So I was finally able to remember that my sound bar had bluetooth. A huge "duh" moment after preferring the optical audio connection for so long with the older ATV3. Anyways, the ATV 4 finds, and connects to, the sound bar just fine. So I now just leave the sound bar on all the time. Cool. Every time the ATV goes to sleep, it drops audio. But in the settings it says it's connected to my sound bar (Samsung Airtrack BT) but again, no audio, when I press the ATV remote volume buttons it just reminds me "tv speakers are turned off" so I "forget the device" the sound bar alerts me the BT connection has dropped, and then is ready, and then the device is found and manually paired again by me in the BT options. It's a hassle, really. I was super excited to get everything down to just the ATV remote, but I'm considering maybe an outside BT dongle by another company, or just going back to the optical audio cable, and leaving the remote nearby to adjust the volume from whatever I have it set to. Anyone having issues with their bluetooth connection dropping with their sound bars? I'm also open to alternative sound bars, because they're usually not too pricey, and it might be time to get something with some more oomph. thanks.
