LG Soundbar with optical only to TV with only HDMI

  RobinChubb 21:24 15 Jan 2015

HELP! Bought my dad a LG sounder to connect to his Panosonic TV, the only problem is that the sounder only has an optical connection on it, and the TV only has HDMI.

I have done quite a few searches trying to find an optical to HDMI cable but realise that there probably wont be one as hdmi deals with video as well as sound?!

Can someone help or suggest how I can connect the two devises. There is a 3.5 jack on the sounder but it says 'for service only' next to it. I did try connecting via yellow and red cable to the jack but without luck.

Any advice greatly appreciated.
