Roku sound bar not recognizing HDMI arc on Vizio tv

I have my sound bar plugged into the HDMIARC but it’s telling me that it’s not. I went to the settings on my Vizio TV and the audio. It’s where it’s supposed to be and still not working.

Re: Roku sound bar not recognizing HDMI arc on Vizio tv

Even though from what I've read the cable shouldn't make a difference, I know I had a problem with a cheap cable.  It sounds like I got the same results as you with that cable and a Streambar, but a better cable just worked.
