      Help Please-Using A Samsung Soundbar & sky Q box

      At present my set up is Samsung UHK tv, Sky HD box & Samsung DVD player but am changing to SKY Q on the 25th March.

      Presently my sound bar is connected via the HDMI out port on the dvd player & HDMI in port on the tv, & it switches on with the tv & works in a loop through mode with both DVD or sky. I intend to remove the dvd player from the system when SKY Q is installed so my question is if I plug my soundbar into the rear of the new sky q box will it still work when I switch on sky & tv.

      Secondly is the sky engineer likely to help in setting up the system if I ask, please please please sort of thing

      thank you for any repsonses

      David

      As your TV and sound bar are both Samsung devices I would suggest removing your DVD player a few days before the Sky Q installation and checking that the soundbar works correctly when attached directly to the TV using an HDMI lead. Ensure that the HDMI socket on the TV that you are using for sound is labelled "ARC" (Audio Return Channel). Then when the engineer installs Sky Q it will just require the HDMI lead to be unplugged from the Sky+ HD box and plugged into the Sky Q box.

      Thank you Seawright,

      Pretty much what I was thinking of doing, I'm only changing to Q because my old HD box has stopped recording, access to planner, no catch up etc so old ox will be going into the bin on Sun 25th when the engineer leaves
