Using a Roku sound bar with M series Vizio smart tv

I have a 2 year-old Roku sound bar that worked great with my old TCL Roku tv.  I just purchased an Vizio M series smart tv.  I have the Roku sound bar connected to HDMI 1 eARC port on the Vizio.  Can I control the Roku sound bar with my Vizio supplied remote?

If so do I need to use a different HDMI port, do I need to purchase an different HDMI cable as I don’t think the current cable is eARC capable, or a different remote?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Using a Roku sound bar with M series Vizio smart tv

Hi @Zetta2492,

Thanks for posting here in the Roku Community!

We appreciate you inquiring about the remotes' compatibility with your smart TV and the Roku soundbar. Kindly be advised that the Roku soundbar and other branded smart TVs have different operating systems, which means that the only way to control the Roku soundbar is with the Roku remote that comes with it.

If there's anything we can do to assist you further, please let us know.

All the best,

Takashi O.
