Connectivity issues with SoundTouch 300 and VI300
Hi, I recently bought a SoundTouch 300 soundbar with the the Virtually Invisible 300 speakers. I've had many compatability issues with which I am hoping to get help. Please see my setup below:
- TV: Samsung 65" 4K LED TV (UN65KS8000)
- SoundTouch 300 connected to HDMI 4 port
- Virtually Invisible 300 rear speakers
- Xbox One S (connected to cable box) in HDMI 1, PS4 in HDMI 2, and Nintendo Switch in HDMI 3
As many people have mentioned, the VI300 rear speakers are almost inaudible. I have them on a shelf right behind the couch, so they are at most a foot or two from one's ears, but it's really hard to hear. I've read that one can connect the speakers to the SoundTouch app, but none of my speakers connect via wifi. I've hardwired the SoundTouch 300 soundbar to my modem/router via ethernet, so I am able to control that one, but nothing for the VI300. How do I connect the VI300 speakers to the app so that I may adjust the volume? Additionally, any tips on connecting the speakers to wifi? It fails to even find my wifi network every time.
Additionally, in my Xbox settings, I am unable to select anything but "Stereo uncompressed" in the Audio Output settings. Is this setup not considered 5.1 uncompressed? I'm pretty new to the surround sound game, so I honestly don't really know.
Sorry for the rambling! I hope someone can help. Thank you!
