Frame tv Optical audio after bluetooth

I have my Samsung frame tv (2021) connected to my Vizio sound bar through optical audio (toslink) and it works great. However, if I switch to Bluetooth audio, afterwards(when I am done and turn off the Bluetooth headset), the Frame TV automatically switches to internal speakers, and I have to manually go into settings to go back to optical audio.

this is very annoying, since we use the Bluetooth headset often. How do we set the optical audio as the “default” option, so it automatically goes back to it when Bluetooth is disconnected?

as far as I'm aware this isn't possible. However does the soundbar have a HDMI output? if so plug the soundbar into the TV from the soundbar output and into HDMI (ARC) on the TV. This offers higher resolution audio than optical and so long as you plug it into the HDMI ARC socket on the TV then the TV will use this output as the default.

Hello, Thank you for the reply!

I have switched now to using HDMI ARC to connect my sound bar to the Frame TV. However, the SAME ISSUE is still happening. After I switch off my bluetooth headset, the TV automatically switches back to internal Frame TV speakers, and I have to manually switch back to HDMI audio (which shows up as "Receiver (HDMI)" in my sound output settings). 

How do I make the FrameTV default to using the HDMI audio after bluetooth disconnection?
