  1. I bought the Bar 40 soundbar recently and connected it to the TV via optical cable and have not been able to get any sound. I've tried all options including turning off the internal speakers on the TV and plugging into other components with optical ports and still nothing. I've tried the cable on my other sound system and its fine. So I updated the firmware as per the Klipsch Youtube video that is linked on the Klipsch offical site. Summary of video: Download firmware from site. Extract `system` folder onto blank USB. Unplug power to Bar 40. Plug in USB. Plug in power. Cycle Source until Source LED is blank. Wait until all LED turns off and starts to blink. Unplug power to Bar and remove USB. Plug power back. Multiple problems arise: 1. Klipsch remote control stopped working. I've tried new batteries but the Bar 40 does not respond to the remote control. 2. Bluetooth audio stopped working Bluetooth used to play media from the phones I connected to but the speaker does not play sound anymore. The source blue LED will be solid (meaning connected) but no sound comes through even when the volume is maxed on both device and speaker. 3. Optical still does not work. Still not audio coming from TV after firmware update. Tried turning off the speakers through TV settings, switched the digital audio format to both PCM and Digital, neither worked. Additional information: When I switch the source to optical, red LED will be solid for a second or 2 and then blink. This happens to the rest of the sources as well. (makes sense with bluetooth but not for optical)
  2. I just received a new Bar 48 and I need to use the optical connection, not having an HDMI ARC port on my tv. I cannot get any sound out of the bar through this connection. I paired it to my iPhone and I can play music just fine. I have attempted a firmware update but it will not work the way the instructions indicate. Any help would be appreciated. I have opened a ticket with support, FYI. Have not heard anything back yet. Very disappointed in the response from customer service. I use the optical connection out of my Panasonic plasma to my surround system and it works fine. I have also tried the HDMI out of my Directv receiver and got nothing there as well. Bad ports maybe?
  3. hello, is it possible to control the sound of the speakers connected to the TV via optical cable using the magic remote control? I'd like to check the volume and also the power on and off. Thanks for your help!
  4. I have 2 cables from Monoprice for sale, the first one is a Optical cable, the second is a DVI-D to HDMI. Both are CL2 rated and are 25' in length. I had these hooked up from the computer to the receiver, so I could play my stored movies. Now that I have my PS3 wired to the router, plus I use PLEX media server I don't need these, actually by the time Installed these I learned about PLEX, and never really needed these. Anyways, they barely got used, they are located here in Omaha, NE. Asking 15.00 local pick up, or 20.00 shipped to lower 48 via USPS, and thats for the both of them. Thanks
