I am trying to connect a very basic Phillips soundbar with only RCA audio inputs, no HDMI or optical to a Dynex TV that is connected via HDMI to a WOW Arris Cable box/dvr via HDMI. I've tried all different combinations with the RCA cables, from the box to the soundbar and from the tv to the soundbar but nothing works. Any help would be great, thank you

As HDMI is a digital only signal, and RCA is an analog signal only, you would need some kind of D2A converter/amp to accomplish your goal.

Is there such a thing as an HDMI to RCA converter as neither the tv or the soundbar have optical inputs or outputs?
