*It is not recommended to connect the Hue Sync Box directly to the TV as his will limit the audio output (up to Dolby Atmos via Dolby Digital Plus) from the TV to Soundbar via ARC input. In addition, Connecting your Hue Sync box in between the Soundbar and TV causes CEC switching issues and disables ARC. So a direct connection provides the best possible bandwidth/compatibility for your devices while not compromising any features, such as ARC from your TV. 


**Device such as cable box / satellite dish is recommended to be connected to the TV as they require a direct connection to the TV for any HDCP encryption software / keys)

Note: Connecting an HDMI splitter in between the soundbar and TV will prevent your TV from sending audio via the ARC connection.
