i have tv with no hdmi arc or optical connections. I have 3 hdmi ports on my alba tv, 2 are connected to my cable & blueray player. The maxwell mxsb-252 soundbar has 3hdmi in & 1 hdmi out ports. How do i connect please, my idea was to disconnect the dvd & cable hdmi from rear of tv & insert to the hdmi on s/box & use an hdmi connection from s/box hdmi out to the now vacant tv hdmi I have ordered the s/box, but maybe i should cancel if it is not possible to hook up.
Since the soundbar has 3 hdmi inputs you can connect the cable box and bluray player to it with HMDI and use the HDMI output to feed the TV. You don't need a switch box.
not sure what u mean by a switchbox., i agree that the connections you state sound logic, little worried that previous soloutions say that that the connection from the hdmi out on thes/box should be connected to an hdmi arc socket on my tv which i dont have, just 3 normal hdmi ports.
