You find that at the back of the tv and it should start with the letters TH or TC as in TH-P40...... for example

What type of cable do you have to connect this soundbar to the tv ?

Is it optical or standard rca/phono type stereo cable ?

Expert:  Jack replied 10 months ago.

By the way , I may not need it for now but there are several models of iLIVE sound bars

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Its standard rca cable connected to the audio. I don't have cable. I have Nexus streaming box connected. Can you do it faster because I have to go to work soon.
Expert:  Jack replied 10 months ago.

Faster ?

Been waiting for you 15 minutes

Expert:  Jack replied 10 months ago.

Alright then here is faster , this tv does not have analog audio outs

Expert:  Jack replied 10 months ago.

The only audio out is optical so unless you have a digital to analog converter you will need an optical cable and a sound bar that can take optical .

This is where the sound bar model number would come in handy

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No.
Expert:  Jack replied 10 months ago.

No ?? to what ??

Expert:  Jack replied 10 months ago.

The sound bar model number would start with something like ITP ,ITB etc.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Lets forget it. Have a good day.
Expert:  Jack replied 10 months ago.

No problem

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
