I have a problem with my NUC 7i3. I have a LG TV and a Samsung soundbar. The soundbar is connected through ARC with HDMI to the TV. The problem is that whenever I have the HDMI cable connected to the NUC. The sound from the soundbar disappears and I can only get audio if I choose that the TV should use the TV speakers.
It doesn't matter if the NUC is powered or not. It can be in standby and it feels that the NUC is "stealing" the sound from the soundbar. Whenever I turn on the NUC I get no sound from soundbar as well.
On the NUC it says that the sound plays through my TV but there is still no sound.
So I've managed to track down that the NUC is somehow in conflict with my soundbar since the soundbar works perfectly fine when the HDMI cable is not connected to the NUC. I can play audio perfectly for both normal TV and my AppleTV.
Does anyone know what the issue with the NUC can be? Is it a setting in BIOS that could control this?
