Samsung HW-D550 Sound Bar

I've hooked up a Samsung HW-D550 sound bar to a Samsung UN60D8000 TV. My goal is to get the sound bar to turn on and off with the TV power and be able to be controlled the sound bar volume with the TV remote. The sound bar currently turns off when the TV power is turned off; however, I can't get it to turn on when the TV is powered up. The bar is connected with the optical cable (I also tried the HDMI cable but didn't have any luck). According to the user manual, the "auto power link" function which links the power doesn't work when the Anynet+ is on... which allows TV remote volume control to work the sound bar. Does anyone have any thoughts? I can't believe Samsung would create a sound bar that you can't power on with their TV and then use the TV remote to control the sound bar. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
