Auto Volume & Mode Features with External Speaker
by jo17strom - 12/24/09 3:04 PM
I have an LN40A5550. It sits in a cabinet so that makes it difficult to use the internal speaker (the internal speakers point down and towards the back of the cabinet so there's an echo/reverberation effect from the cabinet). To get around that, I am currently using a Boston Accoustics external sound bar that points outward. The external sound bar is connected to the TV via an audio cable from the audio out jacks on the set to the external sound bar. We have decreased the volume of the internal speaker so we only hear sound fro the sound bar.
What I'm wondering is if the Auto Volume, Mode, and Equalizer features that are settable in the TV Menu work with the external sound bar ? Conversely, if I use an external sound bar only, do I lose these features ?
Thanks in advance for your comments
