Question Dell U3011 sound problem in component mode

Feb 12, 2019
I have a U3011 Dell Monitor that was given to me. Because it did not come with integrated speakers, I bought a ONA18HO020 soundbar. It works great. (at the time, I was unaware that Dell offered a soundbar extra for this particular monitor)

I'm using it as a TV with Spectrum cable. Sound is perfect. Picture is amazing.

My issue, that I desperately need help with, is that when I hooked up a Sony DVD player, model DVP-SR101P using a component Video Cable, I get video, but no sound from my soundbar.
(I hooked the cable between the two devices according to color. Blue to blue, red to red and green to green)

Whenever I flip back to HDMI-1 in input source on the monitor, sound is back.

I'm now in my 3rd hour of trying everything I can think of to get sound when input source component is selected.
What am I doing wrong?
Should I buy the Dell soundbar AX510? Will that fix this issue?

Thanks in advance!
