With just a little bit of effort, you can create an incredible cinematic experience right in your own living room! The steps listed and explained below will help you find solutions on how to connect the LG soundbar to Sony Bravia TV.

Steps in Connecting LG Sound Bar to Sony TV

Many TVs have internal speakers that are very good, but most people want better better audio experiences, hence the need to upgrade their audio system. Soundbars are always the resume gadget. Let’s go straight to the steps that will ensure a good collaboration between your TV audio system and your soundbar. Both devices are sold separately hence the need to check the following.

Step 1: Turn Off Devices

If you just got a new TV, congratulations. If it is your sound bar that is new, that’s good as well; but you have to turn off your TV to continue this process.

Step 2: Identify and Connect

Connect the power cord of the soundbar to an outlet and identify the ports on both devices that you will be using.

On the back of your SonyTV, you will find several ports including HDMI ports, digital audio out ports, and USB ports. The LG soundbar has several input and output ports as well, which can be found on the back of the device.

The next step is to determine whether or not your Sony Bravia TV has an ARC (Audio Return Channel) port. If it does not, you will need to purchase an optical audio cable in order to connect the soundbar to the TV. If your Sony Bravia TV does have an HDMI ARC port, you can use the HDMI cable to connect the two devices. Once you have identified the ports that you will be using, it is time to connect the devices.

If you are using an optical audio cable, connect one end of the cable to the digital audio out port on your Sony Bravia TV and the other end of the cable to the optical input port on your LG soundbar. If you are using an HDMI cable, connect one end of the cable to the HDMI out port on your Sony Bravia TV and the other end of the cable to the HDMI input port on your LG soundbar.

Once both devices are connected, turn on your Sony Bravia TV and the LG soundbar. The soundbar should automatically start to play audio from the TV. If it does not, press the input button on the soundbar until it displays the name of your Sony Bravia TV. You can then use the remote to control all of the functions of the soundbar. That’s all there is to it!

Step 3: Turn On Devices

First, turn off both the TV and the soundbar. Next, connect one end of the optical cable to the output jack on the back of the soundbar and the other end to the optical input jack on the back of the TV. Once connected, turn on both devices and adjust the volume on the soundbar as needed.

Step 4: Change Input Sources

Most newer LG soundbars include an HDMI input, which allows you to connect the soundbar directly to your Sony Bravia TV. This bypasses the need for a separate audio receiver and typically results in better sound quality. To change the input source on your LG soundbar, press the Source button on the remote control.

Then use the arrow buttons to select HDMI, and press the Enter button. You should then see the input selection screen on your TV. Select the HDMI input that corresponds to your soundbar, and press the Enter button. The audio from your TV will now be routed through your soundbar.

Step 5: Set Soundbar As Audio Output

Select the soundbar as the audio output device on the TV using the TV remote. To do this, turn off both the TV and the soundbar. Next, connect the HDMI cable from the soundbar to the HDMI port on the TV. Once the devices are connected, turn on the TV and soundbar. Select the input source that corresponds to the HDMI port that the cable is plugged into. The soundbar should now be working properly.

Step 6: Adjust Output Volume

The sound settings come in handy here. Open the LG soundbar’s menu and go to your Audio Output setting. Change the setting to “TV Audio.” Adjust the volume on the soundbar to your desired level.

There are two ways to connect your soundbar to your TV: wired and wireless.

  • Wired Connection: To connect your soundbar using a wired connection, you’ll need an HDMI connection cable. Connect one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your TV and the other end to the HDMI port on your soundbar.
  • Wireless Connection: To connect your soundbar wirelessly, you’ll need a wireless adapter. Connect the wireless adapter to the USB port on your soundbar and then connect the adapter to the Sony TV. Once your soundbar is connected to your TV, you’ll need to configure the audio settings. To do this, go to the Settings menu on your TV and select Sound. Under Sound, select Audio Output and then choose your soundbar from the list. You can now enjoy improved audio quality with your Sony Bravia TV!

The LG soundbar should now be connected to the Sony Bravia TV and you will be able to hear audio from the soundbar when watching TV shows or movies. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us for assistance or search Sony article ID right here which might come in handy.
