How can I connect my HW-K950 to an external device HDMI cable?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018


You can connect various devices to the soundbar with an HDMI cable such as Blu-ray players and game consoles. HDMI prevents any degradation to the signal due to conversion to analog and maintains the video and audio quality of the original digital source.

Connecting External Devices to the Soundbar Using HDMI

1. Connect one end of the HDMI cable to either HDMI IN port on the bottom of the soundbar. For this example, the HDMI cable will be connected to the HDMI 1 port.
