I installed a Samsung soundbar to my new Sony television. It is connected with an optical cable. When I pause the TV and then come back to resume play there is a loud popping sound coming from the soundbar. Both Samsung and Sony do not think it is their problem. Might this be a Dish problem? I did solve the popping problem by connecting the optical cable to the Hopper instead of the TV. So it was the TV that was causing the problem. Now the sound bar does not go on and off with the TV and I need to turn it on and off manually. The sound level does work with the Dish remote however.
