I bought a Element tv and a craig soundbar. The tv I purchased does not have audio out. Is there a way to connect my sounbar or do I have to purchase a new tv?

If you use the TV's built in tuner then you either have to have an audio out or bluetooth. If you have a cable/satellite box then it may have an audio out. If you have HDMI input(s) but use the TV tuner right now, you could purchase an external tuner which has an audio out and use the HDMI input on the TV to display the picture. There are options, but they may not be straightforward.

Started rumbling out something about buying off-brand stuff but going to be civilized and go with americanaudiophile. Buy all your av stuff in one place and the nice sales person will sell you stuff that can be hooked up together.
