    hi,
    i bought a sony xf8096 last week and struggling with the pairing of samsung soundbar.
    Unfortunately the optical output of the tv is always on (lights red even if its disconnected) and the soundbar wont turn off because of this.
    My old Samsung H5000 tv turned off the audio signal after turning off the tv and the soundbar disconnected fine.

    Is there any option to bring this feature on sony tv?

    Why not try HDMI ARC if your TV and soundbar support it?

    Have you looked for a setting to enable CEC...”Sony Bravia Sync” as it's that that switches on/off the soundbar when the TV is switched on/off...it's not the optical output that switches the soundbar on/off.
