So I have a Dynex 720p HDTV Model #:DX-32L221A12
And a Philips soundbar #: HTL2101/F7

I tried connecting the red/white aux audio cables to both and turned down the volume along with muting the TV. The remote on the soundbar works as I can see the lights lighting up when I try upping the volume. Sound doesn't work. I went into Dynex Menu and there doesn't seem to be an option to turn off the speakers from what I can see.

I then went out and bought a Digital Coaxial cable and hooked that up and It still isn't working.

Does the soundbar have multiple inputs? If so, you need to select the one you are using. Make sure you read the manual and the back panel of the TV, those sound output may only be for one source, although most often it's for anything connected to the TV.

If you have an optical out, that will get you the best quality, and it can also run 5.1 audio (although the soundbar will "fake" that effect.
