Connecting Insignia TV (NS-55D421NA16) to Insignia Soundbar (NS-SB314)

I'm relatively new to the whole home theater experience and I'm having some trouble getting my sound bar to work.

 

I recently just bought a brand new [url="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-55-class-54-6-diag--led-1080p-hdtv-black/4204503.p?id=121970776... and [url="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-soundbar-with-bluetooth-black/4157006.p?id=1219096745209&skuId=... bar[/url]. I connected the cables from the Source 3 RCA on the back of the sound bar to the left and right audio in on the back of the tv. After doing so, I changed my audio settings on the tv to PCM rather than Pass Thru. This did nothing and I can't hear any sound from the tv. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Hello apr122688,

Welcome to Community@ Insignia™!

 

The red/white RCA connections on the back of the TV are only inputs, not outputs, so they will not work for connecting your sound bar. To connect the sound bar you will need to use either the 3.5mm headphone audio out or the digital audio out. The sound bar has both of these connection types as well. 

 

So, you will need to use a 3.5mm audio cable to connect from the audio out connection on the TV to the source 2 on the sound bar. Or you can use a digital coaxial cable to connect between the Digital Output on the TV to the source 1 on the sound bar.
