Control the Soundbar Using the TV Remote

Sometimes there are just too many remotes to keep track of. You can simplify things by using one remote to control your TV and soundbar. As long as your soundbar is connected to your TV, you can control the soundbar using your TV's remote. Just follow along below to learn how.

This function is not available when the soundbar is in TV ARC or HDMI mode.

Your TV menu may differ depending on the model.

Control the Soundbar

With these simple steps, you will be able to use both your TV and soundbar with only one remote. But first, make sure your soundbar is connected to the TV. Then, follow these steps:

With the soundbar powered on, press and hold the SOUND button until "ON - TV REMOTE" appears on the display. Next, use the TV remote to navigate to Settings on your Samsung TV. From Settings, select Sound, and then select Sound Output. From here, select your Samsung soundbar and then select Close. After this, you will be able to use your TV remote to control the soundbar.

Note: Only the Volume and Mute buttons will be usable.
