Setup soundbar with cable box

My cable box is connected to TV through HDMI ARC.  I want to connect my soundbar.  The only other HDMI on TV is not ARC.  Do I just use the optical connector or do I need both optical and HDMI connectors.  Will I have to switch back and forth between HDMI and Roku when I use TV

Re: Setup soundbar with cable box

What does the cable box need with a hdmi-arc input that a regular hdmi won't work for it? Put the cable on the just hdmi input, use hdmi-arc for the soundbar.
