HDMI Cable

Connecting Soundbar to Sceptre TV Via HDMI and Optical Cable

In some cases, your TV and soundbars might have HDMI ports. But, if the HDMI input port on your TV doesn’t have an ARC function, it won’t be enough. You’ll also need to connect an optical cable to the devices. 

In that case, both your devices will have optical channels as well as the HDMI port.  Here, follow this process: 

  1. Turn off both your TV and soundbar. Connect the HDMI cable as mentioned before. 
  2. Take your optical cable and connect it to the optical input port of your soundbar. Connect the other end to the optical port of your TV. 
  3. Finally, turn your devices on and it will be connected to your TV. 

Connecting Soundbar to Sceptre TV Via Optical Cable

If your soundbar doesn’t have a HDMI port you can use just the optical cable. Verify if both your TV and soundbar have optical channels. If they do, you can just connect them using an optical cable in the previous process. The soundbar should be connected. 

Connecting Soundbar to Sceptre TV Via AUX Cable

Your soundbar might only have an AUX cable slot/ coaxial digital output. Then, you’ll need an analog audio cable. Similarly, you’ll have to connect it to both the TV and the soundbar. 

Sometimes, the soundbars might not have this analog input jack. Suppose it only supports optical cable connection. But, your TV only supports AUX cables. This is a common case in Samsung soundbars. 

So, if the ports don’t match, you’ll need to use an RCA to Optical audio converter. Connect your AUX cable to this converter. Then, connect the converter to the optical port of your soundbar. Then, you’ll get an equally smooth audio output. 

Other than that, you also need to know the best settings for your soundbar. It will enhance your audio experience. For example, the best settings for Samsung soundbars greatly enhance audio quality.
