Soundbar issues

by mick_bogz / March 1, 2014 4:18 PM PST

I have recently purchased a HW-f751 soundbar to compliment my ue40c6505 samsung tv. I need to run a PS3 and a Samsung 6500 blu ray player as well. I cant seem to get any sound whatsoever if I plug the HDMI cable to the out on the soundbar and the in on the TV. My PS3 and Bluray are connected directly to the tv by hdmi and work fine on the tv speakers. Anyone out there help please

Yeah, thanks just put an optical cable in works fine now, but can't understand why I needed to put the HDMI from the sound bar out to the tv in. Thanks for advice.
