Hi Stewart,

It won't be possible to connect the soundbar directly to the TV, however you may be able to connect it to the input device instead, e.g. a Sky box or DVD player.

Hi Stewart,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I'll need to know what devices you have connected to the TV?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Panasonic Blu ray player

What is the model number of your Panasonic Blu ray player?

Does it have a optical out connection that you can connect directly to the soundbar?
