Connect the Soundbar to Your TV using HDMI (HW-K950 and HW-K850)

ARC (Audio Return Channel) allows TV's with ARC capabilities and capable devices to transfer audio back and forth using one HDMI cable.

Connect the Soundbar Using HDMI

The TV must support ARC for this function.

  1. Connect one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT (TV-ARC) port on the bottom of the soundbar. For this example, a Samsung TV with OneConnect will be used.

  2. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI IN (ARC) port on your TV (OneConnect). 

  3. To turn the soundbar on, press Power on the soundbar or the remote.

  4. TV ARC will appear on the soundbar's display.

    If the soundbar does not produce any sound, press the Source button on the soundbar or remote and set the soundbar to D.IN mode. The soundbar will automatically change to TV ARC mode. If the soundbar does not change modes, check the cable connections.
