Here's a way to get your directv remote to control the volume.
1. Follow the instructions on setting up your TV including the TV INPUT button.
2. Select AV1 on your directv remote
3. Press and hold the mute and select buttons until the LED above AV1 blinks twice
4. Enter 10812 (the AV1 led blinks twice)
5. Press and hold the mute and select buttons until the LED above AV1 blinks twice
6. enter 993 and then SELECT
7. Slide remote to DirecTv and it should still power your TV on/off and the volume control will control your Soundbar

If you connect the sound bar to a Samsung TV by digital opticle connection, the TV will then control the sound bar, then you can program the D-TV remote to control the TV and soud bar.

The volume and on/off functions can be controlled by your Direct TV remote ony if Direct TV includes codes for Samsung Blu-ray players in its Owners Manual. Normally, only the display device (TV) is controlled by satellite and cable provider remotes.

The TV should have a setting to turn the volume off to the TV. Go to "Menu" on the remote, then select "Sound" which will probably be written vertically on the left hand side of the screen. Arrow right on the remote then select "Speaker Select", select "External" ......Hope this helps TEX...

answer 4
your TV volume is as loud as the new system, which causes this effect. Simply turn down your TV volume while keeping the new system at a higher level, thus drowning out the tv volume. Also make sure your "sound mode" button is not on "GAME" as this preset adds a reverberating tone, or, echo effect.

it automatically detects a signal and will turn on and off according. The delay to turn off is 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure you turn off the device it is receiving audio from otherwise the signal from that device is still present and the soundbar turns back on.

Question

Lip-sync problem. There is a slight delay in the sound. Voices don't match up with people talking.

Its like I'm watching a movie dubbed in another language. The lips don't match up with the sound of their voice. Very annoying. I also have the digi1 to digi2 switching and volume to max on its own.
How do I syn the voices?

You need to adjust the Sound Bar NOT the TV. Get out the remote for the Sound Bar and press the "+" or "-" keys above and below "AV Sync" (which stands for audio-visual sync) located at the bottom left under "SPX Control" on the remote. Increase or decrease until the voices match the sounds.

I had the same problem. I found that my sound bar can't be too close to the TV. I have my samsung TV on a platform ( not mounted) and the sound bar in front of it. In this configuration, the sound bar kept shutting off. I returned it as a faulty unit and the second one did the same thing. By chance I happened to move the sound bar off of the tv platform and the problem ceased.

Very Simple. Just purchase an audio cable with two phono jack ends. Plug one to the Nano and plug the other end to the "Audio In" circle (next to the "optical in") and you are good to go!

Question

Auto power link dosen't work.

I have my HW-C450 2.1 channel audio bar connected to my LN46A850S1FxZA LCD TV through the Optical Digital cable. I see on one reviewer states the Auto power link does not work and in another review the Auto power link works. It does not work for me. Turning off the TV is supposed to turn off the sound bar and it does not. The sound bar goes off after 20 minutes if the TV is off. Does anyone have this problem? And maybe a solution.

Make sure your not set on Analog if you are : (From the manual)

If you select 'ANALOG' without connecting the Audio Cable, the set is turned off automatically
after 20 minutes.

Also try pressing the Auto Power button on the remote between the - button and the down arrow button.

Question

Why are we unable to use the remote to increase or decrease the volume after the TV has been on for a short period of time?

When we first turn the TV and the sound bar on, the volume control on the remote and the TV remote works fine. After a short time we are unable to work both the remote and the TV control to increase or decrease the volume. We have to work the volume control on the sound bar. We are also unable to turn the sound bar off with the control.

I too have experienced a similar problem. The unit sometimes switches audio inputs (I've observed both DIGI.1 to DIGI.2 and DIGI.2 to Analog) as though the input button on the unit or remote had been pressed. Both times this has happened I've been nowhere near the unit or remote so it would seem there's a firmware issue that can cause the switch (I have "Auto Power" turned off)

Both times I've corrected the issue by touching the input "button" on the unit to (re)select the source I was listening to.

Hopefully Samsung will issue a firmware fix (the unit has a USB port for firmware updates).

I had similar issues with random power cycling and I resolved by moving sound bar further away from TV. Since the sound bar touch controls are located on top of the unit and close to the TV screen, I suspect periodic static discharge from the TV screen is causing these type of anomalies. I actually had my sound bar on top of the metal TV stand that came with my Samsung plasma (PN63C8000) for table top installation. Since I moved the bar off the TV stand, it has been working perfectly.

All the lights will automatically turn off when a signal to the soundbar is not present, but it is delayed 15 to 20 minutes. Once time has passed it will go to the red standby light only. Make sure you turn your tv off otherwise time never starts. If the audio is connected to something other than the tv like a cable box make sure you turn that device off.

The two have a common manual (which says nothing about differences) and are functionally identical as far as I can tell. I think the C451 has a metal enclosure vs the plastic one the C450 has. The C451 also appears to be a little more expensive by about $20.
