Soundbar 700 Remote backlight

The backlight on my Soundbar 700 remote only stays on for a few seconds before turning off - usually before I have figured out what I’m doing! Can this be set to stay on longer?

 

thanks

Hello basljh@gmail.com,

 

Thanks very much for posting. At this time the backlight timeout period is fixed and cannot be changed. We have had feedback from other users about this and have shared it with the Development team. If there are any changes to this function, we will share it with you here on the Community.

 

Best Regards,

Disappointing, the timeout is way too fast considering the characters are hidden without the backlight. This is an oversight in design, it should be customizable through the app.

Re: Soundbar 700 Remote backlight

Is there an update on this thread yet? Just purchased this and would be good to have. Also,I have a sub woofer acoustical 5 wired to my Cambridge amp and network player. Is there a way to pipe the subwoofer output from the sound bar to the acoustimass 5 sub woofer module?

Hello Spider Pig! Thanks for posting and welcome to the Community.

 

Congratulations on your new soundbar!! That feature request has gotten a lot of feedback. There is no new information regarding the backlight time except that it has been reported to development and is being evaluated. The Soundbar 700 is not compatible with the Acoustimass 5 system and is not able to output to that bass module. The Bass Module 500 or 700 are the only bass units that are compatible.

Hi Drigga,

 

Thanks for the post.

 

There's no information regarding extending the backlight length.  We will update when we hear anything.

Disappointed and annoyed. Didn’t Quality Control anticipate that this problem would not sit well with consumers?
