Q900A passthrough dumb question


Hello all!

I bought a Samsung Q900a soundbar, connected like this:
apple tv 4K -> to q900a hdmi port 1 -> q900a hdmi out -> to TV hdmi arc, and I have a question:

When i turn off the soundbar, i lose all signal from the apple tv, audio and video. Soundbar must be on all the time to get the Apple TV signal :(

It's annoying because I don't need soundbar on all the time, just to watch some movies.

If all connected to TV, so soundbar to TV hdmi arc and apple TV to TV hdmi port, it's ok but I lose the audio effects.

I thought the soundbar was passthrough, letting the apple tv signal through even if the bar was turned off.

Did I missing something or do I have soundbar on all the time?

Thanks and sorry for that numb question, and my poor english o_O
