Hi Keith,
The TV EXT(RGB) adapter is for inputting video signals into the TV - it does not allow audio from the TV to be outputted to the Celcus soundbar, so it will not work using that connection.
The soundbar is designed for bluetooth connections, however it is also possible to input sound to the soundbar using RGB Outputs - for this, you would need to use the Optical Audio output (beside the USB port) and use a Digital Audio to Analog Audio Converter to convert the signal for inputting to the soundbar.

Can I buy a Digital Audio to Analog Audio Converter with Red &White jacks at one end and optical at the other ,if so I will get one tomorrow & try it. Will this mean that sound & picture change together?

Expert:  Pete replied 3 years ago.
Hi Keith,

No, you will need to buy the converter, and then attach the cables to it. The price of a converter ranges from £10-£50. Here is what you need: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/390852025123

It will mean that for whatever picture is showing on the TV, the sound will be outputted to the soundbar (it's just like an extension of the TV's speakers).
