Is there a way to connect my TV sound output directly to my soundbar?

Is there a way to connect my TV sound output directly to my soundbar?

Currently I have it wired from a receiver but I my receiver's sound seems to have stopped working. I looked up online and it seem like its a problem with a CPU overheating and melting the connection or something.
( Integra DTR 30.3)


My TV is a Sony Bravia purchase a few years ago. I currently using the optical cable TOS link to the receiver which has thick copper wires going to the soundbar.

The sound bar is called " Horizon series HZ-UT"

Ok, I have photos of my setup but this forum is like blocking the link with ******* symbol.

What is going on? Is this new censorship? If so, how can I share the pictures of my setup?

It looks like your soundbar is a "passive" soundbar, which basically means it's just a speaker or array of speakers. Most soundbars today are "active" soundbars, meaning that they have a built-in amp. Because yours does not have it's own amp built-in, it needs power from your receiver. Unfortunately, this means you'll need to replace your receiver if you want to use the soundbar, as the soundbar cannot "stand on it's own."
