ok thanks , i have managed to connect my external harddrive to the sound bar via hdmi but im struggling with connecting the rest of my equiptment, ie.. bt vision box which runs my tv programmes

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
Your TV does have Coaxial Audio Out jack (its round jack similar to RCA jack) that provides digital audio signal and you need to hook Digital Coax to Optical Converter device which will convert coax signal into optical audio signal where you can plug optical cable of sound bar to get TV sound in sound bar.
Please check following link to view required Digital Coax to Optical Converter Device price info...

if i go and buy this device will it defo work and will all my other devices work also, i have three hdmi inputs on my tv and two on the soundbar plus 1 hdmi output on the soundbar is there anyway i can connect my tv / external hard drive and ps3 to the soundbar without this device your recommending

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
Sound bar has ARC (audio return channel) feature that works through HDMI and TV must have same HDMI port having ARC mark/ feature.
You can connect all your devices to TV and Coax Audio Out port on TV will work whatever device is being watched so your sound bar will provide the sound as well through Digital Coax to Optical Converter Device.
I hope these info will help, please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
Thank you.
