Last question: I looked at the Onkyo TX-SR313 AV receiver. If I am to get it (Amazon.com) how is it connected. I have a picture of the back of the Onkyo (via Amazon.com).
If I am to get it, I want to have the option to have it on for all components.
yes....a recommendation that will support the sound bar.
take your time. :)
I am fine with the RCA connection from the sound bar.
HDMI IN 1 (DVI)
HDMI IN 2
this is the 2 HDMI connections.
This is making it even harder to find a solution that will work as all Home Theater receivers rely on an ARC compatible HDMI jack.
Alright, so I've finally found a receiver that does not require the ARC function to get audio from HDMI connected devices.
The Sony at the link below would work, and you'd connect ALL HDMI compatible devices to the HDMI Inputs on the receiver, then run a single HDMI cable out to the TV.
Then for the soundbar connection, you'd use the headphone jack on the Sony- which is the only audio jack that will output sound from the HDMI Inputs. Plug a 1/4" stereo to RCA adapter into the receiver, then run RCA cables to the soundbar.
The converter is at the link below:

Thank you very much!!!!! :)
I got it connected. I connected from the soundbar to the source unit (ie, cable box, BD, & Roku). All 3 source unit is now connected 2 ways...by HDMI & RCA, HDMI & Digital Coaxial, and HDMI & Optical cable.
I had no idea 2 connection (OUT) from the same source unit would work; but it did.
Thanks for your help.
Happy Holidays :)
