Does your tv have a headphone socket?


It does,I tried that,it does work but the sound bar is really quiet even on maximum volume
It will work but you might end up with a bit of noise and hiss - Going from digital surround to rca stero is a stepdown - I would just get a new soundbar and punt the old one to be honest because i like my audio visual experience to be top notch.

Soundbars are a waste of time anyway they dont give you the proper 3d surround - why not invest in a nice surround sound setup - go to Richer sounds and visit their listening room - once you have heard true surround you will never look back.
I thought it was all a load of hogwash until i actually visited my local audio specialist decades ago and heard the 3d sound it blew me away.

You can get all the stuff you need off ebay quite cheaply , you dont need to splurge loads - Get yourself a Yamaha RXV365 from ebay for £50 and a set of surround speakers for around £50 - Dolby Atmos is the latest but i dont fancy cutting holes in my ceiling for the extra speakers and besides almost all broadcasts are still in the old Dolby Pro lol

You can just suck it and see but the circuit inside the box will probably introduce some unwanted noise at that price dude!
Buy cheap pay twice has always been my motto with things like electronics - I know I repair em lol

Have you tried turning up the volume of the headphone output from your TV sound settings?
