  • Turn on the TV and Soundbar.
  • Select the correct input on the Soundbar.

Step Four: Set the TV Audio Output

Go to the TV settings and then to sound settings. Scroll down the sound settings and go to the expert settings. Within expert settings, change HDMI and digital audio output to PCM.

Audio Output Settings:

  • Navigate to TV’s sound settings.
  • Change HDMI and digital audio output to PCM.

Step Five: Test the Connection

Now that you’ve set the audio output, it’s time to test the connection. Play a video on your TV and listen for the audio to come through the soundbar. If everything is working correctly, you should now be able to enjoy an enhanced audio experience with your TV.

Testing Guide:
