Hi. I just got the Samsung HW-E450 soundbar today and I have spent all day trying to set it up. However, no matter what I try, no sound seems to project. At least not from my TV (Samsung ln32d403e4d.) The speakers work, because I was able to use the Bluetooth function to play music from my phone. But neither an HDMI cable nor the Aux cable that comes with the soundbar seem to work.
I want to primarily use the soundbar for television programs and for Wii games. However, the Wii has no HDMI slot, which means I cannot directly connect it to the soundbar. And my television doesn't seem to have an HDMI Arc outlet (though it has a regular HDMI and HDMI [DVI] slot.) There is also no optical outlet on my tv.. So literally my only choices of connection seem to be HDMI and Aux, yet neither one provides sound from the soundbar. Am I basically screwed because my television is incompatible?
