Wired Ethernet Connection
A hard-wired Ethernet connection can provide a faster transfer rate
than a wireless connection. While Polk Omni Collection products
do not have a dedicated Ethernet port, they do have a USB Port.
Using an Ethernet adapter for a USB cable, you can connect your
products directly to your router.
Connecting the Subwoofer
The SB1 Sound Bar and wireless subwoofer are preset at the factory
to work together. As such, the SB1 subwoofer automatically receives
the wireless signal from the bar. All you need to do is make sure the
subwoofer is plugged in and the main power switched to ON.
Note: If the wireless subwoofer stops receiving an audio signal,
follow these instructions to re-establish the connection:
1. Turn off the subwoofer's AC Mains switch.
2. Press and hold the SYNC button on the back of the bar
for three seconds.
3. The LED on the back of the bar will blink, indicating that the
bar and the subwoofer are ready to be connected.
4. Turn on the subwoofer's AC Mains switch. When the subwoofer
LED turns solid green, the bar and subwoofer are connected
and ready to use.

Working with NAS Drives, PCs, and Mac Devices
The Polk Omni App is capable of recognizing any Media Server
or NAS drive that is broadcasting over your home network and
that's configured for open access using the DLNA protocol. Using
the DTS Play-Fi Windows app, the Polk Omni Collection products
will play any file capable of being played by the Windows operating
system, including all music services. See "Downloading the DTS
Play-Fi PC App" above to learn more.
Because OSX devices don't support DLNA, a third party software
(ex. Twonky, Plex or Servio) must be downloaded for them to be
visible to the network. Once downloaded, all locally stored content
on OSX-based devices will show up within the Polk Omni App
under "Media Server."
