control sound bar volume with Roku tv remote?

Ok so I'm stumped here. I had it set up for a while where the audio went through the rear 3.5mm jack into my Vizio sound bar. Power went out a while back and now I cannot figure out how I did it. I can't use ARC because I don't have an HDMI on the sound bar. I didn't get a remote with the sound bar either so I can't mess with any of the settings there. Any suggestions? It's a Hisense 4k Roku tv and a Vizio s3821w. Remove if not allowed, thank you in advance

I’m into videotapes and old electronics stuff, including extenders, converters and analog 4:3 TV sets (which are obsolete these days), and Miss Bianca is my favorite character in Disney’s The Rescuers (1977) and its sequel, The Rescuers Down Under (1990).

Are you sure you're using the right 3.5mm jack? There are two, one is marked av input, which is for breakout cable, 3.5 to rca. The other 3.5mm plug is the headphone jack, an output and probably the one you were using.
