Connect LG Soundbar To Samsung TV – Methods
These devices are perfectly compatible with each other. Here are some ways to connect your LG Soundbar to Samsung TV.
1. Connecting via HDMI Cable
HDMI Cables give the best audio quality. The transmission is quick, and the music is smooth. Along with this, HDMI can transmit both audio and video. Using HDMI cables is the best way to connect an LG Soundbar to Samsung TV. All you need to do is figure out the HDMI ports of both devices.
If you have trouble doing this, look up the instruction manual you received with the machines or download it from their websites. Use neat and un-damaged HDMI cables of approximately three feet. This length shall be adequate. Make sure the ports are clean and fix the wires firmly.
2. Connecting via Optical Cable
If you do not have HDMI cables, you can use the optical cable as well. These work just like HDMI, and you need to follow the same process as well. Although Optical cables might not give as quality sound as HDMI since they don’t support as many audio formats. These cables are a bit more expensive than HDMI as well.
However, the good thing about Optical cable is that it is less prone to electronic interference. If you cannot use HDMI Cables, then optical cables are still a viable option.
3. Connecting via Bluetooth
If you do not wish to work with wires, connecting via Bluetooth is ideal. These steps will explain to you how to do so.
- On the Samsung TV, click on the ‘Home’ button and navigate to the Smart TV Control panel.
- In settings, select ‘sound’ and then choose output options
