Connection to soundbar, missing connection

Jump to solution

My tv does not have hdmi arc or a digital optical cable port. So how do I connect to my tv. Can I just hook to regular hdmi? Or will there be audio issues

Hi @Sweetycorn,

Thanks for reaching out, and welcome to the Roku Community!

A few things to take note of are that a socket connection requires both HDMI ARC and either optical cable port.

To send audio from the TV to the streambar, there must be an HDMI-ARC or optical connection between the TV and the streambar. If one of these two connections is missing, the streambar's speakers will be the only way to hear audio from the Roku feature.

We hope this answers your query. If there's anything else we can do to further assist you, feel free to get back here and let the Community know about it.

Thanks,

Rey
