As usual you provide no exact make/model, so am going to makes guesses...

Ideal situation: TV ----(HDMI ARC)----> SB. This provides best sound and allows CEC (power, volume) control.

Next option: TV ----(optical)----> SB. No CEC control.
If you are getting the soundbar to work but not the surround speakers then check that the TV is set to bitstream rather than PCM. Make sure that the content is in surround. The surround speakers will only be active when the director of the film turns them on. It's not unusual for a film to only have seconds of surround sound.
