The iLive Sound Bar plays FM and digital radio or the audio and video output from a docked Apple iPhone or iPod through its own integrated 2.1 channel speaker system. You can also connect the iLive Sound Bar to a Samsung TV set or home theatre system with an RCA composite (red, yellow, white) cable to channel the audio and video to the connected device. After connecting the iLive to the Samsung TV set, enjoy watching videos and listening to the music stored on your Apple device through the TV's large screen and high-quality speakers.

  1. 1

    Place the iLive Sound Bar on a firm and flat surface near the Samsung TV set, such as a shelf on the TV stand unit. Plug the red, white and yellow connectors on one end of the composite cable into the corresponding colour-coded sockets on the rear or side panel of the Samsung TV set. Push the connectors into the sockets firmly until they click into place.

  2. 2

    Plug the red, white and yellow connectors on the other end of the composite cable into the corresponding ports on the back panel of the iLive Sound Bar. Push the power button on the iLive's front control panel to switch on the device.

  3. 3

    Place your iPod or iPhone in the dock on the top of the iLive Sound Bar. Find and play a music track or video clip on the Apple device in the usual way, through the apps on the touch screen or with the click-wheel control on older iPod models.

  4. 4

    Power on the Samsung TV set. Keep pressing the "Source" button on the Samsung remote control until you can view or hear the video or music from the iPod or other Apple device docked in the iLive Sound Bar.

Tips and warnings

  • You can play any media content through an Apple device docked in an iLive Sound Bar connected to your Samsung TV set, including TV programmes and full-length feature films purchased and downloaded from iTunes.
