Help connecting Vizio Soundbar (SB3651-E6) to Pioneer PDP-4280 plasma TV

Apr 29, 2018
Also have a Blu-Ray, Roku, and Chrome Cast all connected to the TV. Want to use the HDMI cable to connect the soundbar to the TV. Can only get sound out of the soundbar by using the RCA connection. (Does not work with the digital optical or the HDMI cables.) Should I connect the soundbar to the Blu-Ray player using the digital optical connection instead of the TV? Something about no digital audio output from the TV..... I'm very confused!
The TV doesn´t support HDMI ARC, so HDMI won´t work. Optical should work, eventually you will have to set this in TV

manual of your TV page 67:
Switching the optical audio signal type
Set up for the DIGITAL OUT terminal (OPTICAL), depending on your sound bar
Select “Option”
Select “Digital Audio Out”
Select “Dolby Digital” or “PCM”

Also you should get sound via the BD player, this way you can control your BD player via the TV´s remote (have a look at the manual how to set the control settings page 76)
HDMI out from BD player to HDMI in of the sound bar
HDMI out to the TV
