Setup/factory reset/ANYTHING without remote? - Soundbar 700
Hi, all. I've been Googling like crazy to no avail.
I have a Soundbar 700 I was really excited to get to use - I even took the wall mount plates and attached them to a soundbar mount on my TV, so when I swivel the TV, it moves with it. How exciting!
Unfortunately, when I plugged in my Soundbar 700 to my TV (Samsung KS8000), it did NOT by default go into pairing mode (amber light, I think?) and the HDMI4 (ARC) only lists it as 'Receiver' not Bose or Soundbar 700 or anything.
Fortunately, the screen did show the Bose Music app logo, so I know the speaker is at least trying to communicate with my TV. The Bose Music app doesn't find the speaker, not on my phone, not on my fiancee's phone. I keep seeing that I need the remote in order to factory reset, put it in pairing mode, anything.
Is it possible to do any of that using the service port on the back of the speaker? I don't have the remote and am quite disappointed that I may need to order one just to set the speaker up (I plan on continuing to use my Samsung remote - I've heard it's more reliable than the Bose one when working with Samsung TVs).
Can anyone help? As of now, I have a beautiful soundbar on a beautiful TV and I'm still using my dinky TV speakers. 😥
