I have the following:
I have connected the two of them with a digital optic cable and set the soundbar to D.IN.
My problem is that the soundbar doesn't power on or off automatically when I turn on or off the TV.
The volume of the soundbar is controlled by the TV remote (even though the volume doesn't display at all on the TV, just on the soundbar).
Any tips on what should I do?
I already did what you said, but still not working.
And there is no way to power on/off the soundbar with the tv remote?
Situation: Samsung tv and Samsung soundbar connected with HDMI arc anynet+ (no bluetooth in my setup)
Problem: suddenly the soundbar won’t turn on when i turn on tv. This appears «out of the blue»
Solution: On the Samsung tv, choose «TV» as Source - a blue checkmark appears showing that the current source is tv. Now use tv as normal and soundbar turns on with tv. This fixed the problem immediately.

When soundbar input is HDMI when turning off the TV the soundbar turns off but when turning the TV back on it does not turn on the soundbar. When in TV mode TV ARC the sound bar turns on and off
I got this problem recently and looked everywhere for a solution , your tip solved this problem , thanks
How is this a solution? I have the same issue. Selecting TV input on my TV will not display the picture/sound passed from HDMI1 input on the soundbar passed through HDMI-arc to the TV. Having to toggle the source selector after starting the TV to also start the soundbar is just as cumbersome as having to use the soundbar remote to turn it on.
Omg I just figured it out! This will only work if both soundbar and TV have wifi. Connected them both to your home network and add them in the smarthings app on your phone. In the app use the automation functionality to setup a simple logic
IF Tv = ON THEN Soundbar = ON
Presto, problem solved!
Thanks so much. This worked for me!!!
