Thanks - if I could be clearer though .....The cable is secured at both ends. There is only one optical connector on the back of the TV, labeled (Optical Digital Audio Out). The back of the Yamaha has two optical inputs, one plain: Optical and the other labeled TV. It is plugged into the Optical input. If I plug it into the TV subtitle then there is no sound just picture.
No worries - could you clarify though on the connections a bit more?Sorry, I'm a little still ignorant of it, I just bought it.
Again you can ignore the ARC marking - plug the OS ARC HDMI out intk an HDMI input on the soundbar. But another HDMI cable if you have to and plug that into the soundbar HDMI out marked ARC and into an HDMI input on the TV. Change the optical input to the one marked TV. That is what is shown in the manual and is the best way to connect those devices where teh TV has no ARC HDMI input.The Playstation has HDMI 2 (ARC) plugged in, so it works well.
