Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
I have the above mentioned sound bar. I have been unable to get my uverse remote to work with the sound bar. I have tried all the codes listed on the manual to no such luck.
Does anybody know of a specific code that works? I would hate to spend more money on a different remote.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I, too, am looking for an answer. I have tried all the codes I have been able to find online to no avail. Using the search method does not work either (after 400+ button presses).
I have programmed my remote to control the volume with the auxiliary, but none of the codes I can find work for this soundbar! I REALLY hate having to use more than one remote on a daily basis!
Hope that I am not too late for some here, but for anyone else that does not feel like buying a new remote control I found that you can indeed control the volume to the Samsung HW-E450 via the supplied U-Verse remote control. It is kind of a hack solution, but it works.
I have the U-Verse cable signal sent to the TV via HDMI and the TV sound going out to the Samsung HW-E450 via Optical Cable.
Turn the volume of your TV speakers down to 0.
Set your Samsung HW-E450 to power on / off when it receives a digital signal. Do this by pushing the Auto Power button on your Samsung HW-E450 remote control. A message will display on the soundbar letting you know wether this feature is on or off. Your soundbar will now power on when the TV is turned on. Remember this is only when your Samsung HW-E450 is connected to via the Optical Input, not HDMI. The Samsung HW-E450 will shut itself off after a short time of not receiving any digital signals.
The AT&T U-Verse cable box can control the volume output on it's own. But the TV codes control the volume buttons on the remote control. That needs to be changed.
Assign the volume controls to the AT&T U-Verse cable box. You do this by pressing (and hold) the AT&T button and the "OK" button simultaneously for a second or two . The top lights will flash twice. Enter in the code "955" on the keypad and then the AT&T button again. The AT&T button light will flash twice to confirm. Press the AT&T button one more time. The AT&T button will do one long flash to confirm the command.
Use your Samsung HW-E450 remote set the sound bar's volume at a decent listening level (use volume level in the soundbar's display, I used 20 myself).
You should now be able control the volume from the AT&T U-Verse remote. Volume up / down / mute are all done by the U-Verse box and not the sound bar. There will be an on screen display to give up a visual indictor of the volume level.
It might not help anyone that has already had this issue but it might help someone that Googles for solutions like I was this week.
