  • Issue#110766: Soundbar Not Compatible?

    I bought a Hisense 55 inch 4K tv. I hooked it up with the optical cable and with the HDMI cable. With both of these options, the sound only came out of the left speaker and was distorted. I exchanged the TV for another. It has the same problem. I've tried two different optical cables. Those cables are old, however. If I hook up to the headphone jack, the sound is fine. But of course I don't want a 4K TV and a 300 dollar sound bar hooked up through the headphone jack. Hisense simply stated...

  • Issue#329586: How to get Spotify Connect on old soundbar cheap

  • Issue#484663: Philips - Digital Audio 42PFL3507 - Audio delay when connected to SoundBar HTL3110

    Opening the topic here, as advised by Philips support on the sound forum. I am having a 42PFL3507. Recently I bought a HTL3110 soundbar because the Analog output is designed for Headphones and if I have to control the volume I have to dig in the deep TV settings for the Headphones volume. Therefore I needed something digitally controlled. Once the soundbar got into the game there are Audio delay issues, as described in a few posts here (found two threads about 3140). For more than an year I ...

  • Issue#1179834: Sony - TV & Soundbar connection to cable box

I plugged the cable box and dvd player into the sound bar via the HDMI 1 and 2 ports and ran an HDMI cable from the soundbar TV connection to the HDMI ARC port on the t.v.

  • Issue#924: Slight issue with Klipsch soundbar

    I just got the Klipsch R-10b the other day. Great soundbar and its been working great. The only issue i have is every so often it sounds like the audio cuts out for a split second. I have only noticed it when watching from my Directv box, not so much on blu rays or streaming. Are there Ang settings I can try to possibly fix this? ...

  • Issue#988465: Soundbar Length

    I keep reading that shorter soundbars are best suited for smaller TVs (e.g. a 29" soundbar goes perfect with a 32" TV). My TV is 50" but due to the configuration of my TV area, the largest soundbar I can fit is 30". Wouldn't the number of watts and room size also come into play? If true, why wouldn't a 30" soundbar be sufficient for a 50" TV? ...

  • Issue#275900: Dell Soundbar AC511 driver causing system freeze/slowdown.

    I purchased the Dell Soundbar AC511 to go under my monitor and it starts to work as expected. However, it occasionally causes CPU to run high and the system basically freezes until I unplug it. When this happens, no sound comes from the speaker and I'm unable to use the volume keys until I unplug it and plug it back in again, when it works again- until the next random time that the driver stops working. Does anyone know how I can diagnose this issue further? Or does it sound like it'...

  • Issue#1149416: 5.1 with soundbar

    After doing some reading it looks like almost no tv's will output 5.1 from an HDMI signal. So I hooked up my blu ray audio directly to my martin logan vision x and I finally got 5.1 , but the problem is I'm going to have to change the cord out to the DVR if I want 5.1 there. Ditto if I try to use my PS3 for amazon and netflix ( I can get 5.1 on amazon and netflix that way yes?) Can I use an optical audio multi port like this https://www.amazon.com/Tendak-Toslin...ct_top?ie=UTF8 to solve this ...

  • Issue#108438: Vizio Soundbar suddenly stopped working VSB210WS

    Hi, I have had this soundbar for a few years now and it suddenly no longer works. I was hoping someone on this forum could help me out more than the tech support at Vizio. I have it connected optically, and with appropriate power supply. Power cycling did not work. When turning on the device, the LED at the front flash on once, a small sound is emitted from the speakers, and then the speakers turn off immediately. This is reproducible all the time. If I hold the power on however, the power s...

  • Issue#142008: Philips soundbar, sound out of sync on Apple TV 4

  • Issue#1176587: Using a soundbar as a center speaker? Possible?

    Pretty sure I know the answer to this one before I even ask it, but was wondering if there is any feasible way to use a soundbar in lieu of a center speaker? I'm considering getting a subwoofer from a fellow on CL, and he happens to also be selling a canton soundbar ... it has one advantage as to being the right size, as I need a thin speaker to fit on my TV stand. But it's a left/center/right speaker setup ... I could hook up my receiver's center out to the speaker's center in of course, but ...
