Connecting External Audio via Digital Optical:

- Once both ends of the cable have been connected, use the sound bar's remote control and press the 'DIGITAL' button to change the bar to the digital source
- Note: You also may use the source select button on top of the sound bar to cycle through the different sources until you reach the digital source.
