability of the optical link, and after very helpful advice received here I used the ARC HDMI  connection instead. That solved the problem.

But after a week of using it this way, I found that the soundbar had set up a WiFi connection to the TV and was using that instead, causing a lipsync problem due to the delay over WiFi.

 

Now here's the thing. The TV is connected by ethernet, and I have never set up its WiFi.  And I have never connected the soundbar to the WiFi either - I haven't even read the instructions on setting it up.

 

My WiFi network is tied down pretty tightly. It has a long and complex passphrase. WPS and uPNP are disabled. So how did this WiFi connection between the TV and soundbar come about? 

 

I have disabled the WiFi connection now by blocking the soundbar's MAC in the router.  But how did it happen in the first place?
