Although I assume that if you have two units you can interchange the sub-woofers, you would still need to pair the woofer to the appropriate soundbar (the soundbar you want to use). Each time you want to use the soundbar, you would need to pair the woofer with it if it hasn't already been paired though.

Since the HT-WS1R is a soundbar, there are no additional speakers to add to the unit. That said, although the subwoofer can wirelessly connect to the soundbar, the main unit (the bar it self) can not wirelessly connect to your TV nor can additional speakers be connected to the unit.

Great question. Since the SoundBar offers 2 different audio inputs, you should be able to connect one of your TV's audio outputs into the SoundBar and one of the DVD player's audio outputs to the soundbar as well. However, it would be much easier to connect your DVD player completely to the TV (audio/video). Doing so will allow you to then pass the DVD player's audio that is connected to the TV, out to the soundbar. This will allow you to listen to any audio content that is being transmitted to the TV from the soundbar.

From the info I have, the HT-WS1R's rated output power is at : Main unit 80W/CH, 4Ω, THD = 10%, 1kHz; Subwoofer 100W, 3Ω, THD = 10%, 120Hz.

I’m sorry you are having an issue with your device. Although with the information you have provided I do not have a solution for you; I will say that if you contact your local Best Buy's Geek Squad, they should be able to provide you with a live solution.

Question

hooking the sound bar up

Can I hook the soundbar up to my Samsung Blu-Ray player? If I do that, will I be able to use the soundbar for just my TV? I know the soundbar is powered by an electric cord, but how does it work: with a receiver? independently? do I need to buy extra cords to hook it up?

Good question. The soundbar offers two different audio inputs (one optical, one 3.5mm analogue). That said you can effectively connect both your BD player and your TV to the unit. However, I would suggest that you just connect your BD player to your TV, then connect your TV to the soundbar via an optical cable, allowing you to listen to both your BD and TV programing through one cable. Side note** most TV come with an audio passthrough output that allows you to connect multiple devices to the TV's inputs (audio/video), then pass the audio to an external receiver via optical or RCA connections.

Question

Why can't I get it to work with my DTV box and VCR?

I've hooked up the sound system through my Direct TV DVR box and it works just fine. However, when I try to play a movie in my DVD player, the sound system doesn't work. What is really annoying is that the TV sound continues to play through the soundbar while the movie sound plays through the TV. Can you help?

Although with the information you have provided I do not have a solution for you (the model TV was not given including what connections are being used to connect all of your devices together, therefore I can not effectively troubleshoot this issue); I will say that if you contact your local Best Buy's Geek Squad, they should be able to provide you with a live solution.

Question

Analog hook up

I purchased this product and when we got home our tv does not have the digital hook up so we need to do the analog way. Can you tell me what wire will work. The plug in the back of the sound bar is not for a reg cord. Do I need? Will a Y splitter work to solve this issue? Thanks

To connect an analogue audio-in connection on the HT-WS1R, you will want to use a 3.5mm male connector to RCA (red,white) cable. Connect the RCA jacks to the TV and then the 3.5mm jack into the sound bar.

I'm sorry you are having an issue with your device. From the info I have, the sound codec that is used is actually determined by the device you have connected to the soundbar and not the soundbar it self (through the optical input). Also, although I'm not to sure about what codec comes out from the Samsung TVs, I do know that the Samsung TVs will only transmit audio at 2.1 out of the optical connection (this is due to copyright laws). If you are still having an issue with your devices, please contact your local Best Buy's Geek Squad or 800-SAMSUNG for further assistance.
