Resolved Question:

Hi
I have a Panasonic 42PZ70BA TV and I wish to connect an SC-HTB885EBK sound bar to it. I only have 2 HDMI sockets and they are currently connected to a Sky box and a DVD player. There is no optical connection available on the TV. I have an existing 5-1 sound system which uses the DVD player as an amplifier and connects to the TV by means of RCA leads. Is it is possible to connect the sound bar to the TV please?

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
You will need to use a 2 in 1 adapter so it auto switches when needed.
You would connect the Sky and DVD on this and the soundbar on its own port.
