So I have a Haier soundbar and I am trying to hook it up to a Panasonic Panasonic VIERA TC-P42ST30. My goal is to run an optical cable from the optical out on the TV to the optical in on the soundbar. But when I do this I get no sound from the TV. I am using an over the air antenna, Wii and ps3. I have tried two different optical cables and neither of them are giving me sound. If I hook a ps3 up to the soundbar directly via HDMI I do get sound. So at least I know the soundbar speakers are working. So here is my issue. Is the optical out on my TV busted? Is the optical input on the soundbar busted? Is there a setting on my TV where I need to tell it to output via optical instead of TV speakers? Thoughts? This is driving me nuts. I thought I could run the Wii, ps3 and OTA directly to the TV, run optical out to the soundbar and be done. This 10 minute project is taking much longer.
