  • 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...

    Hello, While I'm looking into hacking the subwoofer in another thread, was wondering if any bluetooth subs can be paired or if most soundbars will only pair with their factory counterpart. Thoughts? ...

  • 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#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#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#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#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

    Just purchased a Sony XBR-65x850D tv and HTCT790 soundbar. 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#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#663125: Sony - Sony 55XD9305BU and CT-380 SoundBar volume not the same

    Hi, I have the CT-380 Soundbar connected to a Sony 55XD9305BU TV via the HDMI ARC connection from the TV to the Soundbar, but the volume on the soundbar is too low compared to the TV Speakers. For instance, if using the TV speakers alone, they are quite loud on 15 If I use the Soundbar alone, it seems to be using its own volume number independent of the TV. I am using the TV remote to control the Soundbar Volume. So for example, when using the Soundbar (instead of the TV Spea...

    Hello, I have been trying to figure out a solution to a problem I have been having for the past year and finally gave up and decided to ask people much more knowledgeable then me. The problem I am having is I have a soundbar connected to my Xbox One through the Optical cable and my Xbox One is connected to my TV through HDMI.
