Tips for Auto Update

When the soundbar is connected to the Internet, software updates automatically occur even when the soundbar is turned off. To use the Auto Update function, the soundbar must be connected to the Internet. The Wi-Fi connection to the Soundbar will be terminated if the Soundbar’s power cord is disconnected or the power is cut off. If the power is cut off, when the power comes back on or you reconnect the power cord, turn on the Soundbar, and then reconnect it to the Internet.
