Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!The projector should have an auxiliary audio output to connect to your soundbar...you should be able to connect the two via a 3.5mm audio cable

Actually, I apologize, I looked at the incorrect model specs.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
The Panasonic PT-AT6000e actually does not have an audio out port. So what you would actually want to do is connect your soundbar to your blu ray player.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
Dependent on the model of your blu ray player you may need to connect it via 3.5mm audio cable, or possibly and RCA component cable.

The bl-ray player is a Sony BDP-S7200 which has a red 3.5mm female socket with DIGITAL OUT COAXIAL PCM/DTS/DOLBY DIGITAL marked on it. The only other sockets are USB, HDMI out and Lan (100).

So you should be able to use the red 3.5mm female socket to connect to your sound bars 3.5mm female socket using a 3.5mm audio aux cable

Thank you or your advise. As I am awaiting delivery of my projector I am unable to do as you advise but it appears to be the logical solution. Perhaps I can come back to you if it dos't solve the issue in a couple of weeks time.

Very many thanks, R
