Hi,

 

PLEASE HELP!!! Smiley LOL

 

I need suggestions on which Sound Bars will actually work with the Fios Remote.

 

I bought a Samsung HW-F550 and it sounded great, but I could not get it to pair with either of my FIOS Remotes (I have the two button and four button remotes).

 

I just bought a Sony HT-CT260 and it also will not pair with the remote. I've tried all the options. I'll probably return it tomorrow.

 

I could buy a Logitech Harmony Remote, but I want to use the orignial FIOS remote. I like the way it controls the DVR and FIOS options.

 

Please help! Are there actually any good Sound Bars that are compatible with the FIOS remote!

Hard to say if any at all will work with the fios remote. The codes built into the remote are so out dated the only way it will work is if the sound bar can pair up with those old codes and the chances of that happening are rare. I havent heard of any that work with the remote yet. A Harmony remote is far better anyways and thats the way I went.

Change your remote, not your sound bar.  Logitech Harmony remotes are great.  Get one and enjoy.

 

Have a great day!
