Input connectors: HDMI connections transmit digital audio
and video signals between devices. If you have source devices with
HDMI connectors, using them will provide the best possible audio and
video performance quality.

HDMI cable (not supplied) to connect it to the soundbar's HDMI ARC
TV Out connector. The soundbar will pass video from source devices
connected to its HDMI Input connectors, along with its own on-screen
information display to the TV. If your TV is equipped with the HDMI

audio cable to connect the stereo analog outputs of your TV, disc player
or cable/satellite tuner here.
Optical Input connector: If your TV, disc player or cable/satellite tuner
has an optical digital output, use the included optical cable to connect
IMPORTANT: Do not connect the power cord to an AC outlet until you
have made and verified all other connections.
