Do you have the sound bar connected directly to the television or are you using a receiver in the middle? Does this source change happen the moment the television is loaded up or once the desired source is selected?

The soundbar is hooked directly to the tv via hdmi arc and the directv stb is hooked to the tv via hdmi 1. The source changes on the soundbar to hdmi when after the tv is loaded.

I have a similar problem. Here is my hook up....Direct TV output hdmi to imput hdmi on soundbar ; soundbar hdmi output to Samsung tv imput ARC ; DVD player hdmi output to TV imput & optical cable from dvd to soundbar;

When direct tv, soundbar, & TV  get turned on, the sounbar starts in D-IN mode. The TV asks for a connected source. I switch it to hdmi and tv showing works, but sometimes after several seconds, the source switches.  Frustrating

Have you tried unplugging the optical cable completely and letting the ARC send the sound back to the soundbar?

Yes I removed the optical cable. I have tried turning the HDMI off on the direct tv menu. Still changes source after a few moments

usergSaI82DeiE, just due to your wording  I want to ask, for you is the source changing on the TV itself or the Sound bar's sourcing?
