    Should the source be hooked up to the pass thru on the soundbar and to an hdmi only on the tv in this application?

    That way when the sound bar is off it passes thru the soundbar to the tv.

  • I am having the same issue, does anyone have a fix or is the device bad?

    It doesn’t do standby pass through. This is an option on some devices but usually the user has the option to turn it on or off. I don’t believe the Polk bar has thus standby pass through feature. Sound bar must be powered on to send HDMI through to TV
