Good afternoon,

I bought my parents a Panasonic SC-HTB200 soundbar for Christmas, which supports HDMI ARC and digital optical input.

Unfortunately, my parents' TV does not have either an HDMI ARC port or a digital optical output port. It does, however, have a headphone jack and two analogue output sockets.

Could anyone suggest a converter which means the soundbar will connect to the TV?

Well you are a bad child, buying stuff without checking if it will work. Now your poor parents have the promise of using a sound bar but it's just out of reach. After they gave you life and everything. I don't think that the TV has two other analog out connections unless it a high end business display. You would need a 3.5 mm to dual RCA cable then an analog to digital audio converter like this https://www.amazon.com/Musou-Digital-Optical-Toslink-Converter/dp/B01HGHNCMW/ref=pd_cp_23_1/141-2297472-2595100?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01HGHNCMW&pd_rd_r=e39781bd-0e66-4009-b756-de2bf41ab1c3&pd_rd_w=1YKrk&pd_rd_wg=8ThPR&pf_rd_p=0e5324e1-c848-4872-bbd5-5be6baedf80e&pf_rd_r=025YSSHT3CJ814762P72&psc=1&refRID=025YSSHT3CJ814762P72

I can't really recommend a specific model since I never had to use one of those cheap ones, the stuff I have experience with costs almost as much as a new TV.
