Vizio Sound bar control with LG TV Magic Remote?
Hello all. I had a decent 5.1 sound system, but there were too many wires running around my place (my living room looked like it was plugged into the Matrix). So, I just got a nice Vizio sound bar (model: S4251w-B4) with a wireless subwoofer to combat the issue. I have the same TV (LG 55G2 - "smart" google TV) that has a nice magic remote with QWERTY keyboard.
While I solved the "wire" issue, I now have a new issue. How do I control the sound bar volume with the LG magic remote? If I cannot solve this, then I have to keep multiple remotes, including the small Vizio remote to control the volume, for my entire system to work. I contacted LG and they told me to contact Vizio. I contacted Vizio and they told me to contact LG. I'm at impasse!
At the end of the day, I don't really have a complicated set-up, so I don't want to use multiple remotes.
Is there a way to use the magic remote (with QWERTY keyboard) to control the Vizio soundbar? Or if needed, is there a universal remote I can buy (Harmony?) that has all the features of the magic remote and can control the volume of the sound bar?
Any help from the experts on this forum is greatly appreciated.
