I have been using my Samsung TV and Samsung soundbar connected by bluetooth. 2 days ago I purchaased a DVD player(replaced one that had been fried by lightning strike that entered house thru cable line). I noticed that when I looked at DVDs or watched Amazon Prime thru the DVD player that I had to increase the volume quite a bit to hear it. I purchased at optical audio cable. It runs from the DVD player to the soundbar. When I play a DVD, the sound is fine. It still doesn't sound right when I connect to Amazon Prime. What am I missing in my setup? Any advice where to start?

I have hooked up an HDMI cable from the soundbar (ARC) to the TV (ARC). DVD player is hooked up to TV by HDMI cable.  Sound seems improved on Amazon prime and regular TV shows. Only difference I now I select "HW-K450" for TV picture rather than HDMI3. Anyway.....

DVD is connected to the TV via HDMI. Also optical audio cable from DVD to sound bar. Sound settings for DVD player: 

Sound output seet to HDMI audio and that is the only choice. bitstream encoding. TV sound is set to soundbar.

Have you tried connecting the soundbar via HDMI ARC instead of optical audio?
