Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung HW-C450 Soundbar Speaker (Electronics)
Bought this soundbar to go along with my 52" Samsung LCD. What a big improvement over the TV speakers! Watched 2 Blu-ray movies with it already and was very impressed by the sound. It was very easy to hookup. Just used the provided optical cable to connect the sound bar to the TV. Plugged in the subwoofer, plugged in the soundbar, turned on.... and the sub was instantly connected to the soundbar. It was up and running literally in minutes. The volume of the soundbar can be controlled by the TV remote so that's nice. You may or may not want to turn off the TV speakers. The problem with turning off your TV speakers is it will say "not available" on your TV when you adjust the volume with the TV remote, but that is a minor problem.

Hi, one workaround im using for the "not available" message is to keep the TV speakers on, choose custom audio settings and reduce each EQ to the lowest point.. this will pretty much kill the audio volume of the tv.. then you can sync the tv volume number with that of the soundbar by just putting both volumes to 0

I tried your workaround (reduce each EQ to lowest setting) but I could still hear the TV speakers just a bit... enough that it was distracting. Still, pretty good idea.
My problem with the soundbar is that if I am in my Samsung TV's @TV mode I can only use the soundbar's remote to control the volume or the TV switches back to the cable box input. Weird. Might have something to do with the cable box's remote also controlling my TV's volume.
Other than that great quality product.

I have a work around, just plug something in the headset plug of the tv (3.5mm fitting in there). You can leave the tv speaker on because they are "disabled" by the headset... works great for me... no more message!
