    Equipment:

    Samsung 55" JU6800 TV
    Cambridge tv5 v2 Soundbox

    I am wanting to connect my Soundbox to my tv via the ARC connection (HDMI1 on tv) but the tv does not recognise the soundbox?

    I was under the impression it was as simple as.. connecting a HDMI to the ARC connections on the TV and soundbox and voila!

    any help would be much appreciated!

    Sometimes ARC needs to be enabled through the TV's menu.

    'I was under the impression it was as simple' - nothing is usually 'simple' with ARC.

    You will need to enable HDMI CEC Control on both devices (Anynet on the Samsung) - then configure both devices to use ARC and fingers crossed that particular combination of kit plays nice with CEC enabled.

    Different model of Soundbar but same warnings apply - How Do I Connect My TVB2 To My TV?
