With the latest Bluesound BluOS software version 2.14.0, you can now create the ultimate Dolby Digital® surround sound system with a PULSE SOUNDBAR and a pair of PULSE FLEXs as rears.
I have the above described setup. But I have a few comments/questions.
1. When creating a home cinema group, the rear speakers will only be active when a Dolby Digital surround sound is streamed. Unfortunately when using the speakers for playing music, the rear speakers will not be active because they are part of the home cinema group. I should remove the group and select them in a new group for normal playing. Will an update become available to auto switch when there is no surround sound available?
2. The pulse SOUNDBAR (and pulse mini) can be controlled with the tv remote (IR learning). Unfortunately the pulse flex can not. When using the SOUNDBAR with the 2 flex in one group for tv sound, the flex must be controlled by the app, so controlling e.g. the volume, the remote can be used for the SOUNDBAR and separately the app for the flex. Will there be an update available to control the flex through the SOUNDBAR when in a group using the tv remote? This will be very convenient.
Ideal would be when the system recognize the input signal to determine which group will be active automatically, e.g. Dolby Digital or music group to play music on all devices.
I have the following devices: pulse SOUNDBAR, mini and two flex speakers (pulse sub ordered).
