HW-K450: How can I control my 300W 2.1 Ch Flat Soundbar HW-K450 with a Samsung TV remote?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Soundbar control

Controlling the soundbar with a Samsung TV remote is not available when the soundbar is in the TV SoundConnect, TV ARC, or HDMI mode. Only the Volume and Mute buttons are usable with the soundbar.

Important: The process may be different depending on the model of your TV.

Controlling the Soundbar with a Samsung TV Remote

1. Turn on the TV and Soundbar. Press and hold the SOUND button for more than 5 seconds while the soundbar is turned on.
