I have a Philips Soundbar Model #HTL2101 /F7 with Coax
I have an AT&T DVR with Coax, Audio/Visual Output, Optical Output Output and HDMI
I have a ProScan PLEDV2845A


When I first brought the soundbar home, I read the instructions and updated the Soundbar with the latest firmware.


I then connected it directly to the HDTV via a Digital Cable.


It worked, but the sound was a little low.


Then the power went out and when the TV and DVR and Soundbar came back up, soundbar was not working and now I have no idea how to get it to work again.

Should I attached the Soundbar directly to the DVR instead? If so, do I use Optical Cable, Digital Cable or A/V (Red/White/Yellow) output?

If not connect the sound bar directly to the DVR, do I connect it to the TV? If so, is there any special configuration on the ProScan HDTV?

Please help - the ProScan HDTV Audio output sucks..


Thanks


Jeff

Hi Bro Jeff Wolfe, use optical or digital coaxial cable (both output the same).

AT&T DVR -> HDMI cable -> Proscan TV
AT&T DVR -> Optical cable -> Soundbar

This should give you an option to watch cable box with and without the soundbar.
