Sound help with external speaker soundbar and TV speakers!!!

by TTUMBIO2010 / August 14, 2009 7:50 AM PDT

I have a soundbar that I have tried setting up to my Samsung UN55B8000 55" LED via the red/white audio cable. I hook it up to the back of the TV, go into the SOUND menu and select 'External Speaker' - but I hear nothing.

If I hook up the soundbar to my Samsung BDP-4600 the soundbar works fine and I hear sound.

I want it to work with the TV - what am I doing wrong? Thank you in advance!

Hooking up the speakers that way works but I was just wondering if it would work through the red/white connections on the TV also, but I guess its technically the same. Thank you for the help!
