Customer Question

Hi - I am looking to buy a Soundbar but want to make sure it is compatible with my flat screen TV
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Model: E550i-A0
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: The TV menu - via remote - works, but poorly. But it does work But I use the TWC remote for almost everything besides the Smart TV aspect
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: I am just trying to decide what soundbar to buy, and wan't to ensure compatability and/or the best way to go about evaluating I was oging to buy a Vizio 2.0 channel soundbar But didn't want to run into issues with multiple remote controllers, etc. I want to simplify! but most importantly get a soundbar that is sleak and simple and can hook up with the TV i'm not a tech expert ha
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: It's Vizio LED HDTV and I gave model #, but have it hooked up to TWC cable router

OK
Expert:  Shahid replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for waiting, this TV has one digital audio out port that needs optical cable connection and one analog audio out (redpwhite RCA jacks) on side panel that needs regular audio cable to connect the TV to any external sound system/ soundbar.

Please make sure the soundbar you're selecting has optical input and AUX input for analog sound connection so you can hook the soundbar in either way to get sound from TV. Through optical cable you would be able to control the sound level through TV remote, soundbar remote will be used one time to set it on correct input so it can get TV sound signals.

I hope these info will help. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page.
