I impulsively purchased a Samsung HW-km36/za soundbar that comes with a toslink cable. My Vizio e series TV does not have a toslink connection on it.

I purchased a digital to analog audio converter.
I connected the optical cable to the soundbar and the other end to digital to analog audio converter.

From the converter I used the Aux to RCA connection on the TV but still no audio sound from soundbar. Any Ideas, Thanks
 
A digital to analog converter is not the same as an analog to digital converter. Doesn't work in both directions. You need an ADC to connect the analog audio output to the toslink digital input of the soundbar.

Vizio E series TVs do seem to have digital audio out so if it's RCA coax digital audio out you could use a coax to optical digital converter.

If you use this you will need to configure it in the TV menu. Check the manual.
