How to connect your Sound Bar to external devices using an Optical Audio Cable?

Last Update Date : May 30. 2018

STEP 1. GETTING STARTED

CLICK HERE to know more about using Optical cable in Samsung Sound bars.

 

a). Connect one end of the Optical Audio cable to the Optical Digital IN port on the back of the Sound bar.

 

. 

 

b). Connect the other end of the Optical Audio cable to the Optical Digital OUT port on the back of the external device. For example, if you are connecting a TV connect the other end of the Optical Audio cable to the Optical Digital OUT port on the back of your TV.

 

. 

 

NOTE : If you need to connect another device and your Sound bar has a second Optical Audio Input, repeat steps 1-2 but this time connect to the Optical Digital IN 2 port.

STEP 2. SELECTING THE INPUT MODE

c). Power on your external device, followed by your Sound bar and TV.

 

. 

 

d). Press the Input Select button on the Sound bar remote to set your Sound bar to the corresponding input. For example, if you connected your TV to Optical Digital IN 1 press the Input Select button until the Sound bar front display reads 'DIGI. 1'. Each time you press the Input Select button the Sound bar will toggle between available inputs. See the chart below.
