LG OLED C2 42 Inch and SJ2 Soundbar/Optical Issue


Novice Member
Hi All,

I have the LG 42 inch C2 and for some reason when i connect my SJ2 sound bar via Optical i am unable to adjust the volume using the TV remote. If you use the specific sound bar remote i am able to but it would much rather use the TV remote.

Has anyone else experienced this? I have an LG OLED C8 in the other room that connects via optical and the volume adjusts fine using the tv remote.

If i connect via bluetooth it also works from the tv remote.

I should also mention that if I use the TV remote while the optical is active the volume bar moves but the volume does not adjust with it

The SJ2 soundbar also has LG sound Sync so should be compatable.
