Autoconnect to tv

I have the soundbar 700 and I am wondering if there is a way for the soundbar to stay connected to the tv or auto connect when the tv is turned on. 

I have to press the button on the remote for it to sync to the tv and am looking for a way to avoid that as I use Alexa to turn on the tv.

Re: Autoconnect to tv

Assuming it is using the HDMI with a compatible TV it should automatically turn on when the TV powers.

 

Two things to check are the HDMI-CEC settings on the Soundbar and the TV should both be set to ON.  The Bose one should be on as standard, but some TVs may not be.

 

If it's an older TV without HDMI-CEC, then you may be better using the optical cable.

 

If you're connecting by BT, then no.
