Question 1: Our soundbar has been programmed into our TV's remote control. When I first turn the TV on, the volume on the soundbar comes on very loud and I have to quickly turn it down. This happens every time we turn on the TV.
Question 2: Our soundbar is connected to our HDTV via optical cable. When viewing regular (analog) cable channels, I turn off the TV volume and just use the soundbar. However, when viewing HD channels, I have to turn the TV audio back on because the soundbar doesn't work on HD channels (except the National Geographis HD channel). Audio will also come through the soundbar if I watch the HD channels through my DVD Recorder.
Can anyone please suggest solutions to these problems?
