1. Can I control the sound with my tv or dish remote
No, you will need to use the soundbar remote
2. Does this unit automatically go to sleep after inactivity like the previous version? Returning previous version due to that issue!
I have it connected via aux on PC and do not have auto shutoff issue.
3. I only get static from the optical port. Am I doing something wrong?
You need to go to setup on your television. Then select Audio. Then for Digital Audio Out select PCM. I had the same problem. This solved it.
4. Can this be hooked up from digital audio out on tv to aux on the soundbar
Yes, this is how I hooked up the one I purchased. It took a couple of tries to get the tv to recognize that it needed to send the audio out through the speaker however. I would suggest plugging the cable in to the speaker first and then in to the tv. Our tv didn’t recognize it when I plugged the cable in to the tv first and then to the speaker. Good luck! I will say the sound quality is good for the price, but the speaker is definitely only maybe half as loud as the tv speakers in our case. The difference for us is that our tv speakers are on the back. In movie mode, we can hear the voices better through the sound bar than the tv regardless of the audio mode on the tv.
5. Could i just use ghe soundbar without a tv for like a room or office?
Yes, you could connect the sound bar to your phone via Bluetooth connection.
6. Is this model better than the 25 inch taotronics one?
Most people agree bigger is better.
