If your Sound Bar has an HDMI-ARC port, you can use an HDMI cable to connect the Sound Bar to your TV.

When the Sound Bar is connected to your TV via the ARC port, you may require adjusting your TV’s CEC setting to control the external speaker. Some newer models may auto-detect that HDMI-ARC is connected, and automatically begin to control the Sound Bar.
