Recommendation: HDMI Switch with Duel HDMI or Optical/TosLink Output
New to the forum and Bose overall.
Just bought a Soundbar 700 and Base Module 700, and having similiar problems to a number of others on here with Samsung TV's in the HDMI ARC connectivity 'not playing ball' - I've managed to get the TV to recognise Soundbar (intermittently) but never had any sound.
I've attached the TV to the Soundbar via optical/TosLink, and to be honest it's awful - happier with the TV sound.
I've attached my PS4 to the soundbar via optical/TosLink and that was much better, and next step it to try and connect my blu-ray player direct to the soundbar via HDMI to ensure I get sound that way.
If that's successful my plan is to buy an HDMI switch to connect my kit to (via HDMI), with output via one HDMI to the TV for picture, and another HDMI or optical/TosLink output to the soundbar for sound.
Has anyone tried thsi approach, and if they have do you have any recommendations of a suitable switch?
Think this is the last throw of the dice, if can't progress on this basis it looks like I'll have to return the kit.
Any help much appreciated.
