Connecting the Streambar When the Cable Box is Connected to the HDMI(ARC) Recepticle On the TV

The cable box is using the HDMI(ARC) port on the TV set.  I want to use the streambar to replace the internal speakers on the television set, in addition to having the option to stream Netflix.  How do I do that?

Cable box doesn't need an arc input, a regular hdmi input will do, where your streambar has too have arc to hear other components connected to your tv like the cable box. The arc allows the audio and video from the streambar to flow to the tv, at the same time allow audio go from the tv to the streambar.

Hello:

I don't know what happened -- did you guys do anything at your end?  The streambar worked perfectly last night -- no intermittent dropping of sound.  Maybe the problem I encountered was just a momentary fluke?  Anyway, it seems to be working fine now.
