I have a Samsung TV, am trying to connect it to my iLive sound bar with the optical cable. The sound comes out but very low. Tried connecting with HDMI cable but there was absolutely no sound. When I tried the red & white audio cable, same result, no sound. I have AT&T U verse.

Aside from a possible faulty sound bar, did you check the sound bar audio level? Not sure what the other connections you are trying on the TV but those are most likely INPUTS not OUTPUT connections, so you won't get any sound out of that.
 
Using the optical cable check the TV audio or set up menu.
Make sure the optical output turned on. You may need to set it to PCM stereo. The TV speakers may also have to be turned off.
Make sure you selected the optical input on the soundbar. It's fine to turn the soundbar up as high as you want. There's nothing wrong with it having the volume setting high so long as it sounds OK.

Yes, l checked the sound bar, it plays music loud and clear. Even did the TV sound test which was also loud & clear. Checked the settings which are all correct. I am using the optical cable which lit up that shows it is connected,
