Does this help?


Expert:  Shahid replied 3 years ago.
TV specification shows it has 'Optical Audio output' terminal to connect it to external sound system.

The links you posted for pictures are like http://file///C:/Users/Grahame/Downloads/20140519_135349.jpg and I can't access directly to your C Drive from here.
Following is another file sharing site, just drag and drop the picture file on that site page to start uploading then copy the URL and paste it here..

Please try above link that should work.
Thanks.

Grahame,

In fact I'm thankful to you for helping me with those pictures.
Now your TV has only one option to connect with soundbar, it is Headphone jack but SC-HTB20 soundbar doesn't have analog audio input so this particular soundbar will not work with this TV.

Alternately, there is Samsung soundbar, HW-F751 that does have analog audio input and can be connected to this TV through headphone jack with 3.5mm audio cable that usually used for connection between laptop and speaker set, please check following link to view Samsung soundbar..

http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/home-entertainment/soundbar/HW-F751/XU

OR you may please select any other brand soundbar that should have analog audio input to connect to this TV.
Once again, thank you for sharing beautiful pictures of back of TV.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
