    I've got a Sonos playbar and a Panasonic GT30b TV. I've just tried to connect it and found out the sonos uses an optical out lead and the Panasonic has an audio out connector.

    Is that different? If so, is it possible to connect with some sort of adapter?

    Hi, no that's not the same. The port on the back of my tv says digital audio out and is a little square port. Like the optical port on slightly different size

    Did it help? At least if you replied it would help other people with a similar problem.

    I have a GT30B and connected a playbar without issue. You need to use the optical digital adapter cable you got with the panny and connect to playbar.
    Simples!
