Question

Is there a converter for the optical input to digital audio output?

I have an Insignia LED LCD that does not have an optical output. It only has a digital audio out or the traditional audio L/R out. I purchased the LSB316 without realizing it only had optical inputs on it. Is there a solution you can provide for me. I would hate to have to return this sidebar. The quality is great when I have it paired with my iPhone.

Question

Sound cuts out?

I've noticed that on some channels that the sound will cut out for 1 second, and the display changes from Optical 1 to show "DD 2/0.0".
I'm thinking this has something to do with the audio quality of the station (I'm no expert), but I dont think it should cut out completely.
Any thoughts? Suggestions?

See earlier post on this forum covering same sound cut out. LG tech is saying that it is antenna signal strength related. They may be right.

If this change is happening due to the quality of the station, regrettably there will be no way that we can assist in such a case. You might consider an amplified antenna, to hopefully bring in a stronger signal. If this does not work, then the receiver in the system may require service. It would therefore be recommended to contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 in order to make service arrangements or contacts.

We appreciate your interest in this Sound Bar system. Since this Subwoofer connects via Bluetooth, a line-of-sight connection is not as critical a consideration. The subwoofer should be located at about an equal distance from the viewing location as the Sound Bar itself. It is for this reason that it is typically suggested to place the subwoofer next to the television, near the main portion of the system.

All codes to be used will be located in the setup instructions for the Universal Remote Control. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies.

It may not be possible for this soundbar to utilize an iPod. Such a device typically requires additional software for compatibility, which cannot be added to this unit. It can only use an MP3 player that does not require compatibility software.

The sound bar connects to the television using an Optical Digital Audio cable. It should play back any audio that is running into the television. How much range of that audio, including the subwoofer depends upon the audio format being received to the television.

This Sound Bar does have the capability of receiving audio information from Bluetooth devices. Instructions for pairing of these devices can be located on pages 18-20 of your owner’s manual. A copy of the manual can be found on the SUPPORT tab on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/home-theater-systems/LG-home-theater-system-LSB316.jsp.

This system has a number of pre-set surround sound fields. You can select a desired sound mode by using SOUND EFFECT. The BASS and LOUDNESS options may help best in working with bass and treble levels.

Question

Bluetooth pairing via Windows 7 PC not working

I cannot successfully pair my LG LSB316 Soundbar to a Windows 7 PC. The soundbar shows as a discoverable device on my PC with its available services, and it will show as being paired on the PC side when pairing is selected, but the display on the LG soundbar does not show as being paired with the PC, and no audio is able to be synced. There are no other devices connected to the soundbar via Bluetooth when doing this either, but I have successfully been able to pair my iPhone 4 with the soundbar via bluetooth separately.

All bluetooth drivers are up to date on the PC as well, and I have tried pairing with 2 different bluetooth USB radios on 2 different PCs. I have also followed the instructions in the manual on bluetooth pairing.

The bass of a sound system is not intended to be loud, so much as felt. It is not uncommon for a volume of a subwoofer to be more supplemental than audible. If you believe this to not be the case, then you may contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

There are rubber feet on the bottom of the unit. I found it was better to install on the wall, because my T.V. was installed on the wall. The only issue I had originally was that you could see the wires when it was on a stand.

It is recommended to have this Sound Bar mounted according to the instructions in the owner’s manual. To not do so will leave the unit vulnerable to being knocked off the platform, and being damaged in a manner that would not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
