Very frustrated.
No sound from sound bar.
Connected sound bar to TV via HDMI OUT (ARC) port (which happens to be labeled as HDMI 1 on back of TV). Set sound bar to "HDMI" but don't know how to set the Vizio TV to connect to this external audio device. Can anyone help me?

First problem is that you don't want to set the soundbar to "HDMI". That setting is for the HDMI input on the soundbar. Apparently you have nothing connected there. You want to use the "D.IN" input (which may display as "ARC.IN").

Not familiar with your Vizio, but check your audio out settings to see if there's something like "external". You also need to have CEC enabled on the Vizio.
