I have a Time Warner Cable box connected to a LG 47LW5600. Just bought a Vizio VHT215 soundbar. Need help to connect the soundbar to these two device. 47LW5600 has four HDMI, unsure any is with ARC or not. Also not sure it has digital optical.
Thanks in advice

Connect to the cable box and the two outputs to each TV.

Are you trying to advise me to buy some device from the posted link? Please advise. I just need some step by step advice on connecting these three devices. I'm very challenged with connecting AV devices together.

My mistake. I read too quickly. Sorry for the confusion.

From what I can read, both the TV and soundbar support ARC. So, run an HDMI cable the cable box into the soundbar's input and an HDMI from soundbar's HDMI output to the TV's (ARC capable) HDMI input. That's all you need.

Thank you, Ratman. I'll try your suggestion and report back if it works or not. I'm techno-challenged. Again, thank you.
