Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions so could you please send me a reply with the model numbers of the soundbar and tv when you are ready to proceed ?

Thanks and you said that you tried to connect it to the tv via the optical port ?

Sorry but a phone call will just be superfluous at this time , I need numbers and manuals so this will be done better with the computer and if it comes to that then I will give you that call
