Auto Power Link to turn on soundbar

If your soundbar and Samsung TV are connected by an optical cable, Auto Power Link will turn your soundbar on automatically when you turn on the TV. If you have the soundbar connected with an HDMI cable to the Samsung TV, Anynet+ will turn the soundbar on automatically. No need to reach for the soundbar remote every time you want to watch TV!

Using Auto Power Link

  1. Connect your soundbar to your TV with an optical cable.

    Note: Make sure to remove the plastic protector caps before using the optical cable.

  2. Set the soundbar to D.IN mode by pressing Source on the remote or soundbar.

  3. Press and hold the left direction on the direction pad on the remote to activate or deactivate Auto Power Link.

    Note: Auto Power Link only works with an optical connection, and should be turned on by default.

Using Anynet+ and ARC

  1. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI OUT port on your soundbar to your TV's HDMI (ARC) port.

  2. Set the soundbar to D.IN mode by pressing Source on the remote or soundbar. After about 2 seconds, the source will automatically change to TV ARC.

  3. Press and hold the right direction on the direction pad on the remote to activate or deactivate Anynet+.

    Note: Anynet+ only works with an HDMI connection when connected using ARC (audio return channel), and should be turned on by default.
