BuRay DVD & Sound Bar & HD Cable Box

by marwich / December 31, 2012 7:01 AM PST

I have an HD TV with 2 HDMI ports, and HDcomcast box with 1 port. I just got a BluRay with 1 HDMI and the red white yellow ports, and a sound bar with 2 HDMI ports and1 aux in port. I don't know where to hook up the DVD to get picture? I have HDMI from sound bar to TV, HDMI from DVD to sound bar, HDMI from TV to cable box. My ports are all full & I have no picture from the DVD. What do I need to do?

Hit the return button and it sent it before I was done.

If the tv has an audio out port and it is the same type as the Sound bar aux port use that. You may have to change a setting on the tv audio out. Need more info on aux port on sound bar and tv audio outs if it has.

Thanx The Tv does have a red & whit plug, the aux cable that came with the sound bar is black into the bar & red & white. Yes, I want to be able to hear the TV and the DVD through the sound bar. So if I hook up the aux to the TV the DVD goes to TV HDMI? then what about cable box?

Brand and model of the TV and sound bar?

The tv's R/W audio out port to sound bar R/W should work. Like I said some tv's may require you to change an audio out put setting in the TV's menu area.
