What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All but the sound control... I purchased this speaker set to go with the LG TV. I figured it would be a good match. For the most part, I really like it. The connection is optical and it takes over for the TV speakers. Only problem is that the TV remote should control the volume of the speaker. After all, the speakers turn off and on with the TV. Why doesn't the volume control match that? Very annoying to have three remotes (need one for the cable box, TV and speaker).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what is advertised but I'd keep looking I bought the sound bar to have improved sound over the normal tv speakers. The product meets that expectation but only that. Some areas that could be looked at for future models a. find a way to be able to use the tv (or cable) remote to control the sound bar. I believe simply publishing the key would help. b. I could not connect my tv to the sound bar with the industry recommended HDMI cable. c. (and I realize this takes much more effort) I sometimes hear an echo or the sound from the sound bar is not clear. This is likely due to the acoustics of the room. A feedback microphone in the sound bar or the bass box would allow the unit to self 'tune' to the acoustical location. Summary: I use it. It works. Wished I had shopped around a bit more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great sound for the money The product fits nicely without being a space hog in the room. The display needs to be a little bigger for viewing from across the room for us older folks when making adjustments. Even better if an on screen menu for the adjustments was made available. This is a great product as is though and I will recommend it to others on the market for a sound bar.

I have model nb2520a and have no remote. Can I pair it to the tv or direct tv remote to control it that way? Thank you

Asked by: Markghouse
All codes to be used for programming the Universal remote control will be located in the setup instructions for the Controller. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies. If these do not resolve the matter, then the two devices may not be compatible.

This unit is not wall mountable, right?

I don't have anything upon which to set this unit. Would it function ok on a wall mounted component shelf under the tv? Could it sit on top of the blue ray?
Asked by: Case
That is correct; this Sound Bar has not been designed for wall mounting purposes. It is not recommended to set this device on top of any other device, as it s subwoofer speakers are located below the device.

How to control the Sound Bar with LG50PK540 TV Remote?

I have the LG50PK540 TV and the LG Home theater (LGLHB535) and can't find a way to control the volume on the sound bar with either the Home Theater remote or TV remote....I have to use the Sound Bar Remote and would REALLY like to control the volume via the TV ideally. I have connected the Sound Bar with HDMI and via Optical.....it doesn't seem to matter, neither will let me control the volume.....is there an connect option to make this work?
Asked by: Tester1
We appreciate your interest in this Sound Bar and other LG equipment. The only method available for the television to control external audio equipment would be with the SimpLink feature. This control signal is transmitted through the HDMI port from the TV to the Sound Bar. The SimpLink option must be activated in the Television’s OPTION menu screen. This feature should be automatically active on the Home Theater System and on the Sound Bar. If you have additional questions about this setup, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
