Connect Devices to Your TV with One Connect

A Samsung TV is a thing of beauty, but when you add a game console or a home theater system, it becomes a masterpiece. Most of your entertainment comes from a box of some sort that is connected to the TV. This is the place to find out how to get that box connected. While the examples below depict a TV with a One Connect Box, other TVs have the same ports on the back. The connection methods are the same either way.

Connect a Blu-ray, DVD Player, Video Game Console, Cable, or Satellite Box

To connect a video device with a component cable, you need an adapter with Component In/AV In.

  1. Connect an HDMI cable into your video device, and connect the other end into the desired HDMI IN port of the One Connect Box.

  2. Use the TV Remote to select Source and select the device.

Connect a Soundbar, Speaker, or Surround System

  1. Connect the digital audio (optical) cable into your audio device, and the other end into the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT port of the One Connect Box.

  2. Using the TV Remote, navigate to Settings > Sound > Sound Output, and then set the audio output for your TV.

Connect an Audio Device that uses ARC

  1. Connect an HDMI cable into your audio device's ARC port. 

    Note: This is typically the HDMI OUT port, but review the owner's manual for your audio device to verify.

  2. Connect the other end into the HDMI IN (ARC) on the One Connect Box.

  3. Use the TV Remote to navigate to Settings > Sound > Sound Output and then set the audio output for your TV.

Connect a PC

Depending on the available ports on your computer, you may need an adapter.

Connect an HDMI cable (with an adapter, if necessary) into your computer, and connect the other end into the desired HDMI IN port on the One Connect Box. After verifying that the cable is properly attached, set the video source to use the device by navigating to Home > Source using the directional pad on the TV Remote.
