This is excatly what we desire but unfortunately the rear volume is still 20% of the sound soundbar is providing - with R1 on max and soundbar on lowest level.
Tried to group them in both multiroom app and on my KS7000 TV, reset the bar and establish connection again, problem persist.
However, when I'm not connected to the TV and listening to the sample music through the Multiroom APP it's working flawless. I can individually adjust the volume on all three devices (soundbar + R1) using my phone and use the soundbar/TV remote for "global" volume adjustment - how it should be.
Just to clarify the volume control screen shots you have supplied for the application are nothing new........ This has been available since application was available
Good point Robbienobs... They're explaining it to us as if we weren't already inimately familer with these screens. I've seen and used those screens litarally 100 times over the past 8 months.
Nope have always been there through each update........ Same on the tv
Not sure if the reply was ment for me, but in the app (not Group settings), I'm able to adjust the volume perfectly and the soundbar/r1 ratio is just perfect. I even had to turn the R1's abit lower than the soundbar.
Tovle... Looks like you may be playing audio from your phone? The issues happen while using the system as a 5.1 setup from the TV/Soundbar. My understanding is the sound works fine when just playing audio through the app.
Also, from your screenshot it looks like you just have a standard speaker group set and not a Suround sound group.
Just clarifying that the volume screen shots displayed by Samsung are nothing new.
The issue relates to rear speakers when connected in surround mode for 5.1 viewing, not when simply grouped for playback of music etc
