Just purchased Samsung S95b and Q800 sound bar.
Will eventually hook into Yamaha Home theatre set up.

Initial Q ..
Connecting soundbar to TV …. Do I need an eARC cable or will a standard quality HDMI suffice ?
I asked in store … they said it’s only Audio, therefore standard HDMI is sufficient.

Is this valid advice ?

As far as I am aware HDMI will give you sound but has bandwidth restrictions which eARC hdmi doesn't.
If you can use an eARC compatible cable
