I am very familiar with Dolby.

"Dynamic Range Control" is what LG call Dolby. They need to change it to "Dolby".

Thanks

The Dolby DRC (Dynamic Range Control) is a feature designed to make sound clear, even when the volume is reduced to a lower setting. This unit does not have audio presets, such as those mentioned.

We appreciate your interest in this television and Sound Bar. The Sound Bar will only receive a signal using an Optical Digital Audio cable. Your television does not have any means of sending an audio signal to any form of external speaker systems. The only option would have to be receiving the signal from a BluRay player or Cable/Satellite Receiver box.

Question

Clock? Volume Control? Sync?

Purchased this to go with my new LG Plasma and although it clearly shows a clock in the front grill, I can not get it to light up. I only see a small red LED.

Also, it is impossible to sync the soundbar audio with the tv audio (always echo's) so I had to disable the TV speakers. Is there any way to have the LG TV remote control the volume on the sound bar and not the other way around?

Unfortunately you can only control the volume of the sound of the soundbar with the soundbar remote. You can use the soundbar remote to change channels on your LG TV and control the TV volume. I recommend downloading the manual they have here for further info.

We appreciate your interest in this Sound Bar and its compatibilities. We cannot offer any information about the capabilities of your Comcast Remote Control, as we did not manufacture it. We can only advise about the Sound Bar and other LG devices.

I apologize, but no; this will not be a possible feature. The television remote control is designed to control certain other devices that might be connected using one of the HDMI ports. As the Sound Bar can only connect using the OPTICAL Digital Audio connection, it will not be possible to control it with these functions.

Question

How can I get my NB0202A soundbar to work?

This soundbar is discontinued and was bought on clearance, so I don't have a manual. It worked at first, but now I can get no sound. Everything is hooked up just as it was when it worked. I don't understand which button does what on the remote, but I've tried them all. Is there a button-pushing combination I haven't tried? I'll attach a photo of an identical remote.
