Roku smart soundbar still playing sound while TV is off.

Hello. 

On my newish smart TV when I turned the TV off the soundbar would also turn off. 

I have moved my old TV to the roku soundbar. It's an older TV, seven to eight years, not a smart TV. When I turn that TV off the sound keeps coming through the soundbar. Any thoughts on why this is happening?

Perhaps the older tv doesn't have cec, so the soundbar doesn't get a signal the tv is off. Cec is for two-way communication between devices.

So right now it's just hooked up through hdmi, should I try hooking it up with the digital optical cable as well and see if that works?
