Many of these questions I have too.
People are asking the same Q's here that I have. I find this DW-550 Samsung sound bar to be frustrating, especially since in use with a new Samsung TV.
The problems with having to use a 2nd (and not powerful - even with new batteries) remote for the sound bar is a hassle. We have both a Samsung TV and a Samsung Sound Bar, but I can't control both with a single remote. I have to use 2 remotes. I could see this problem if using 2 different brands, but not when both items are made by the same company.
I've used both ARC (hdmi) and Optical Digital. I bought Opt.Dig cable cuz it said I could power on sound bar when TV comes on. BUT, then you have to use the sound bar remote for everything. It's a hassle to always have to use a 2nd remote. I've gone back to ARC setup for now. I'd like to know how to get the bar on without having to either go up to the bar and manually turn it on, and without having to turn it on by a 2nd remote - without using Optical Digital cable (cuz then you have to use 2 remotes).
I too can hardly hear anything when I put my ear up to the subwoofer (despite +06 - tho that does seem to increase the bassness of the bar), but I'm not an audiophile to know how loud a sub should be.
So if anyone has answers to many of the questions posted here, I'm more than happy to hear them.
