I havnt actuall purchased one yet. I was thinking of getting it from Tesco. They have a Technic model on offer for £22, but I am open to suggestions. Would prefer a Samsung as it will match tv and dvd

I don't want to buy anything until I am convinced that it will work with my tv

ok, there are three ways it can be connected, via an optical cable, composite (red and white) or HDMI (arc). It all depends on the soundbar.
For your TV though I checked the output ports and there are no audio output ports, and this actual model cannot even connect to a home theater system.
Sorry but with this TV it is not possible, it is the lowest spec from the TV range. Excellent picture and sound from the actual TV, but not too much functionality sorry.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

ok thanks. I feared as much. How about connecting a soundbar to just the DVD player. At least I would have decent sound when watching films. . What do you think?

Can you tell me the make and model of the DVD player please and I can check for you.

yes this will work and you can use either a HDMI cable or a Digital Audio Cable.
Page 13 of the manual shows you this

So make sure your soundbar supports this.
