Soundbar Arc for LG LN540V

Hi. New to forum and joined to get some advice for my Mum's LG LN540V tv.

Dad died on Sunday and initially had this soundbar idea for him as he is deaf. Mum is keen to carry the idea through (on a budget equal to what dad set bless her lol).

I initially purchased a cheapy Polaroid bar but there is only rca link meaning I can only connect to Sky box and not the LG DVD, which is important as mum like her tunes and movies. That clearly was no use and went back. After a little research I thought about opti-link but believe this will not allow box to be controlled with TV handset.

I want to make things as simple as poss for my mum as she 81 (quite with it still)

Question is, the TV is apparently ARC so would a HDMI soundbox be useable and would it be controlled by the TV remote? There is no headphone socket on TV which has made this whole thing a real pain. What soundboxes would do the job for around £100 and be straightforward enough (TV volume controlled) for mum to get her head around and for myself to install?

Thanks in advance.

Dave.

Moved to TV forum.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Sorry, I thought a question regarding a soundbar would come under hardware.

Optical out should work fine on any soundbar. If the TV has a variable audio output option you could control your volume with the TV remote. Someone who has this TV can better answer.
