The best would be the OUTPUT from your TV. That would be the best because then whatever you watch on TV would be enhanced by the soundbar. If you hook up the soundbar to your DVD or cable, then the soundbar would only work when watching which it is hooked up to (not both).

If your TV has an audio output and more than one input you can connect the cable box and the dvd player to the tv, then connect the tv to the soundbar. This way you'll have a free input to connect something like an mp3 player. If you only have one input on your tv, I'd suggest connecting the cable box to it and connecting the dvd player directly to the soundbar. This way you can play cd's without turning the tv on.

Yes it does. When operating the soundbar remote - it's important to know that you need to press the "power" button on the soundbar remote TWICE in order for the soundbar to work.

We turn off our television with our Direct TV remote. We leave the soundbar "on" after we turn off the TV.

When we turn the TV on with our Direct TV remote, we then have to press the "power" button on the soundbar remote ONE TIME.

The key is to look at the lights on the right side of the sound bar. When there are 7 or so white lights lit up on the sound bar - I think that means the sound bar is TURNED ON. When you press the power on the soundbar remote ANOTHER TIME - the 7 or so white lights should be replaced with 3 or so white lights and maybe 2 blue lights - that indicates that the sound is working on the soundbar.

Hope this helps.

The only included audio cable was composite (red/white) cable with one end being a right angle style plug which would allow the sound bar to be wall mounted, otherwise the cord would stick out of the back too far.

This will work work on ANY TV;

Easiest setup is using the supplied cable from the fix/var line out to the speaker input.
Or use the digital input but you need to buy the cable which is about $10 online

TSHD is TruSurroundHD and that is the setting I use, but try each one to see which you like best. TVOL means TruVolume. I didn't like it as well as TSHD. I don't see any reason to use both at the same time.

Yes, both settings can be on at the same time. TVOL seems to add only more volume and the TSHD seems to add a surround type sound. I have them both on. Just try either, both or none of the settings to see which one you like.

answer 6
These two functions do two different things. the TVOL (TruVolume) will give you a balanced even sound when switching between commercial and program as many commercials have a higher volume. the TSHD (TruSurround HD) will give you a more high definition surround sound feel with the sound bar. So you can have both on at the same time to perform their functions simultaneously.

If you connect the speaker to your TV using an optical audio cable, whatever devices sending sound to your TV will come out of the speaker. I have streaming Netflix through my Wii, DirecTV and a DVD player and all come out of the speaker.
