Universal remote functionality

by D__Westside / May 18, 2014 1:20 AM PDT


I recently purchased a Samsung UE55F6670 and a Samsung HW-F450 sound bar.

Picture and audio is fine and working correctly however I can't seem to set up the universal remote to control the power of the sound bar.

If anyone could shed any light on how much functionality the remote gives as well that would be great. Can I control sound or just power etc...?

I also have a sky HD box connected and both sound bar and sky are set up through HDMI.

I have tried using the tv's universal remote set up.

Thank you, D.

I read the manual on the F450

And power up was only noted when we use the Optical link. There was some mention of ARC but I found no power up feature if we used ARC (links.)

From memory I think the power up via HDMI ARC and Bluetooth was asked before and let's see why Samsung says. It certainly was not in the documentation. Need a faster answer? Try 1800SAMSUNG or their web chat (see the samsung site in your country.)

Thank you. Since posting I have connected the sky HD box so I am able to change channel and access the guide etc through the universal remote. Still just an issue of connecting sound bar it seems.

In reply to: Update

The only power on methods I read was a) the sound bar remote and b) when we connect with optical and used the Auto Power button on the sound bar remote.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
