Default Samsung Sound Bar

Taking advantage of the model year-end sales, I purchased a Samsung HW-E450 to improve the audio of my older Sony Z4100. Pretty sure that this sound bar does not qualify for HD component but the sound bar does improve the audio quality.

I use an optical cable to connect the sound bar to the TV. In the beginning, the sound bar would turn on automatically with the TV. Somehow this is not working anymore. Is there a setting in the TV or the sound bar to get this working again?

I did some research and it seems that ARC and Anynet apply only to HDMI connection.

If you have HDMI In & out that would be your best solution.

I am using the TV as a hub now. My PVR, Blu-Ray and Media Player are all connected to the TV. Then the TV feeds the audio to the sound bar. Not sure if I can keep this configuration (TV as the hub) if I switch over the HDMI cables?

Also, would HDMI connection improve the audio performance over this optical cable?
