I have no idea, how do I check? Also, I just purchased a Samsung sound bar - HW-J355. I'm hoping it will be easier to get my Samsung tv remote to operate this sound bar.

Sorry for the delay this can usually be checked in the menu of the TV under Support > Contact Samsung. Can you confirm it is currently updating to version 2004?

Downloading the update again. Don't know why it didn't install the first time.

With the TV updated, can you go through the Universal Remote setup for the sound bar once more and tell me if you are now able to control the sound bar with the TV remote? ^Cole

It is not a universal remote. It the remote that came with my Samsung tv. I want to control my Samsung sound bar with it so I only have to use one remote. I need help setting it up.
