When you figure this out, be sure to post how you managed to accomplish it. The fact that this soundbar does not automatically power-on with the TV and be controlled by the (Samsung) TV remote (or TIVO remote) is unacceptable. What the heck was Samsung thinking? Spending additional money for a Harmony remote is not an acceptable workaround..
Lets see if I have this correct:
- It turns on automatically with an optical
connection, but then you have to use the HWE450 remote to control the volume
- You can control the volume with your TV (or TIVO) remote if you hook it up with the HDMI
connection, but then you have to use the HWE450 remote to turn it on
In my opinion, this is a very bad design with unacceptable shortcomings (& may ultimately result in me returning it)
I like the sound, just don't care for the unintuitive operation.
Someone please tell me I've missed something.
