I have just posted this on another thread. ALl sounds great but...  I have just purchased a QE55Q90RATXXU and have a HWF551 Soundbar. Has always worked fine. With my previous Samsumg TV (2013) it paired as Soundshare and worked brilliantly - never had to use the soundbar remote. Soundshare no longer seems an option (which seems a retrograde step) so I thought I would just connect via BT. But the TV can't see the soundbar. The TV will pair easily with my Skull candy headphones and my mobile will pair easily with my soundbar so both BT connections seem to be fine, but the TV just wont see it. Very frustrating and has left me disappointed with my new expensive TV!  Help?!
