Controlling the Soundbar with a Samsung TV Remote

Tired of using two remotes when you're watching TV? If you own a Samsung TV, you're in luck! You can set your soundbar so that it can be controlled with your Samsung TV Remote.

Controlling the Soundbar

This function is not available when the soundbar is in TV ARC or HDMI mode. Only Volume and Mute are usable on the soundbar.

  1. Press and hold SOUND on the remote while the soundbar is turned on.

  2. Continue holding until "ON - TV REMOTE" appears on the display.   

  3. From your TV, navigate to Settings > Sound > Sound Output.   

    The menus may differ depending on your TV.

  4. Select [Samsung] HW-K550. The name will be the model code of your soundbar.

  5. Select Close and now you can use the TV remote to control the soundbar.

  6. Did you know that you can set your soundbar to turn on when you turn on your TV? Check out Using the Auto Power Link.
