Soundbar connected by bluetooth

We purchased the Roku tv about a year ago. We purchased it with an LG soundbar that we connected the same day the TV was purchased. My boyfriend disconnected the speaker because he couldn't find the remote....... 🤬 And months later I'm trying to readd the speaker. The option to connect a Bluetooth device is now GONE. And I've read a couple of threads about how apparently these TV's don't support a non Roku item. That's bull. Does anyone know what changed?

Re: Soundbar connected by bluetooth

You do not connect a Soundbar to the tv via Bluetooth. Roku tv's do not have bluetooth anyways. You either use hdmi-arc to connect the soundbar to arc input on the tv. Or you use an optical cable to send the tv sound to the soundbar.
