There is a delay in sound between tv and bar. When tv characterers speak the delay occurs when the other has stopped talking

Asked by: Angie
I have the same problem. I think is because the soundbar has a NoiseGate with a high threshold. HK, Is there a way to turn this off?

I have a Philips tv 55PUS6162/12 55" Ultra HD 4K with HDMI ARC and CEC. When I turn off the the tv the sound bar also turns off. When I turn on the tv the soundbar also turns on but there is no sound. Can you help me?

Asked by: Jonh
First make sure the CEC is turned ON.... Vera Link is turned ON... but, most important... When turning "On" .... Turn on the Sound Bar first and your TV should turn on as well.... and reverse it when turning 'off'.... turn off your TV first...

Can we use tv remote to control sb20 or we have to use its own remote seperately?

Asked by: Cako

My HK 20 is connected to my pc(analog input, portable) and my projector (HDMI) but I can't know which volume level and bass level I set. Is there an app I can use with the phone or PC to be able to have this info. Or is there another way to see it? Thanks
