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.
I'm also having a problem connecting my Roku remote
to my sound bar. I just subscribed to Direct TV and purchased the Roku Streaming Stick 4K+. I have an LG TV and LG sound bar. None of the info on Roku website addresses sound bar issues. I also can't even control the volume through the TV on my Roku. I am not tech savvy in any way and would love some advice in plain English if anyone can help me.
@coopergx, by "I also can't even control the volume through the TV on my Roku" I assume you mean the volume buttons on the Roku remote don't control the TV's volume? Did you go through the process under Settings->Remotes & devices->Remotes->(voice remote)->Setup remote for TV control?
Does the TV's remote control the volume of the sound bar?
