Followed gregates directions with monoprice 5557. Cable box to 5557 input via hdmi and 5557 output via hdmi to LG tv. Optical digital cable from 5557 to sound bar. When watching Netflix audio on soundbar is from tv.
The audio is coming from the cable box connected to hdmi1 even though I have switched to hdmi2 where chromecast is plugged in. I have tried turning off the cable box as well as having the tv as input to 5557 splitter box - no luck. So question is how do I get the audio from Netflix on my soundbar?
Oh that it was as simple as plugging the optical cable into the tv. My LG has no audio output. The Monoprice 105557 is an hdmi splitter that I thought may resolve the issue. Prior to installing the 105557 the setup was:
Chromecast dongle in hdmi2 on back of tv.
HDMI from cable box to tv.
RCA cables from cable box audio output to tv.
This setup gives me audio on the soundbar only from tv even on hdmi2 as audio is coming from cable box.
