Connecting soundbar where Roku Ultra has no optical out

Jump to solution

I need help. New to the Roku thing as Comcast has sucked enough cash outta me. Here's my issue; I have a Roku Ultra but no optical out on the device. I wanna hook up a soundbar but since the only HDMI connected goes from TV to Roku, how can the soundbar fit in? My TV has an optical out. Thanks!

Soundbars work with audio out of device like a tv, either  ARC or optical outputs.  A Roku Ultra has no separate audio output.
