Let me check that the TV has bluetooth - this will take a minute of so.
Let me know when you are online.
Ok, TV has Bluetooth but I am unable to find an ENglish language manual for the TV. Let me look some more.
Ok, I have the information on the TV. Can you tell me the model number of teh soundbar please?
Ok, I'm here. Sorry I was not alerted to your response.
Ok, in the TV go to Sound > Speaker Settings > TV Speaker > SoundShare Settings
Select Add New Device and set to ON.
Then read this on how to couple the soundbar: http://screencast.com/t/2VVnVav8wJF
ok, will try now
Ok, let me know if it works.
Or doesn't :)
It shoudl as they are both Samsung..
it should, but it doesn't!
I can't seem to open/launch blue tooth on the tv
Let me look....
Ok, in the TV, go to Sound > Speaker Settings > TV Speaker > SoundShare Settings and look in Samsung Audio Device List
Do you see any reference to any BT device?
it says "no device stored"
Ok. Let's start again. Let's make sure that on the TV, 'Add New Device' is set to on.
Then go to the soundbar and push the USB/BT button on the remote
You shoudl see BT Ready on teh display of the SB
Ok, now go back to the TV and look in Audio Device List
Go into the TV's BT Headphone menu...
erm, ok - where is that, any idea?
Sure: Sound > Speaker Settings > Bluetooth Headphone
You should see the Soundbar listed
no bluetooth headphone option.....
Really? Under Sound > Speaker Settings, what are your options?
tv sound output
tv insallation type
then soundshare settings
samsung audio device list
Add new dev ice
Ok, let me look at the manual again.
yep and it says no device stored
on one hand it seems there is no bluetooth capability
It states that the BT feature varies by region.
You may not have it.
but the smart controller works which is apparently paired via bluetooth
and the salesman said there was!
I should have BT.
The manual clearly states that there is an option under Speaker Settings for Bluetooth Headphones. Basically how this works is that the TV thinks your soundbar is a BT headset.
It also states right abouve it: "" Availability depends on the specific model and area.
Do you have the manual that came with your TV?
what you are saying makes perfect sense
my manual doesn't mention anytghing about these settings - leaves everything to the integrated e-manual
Right, which is what I am reading. I'll upload a copy to you - hold on....
Feel free to download. It's a pdf
For now, an optical cable will work until we figure this out.
Or we can possibly use ARC.
(Audio Return Channel)
mmmm, down to the shops tomorrow then!
