Playing other devices on Roku sounbar

Jump to solution

Question: will the Roku sounbar play the sound when I am playing dvd/blu-ray player or my VCR? I am considering buying the Roku sounbar, but if it won't work with either one of these devices, I may have to try another option for sound.

With the OP still having a vcr? Their tv may not have an audio out. Which they would need to send audio from other devices connected to the tv, to the streambar. So @fsted2a  your tv has to have hdmi-arc or optical audio output, does it?
