Bose 500 soundbar

I have a new Bose 500 soundbar that is connected via digital optical cable to my Samsung tv. Everything works and sounds great. I have it set to hit the power off button on my remote and both the tv and soundbar turn off. That works fine. Then when i power it back up, they both turn on but the soundbar doesn’t play anything until I press the button on my remote that looks like a tv. It is almost like it defaults to music or Bluetooth when it powers off and i need to put it back on the tv setting.

Re: Bose 500 soundbar

I can't answer your question, but I prefer to use my LG TV remote to control everything and have the TV turn the Bose on and off.  You might want to try that.  The only time I use my Bose remote is to turn off the Bose after I have been using it to play music from my iPhone.

Hello Gajewski13,

 

Thank you for posting and welcome to the Bose Community.

 

The Soundbar 500 should only default to the last source played when you turn it back on. 

 

Can you confirm that the last source you were using when this happened was the TV source?

 

Let us know the results.
