Question about JBL Cinema SB100

Open Question

I recently purchased a 60" Samsung Smart TV and a JBL Cinema SB100 Sound Bar. I was really looking forward to using one remote and having the volume from the sound bar be controlled by the TV's remote. Unfortunately I've tried pairing the remote for the TV with the sound bar using both the instructions for the sound bar and the tv, but the TV/Remote won't recognize the sound bar. The sound bar does work when using the sound bar's remote, so as far as I know it's connected properly. Do you know if there are any tricks to this in order to get the TV remote to work on the Sound Bar. Thanks so much for your help! I hope we can figure this out.

Salutations ddog,

Really this is a question of sources. The reason your able to hear surround sound when connected to your DVD player is that is what is providing your audio and video source. When your watching television it would depend on how your getting your broadcasts. If you are either receiving an over-the-air broadcast or cable directly to your set, your television becomes the source. As your television is providing the signal, you would need it to loop back to your receiver to provide that surround sound.

Now for the good news, if you have a cable or satellite box these should have outputs to connect to your receiver to provide the audio source.

Also keep in mind not all broadcasts provide a version of surround sound. Most newer home theater systems will replicate surround sound artificially.

I hope this helps.

How do I make the sound sinc with picture after I've connected to sound bar


I have a 60 in. Vizio, but I'm pretty sure this will help you out: With the remote that came with your TV (not TiVo, ScientificAtlanta or some other device programmed to control it), press the menu button, then click on audio. You should then see a choice that says "lip synch" or something like it. Click on that and a bar graphic should appear on the screen that looks something like this:
_ __________________ +. This allows you two synchronize and set the audio with the picture - either slow it down or speed it up by a few seconds either way by using the TV remote. I've never had to use it with my Samsung HT, but I know it's there and I know it's function. My TV is also a smart tv, so this should work for you. Good luck. . .

The soundbar picks up my neighbors music. This seems to happen in the middle of the night when the unit is actually off. Can I change the bluetooth pairing password or any other solution


That's pretty weird all I can suggest is unplugging the speaker from its reciever. Whether it be a TV etc. another suggestion is to look up this sound bar and see if it's passive or active.

How do i set my home theatre as the default speakers on my viera led/lcd tv. When i turn off the tv and my JBL SB350 soundbar it resumes to tv speakers when i turn it on again?


Page 104 of the manual. It's through the Viera link settings. I have a similar TV. It's a little convoluted.

Through Viera link you set sound selection to Home Cinema and it mutes your TV speakers when your external speakers are on. I use that now now with a similar sound box (Zvox). It works fine. That doesn't work with the playbar...

enable hotel mode by pressing, at the same time, the down volume button on the side of your tv and the 'tv' button on the remote 3 times. A menu will pop up where you can set max volume to 0.

Samsung HT-A100 Home Cinema system plays cd only with tv on!


Hi,
You need to put away the remote for your TV and use only the remote for your HT system. Your HT remote should work on your TV by default. Your Samsung HT remote should have a TV button and a DVD/Receiver button (or HT button). When using only the TV, press the TV button and then use it for just the TV and when using the HT system, press the DVD/Receiver button and then you can use the HT system.
If for some reason your TV is not set on the Samsung HT remote by default, your HT users manual should have a list of codes that you can use to program your HT remote. Hope that helps you. Gary
