Evening all,

Need some help in finding out what's going on with this soundbar.

This is the 2nd one I've owned due to the last one having a fault.

What happens is when I switch the TV off the soundbar switches off as well, as it should being connected via HDMI ARC. However, a few moments later the soundbar will switch itself on and this was happening with the previous SB20 I had.

Any ideas as to why this could be happening?

I've noticed it coming on during the night when trying to go to sleep, so turn it back off with the SB20 remote. And sometimes seconds later it will switch back on by itself.

Theres very limited settings available on the soundbar so I thought it may have something to do with the Samsung TV? Possibly the CEC setting.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Then it could be the remote sending the command more than once, I am not familiar with your soundbar but I am very familiar with the workings of HDMI CEC .

Does the remote for your Samsung TV switch the soundbar on and off with the same results ?

Yep, so if I switch the soundbar off using it's own remote it switches on back by itself too.

Harmon replied back to my query and said to try a factory reset on the soundbar. Shall give it a go and see.

Factory reset didn't work either - at a loss as to what could be causing this. Must have something to do with settings as it's happened on 2 of these soundbars.
