Have bought a Panasonic soundbar SC-HTB8. No connection cable included. Which cable do we need to buy to connect Soundbar to tv please?


You will need an optical digital audio connection for the TV and the TV will have to be fitted with a compatible "optical digital audio" OUT connection.
The soundbar unit you have does not have an HDMI connection so you only have the one choice with cable..
Any electronics store selling cables will fit you with the correct one.
The one pictured here next to the HDMI cable is the type you need (aka Toslink) but if you don't have an Optical digital Audio Out connection on your TV you have a problem.

Bought a lg soundbar and optical cable connected to back of tv with jack adaptor but soundbar won't work can someone tell me if why? Thanks


I am going to guess here that you are running this through an audio system or a cable box. Your audio needs to come form the source, not the TV. Ex. If you were to go optic cable out of your cable box and into the TV optic then you would get sound out of your TV speakers. Go direct to sound bar.

A LG soundbar to a Laurus TV I've fix a optical lead one end and jack plug on the other but it doesn't work


A fiber optic cable carries infrared light path only. It's a digital signal, you can only connect this to equipment that has an optic connection. Adapting it with any kind of analog jack just simply won't function.

checking the Google images of the Digital module does not show a tos-link connection for the module.

Vizio help


Not sure the issue. HDMI from cable box to TV. Same with Vizio.
The soundbar usually connects to the optical out from the TV to the in on the soundbar. Subwoofer has to be paired to the soundbar. Instructions should explain or maybe find online by manufacturer

Sound bar compatibility


Make sure red glow is coming from TV's Opt out cable when TV is on. If it is, it is working. The best solution is use an LG soundbar with an LG TV. There is a differnce in digital outputs and with a "service remote" (used by authorized LG servicers) you might be able to change the TVs factory setting to make the vizio soundbar work. but I think you'll be better off with the LG soundbar.

Is a lg sound bar system compatable with a lg 42ls3450 tv.


Having the same problem. Can't connect the soundbar via HDMI as the LG 42LS3450 does not support Audio Return Channel over HDMI. Which means I'm only left with optical cable, but the TV doesn't seem to have that either!
