Connecting Soundbar using ARC

I just bought a soundbar that uses an ARC connection. When I started connecting it, I found that DirecTv is already connected through the ARC outlet.  Does DirecTV need the ARC connection? If not, how do I change the DIRECTV connection, so I can use the ARC connection for my new sound bar?

AFAIK you can use any HDMI port to connect the DTV receiver to.

If I change the DirecTV receiver from the ARC port to a different HDMI port on my Samsung smart TV (model UN65RU9000), do I need to change anything in settings or will it automatically recognize the change?

You need to consult the TV manual for that.
