Great soundbar for the price, but difficult to set up properly with smartTV apps
on September 13, 2014
This soundbard does not decode Dolby Digital audio format. Our Samsung smart TV works fine with the soundbar until we try to use the apps (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc). The apps seem to bypass the decoder and there is no sound from the soundbar.
Found a workaround online
1. Open app (e.g. Netflix) and the desired show
2. Pause the show and go to the sound settings in the tv menu
3. Scroll down to digital audio out
4. Switch to PCM
Otherwise, the soundbar works great, particularly for the price.
