answer 1
2.1 means that the system has 2 regular speakers (presumably a left and right channel) and 1 subwoofer. Optical means you can use a fiber optical "digital in" wire for sound. This is a better choice for sound. Audio means you can use your standard RCA cables for sound.

answer 2
2.1 means the # of speakers. 2 main speakers, one Left and one Right, and .1 means 1 Sub Woofer for the bass

Optical 1 means it has 1 Optical input on the back to hook it up. Optical is a type of cable you can buy to use that uses fiber optics for the best sound quality you can get.

D Audio 1 means it also has 1 (Digital Audio) input you could use to connect for sound with a special D Audio cable. Just another option.

Either option will work but the Optical Cable is better.

2.1 audio means that you have stereo sound - left and right channels - along with the ".1" being the subwoofer.

Optical means that audio can travel through an optical cable, which is a new option for many televisions on the market today.

I just ran a optical wire from my Samsung tv to the soundbar. If you use the optical wire make sure the unit reads "digital in"

Just use the Optical wire from the soundbar to the Optical on the back of the TV.
Then you select "D-In" (means digital input) on the soundbar.
Then you have to go to the sound setting on your tv and change the speaker output from TV Speaker to External Speakers. Whatever is on the TV will now come through. The other wires are useless. Take them out they will just confuse you. The whole point of this device is to minimize wires. It should have 1 wire to the wall for power, 1 wire to the subwoofer and 1 wire to the TV.

The USB is an option so you can plug you Iphone or Ipod into it to play music. Useless in my opinion because this unit has "Bluetooth" which makes it connect and play your music wirelessly. The RCA cable is to hook up your obsolete VCR or DVD player. Useless... We have Netflix,Hulu,Amazon and Vudu now to stream movies on these TV's

Without more details, it's difficult to pinpoint what the problem is.

However, with many televisions, there is an "External Speakers" setting in the audio menu that some people forget about. Check your audio settings to make sure the TV is sending the audio through the digital optical port, or the analog audio out.

Rick,

The HW-FM35 has an analog 3.5mm Aux-In, and a digital optical input.

Most televisions will have a digital optical output.

The remote signal will not pass through the optical cable from the TV to the Audio Bar, and the audo signal with an optical cable won't allow for volume. (Analog would allow for volume increase or decrease, but digital optical does not allow for volume change, and relies on the attached device for that). So the Audio Bar's remote control would be the main volume controller.

The best way to control the volume of your Audio Bar is to see if your remote has a code to control the Audio Bar or Samsung Audio Products. Unfortunately, we can't determine if certain boxes will have all of the codes for a particular model, so you would have to ask Dish if your box supports Samsung audio devices.

Dish would also be able to assist you in setting that up.

If that isn't possible with your Dish box or remote and you want a "one remote solution" for controlling all of your devices, you might consider a universal remote control - like the Logitech Harmony models - that will support multiple models from multiple manufacturers.

Thanks for your support of Samsung products.

stix56,

Yes, this will work on any television provided you have either an analog output (RCA or 3.5mm will do), or an optical audio output for audio on the back of the television.

Bill,

Audio bars will amplify the audio much better than the speakers that come with most flat panel televisions. While we can't speak to recorded audio from different sources, it will amplify any of the audio signals that is sent to it.
