i have an universal remote
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

An universal remote may not work to navigate in TV menu for settings.

However, you can use control buttons on side panel of TV, press Menu to get menu screen, use Vol and Channel buttons to move cursor in menu and press Source button to select an item/ execute settings.

Using control button on TV go to TV menu then select Audio (speaker icon in menu) and select TV Speaker option and set it Off, this will enable optical output port on TV and soundbar will get digital audio signals from TV, select correct input in soundbar to get TV sound.

Please reply back with the result

Tv speaker is touned off but the sound select is still grey Will not let me choose that option
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK, Sound Select option will enable when you have PIP (picture in picture) function On and then you can select sound of either main/ big picture sound or sub/small picture sound. It is not related to connecting a soundbar/ external speakers with the TV.

pip is grayed
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK, please make sure Energy Saving mode is Off in same menu.

Also, antenna is plugged into TV which is main picture source and any video source is plugged in video/ HDMI input of TV and providing picture to get sub/small picture, this will enable PIP feature in TV.
