Setting up the TV to work with the soundbar is easy.  Changed the sound settings to HDMI arc, and it was great. The samsung tv controlled the soundbar volume, and it would turn off the soundbar when the tv was turned off.  However, turning on the tv does not turn on the soundbar.  Each time I turn on the tv, it reverts back to the tv speakers. We have to setup the surround sound each time we turn on the tv. 

 

Support said this is the default setup, which sounds incorrect. I've never had this issue with a tv, and I don't see why that would be the intended setup. Is anyone else able to get their Samsung tv to turn on the soundbar?
