1. What does a TV sound bar do?
Sound bar is an all-in-one loudspeaker that boosts high-quality TV sound without requiring the space, complexity and expense of a home theater receiver and surround sound speaker setup. A sound bar's long, slender cabinet usually contains two or more speakers. You can mount it above or below a television screen. For movie enthusiasts, it's the perfect upgrade to your TV's default speakers that can provide either stereo or surround sound.
2. How to control sound bar with TV remote?
There are soundbars that have multiple HDMI inputs and use ARC. However, the optical audio output of the TV is fixed so you have to use the soundbar remote to control volume. There is a remote control in the TaoTronics soundbar box, please check it.
3. Does sound bar have to be same brand as TV?
Maybe you are looking to buy a sound bar and are just wondering if the brand of your sound bar has to match the brand of your TV. In fact, what matters is what type of output(s) your TV has and what inputs the sound bar has. You should look at the outputs on your TV or check the owner's manual. Brand name doesn't matter. It is not necessary to match brands for your soundbar and TV.
4. Is it better to connect TV soundbar with HDMI or optical?
When it comes time to connect your new sound bar, two main choices are HDMI or optical. Both cables pass the digital audio from one device to another and can be pretty cheap. There is no difference when it comes to passing multi-channel audio like Dolby digital. The major difference is that HDMI cables can pass higher resolution audio which includes formats found on Blu-ray like Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master audio. Fiber optic cables won't be able to transmit these high-res sound formats. HDMI can also pass video signals if you want just a single cable between two devices. So, the simplest advice is to go with HDMI when you can.
However, you might not have the option for HDMI. Maybe you have an older receiver. Maybe you have everything connected to your TV, and you just want to get the audio out to a sound bar (and the only option is optical). In that case, optical is fine. For most setups, the sound will be just as good with optical as with HDMI.
