Connecting LG Soundbar to Sony TV


Standard Member
Hi newbie here -please please can anyone help!

I have bought an LG DVD Soundbar (HLB54S) and have connected it to my Sony TV (KDL-32U2000)with an HDMI cable. It works fine when watching DVDs, but when I want to watch TV I cannot get any sound from the TV to the soundbar. I am sure I just need the correct cables but I do not know which ones to buy, or where to put them.

I enclose a photo showing the connection points of the soundbar and also that of the TV. If anyone can help then I would be very grateful.

Many thanks.

It appears your TV does not have a digital sound output, only a phono, while the soundbar only has digital inputs hence there is no easy way to connect them together.
