Soundtouch 300 HDMI ARC Defaulting to Hdmi3

I recently purchased the soundtouch 300 to a Samsung Smart TV, connected via Arc, however when I turn on the TV it shows briefly the channel but then switches to hdmi3 input. I then have to go to my TV settings select HDMI 1 input in order to bring it back to the channel prigram. How can this be fixed so when I turn on the soundboard and tv, it stays on the correct hdmi input and not defaulting to hdmi 3 input.

Re: Soundtouch 300 HDMI ARC Defaulting to Hdmi3

Hi, Is the hdmi3 input on the tv the 'ARC' input? (mine is 4 on the one connect box)

If so this is one of the issues with the HDMI ARC connections on Samsung TV's

Good luck.

 

We Samsung owners are pretty much forgotten when it comes to fixes.

Re: Soundtouch 300 HDMI ARC Defaulting to Hdmi3

I had the same issue with a Samsung TV.  Since the ST 300 wanted to shake hands with HDMI 3, I plugged my cable box into the HDMI IN on ST and the maintained the ARC to ARC connection and now I do not have to switch sources once the TV is powered on.

 

HERE is a post I made about this issue.
