Connecting Your Soundbar with an Optical Cable

Your Soundbar comes with at least one digital optical (TOSLINK) input. The steps below will walk you through connecting your Soundbar to your TV or external device using an optical digital connection. Before you begin, you will need: - 1 Optical (toslink) Audio cable - any brand will work - Remove any plastic protective casing from your Optical Audio cable - Remove any plastic plugs from the optical port on your external device - Power off your Soundbar, TV and external device(s) before making any connections

To connect your external device(s), follow the steps below

  1. Connect one end of the Optical Audio cable to the Optical Digital IN port on the back of the Soundbar.

       

       

  2. Connect the other end of the Optical Audio cable to the Optical Digital OUT port on the back of your TV or device.
    • Remember, when making connections with an Optical cable always go OUT from the device you are connecting to and IN to the Soundbar.
    • If you are connecting a TV all audio will output to the Soundbar. Meaning, if you connect all your external sources to your TV, and then connect an optical digital cable out from your TV into the Soundbar, all audio will be sent to the Soundbar and be output through it's speakers.
    • If you are connecting an external device like a game console, cable box, satellite receiver, etc., all audio will be sent to the Soundbar, but you must connect a video cable (HDMI, Composite, Component, etc.) from the external device to your TV and set your TV to the input where the external device is connected.

         

  3. Power on your external device, followed by your soundbar and TV. Press the Source button on the soundbar remote to set your soundbar to digital in, the front display will read D-IN. If you have no audio, remember to power on your external device(s) and tune your TV to the input where the external device is connected.
