Check the volume on the Samsung, my guess it is on.

I assume that if you turn off the sat box the audio drops as well? If so that is one fix, but obviously you have able through somewhere. I think your best approach is start unplugging the HDMI and/or audio connectors one by one till the sound stops. Then try a different cable on that connection. You mention having HDMI 1 connected direct from SAT out to TV in, do you also have a SAT out to the AV7005 and the a HDMI from the Av7005 to the TV? If so why the direct SAT to TV If the TV speakers are turned off?
I tried the hdmi cable connected directly to the tv and then put it back to sat 3 on the AV 7005 both to no avail. I have tried the arc connection from the marantz to the arc on the tv and result is the same. I can run netflix fine if I go though my OPPO but would like to get it through the smart tv.
I have the same problem, ie the sound of the tv backround plays at the same time as the Netflix sound which is low as well. I called bestbuy's geek squad to come and take a look, when I gave them the tv model number they said that for some reason Samsung wont allow Netflix to go through ? don't know if that's true, sounds like its a possibility, but thinking of getting a roku 3 and wondering if that will work. I have a Samsung pn64f8500 plasma tv.
