Hi there, looks like I got the right thread to ask my question, so I'm hoping y'all might be able to kindly assist me. Please bear with me as I'm no advanced techie (I just know how to hook up an HDTV to my cable box & videogame consoles w/ HDMI cables and sync my wireless devices to the wireless router#..hehe..
Components that will be included:
-an LG INFINIA 55LW5600 55" Full 3D 1080p HDTV LED LCD Television w/ Web Browser and Internet Apps
-an LG BD670 3D Wireless Network Blu-ray Disc Player w/ Smart TV
-a JVC TH-BA1 Soundbar system #4.1 channel & Dolby Digital/DTS/Dolby Pro Logic II Decoders, 2 Digital Optical Audio-In ports# w/ 2.4GHz Wireless Subwoofer and an accompanying Mediabridge Toslink Optical Digital Audio Cable
Ok, so here's the scoop: like htownm I recently purchased the same LG 55LW5600 3DTV #along with the LG BD670 3D Blu-ray Player# and want to see if/how my existing JVC TH-BA1 Soundbar system will play nice & work on the new 3DHDTV.
After reading through this thread the first thing I did was to check to see if the soundbar has HDMI ports but it doesn't, only the 2 Digital #Optical# Audio-In ports. I haven't received the new LG TV & BD Player as yet #they're expected sometime this week# so I'm currently using my soundbar w/ my older TV #a Vizio VP504F, which the new LG 3DHDTV will replace#, connected to it via the Mediabridge Toslink Optical Digital Audio Cable I bought alongside the soundbar back in Feb '10.
With that in mind, does anyone know if I'll encounter problems connecting the TH-BA1 to the new LG set via the optical digital audio cable? Will I lose any sound fidelity? Does the 3D BD Player come into play and make the setup more complicated? If there are potential problems could someone please suggest any work-arounds? I don't want to have to look for a newer soundbar and shell out more $.
I've previously gotten great help here on the forums when I got my Vizio HDTV and any help with these new questions would be very much appreciated :# Thanks in advance and very best,
