    Can't Connect Vizio Sound bar to Samsung TV

    So, I have been given a Vizio vsb206 sound bar and I can't find a way to connect it to my TV. I have a Samsung 32" LED Smart TV and I guess it doesn't use the same input's and outputs as the sound bar. Is there any type of converter I can use to switch my TV'S audio connection over to RCA?
