One connect box

If you wall mount your tv and place the one connect box say 4 meters away you would normally mount the sound bar under the tv. The only way to connect the sound bar is via WiFi which has its drawbacks. Why did Samsung not put an HDMI socket on the tv so the sound bar could be connected this way?

As the connect box has all the electronic gubbins to make the tv operate they then could not have a separate input on the tv itself...

not Strictly true, they could have put an HDMI on the tv and ran the information down the one connect cable.

It wouldn't work at all, you seem to not understand how the electronics actually function. Sorry but you have the wrong tv for your environment and arguing the toss that Samsung should have designed it for your needs makes little difference.
