  1. @JerkyTruck Have a look at this thread: Cinema 600 Sound Bar Thread If you are using an HDMI cable, you must connect it to a device that supports HDMI-ARC otherwise it will not work. The Cinema 600 spec sheet leaves much to be desired. It says that Dolby Digital is supported but makes no mention of PCM which we know does work.
  2. The Cinema 600 Sound Bar Thread has a lot of helpful information and a good place to ask questions about that product. You can find additional information about some of the Cinema 600 features here.

    The Cinema 600 Sound Bar Thread has a lot of helpful information and a good place to ask questions about that product. You can find additional information about some of the Cinema 600 features here. I recommend you do as RandyH000 suggested and open a case with Klipsch Tech Support.
  4. I suggest you open a case with Klipsch Tech Support. They are the ones most likely to know what might be happening,
  5. The Cinema 600 Sound Bar Thread has a lot of helpful information and a good place to ask questions about that product. You can find additional information about some of the Cinema 600 features here. I would suggest you also open a case with Klipsch Tech Support.
  6. I don't what might be happening based on the information you have provided. You can try opening a ticket with Klipsch tech support. The Cinema 600 Sound Bar Thread has a lot of helpful information and a good place to ask questions about that product.
  7. The technical information Klipsch has provided on the Cinema 600 (and its predecessor the BAR 48) is severely lacking. You may contact Tech Support and ask but when I tried that last year and asked what Bluetooth profiles were supported I was simply told that that information had not been published. 😞
  8. Please see this post for additional information. HDMI-ARC is the preferred connection. If your TV supports ARC, have you tried it? Klipsch has never provided details about how surround sound is supposed to work. On my Cinema 600 and my previous BAR 48 I would never get any sound from my Surround 3 speakers unless the ((SUR)) indicator was on. It is quite possible when listening to a Dolby Digital source that there is just no content in the rear channels. Try this: Use HDMI-ARC, if possible, otherwise use Digital. On the TV, enable Dolby Digital (not Dolby Digital Plus, even if it is available) Verify that the Dolby Digital indicator on the soundbar is illuminated. That will confirm that the TV is providing a valid Dolby Digital encoded output and that your soundbar recognizes it. If the Dolby Digital indicator on the soundbar is not illuminated try to connect the soundbar to a different device. Next... Make sure the ((SUR)) indicator on the soundbar is illuminated and that the Surround 3 speaker volume is set to an appropriate level.. Select a multimedia source that you know provides Dolby Digital encoded output (Netflix?) Select a video that uses Dolby Digital 5.1. What now works or doesn't work?
  9. I experienced the same issue or perhaps a similar one. My Cinema 600 is connected to my TV via HDMI-ARC. On one occasion, even though the soundbar was turned on and the TV input was selected, the TV could not see the soundbar and I could only get sound from the TV speakers. The only way I could resolve the issue was: Disconnect the HDMI cable. Remove power from the soundbar for about a minute. Reconnect power to the soundbar. Reconnect the HDMI-ARC. Even if this only happened once it is an issue. I need to report it to Klipsch tech support. It is the only way to get the issue resolved and improve the product.
  10. The subwoofer connects to the soundbar via Wi-Fi, not Bluetooth. If it is near a Wi-Fi device, interference from the device may impact the subwoofer's ability to connect to the soundbar. To effect a connection you have to press the button on the subwoofer and the one on the soundbar near where to power cord is attached.
  11. Please see my comments in this post.
  12. If you don't have the optional Surround 3 speakers connected, the ((SUR)) button will engage the virtual surround feature. If the soundbar is turned off, the virtual surround will be reset and will have to be engaged again when you want it.
  13. The sub has to connect with the soundbar. It does not use Bluetooth; it is a Wi-Fi connection. Read the user manual. There is a paring button on the subwoofer and one on the soundbar where the power cord connects. You need to press both buttons to make the subwoofer connect.
  14. I would suggest you open a case with Klipsch tech support. If there is a workaround, they would know.
