Okay, your TV does not use RCA red and white for "Audio Out"- those are Inputs for the component connections. The TV you have uses an OPTICAL audio port (labeled "Digital Audio Out") on the back of it. The JBL also has an Optical port. You need to connect an optical cable (available at Best Buy, Radio Shack or even Wal Mart) from the TV to the soundbar, then go into the TV's SOUND settings and shut off the internal speakers. On the soundbar you then select the "D-IN" (digital input) to allow the sound to playback.
