Do I have to switch from HDMI source to optical every time I play usb connected devices on tv

Asked by: Hojas
If your TV has HDMI ARC then you might not have to switch connections when playing via USB. However some TV applications and/or connections, in this case USB, may not be compatible with HDMI. If this is true for your TV model, then optical switching is necessary.

What portable speakers is this sound bar compatible with? I bought a Pulse 2 that has connect and they don't play any source together. Not even Bluetooth audio works. Please specify what speakers are compatible this model and what capabilities its has.

Asked by: PradoAlex
The SB 450 supports the JBL Connect feature but only to stream audio via Bluetooth from a source device. To enable the JBL Connect feature, ensure that the SB450 is connected to the Bluetooth source first, then press the Connect button on both JBL speakers, so they join each other in playing. Please refer to the list below for all the JBL Speakers that has JBL Connect feature. • JBL FLIP 3 • JBL CHARGE 3 • JBL PULSE 2 • JBL XTREME • JBL BOOST TV

My soundbar is not playing the first 1-2 seconds of audio from a source. When starting movies/videos the audio does not start until 1-2 seconds after the video, but is in sync. Also, when using devices that have menu click sounds, these are not heard.

Asked by: cxray
This can be caused by the formatting that your source device is using and the TV can accept and output. If your source device (Bluray, gaming console, DVD..) is set to output Dolby Digital/DTS, and your TV can only output two-channel digital signal (PCM) when connected via HDMI-ARC, this requires the TV to process the signal before it sends it to the SB450. This takes enough time to cause such delay. Try to use an optical cable from the TV to the SB450 if you are using HDMI or to set your source device to send PCM signals only to the TV. This should fix your issue.

If there is no separate "center" channel speaker, where does the dialogue and center sound go? Wouldn't it sound better with a dedicated center speaker? Also, it doesn't appear to have Dolby TrueHD, DTS, etc. decoding? Thank you.

Asked by: jay271234
The SB 450 is a 2.1 speaker system that has 4 woofers and 2 tweeters on each channel. Since this is a stereo speaker, the SB450 does not have a center channel nor is it capable of being a 5.1 sound system. To compensate, SB450 can create a virtual surround sound effect using its left and right channels. The SB450 does have Dolby audio, but does not support Dolby TrueHD nor DTS.

The only way I get sound is thru the digital optical cable. If I use any HDM port we get no sound no matter what input I switch it to. What's up

How to turn off volume being displayed on my tv

Asked by: makoc
The HDMI connection has the semi-OSD feature (volume overlays, etc.). To turn off the volume display, please switch connection from HDMI to optical so it will not process video.

Hello, I have the Cinema SB 450 and the audio and video are out of sync. How can I fix this? Thanks

Asked by: mahvelus
I am so sorry if you are having issues with SB 450. Let us try to do this following troubleshooting steps: - Check to see if it happens with all source devices (TV, BluRay, DVD, etc.). If it only happens with one device and not the other, the issue may be with that device. - Make sure you do not have any HDMI adapters or splitters. These can cause issues with video and audio. - Please also check your TV A/V sync settings as well. If this doesn't help, please submit a case request at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

I have NO audio feedback to indicate Harman Volume is On/Off. According to the owner's manual(p.9), there should be audible indication for it. I tried reseting SB450, but it didn't solve the problem. Is my SB450 broken?
