keith, you were asking how to do a manual set up ? Couple of questions from me first off. Have you got the instructions manual ? I have it as a PDF file on my phone so I can read it and try to decipher it when I have a spare five nins ! And have you got the av cable plugged into your tv so you can see the on screen directions when doing the setting up ?
The manual set up is found within the set up menu. Scrole down until you find manual set up. First thig it asks you to set up is the room peramiters. Wall or corner ? Then set the sizes. Next up is the beam angle, beam lengths and finally the focal point. Personally, I skip tis section until I've set up the image location which is next in the list. I do this first as doing the beam angles before this gives a poor result. Once your happy with the image location do the beam angles for each speaker, you should be able to move each speaker tone to where you want it. For the beam lengths, do a rough measurement on where the sound comes from the bar, bounces off the wall and crosses over your seating position. Last thing to mess with, ( I still mess with this setting myself) is the focal points. This adjusts how far in front or behind you the sound beams pass. Once you've set it up, don't forget to save your settings, ( setup, memory, save123 ?)
Have you had a play with the different sound outputs . ie, sterio 3beam or 5beam out. Then of course 5.1 or 7.1 ? I find 7.1 too busy so I stick with 5.1.
I hope this kind of helps. im not normally an instructions reading kind of guy, but without it this soundbar isnt much good. Once set up correctly tho, this bar really does deliver.
