Hi, I have an LG sound bar along with an epson 1060 projector. How do I connect my soundbar to the projector so the audio comes from the soundbar? I had my sound bar connected to my TV using the the small optical cable it came with. There doesnt seem to be any other sports in the back of this sound bar as well. Only the DC in for the power and the small optical in port. Please help! Thanks in advance.

Sadly, TV's work differently to projectors and as a rule don't output any audio unless they are receiving it from another device.

If you have a freeview box or Sky, Virgin etc... which has both HDMI and Optical, then you will be able to enjoy visuals and sound from it as you did from your TV

Ok, how would I connect a laptop to the soundbar? The soundbar only has one port which is an optical. My laptop does not have that port. How could I connect to get sound from my laptop through the soundbar?

firstly I would consult the booklet that came with the laptop as some headphone outputs also double as a digital out using a special digital cable.

If not, your going to have to find an analogue to digital converter which will take a signal from a 3.5mm headphone output then amplify it so that it can output the correct level. Within the laptop you’re going to have to downmix everything to 2ch too as your soundbar looks like it hasn’t the ability to work this way as it has no analogue inputs (or at least you haven’t mentioned it has any)

Laptop - what is the make and model number?

Soundbar - which LG model do you have?

Source devices - any other devices or just the Soundbar?
