Yes I did, it takes a few moments for me to complete a reply though,

Your LG is a very basic model with very limited features, it does not have any audio output capabilities of any form.

So the tv itself cannot support a soundbar directly.

What you can do though is connect the soundbar directly to your source device, so you'd run an optical cable (preferably) or red/white rca cables, from the output of your cable/satellite box, dvd, etc to the soundbar.

There is no other option for outputting from the tv.

If you are using just antenna, you could use an external tuner for that purpose though.
