    Hi all,
    Just getting into AV a bit more and just bought a Roth Bar 3 soundbar.
    Sadly my Toshiba flat screen TV doesn't have an optical output, and the RCA lead from the TV to the bar didn't work???
    So I've connected the bar up to the Virgin + box (optical) for sound.

    I'd like to be able to watch DVD's through the box, and I've got the DVD player running into the 'video' socket of the Virgin box, thinking this would work, but it doesn't...

    If it helps, the TV is on the Virgin box HDMI connection...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You'll need to connect the DVD player to the sound bar as well.

    Maybe I didn't make myself clear - I cannot get a picture on my TV (DVDs)...

    HDMI from DVD player direct to TV, AND optical or RCA from DVD player direct to soundbar.

    Your Virgin box won't have any inputs only outputs, so you can't go DVD player to Virgin box to TV/soundbar.
