Magic Remote Universal Control - Sony Sound Bar

I just purchased an 55SK8000PUA UHD TV with the Magic Remote. I am attempting to set up Universal Control of my Sony HTMT300/B Soundbar using the Device Connector app. My sound bar is connected via Optical cable. None of the 11 Sony "remote types" work with this Sound Bar. I am able to program a universal third party remote to the sound bar using a code. Is there a way to input a device code into the Magic Remote so that it can control this device?

    kevinxb, there is not. The only way to set up the universal control on the magic remote would be through the Device Connector. If the remote types are not compatible in the Device Connector it would not be compatible at this time.

    Another option that works for some sound bars is selecting LG Sound Sync (Optical) in the Sound Out settings. It doesn't work with every sound bar but customer have had success with various non LG sound bars.
