How To Sync Sony Sound Bar With TV Remote?

Lets discuss the Sync Sony Sound Bar With TV Remote with the help of the following steps:

1. Locate the HDMI ARC port or Optical Connection port on your SONY TV.

At the back of your SONY TV set, you will find the slot, either for HDMI ARC or an Optical wire connection. Make a choice between one of the two if both are present. More precisely, an Optical fiber cable is a better option than an ARC connection.

Just connect your ‘HDMI OUT’ or ‘HDMI OUT(ARC)’ to the ‘HDMI IN(ARC)’ of your SONY TV set.

Just in case you are using an Optical cable, plug in the ‘DIGITAL AUDIO OUT(OPTICAL)’ or ‘DIGITAL OPTICAL OUT’ with the ‘DIGITAL AUDIO IN(OPTICAL)’ or ‘OPTICAL IN’ of the Soundbar; present at the back of your TV set.

2. Locate the HDMI ARC port or Optical Connection port on your Soundbar

Find the port on your soundbar as well. You will find the slot, either for HDMI ARC or an Optical wire connection. Make a choice between one of the two if both are present. More precisely, an Optical fiber cable is a better option than an ARC connection.

Connect your ‘HDMI OUT’ or ‘HDMI OUT(ARC)’ to the ‘HDMI IN(ARC)’ of your soundbar.

Just in case you are using an Optical cable, plug in the ‘DIGITAL AUDIO OUT(OPTICAL)’ or ‘DIGITAL OPTICAL OUT’ with the ‘DIGITAL AUDIO IN(OPTICAL)’ or ‘OPTICAL IN’ of the Soundbar.

3. Turn on your TV and Soundbar Set

Once we are done with the connections it is the right time to open up your SONY TV set and Soundbar set to further move on to the next steps.

Just TURN ON your TV set with the help of your TV set remote or by using the options present on your TV set model. In the same manner TURN ON your Soundbar with the help of its remote or the keys present on it.

4. Optimize your Soundbar and check your settings

Once you are done with all the above steps move on to check your settings and connections and verify whether your Soundbar is giving off the sound of the TV set, or not. 

In the case of an HDMI ARC connection it is possible that the sound may not come up in the first go, so to rectify this just follow the basic steps given below:

  • Go on to your TV’s audio settings
  • Turn off the ‘TV Speaker’ option and enable the ‘HDMI ARC’ option.

If you have established the connection using an optical fiber cable, there are chances that the sound of your TV set will come out immediately after the completion of step 2, but if it is not so then go on with the steps, given below-

  • Go on to your TV’s audio settings
  • Turn off the ‘TV Speaker’ option and enable the ‘Optical’ or a similar option.
  • Now, turn on the ‘Source’ button on your Soundbar and adjust it to ‘Optical’.

This makes your TV Set understand that from now on sound has to be passed on through the Soundbar.

5. Adjust the Sound

Once everything is done go on and adjust your Soundbar’s volume by just controlling it through your TV remote. Just identify the best volume range for your Soundbar and your System’s speakers to produce the best quality of sound.
